Seegars v. Ashcroft

Triggerfinger has done an exceptional job in gathering all the material he could on this case. Seegars v. Ashcroft is a case challenging D.C.'s almost total ban on firearms possession. It's the NRA's attempt to not be outdone by two lawyers from the Cato Institute & is inferior to the Cato lawyers case (Parker v D.C.) Both cases lost on the first go round. On Wednesday November 17th the Seegars v. Ashcroft appeal will be heard.

Triggerfinger &/or a friend will be live blogging the proceedings. Be sure to hit Triggerfinger's tip jar as the documents he provided did not come cheap.
