Alameda County gun show ordinance upheld by appeals court
See, there was a reason there was just a link in the first post...
Please do not post whole articles - see http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=363956
We are still in the "one (short) paragraph and a link is low-risk." mode, despite appropriate legal action against the major risk provider. Righthaven is not the only offender…

The end band hearings are where we can expect the other side to show up and surrender in manners that will technically be wins for us so to deny our ability to appeal directly to the SCOTUS.
The original attacks on gun shows started way back probably in the late 80s. The real reasons to attack the gun shows had to do with shutting down gun rights political activism.
This started at a time when many people were not on the internet, thus gun forums at the time were alot smaller than they are now.
The key issue that we must remember is the other side is on defense and in war if you are in defense, it is because you are losing.
The other side is going to spin our victories as their victories as much as they can. In reality this is a blessing because what they will do in the process is spin that favorable rulings for us are reasonable.
They did that with both Heller and MacDonald, so in order not to report our wins as significant victories they have surrendered the middle political ground.
They have also given us a means to peel of support from some on the political left.
The bottom line is our opponent's pride, ego, arrogance and ignorance won't allow them to admit the truth, so they have to spin things.
In spinning things they turn a flesh wound into a head wound.
