"What has been going on – not only in the courts but in other parts of government – is a campaign of “massive resistance to this court’s decisions,” Clement said. Officials and judges, he added, “have simply been unable to break habits formed during pre-Heller days.” There has been a concentrated effort, he asserted, at “limiting the scope of the Second Amendment to the precise circumstances at issue” in the two Supreme Court cases"

Can the NRA win before SCOTUS? I sure hope so.

"Officials and judges have simply been unable to break habits formed during pre-Heller days.”

What a crock of crap. Paul Clement is a superstud, and if he wants to create a way for the rebellious courts to "save face", that's fine if it works, but nobody with a brain could believe this.

Absolutely true... until people in positions of authority begin to be charged with contempt of court though, you'll see the lower courts drag their feet.

...same goes for some state legislatures passing laws that fly in the face of current case law.

Not sure if there should be another thread on this-the article didn't even say what case Clement was briefing.
Anyways that case is NRA v. BATFE dealing with 18-21 y/o being unable to buy handguns from licensed dealers. The NRA also has a TX CCW case, also 18-21 y/o, NRA v. McGraw.
Both are at SCOTUS now: http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/13-137.htm
http://www.supremecourt.gov/Search.aspx?FileName=/docketfiles/13-390.htm

The McGraw brief asked that BATFE be held until the McGraw briefings are complete. It seems SCOTUS is going along with that request, as BATFE briefings have been completed for over a month with no conference date set. Perhaps a good sign?

What an idiot. (The author)

Acts like the Supreme Court created a new right out of thin air with the Heller/McDonald cases.

I hope this improves the situation we're in with courts.

Well the lower courts with few exceptions are treating Heller as a right created out of thin air-that's why they won't expand Heller beyond its facts.
