And you got your clients their gun shows back. With guns. Nice work and thanks.

That is a completely different set of facts from the Court holding a party to an interpretation of the law made by outside counsel in the Court of Appeals after the close of evidence.
This is simple, the Ninth Circuit hated this case. The County gave them an excuse to shut it down and they took it.
