Private defense lawyers, public defenders and appellate lawyers appointed by the Courts of Appeal to defend convicted felons will raise the same issues when defending people accused or convicted of violating gun laws. If they don't, they are incompetent.
Yes, and what is NOT wanted is more Gary Gorskys (of near-disaster Silviera fame). So part of the job will also be keeping radar for cases in which these issues might get raised (perhaps inappropriately or as a "shot in the dark") and talk/support such attorneys where necessary so they don't go "off the rails".
