Look at the 7th Circuit's order in Ezell, for an example of a court dutifully swallowing a bitter pill. Once the Supreme Court concludes that the people's RKBA includes public carry (in non-sensitive places), the vast majority of courts are going to fall in line. Yes, there will always be courts who interpret the Supreme Court's decisions narrowly. That is not unique to the RKBA -- think of all the decisions narrowing the right to obtain abortions. But I wholly disagree with your belief that judges in the Ninth Circuit will simply disregard Supreme Court precedent finding the RKBA includes public carry.

Take not lightly liberty
To have it you must live it
And like love, don't you see
To keep it you must give it

I will go now, and fight you."
