well.. that's "interesting".... So one of the questions put to the court is whether a police officer has a right to self defense, I suppose under the 2a? Be interesting to follow... on the one hand courts have fallen all over themselves declaring police officers to be above average citizens as far as owning, buying, bearing arms. On the other, courts in liberal jurisdictions also tend to be fairly antagonistic towards any police use of force. Will follow and see all the cognitive dissonance rising to the top in the court's opinions.

This will be an interesting case. Do they continue to hold cops above the rest of us or will they not want to expand the 2nd Amendment outside the home.

Based on the questions posed and comments made by the three judge panel to counsel, I would be surprised if Mahoney prevails.

Thanks for posting the video.
