This is good news, in that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of constitutional rights.

This is also potentially bad news, given the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and their track record (the most overturned appeals court).

Still, with a 5-4 pro-gun majority on the SCOTUS, if it does go there it's in our favor. I can only hope that BHO will make a similar mistake that GHW Bush did when he appointed the now-retiring Souter.
