Petition for Rehearing in 9th Circuit's Recent 2nd Amendment Case

Plaintiffs' attorney Gary Gorski filed a request for rehearing today in Silveira v. Lockyer, the recent case upholding California's ban on assault weapons which states that the 2nd Amendment does not confer the right to own guns to individuals. Mr. Gorski says that if rehearing is denied, or if he loses on the merits, he'll take his fight to the Supreme Court. The Supremes might take it up, because the Ninth Circuit is now in conflict with the Fifth. Read about the request for rehearing here, or a longer article about Mr. Gorski here.
