    For those of you who couldn't make the last week's VCDL meeting, a 30
    minute video of the talk by attorney Alan Gura, who argued the DC vs
    Heller case in front of the Supreme Court, is up!

    Many thanks to Matt Gottshalk with McGee Digital Media, Inc. for the
    video and to VCDL webmaster John Pierce for putting it on the VCDL web
    site:

    Excellent!
    When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

    I'm sure this will be good. downloading now.
    "A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    Well, I have this to say, after watching it - the man is a strategist, which is what we need.

    He is completely wrong about machine guns, but I understand why he is trying to discourage machine gun suits at this time. I think he knows that the 86 MG ban is clearly unconstitutional, but he is correct that challenging it right now would be poor strategy. So, he talks out of both sides of his mouth a little bit (he is a lawyer, remember; they're good at that) and tries to keep people from jumping for the biggest piece of cheese in the rat trap.

    I fully expect that the time will come, after incorporation, after awb challenges, after registration requirements and may-issue licensing challenges, that either the '86 registry closure or some of the NFA requirements themselves (or both) will be successfully challenged, with enough precedent behind it to establish machine guns as protected arms. But, that won't be soon, and if someone tries to do it before establishing all the ground-work, Gura is exactly right - it'll backfire badly.

    Other-wise, he was dead on.
