So why the press release?

Seems this law firm can only falsify history rather than represent it.

(You also have to be careful with online sources, I remember one case I had where the various online sources actually had different versions of a vital case where a vital paragraph was “edited” except in the orignal reference source.)

seems the firm is more concerned with PR than actually representing their client.

“The opinion of the Federalist has always been considered as of great authority. It is a complete commentary on our Constitution, and is appealed to by all parties in the questions to which that instrument has given birth...”
- The U.S. Supreme Court, Cohens v. Virginia (1821).

[note: no mention of the Anti-Federalist]

Also...

“Little more can reasonably be aimed at, with respect to the people at large, than to have them properly armed and equipped; and in order to see that this be not neglected, it will be necessary to assemble them once or twice inthe course of a year.” - Federalist Paper 29, Hamilton

If this law firm is representing DC then you know that it’s a collection of fellow travelers.One can certainly count on them citing “international law” many times in the argument.

The elites decide that the American people should be disarmed? If so, let’s see them enforce it. There are a hell of a lot of American citizens who will “take issue” with such an attempt, and who “will not go gently into that good night.” There is no surer path to a revolution or a civil war than the attempted disarmament of a free people. Remember Lexington and Concord, 1775. The “shot heard ‘round the world” was the report of a gun fired by a man who wanted to be free.

There's no way to use legitimate "Constitutional Sources" to support this case.

Meanwhile they'd just PO'd one of the largest groups of potential customers in the Nation.

Bye bye Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld.

One of their "fields" is advising cities and towns on how to retain their military bases under the BRAC process. I hope every one of them loses a base to some "arms rights friendly" location.

"This case has great implications for gun laws across the country," said Tom Goldstein, the head of Akin Gump's Supreme Court practice.

At least they've got one thing right. And of course that scares them Shiiteless.

This could actually help the people fighting the DC ban, they can review the same documents and prepare to counter anything the DC lawyers provide.

Wow. Thank you so much for posting this. This is the first I’ve heard of the ConSource site. The demo looks fabulous. “Full access to the site and collections will be available on Constitution Day, September 17, 2007.” It’s going to rock. I can’t wait!

This is good that the founding documents and the surrounding discussions are being used in this case.

If this becomes precedent, then the next thing to push is a Constitutional Review of most Federal programs/powers with respect to the

Enumerated Powers of Article I, Section 8, and the 10th Amendment which further clarifies A1.8.
