Dennis Henigan's Selective Memory on Litigation

Trying to claim that the refusal to hear Heller II is the downfall of the pro-rights 2A cases, he selectively does not mention the losses his side has faced in Chicago like in McDonald v Chicago and the most recently the 7th Circuit bitch slapping the city took in Ezell v Chicago. Then there's San Fransisco's attempt to dismiss the case against them denied.

So for those who actually are honest and are paying attention, no, the cases aren't batting 1000. Only a fool would expect them to be. But the majority of the important cases are moving ahead as planned or even better than planned.

All the while, the NRA actually has the money to run all these cases simultaneously andthe Brady Campaign can't find a president masochistic enough to take up their cause nor afford to support more than one case at a time. How much of their resources did it take to fight the FL gag law? How many more can they do w/ their declining resources?

This line is telling in that the Brady's reall haven't changed their goals in the face of overwhelming legislative and litigative defeats across the nation over the last decade plus:
all the gun lobby has had to show for its efforts is a growing body of case law affirming the right of the people to have strong gun laws short of a total handgun ban."
"Short of". Yeah. And we're going to bash those laws down in time as well.

They are on the retreat, and the anti-gun lobby has found themselves powerless. Really all the losses in our side has been in the courts, and not in lawmaking, or public referendum.

This is a VERY bad place for them to be.
