    Postak San Francisco: New hearing set on fairgrounds gun ban

    A federal appeals court in San Francisco set aside its ruling Wednesday the only one of its kind in the nation that allowed private citizens to claim a constitutional right to bear arms in challenging state and local gun laws.The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new hearing on a challenge by gun show promoters to a ban on firearms at the Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton. The plaintiffs say the ban, which county supervisors enacted in 1999, violates free speech and the constitutional right to possess guns.

    Angry A forced withdrawl?

    Does anyone else see the current anti-gun administration's hand in this? The only ruling that affirmed the 2cd is withdrawn so the conflicting rulings become a unified "no-right" and therefore don't need to go to the SCOTUS to decide the conflict. How much you want to bet the new decision that comes out supports the 7th District's decision.
