A pioneering gun rights case comes to a close
The final chapter of a trailblazing Second Amendment lawsuit appears to have been written. Yesterday a full panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit issued its decision in Nordyke v. King, upholding an Alameda County, California gun control ordinance regulating gun shows at the county fairgrounds. The case first originated more than a decade ago when gun show promoters Russell and Sallie Nordyke filed a Second Amendment challenge against the county's 1999 ban on the possession of firearms on county owned property, a law enacted primarily to prevent any guns from being sold at the fairgrounds. The Nordykes' suit didn't really pick up steam until 2008, however, when the U.S. Supreme issued its decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which struck down Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban and ruled definitively that the Second Amendment secures an individual right, not a collective one, to keep and bear arms.

Good deal, a win for our side!!!
Not really. After all, this is the PRK. What I read was that the Alameda said that all weapons must be secured with a cable to the bench, among other things.
There will be an incident when and undercover operative for the city/county/state finds an unsecured weapon and it's all over.
Hopefully we don't have to face that situation in the future.
