Only three remaining possible ones SCOTUS may pick up this year. Any bets as to what makes it Tuesday?

Cases:


1) "Right to bear arms outside the home without .gov 'reason'"
first direct challenge to a "may-issue" concealed carry firearms law in the United States
Woolard v. Gallagher

2) "Interstate Handgun Purchases
If the plaintiffs succeed, residents of any State will be able to buy any handgun that can be legally sold in any other State and take possession of it directly, regardless of any law that may prohibit sales or purchase, but not ownership, of that type of weapon.
Lane v. Holder

I just moved to TX from MD and have been following Woollard since July 2010 when the case was filed. It is being driven by the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and we're fortunate to have Alan Gura as counsel.

We will know tomorrow, 10/15, if the Supreme Court will hear Woollard. This is an important case, not just for those in no and may-issue states. Many Federal Courts have been recalcitrant in expanding 2A rights beyond the home in the post-Heller era. A discretionary issue case ala Woollard would address this.

"If" the Woollard Petition is denied tomorrow, there are cases percolating up through the Circuit Courts to come behind, including Drake, another SAF driven case from NJ (CA3).

Unfortunately, Woollard was denied cert today. The hope for 'may-issue' states and a national recognition of the 2A right outside the home (post-Heller) now lies in CA3 (Drake), DC-District (Palmer) and CA9 (Peruta, Richards, Baker). Drake has run the cycle through the District and Circuit courts, a Petition to the Supreme Court will be forthcoming by 11/27/13.

Abramski (FFL Straw Purchase regs when the ultimate possessor is legal) petition for cert was GRANTED today. We await the Merit phase and oral arguments in the Spring. All filings for the Supreme Court petition phase are available if you would like to read up on this one.
