Alameda Gun Ordinance to Go Before Full 9th Circuit Appeals Court

The quest for the rights of ordinary, hardworking Americans to carry bazookas and roll Abrams tanks across government property continues its slow advance. 

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has  agreed to revisit an Alameda County couple's claim that a law banning guns on county land infringes on their Constitutional rights.

Russell and Sallie Nordyke originally filed suit in federal court after the county ordinance was first passed back in 1999. A U.S. District Court judge ruled against their claims that the law violated their First Amendment rights to express “gun culture” through a gun show the Nordykes had hosted at the county fairground since 1991.
