“Tenth Circuit to Tackle Second Amendment Appeal”

Peter Krumholz of the Rocky Mountain Appellate Blog has this post about an interesting Second Amendment case recently briefed in the Tenth Circuit.

The appellants are challenging a Colorado statute that (a) bans magazines with more than 15 rounds and (b) “requires, among other things, that if a law-abiding citizen wishes to loan a firearm to a friend, they must first go to a gun store together for a background check; when the firearm is returned, they must repeat the process.” The district court rejected their Second Amendment challenge.

Apparently, this will be the Tenth Circuit’s first opportunity to consider a Second Amendment challenge to generally applicable gun laws since the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in District of Columbia v. Heller.

We’ll be watching this appeal with great interest…
