Umm, no. The last big gun owner fiasco was the 9th Circuit embedding their decision that gun rights are "collective" into a case that had nothing to do with gun ownership rights!!! The reason why they did it was because the 5th Circuit in Texas ruled the gun rights were "individual". By ruling contrary to the 5th Circuit, the 9th Circuit guaranteed the Supreme Court would have to hear a case regarding the right to own guns -- is it collective or individual? Well, we now know, the SC recently decided it was indeed an "individual" right, overturning the 9th Circuit Court ... yet, again.

I am very suspeciuos of this recent 9th Circuit ruling.
