Maloney v. Rice- the eternal NY nun-chuck case coming to a close (hopefully)
 
For anyone who does not know about this case. Maloney v. Rice is a challenge to New York's nun-chuck ban. It is and has been litigated pro se by attorney Jim Maloney for 11 years. It is one of the three cases that the Supreme Court accepted cert on as to whether the Second Amendment is incorporated to the States. As we all know the Court took McDonald and stayed this case and Nordyke. Afterwards the McDonald ruling the Supreme Court vacated the ruling of the Second Circuit and the case was remanded back to the Northern District Court in New York. This is a link to his website that links to the lower court docket.

briefing has been completed and now we are just waiting on the Court to either ask for arguments or enter a decision without them.

Let's show some support for the last of the three original Second Amendment
gladiators as he awaits a decision.

The governments only real argument is nun-chucks are "dangerous and unusual'". if the court buys that, I hope he takes this case back to the Second because this guy deserves a win. Moreover if the government thinks it can ban two pieces of wood attached together with a chain what do you think it really feels about guns.

Let’s hope this law doesn’t get overturned. Before this law happened, nun-chuck beating were rampant in the streets. Gangs of ninjas ran wild and did what they pleased…under the shadow of the night… to any poor innocent children caught out too late. Please, think of the children.

The 2nd CA is dragging their feet to not accept the 2A as the SCOTUS directed?

I can't figure out what's been going on in this case since it was remanded after McDonald. Can someone explain?

Arm equals Arms. Arms are knives, sticks, bows and arrows, guns and boolits, halbards, ...

Yeah, soooo many bloody nun-chaku massacres were happening that they had to outlaw them.

Only in NY.

basically he has been fighting at the district court to show a complete ban on nunchucks is unconstitutional in light of the Supreme Court finding there is a individual right to bear arms. He has finished briefing and is waiting for a ruling form the district court or for oral arguments to be scheduled.

Don't forget that to get a NYC firearms permit you need to make sure you know that nunchucks and ninja stars are illegal.
