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.
