Ban on FFL handguns sales to nonresidents struck down!
Mance v. Holder, opinion in pdf. US District Court for the Northern District of Texas holds that the ban is unconstitutional on its face and as applied. A resident of Washington, DC (which now allows handgun in the home, if registered) wanted to buy a handgun from a Texas FFL, because there's only one FFL in DC and he charges $125 to do the paperwork. The seller had standing to sue in Texas, since would otherwise lose the sale. The court holds that the GCA prohibition on the sale fails strict scrutiny, and also intermediate scrutiny, and enjoins enforcement of the restriction. Another win for the industrious Alan Gura!
UPDATE: it's not clear to me how the ruling applies geographically. Clearly it applies in the Northern District of Texas. But it orders the Attorney General (any by extension anyone working under him) to stop enforcing the requirement, so may apply anywhere: if he enforced it in Maine or in Washington, he'd have violated the injunction, and could be held in contempt by the Texas court. Citizens' Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms was an organizational plaintiff (the court cites to it without the first word in its name), suing on behalf of its members, so the ruling would protect, at the very least, its members.
FURTHER UPDATE: the court's ruling is limited to purchases from an FFL. The gov't was citing problems that led to enactment of the interstate ban (felons from DC buying in Maryland) and the court notes the gov't can't come up with any more recent accounts. It probably had in mind the background check requirement for FFL purchases.
