    Alan Gura is the lawyer who won both the Heller v DC AND the McDonald V Chicago case. Here is the next case he has filed.

    Alan Gura's next case has a name. The official title is Bateman et al v.
    Perdue et al, Case No. 5:10-cv-265, and it was filed yesterday with the
    United States District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina,
    Western Division.

    The named plaintiffs are Michael Bateman, Virgil Green, and Forrest Minges,
    Jr as well as Grass Roots North Carolina and the Second Amendment
    Foundations. They are seeking to overturn the North Carolina General Statue
    that forbids the carrying, possession, sale or purchase of firearms and
    ammunition during declared states of emergency.

    Specifically, they are asking the U. S. District Court for:

    An order permanently enjoining defendants, their officers, agents, servants,
    employees, and all persons in active concert or participation with them who
    receive actual notice of the injunction, from enforcing N.C. Gen. Stat. =A7=A7
    14-288.7, 14-288.12(b)(4), 14-288.13(b), 14-288.14(a), and 14-288.15(d),
    forbidding the carrying, possession, sale or purchase of firearms and
    ammunition during declared states of emergency.

    In February 2010, the City of King and Stokes County declared a state of
    emergency due to heavy snowfall and local power outages. The proclamation
    from the City of King forbade the sale or purchase of firearms and
    ammunition, as well as the possession of firearms and ammunition off an
    individual's premises. If you had a North Carolina Concealed Handgun Permit,
    it didn't matter as the state of emergency proclamation superceded it.

    You can read the main filing here.

    It's a good case and if you look at what was decided in the case against New Orleans and the gun confiscation during the Katrina catastrophe, he has a good chance of winning the argument.
