This case of a Wisconsin man sent to prison for deer hunting is going to test the 1996 federal law which bans for life possession of a gun by anyone convicted of domestic abuse. I believe Judge Sykes got this right. While Heller does allow for some regulation of firearms, she hits the nail on the head that the allowance of such exceptions doesn't relieve the government of its burden of justifying laws that restrict Second Amendment rights."
While preventing domestic abuse is a noble cause, Sykes is right in rejecting the notion here that the government can simply say the end justifies the means in this case. They're gonig to have to show that the law isn't excessive. If her ruling is used as precedent to apply to all gun regulation, this ruling could be a huge victory for gun rights.
