Judge Laurence Silberman Shaped Second Amendment Jurisprudence

The influential jurist, who has died at age 86, sat for decades on the
U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

Laurence Silberman, an influential conservative during a long career as an
appeals court judge and federal government official, died Sunday at his
home in Washington, D.C., 10 days before his 87th birthday.

Judge Silberman died of natural causes, his son, Robert Silberman, said.

Judge Silberman sat for decades on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the
District of Columbia Circuit, often called the second-most powerful U.S.
court because it hears many challenges to federal regulations and has sent
many of its members onto the Supreme Court.
....
In 2007, he wrote an appeals court opinion finding that a District of
Columbia ordinance regulating gun ownership was unconstitutional. The
ordinance effectively banned handguns and required that rifles be
disassembled or disabled by trigger locks in the home.

Nixon's Deputy AG after the Saturday Night Massacre;
recruited Scalia into the Ford administration;
Reagan appointee to the DC Circuit;
encouraged Clarence Thomas to join that court;
Amy Coney Barrett clerked for him in the 1990s;
when he took senior status,Brett Kavanaugh filled his seat.
By their friends shall ye know them.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
