Name: U.S. v. Hancock
Opinion Date: 10/26/2000
Court: US Court of Appeals
District 9 Cir
Citation: 231 Fed.3d 557

There was no equal protection violation in making only certain misdemeanors subject to the prohibition on firearms possession. Strict scrutiny is not applied to Second Amendment limitations per se, and there was a rational basis for prohibiting persons convicted of domestic violence from possessing firearms.
