Abstract: 

Our regular review of important court decisions includes appellate rulings that a county’s failure to return firearms, removed due to order of protection, after that order was dismissed, resulted in valid Second Amendment claim; and a Fourth Circuit ruling that a ban on firearm possession for domestic violence misdemeanants that does not have good behavior exception, nevertheless does not violate the Second Amendment. Included: Henry v. County of Nassau, 6 F.4th 324 (2d Cir. 2021); Harley v. Wilkinson, 988 F. 3d 766 (4th Cir. 2021).
