Don Bird hopes to argue his Second Amendment case before the Supreme Court. Mr. Bird filed a lawsuit naming Cal. Gov. Grey Davis & several legislators after the passage of gun laws which he claims violates his rights. He now is asking the Supreme court to eithe rrule on his case or require the 9th circuit rule on it.

"Bird, who does not have an attorney, hopes his case is heard by the U.S. Supreme Court later this year.
Bird has labored on the case for more than two years now. According to the former Marine, he did all his own legal work and writing. Bird also funded the suit entirely on his own at an estimated cost of $5,000 for filing, refiling and copy costs."

$5,000???? He's only 5 grand in the hole & he's knocking on the Supreme Courts door? Kinda makes ya wonder about the NRA claiming not to have the cash to pursue certain cases involving Second Amendment rights, doesn't it? Perhaps they need to have Mr. Bird teach them about budgets & finance.
