CASE ENTRY

Kanter v. Barr

Man is convicted of falsely representing that his company’s therapeutic shoe insoles were Medicare approved. As a felon, he is prohibited by both federal and Wisconsin law from possessing firearms. A Second Amendment violation? Seventh Circuit: Mail fraud is a serious crime; no problem here. Dissent: You can take guns away from felons who are dangerous, but not from those who are merely unvirtuous.
