I think everyone is too quick to want the judge to dismiss the case.

What isn't being realized that a decision on this case is substantial to preserve our 2nd Amendment rights and our right to defend ourselves. A dismissal doesn't address any of these issues. This case doesn't provide precedence if it is dismissed on technicalities. As much as its scary to think Kyle is convicted, I think its also equally as important that this case not be dismissed.

This case will not set any precedent either way no matter how the verdict comes out.

There are no arguments about the laws themselves. The arguments are weather Kyle's actions fall within them or not.

This is absolutely untrue. Every case provides precedent when a similar case gets brought up in the future. How this case turns out, provides a precedence for the next, and so on. That's how case law works. You cite how previous cases were ruled, to substantiate a decision to be made on the new one. These are usually cited in case memorandums and points of authorities to the courts.

If Kyle is found guilty, cases in the future would be swayed in their decisions based on Kyle's case. If Kyle is found not guilty, the same rule applies accordingly. Decisions are preceded by previous decisions made in similar cases before.

A case doesn't preserve your 2nd amendment rights.

Using your 2nd amendment rights preserves your 2nd amendment rights.

Exactly. Feel like prosecutors (& dem & their oprotives blm) want a mistrial at this point just to kill precedent.

That's a good point. Worst case scenario, if Kyle does get convicted - at least there's a solid path for appeal. Best case scenario - society relearns that if you fuck around, you find out.

There doesn't need to be precedent. Constitution is clear that civilians have the right to form an organized militia and bear arms. This right cannot be infringed. It doesn't matter what a judge say because any ruling against the 2nd Amendment is null and void. Cops that enforce unconstitutional laws should be shunned and forced to resigned or refunded entirely.
