While pro-abortion forces won Roe v. Wade, they made the error of not getting all the laws on the books at the time of victory expunged. As time has gone on, old laws have popped back into power as various rulings have eroded the precedent set in Roe v. Wade.
I understand the euphoria around Wilmette’s rolling over; we (the putative victors in DC v. Heller) need to start suing locales where these laws are on the books and unenforced. We need these laws completely off the books, such that any future backsliding doesn’t re-enable once-forgotten laws. Don’t make the mistake the pro-abortion groups made and consider this the victory; Wilmette needs to be sued, the laws need to be off the books (not just unenforced), and we need to do this post-haste.
One suggestion I’ve heard for taking on 922(o) is “donate a stamp”: at $200 a pop, people donate one NFRTR stamp to a legal fund. One person tries to file a Form 1 for a machine gun; once they’re denied, that person has standing.
