Ind. Decisions - "Seventh Circuit rejects as-applied Second Amendment challenge to § 922(g)(1), but suggests a non-violent felon might prevail"

So reads the heading to this Sentencing Law Blog entry, about the 7th Circuit's decision yesterday in US v. Williams (ILB summary here). The entry concludes:

It seems that the panel here in Williams may be essentially urging that a better candidate in the form of a non-violent felon, take a Second Amendment run at § 922(g)(1).
