Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction and sentence for possessing a handgun is affirmed where: 1) the federal ban on juvenile possession of handguns, 18 U.S.C. section 922(x)(2)(A), does not violate the Second Amendment and the court reaffirms the holding in US v. Cardoza, 129 F.3d 6 (1st Cir. 1997) that the section does not exceed Congress's Commerce Clause authority; and 2) defendant's sentencing challenge is moot as he is no longer in detention or under juvenile supervision.
