San Francisco Chronicle reporter Bob Egelko was interviewed about a case invoving the application of the Second Amendment by states and gun shows. The date of the interview is not known.

On January 15, 2009, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals heard oral argument in Nordyke v. King. The Court would decide if the ban by Alameda County, California, ban on gun shows on the county fairgrounds is unconstitutional. Gun show promoters Russell and Sallie Nordyke contended that the ban violates their First Amendment right of free speech and their Second Amendment right to bear arms.

The Alameda County Board of Supervisors passed the ban in 1999 after eight people were injured in a shooting at the 1998 county fair. In 2008 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. close
