Maybe the ACLU will suddenly realize that challenging government overreach in the firearms world can be profitable.

Late to the party, but I don't think this suit will mean very much because cities like Cranston have annual budgets in excess of $311M.
A 250K suit is 0.08% of the city's annual budget and it took six years to litigate. Just over 0.013% of the budget, so from a risk management perspective, it's a very worthwhile expense to see if you could get courts to agree with city's arguments on extreme risk and prevention of domestic violence.
(Not saying it's right, just explaining the position the city might take and why these actions might not be deterred by this suit.)
Please support the SF "Help Mike!" campaign to raise legal fees for a 72 year old Texas teacher and hobby rancher who had 6 forgotten 9mm rounds in his checked luggage leaving T&C and faced 12 years in prison and $50k legal fees at https://fundrazr.com/b2KZgc.
So, of the $250k settlement, he gets $31k. Doesn't say if he got the guns back either
Besides the $250K settlement, how much did the city also have to shell out (taxpayer $$) to litigate this losing court case?
