== Intent ==
+
This suit seeks to do two things.
+
 
+
1. "Good Cause" shall be interpreted such that "self defense" is more than enough "Good Cause."
+
 
+
2. "Good moral character" shall be interpreted to mean "not otherwise prohibited from buying or possessing firearms" under the common understanding of that term (felon in possession, no 5150 bar, etc.)
+
 
+
A third but not explicit item is that ''may'' really means ''shall''.
