7th Circuit Court of Appeals
Case Name: United States of America v. Blair Cook
Case No.: 18-1343
Officials: FLAUM, MANION, and ROVNER, Circuit Judges.
Focus: 2nd Amendment Violation
A jury convicted Blair Cook of being an unlawful user of a controlled substance (marijuana) in possession of a firearm. See 18 U.S.C. 922(g)(3). Cook appeals his conviction, contending that the statute underlying his conviction is facially vague, that it improperly limits his Second Amendment right to possess a firearm, and that the district court did not properly instruct the jury as to who constitutes an unlawful user of a controlled substance. We affirm Cook's conviction.
