    Some post argument analysis by Stephen Halbrook (https://www.stephenhalbrook.com/):

    Well, I'll just wait for the conclusion before I go out and set my hair on fire.

    Yes, they can walk away from the case by declaring it moot. There is longstanding doctrine that there must be an actual case or controversy for the SCOTUS to decide. If they find it moot, they will dismiss the case without a decision on the merits. There would most certainly be a majority or plurality opinion addressing mootness as well as a dissent by Gorsuch, Alito, Thomas and likely Kavanaugh though I can see Kavanaugh vote mootness if he knows the Chief is committed to that position, just to avoid further leftist criticism that he's in the tank for the conservatives. If they vote mootness, however, they still have to act on the petitions they are holding for Rogers, Gould and Cheeseman. If they grant cert in any of these cases, there's no way NJ or MA is going to moot the case by suddenly eliminating "justifiable need" for carry permits. I read the transcript. In my view, the Chief is going to wimp out and vote with the liberals on mootness and thus kick the can down the road once more.

    I quickly scanned that transcript. WAY too much focus on "mootness" by the liberal judges to suit me - pages upon pages of (in so many words), "gee, why are we even hearing this?". And there seem to be a LOT of interruptions showing great haste on the part of Sotomayer in particular to PUSH that point of view. To those of you more familiar with this process, help me understand... is that "issue" (mootness) still on the table? Can the judges merely say "we think it's a moot issue because the state has already tossed out that city law - therefore, we'll do nothing on this case"...? If they're still allowed to do that at this stage... it's seems like such an "easy out" - such a perfect dodge - for a big ol' squish like Roberts. Frankly? gun rights are so controversial these days, I think we need a 6/3 court so Roberts' squishiness is nullified in a sense. But, I guess we'll see what happens!

    Read the transcript. It is mostly the wise Latina saying stupid shit like... how could you be harmed by that part not being addressed by the new law? How would they even know if you had a gun in your car? Kegan steps in and say NY has a premises permit and a carry permit... if you wanted to transport your firearms why didn't they just get carry permits. "Well, transporting is a kind of carrying. You take your gun and it goes with you someplace. That's a kind of carrying." It's a bunch of bullshit and they should be embarrassed at being a supreme court justice and bringing these bullshit arguments as their A game. That's some I failed out of forensics class and tanked the LSATs kind of arguing there.

    Hey, I noticed a lot of you over the last few weeks are starting to put gun-related topics in the General Discussion forum. That's not what it's for. So, I'm doing a little "housekeeping" and moving those threads to other forums (with a directional link left in there so you can find the new location). Going forward, if it's a post that relates to some kind of national gun law... put it in the National Gun Law Discussion section, pls. If it's about guns, has no legal story angle, and doesn't fit elsewhere (and/or is political in nature), just open it in the 1A Lounge from the get-go. Thanks, everyone!

    Audio recording of arguments should show up here (not available as of this writing): https://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_audio/2019#cell02-00-2019

    Won't matter if the makeup changes, they don't decide then, they just publish then. And if you weren't around for oral arguments, you won't be on the list of people making the ruling. Transcripts of oral arguments should be available today for what it is worth. There's lots of people watching this one.

    Sounds like good job all around. School had an SRO in place, and seems like procedures as well. Student reported the gun to the SRO. SRO immediately did what he was there to do. The "good people" all go home safe. The question now is how did a 17yr old get procession of a handgun? I may be in the minority here, but if it belonged to a family member and was not secured, that family member needs to be held responsible.

    Ah, but who knows what political pressures can be brought to bear over the course of one month? I'd imagine a lot. Let's see what happens though... we don't know until we know. In the meantime, I can see that a steady, never-ending trickle of new lawsuits will be critically important to keep the pressure on and to increase the chances of one of them going to SCOTUS (particularly if they ever replace another justice and skew MORE even pro-2A - dare to dream!) So, in this season of giving... donate to your 2A orgs!!

    I second using those signs. I would just staple my target to the coroplast. It was always windy when I shot R14 and those signs would just wave nicely. I went through the trouble of making a pvc target stand, one day got it all set up just to have it blow over once the range went hot. Had to wait 20 minutes for the cease fire. While waiting looked over to the guy next to me with his targets all set up on those wire based signs and that was all it took.

    The latest episode of the mandolarian was pretty good. I like the Jack Ryan series. The first year was great..I'd say this second one is pretty good..it seemed a little short to me but worth checking out IMO

    I can't see how any rational person can buy their case provided that person doesn't have an agenda. We know the lib members but Kennedy is not a moron. We better hope the other justices convince him to not be so stupid and gullable here. I mean at what point will Americans start shooting at these guys as a last resort? If people feel desperate enough, and there are people like this out there, what is their avenue to vent other than to start shooting justices and lib politicians? Those shooters will have sympathetic ranks I believe

    CJ has nice facilities, but I wouldn't count their indoor range among them. Unless the redesigned the redesign, it's something like subsonic lead pistol ammo only. Before plunking down the coin to join, I'd go to a match on a weekend to observe and take a look around at what is busy and what is not. There are usually some pistol pits and one of the 200 or 300 yard ranges available most weekends. They definitely do not close the range in winter, although the weather (i.e. snow) may make it inaccessible for periods. The downside of CJ is that there's a lot of internal politics that are just a waste of everyone's time and sometimes money.

    Never seen one of those. I’d expect a lot of pushback in NJ. I’ve seen a bunch where the target is a life size turkey head molded from plaster. Bust the head (50 yds for pistol) and win a frozen turkey. The Pardini free pistol worked really well for that

    I have an AR-308 upper/lower set I've been sitting on for two years now. Have not settled on a cartridge for it, but if some great deal in .243 or 6.5cm comes along, it may get me to put that bitch together. Also looking, mostly window shopping, for a thermal scope with 640 lines, at least a 25mm objective, 30hz or better and a minimum of 10x magnification. As soon as I see one with good ratings with a cost around $3,000.00, I'ma jump on it. I really Really REALLY want to do some night feral hog hunting.

    We use their targets too, and just staple splatter targets on top. Ha... don't worry, if you make a minor mistake, the tower Nazi will "remind" you, we've all been there... that's why he makes the big bucks! Just buy theirs, it's also probably easier for the RO when he's checking the line, it's what he's use to looking for, versus some abnormal flag.

    Sunday January 26th is the Hunt. I'll be in the area on Saturday the 25th for frolicking at the winery tasting & the historical restaurant before hittin' the sack at a B&B in Mount joy, PA (about 15 min. from the boat ramp). Rooms are still available & the breakfast can't be beat! Wear yer sidearm at the dinning room table!

    I've been struggling to find a nice weekend when I'm not busy to go. Usually try for 8-9 AM arrival time cause it can get crowded. Still need to get some chronograph time in.

    You can buy fancy chamber flags but their zip tie flags are just fine. I prefer the zip tie flags because I store most of my firearms flagged. They are cheap and the flexibility lets me close the action most of the way or all the way on many of my rifles and shotguns.

    Up for sale is a Bull barreled 10/22 fully converted to fire 17hm2. It has the heavy bolt handle to cycle the rounds perfectly and a stainless bull barrel in a Magpul stock. $350 located in Wayne. Transfer is on you and will meet any local ffl. Also including the original 10/22 barrel and bolt handle so you can switch back and forth from 17hm2 to 22lr. Offer me trades never know what I may want.

    My county is having a vote on this on 12/9. The turnout is huge at 2A events here. Our Sheriff (and all of the others in the Shenandoah Valley) fully supports the 2nd Amendment Sanctuary movement.

    Load that table up. It's yours to do with it as you please. That guy on the mic is funny. But yea, he'll be quick to call out anything stupid. I use one of their targets, but I staple my own splatter targets over it so I can better see where I hit. If it's not windy, they work well. If the RSO knows you are picking up your own brass, they've sometime swept up my used brass into a pile behind me to make it easier to pick up. Cool folks. Red = Range is hot Green = Range is clear

    One more suggestion. Keep in your lane when you put out multiple targets. What looks like is in lane when you are down range can end up in your neighbor's lanes when you get back to to the line.

    Ditto everything Scorpio64 said and add some chamber flags. Whatever is on the table needs to stays open, saftey on with chamber flag inserted when cease fires are called.

    Plan ahead for cease fires, have all your targets and related gear off the bench and ready to go when they give you the green light to head down range. If you touch anything on the bench during a ceasefire, be prepared for a dressing down. If you are shooting out at 200 yds, put up multiple target stands. For rifle, I bring two 2'x4' sheets of Coroplast (corrugated plastic) and staple them to 5' landscaping stakes, driven well into the ground. I can put 4 to 16 targets on each. Coroplast holds staples very well but I prefer adhesive backed splatter targets with adhesive hole covers for speed. 200 yards seems like 2 miles when everyone is waiting for you to check or set up targets. I don't recommend their targets on a stick, the ones that you have to use a post hole digger to plant. They suck in so many ways. Difficult to see hits and half the time the wind rips them off the stake, or blows them over. All of their other targets are good. Those signs you see all over, on the sides of highways, the going out of business sale, I buy junk cars, political signs etc., they are made of coroplast, and make great target stands, especially if you hunt small game. Don't rent their spotting scopes, they are cheap to begin with and have been abused. A Harbor Freight el cheapo scope works better than theirs. If you save your brass, do not pick up anything over the red line while the range is hot. You can only pick up brass that lands over the line during a cease fire. After you check your targets, pick up brass before you cross the line and post a red flag. or is it green flag? fuck, whatever. Just pick up brass on the pad and on the dirt at the appropriate times. EDIT: You can shoot water filled containers. Seeing them explode at 200 yds is a real hoot. You can't shot soda bottles filled with soda, you can shoot a soda bottle you refilled with water. They are real strict with food targets, especially sugar. They wouldn't even let me shoot peeps bunny rabbits on a kebab stick.

    It's OK to set up multiple different targets. We set up a few at different distances, depending if it's for handgun or rifle. I also mix it up, and bring some filled soda cans and water bottles that I dye different colors. Just as a change from punching holes in paper.

    my first real win at atco was on a classic car sunday. all the gamblers race regulars were there. first round I lined up next to this amx. he'd put me on the trailer a few times on gamblers race night. anyway.... set the delay box, staged, got on the trans brake, and as soon as I saw his stage light on, I was up on the 2step. tree came down, and I was gone on the flicker of yellow on the last yellow. near perfect light, ran my number dead on, and put his ass on the trailer. I made it to semi's, and ran out. by almost a full tenth. that sucked. but I was happy as shit to have made it that far. speaking on gamblers night. you ever drive a 9.9 car, and have to handicap a bone stock 1989 crown vic? I did. know how fucking long that 9+ seconds feels?? depending on the cam, you coulda probably gotten easily into the low 11's with a 3500 stall, and a smaller carb.

    Even worse... is this really any different than what happens here? Like the gangbanger who shot up that all-night fair in Trenton... who, as it turns out, had been released from prison early for his "good behavior"? Can you imagine when all of these "progressive" states like California and New York finally get their wish fulfilled and the maximum number of prisoners have been de-institutionalized and put back on the street? I really hope that when all these murderers, rapists and pedophiles strike again (and many will, of course) that the new victims and their surviving families are able to sue state governments back into the stone age. Activists just kill me. We're at 30-year lows on the worst kind of violence. So, what's the brilliant plan?... release record numbers of prisoners from jails and prisons and flood them back onto the streets. Oh, the epic stupidity!
