  1. Well here is the case that those in NJ and NY and a few other states have been waiting for. www.scotusblog.com/2021/08/new-york-second-amendment-case-headlines-november-argument-calendar/
  2. NJ also signed a brief for the NY case. Here is one horror story about a NJ physician trying to get a CCW and was denied. Dr. Joseph A. Racanelli is a physician and maintains offices in New Jersey and New York. He is on-call for emergency trauma and responds to hospitals at various hours. On or about May 8, 2013, in Newark, New Jersey, he was walking alone on a Newark street when gunmen chased him until he threw his vehicle keys and bag to them. His vehicle was taken and, although recovered the next day, personal items he had in his bag and/or his vehicle were not recovered. The items included his identification cards, driver's license, equipment, medications, a substantial amount of cash, and his laptop, which contained personal information. In the Matter of the Application for a Permit to Carry a Handgun Filed by Joseph A. Racanelli, 2015 WL 3843562, *1 (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div. 2015). In support of his application for a permit to carry a handgun, Dr. Racanelli explained that, given the gangs in Newark and the loss of his items with his home address as a result of the 2013 robbery, he feared for his and his family's safety at home. He noted that there had been suspicious incidents related to his Newark office and these included people entering his office who did not fit the description of patients he would expect and telephone callers asking when he would be in the office. Id. at *2. Dr. Racanelli’s permit application was denied. Both the Chief of Police and the Superior Court Judge that heard his appeal found that Dr. Racanelli had not shown that he had “justifiable need” to obtain a permit to carry a handgun.
  3. This case is heating up fast. Here's the latest brief from the Independent Women's Law Center. There must be 40 briefs to support it. The latest is from a group not usually associated with firearms. Even a governor sent a brief. www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/20/20-843/184501/20210721131443123_IWLC%20Amicus%20Brief.pdf There was another brief from a Black Rights Group, but inside of it was this brief account by Mary Thomas (mother of Isaiah Thomas). This scheme would almost certainly deny a concealed carry license to someone like Mary Thomas, mother of basketball legend Isaiah Thomas, who raised her family in the housing projects of Chicago’s west side. See Nicholas Johnson, Negroes and the Gun, at 333-334 (Prometheus Books 2014). Mary battled “the gang culture that has captured and destroyed so many black boys.” Id. at 333. “he refused to cede the problem or the solution to some local bureaucrat or some far-off federal program.” Id. Instead, Mary chose to protect her family from the street violence that plagued her community by using the threat of violence. When the thugs came after her boys, they were answered by the dangerous end of Mary’s shotgun and her warning, There’s only one gang here and that’s the Thomas gang.”
  4. This was in the NRA-ILA, nice hearing about some house members sticking up for it. www.nraila.org/articles/20210720/nra-ila-applauds-rep-claudia-tenney-and-us-house-of-representatives-amicus-brief-supporting-second-amendment-case-before-supreme-court Darn I just checked and there are 220 Republicans in the House. You'd think Claudia would have got more than 175 signers only!
  5. Well I read most of the docket for the NYSRPA and this is another case like last time when NYC got the state to change the law while leaving the NYC law intact. Well it appears that a judge was creating artificial "restricted licenses" by writing 'Hunting & Target' on the permit. I don't think that members of SCOTUS will let that maneuver pull the wool over their eyes, especially considering what NYC did last time.
  6. Now we got a real case before SCOTUS. Not like 2 years ago when they rejected even designating hearing those 8 cases. Now the NY Rifle case has been granted certiorari! That means that have to hear it and make a real decision one way or the other. If a majority passes it Cuomo will be really upset. Even if the head justice votes against it we should still have a majority. Now it is a bit of reading from both sides 160 pages! You can search online for some abbreviated stories. Plus that will help the NJ may/shall issue case before the court. www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/20/20-843/183836/20210713165345228_NYSRPA%20v.%20Corlett%20Joint%20Appendix%20Corlett__final.pdf
  7. Well here is the the 1st salvo by Garland to screw with NJ citizen's gun rights. https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/20/20-812/172156/20210317141108409_Folajtar Opp 3.16.pdf
  8. Let's not forget on this one that a WOMAN was murdered due to NJ pokey gun laws. This is the year of the woman right? Last year when the court blew off the 8 gun cases but they were not all from NJ! There are 4 on their way to SCOTUS and by the end of the year there might be 4 more. The weight of those cases from one state will have to create some judicial thought. Will they be able to continue to fail to affirm every case?
  9. Well here is the latest update on this case. They are going for all the marbles. Here's a link. If you don't want to read all 22 pages, just go to page 19 where they lay it all out in our kind of language. https://www.courtlistener.com/docket/18703496/mazahreh-v-grewal/
  10. A family friend from NJ just inherited some registered firearms from an older relative in NM that just died. He wants to bring them to NJ, but I'm worried he may just get a U-Haul to truck them to our state. The deceased relative purchased them legally. Should I tell him that he should just have them shipped FFL to FFL? John
  11. I had to show this wagon because one of my friend's father had one, although not in the condition below. I remember he asked to take us for a ride on RT 287 in NJ in the mid '70s. At that time going up towards Bedminster was still pretty light in traffic, especially after working hours. Well 3 or 4 of us were trying to find a polite way of declining because what teenager wanted to tool around in a station wagon. They weren't cool. Well we learned a thing or two about engines, especially when he opened it up on the Interstate! I couldn't believe a stodgy, heavy wagon could move like that! 1969 Chevrolet Kingswood 427 Station wagons are not usually thought of as muscle-cars, but the Kingswood deserves the label as it is a proper pavement punisher. In 1969, if you were picky with the options packages, you could order the big family truckster with the 427 cubic-inch Turbo-Jet V8, pushing 390-horsepower through a four-speed manual transmission. With all the kids strapped in, and despite weighing more than all the moons of Jupiter, the Kingswood could achieve a 0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds. That’s not bad for a wagon the size of Texas designed for family hauling. "And some like two guns. But one's all you need if you can use it..." - Shane I have to repeat something. We're talking a station wagon off the line, not one of these one-offs that were made for racing by the car companies. "0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and run the quarter-mile in 15.6 seconds." Remember in 1969 the Kawasaki Mach III 500 had these numbers. It packed 50 odd HP and 12 second quarter mile times into a $999 package! www.cycleworld.com/sport-rider/1969-kawasaki-mach-iii-500/
  12. Well it seems that they just got a case to go to District Court with carry. The NRA is taking some certified instructor that wanted a CCR but was turned down. I don't know why we just don't go straight to SCOTUS, because we know the district and circuit courts will turn the case down. I would love NJ to one of the 1st new shall states with our new SCOTUS majority. :)
  13. You know I'm agreeing with you. Right now the Court is split 4-4 and Roberts has to break ties to pass conservative opinions. I guess he's waiting for Ginsburg to go on permanent retirement, so Trump can appoint another Conservative Justice so he's not responsible to break ties.
  14. I am so pissed off at Alito. A military man and was in the law enforcement too. He's from Hamilton, NJ and voted for Heller, etc. Why did he screw us over with the Rogers case? I expected the lib side to screw us but Alito?
  15. Now I have another question that I asked a few lawyers. Even with the wishy-washy attitudes of Justice Roberts we still have 4 Conservative Justices on the Court. Sounds like those gun cases in conference for certiorari should be able to get out of conference.
