  1. From all the docs I read, argument means they all get together for oral argument. The mootness thing was decided in conference. Even after argument in December, they will continue talking and writing until a vote occurs.
  2. Not around here they don't, otherwise why all the questions on mootness?
  3. Here is some potential good news. The following link show %'s of Supreme Court decisions where they reversed lower court decisions. Regarding NJ & NY, They have reversed the 2nd and third court of appeals 60-70 % of the times. That's a pretty percentage for us. https://ballotpedia.org/SCOTUS_case_reversal_rates_(2007_-_Present) John
  4. Here's are the NRA-ILA that explain NYC last hope for refusing to hear the case. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20190920/us-supreme-court-schedules-nra-supported-second-amendment-case-for-argument What people have a hard time in understanding the reasons. Any time a law is passed that conflicts with the Constitution, then a judicial decision is required. It is not enough for the municipality to cancel the law. That is because they can always re-instate that law.
  5. I should have explained it better. There are only seven ranges in NYC but you have about 16,300 premises licenses. That's about 2500 folks per range. You couldn't get all those people into what's available. The range question is not THE REASON but just one of them. You are correct in your last point. There are only 2 permits in NYC, a carry permit and the premises permit which limits you to your home. That's also why one of the questions the justices will ask is why doesn't the Commerce clause apply in this case? https://www.wnyc.org/story/visit-nyc-firing-range-hear-gun-owners/
  6. When you get right down to the nuts and bolts of this case, it's not really about the 2nd Amendment. With a tiny fraction of New Yorker's able to practice at a gun range, how the heck are they supposed to practice when NYC can't accommodate their citizens?
  7. Really the whole point of this ridiculous gun case is that if you have a premises license & you can't get into a city range, how the heck are you going to practice? The city giving a license to a resident that can't practice is way more dangerous than someone transporting it!
  8. I don't know who did the brief but NJ has it's own case. Rogers v Grewal. The state dragged it's feet but the court made them reply to the petitioners.
  9. I have been reading all the briefs in this case. Paul Clement for the Petitioners has written 2 briefs referring to this silly argument by NYC. Here it is, about 25 pages or so. It's worth reading. Basically just because the state changed the law does not mean NYC did. If the state recent laws disappeared, the city opinions would remain intact. The only way to give the petitioners true relief is to make the court decide on it. https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/18/18-280/114641/20190904133735900_18-280rb.pdf
  10. The amazing thing about this topic to me is the amount of briefs sent to SCOTUS. This case has brought forward at least 50 briefs! You have these screwball Democratic Senators threatening the Court if they don't make a decision that they like. In addition the NY case is not asking what Rogers is (shall issue). They are only asking to transport their guns unloaded and locked in a case. After all NYC only has 7 approved gun ranges. I just hope the justices have the brass to tell Whitehouse and Co. to shove it.
  11. People may think Roberts is a bit wishy-washy, but he is also not happy the way these Eastern Circuit courts are screwing up SCOTUS opinions. I think that's another reason SCOTUS will make a statement.
  12. Don't worry about packing the court. it takes a bill passed in the house, senate and Trump signing it, which would give him more justices. Ain't gonna happen, read this. https://www.bustle.com/p/can-congress-change-the-number-of-supreme-court-justices-it-hasnt-always-been-nine-12219225
  13. just go back to fdr and read about packing the court with his new deal programs.
  14. Here's the elephant in the room that NY is afraid of. May or Shall Carry. Even thought the case was cloaked in the NY State Rifle and pistol clubs, the real meat was the carry provisions. When the Respondent's arm was twisted, they allowed carry to a range, another property and an hunting area. But they are only allowing you, to take your arms to a SPECIFIC place! They are terrified of shall carry. This is where the NJ case comes in. It is not some shadow case. It specifically is about shall carry. I truly think the justices know that already and feel that the east should join the other 40 + states in shall carry.
  15. Congratulations. Lots of fishing and hunting there. That is one of the areas of PA that I always wanted to move to, but my wife has an anchor in NJ.
