  1. This is a district court decision. The next step would be for the state to appeal it to the 9th circuit. The "9th circuit" won't do anything unless the case is appealed... The "9th circuit" doesn't appeal anything to SCOTUS. One of the parties in the case appeals it to SCOTUS, after losing in circuit court. It really isn't that difficult to understand the process, I thought it was taught in high school..
  2. https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/18-323.html Err, no. "Response requested" from the defendant (the US) (10/22/18) Multiple motions to extend the time before the US's response is due (11/14-12/12) US response filed 1/22 Petitioners reply 1/31 Cert denied 2/25 Someone should tell them never to do that then. https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/18-7151.html Really, the best possible outcome for the CCW case would be a SCOTUS bench ruling that said "please read the ruling in Wrenn if you are confused about the meaning of Heller, McDonald, & the 2A in general" Which will never happen. If anyone is still following the mag ban case, I'm pretty sure the case itself will be dismissed sometime soon after 3/18. Can't wait to see what ANJRPC files in opposition to the motion to dismiss.
  3. Why is anyone thinking this makes it a win? https://www.supremecourt.gov/search.aspx?filename=/docket/docketfiles/html/public/18-323.html is just one example of the court asking for a reply from the defendant..
  4. No, it really isn't. It will probably surprise you that it only seems to apply to those in custody. https://www.sun-sentinel.com/local/broward/parkland/florida-school-shooting/fl-ne-douglas-survivor-lawsuit-federal-judge-20181217-story.html You will have to give an example, since an incident would have to occur with the police standing right there when it started. Or some are just tired of special protected classes in NJ wrt firearms law.
  5. Pretty sure it is about a higher hit probability, not necessarily putting 3/4/5 holes at once in the target.
  6. It is well established that there is no duty to act. DeShaney v. Winnebago County (1989) Castle Rock v. Gonzales (2005) Warren v. District of Columbia (1981) (DC Court of Appeals) Balistreri v. Pacifica Police Department (1990) (9th circuit court of appeals)
  7. Is saying "I would like a LEO to explain" the same as "blaming the cop"? The state made the argument that LEOs have "training and experience" that your average gun owner does not to use "high capacity" mags. I would like someone to explain just what this training is. And much like all the other losing "sure thing" cases over the last several years, they don't have to rehear it en banc, and SCOTUS is not required to take a case. My opinion is that SCOTUS is not doing its job in passing on the gun cases, but nobody can force them to do anything.
  8. Well, you might think that, but the 3rd circuit disagrees: "Finally, because retired law enforcement officers have training and experience that makes them different from ordinary citizens, the law’s exemption that permits them to possess magazines that can hold more than ten rounds does not violate the Fourteenth Amendment’s Equal Protection Clause." https://www2.ca3.uscourts.gov/opinarch/183170p.pdf Someday a LEO will explain this "training and experience" that a civilian who used (gasp) 15 round mags for years does not have. Of course, you could use that same reasoning to only allow motor vehicles to be driven by emergency services. Then again, I'm not sure the judge who wrote that opinion knows which end the bullet comes out of..
  9. Every time I've read "extensive training", I just ask myself "in what?" - because I've been part of 2 different private clubs that let the local police or county sheriff use their range - and it was nothing but: divots in the floor, holes in everything directly downrange, bullet gouges in the walls, etc.. I'll admit that I never saw any damage in the 180 behind the line, but looking at what they did in front of the line I can only attribute that to luck.
  10. I haven't figured out yet how these 5 additional rounds make an otherwise acceptable firearm something that only the gov't should have..
  11. If you really want to read something.. interesting.. Read this declaration from the mag ban lawsuit. http://www.thekaplanblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/18cv10507_53.pdf Or if you want to see a list of all the filings in the case: http://www.thekaplanblog.com/cases-of-interest/nj-magazine-ban-lawsuit/
  12. I know that. It also works both ways. See Peruta, Kolbe, etc Is there a majority of 2A friendly types in the 3rd circuit if it goes to an en banc ruling?
  13. You do understand that SCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States) is not required to hear every case sent to them, right? Actually, they only hear ~80 (and issue bench rulings in another ~100) cases each term. Out of the 7K+ sent to them. Those are not very good odds, yet some seem to believe that there is some requirement that they must hear the case...
  14. Perhaps I'm just burned out on "we will win this one, its a slam dunk" And there is nothing else, its either win in court, or win at the ballot box. We saw how the ballot box went, with Gov. Goldman Sachs II promising to raise taxes and easily winning.
