Let me be clear.....lol

 

When I said disney swat... I should have put. Disney 'swat'... meaning the would be disney security group... with their k9 unot etc.

 

But the part about a sheriff's presence was not understated.....

 

I also noticed more cameras this time than I have in the past....

 

The times we live in.

Hey All,

We have made no reports for awhile because, well, there has been no news.

However, yesterday the Circuit Court sent us a notification that a 3-Judge Panel will hear our appeal this coming Tuesday, April 11th, 2017.

We were told we would not be allowed to be present, not allowed to provide oral arguments.  No surprise there.

 

We will be filing a more detailed report on SAPPA pages of www.tpath.org in a day or two.

 

By the way, the 3 judge panel is made up of one Obama appointed judge, one Clinton and one Reagan.  Guess how the majority vote will go.

 

Regards,

Dwight and Nick

Any results from this?

 

April  7, 2017- The Circuit Court notified Nick that they would hear the appeal April 11th. No oral arguments would be allowed and no attendance will be permitted..  The 3 judge panel is made up of one Clinton appointee and one Obama and one from Reagan.

Yes.

We are in the process of filing our response to the Appeal Court.

We will file a full report in a few days as to all that has transpired.

As we knew they would the Circuit Court ignored law and ruled against us.

The reponse we are filing is being prepared with our move to the Supreme Court in mind.

Hey All,

Here is a passage form our log.  This updates our activity as of this date regarding the SAPPA law suit.

Begin:

May 17, 2017-  It has been several weeks since the last log entry.  While much was going on behind the scenes not much was happening that needed to be posted.  Now we have new documents to post and information to provide.

First, partly relatable to this law suit, Mr. Purpura's application for a NJ carry permit was denied and upon taking that denial before a State Judge, a Republican and an appointee by Christie, his appeal was denied.  If there is any doubt about the state of NJ politicians being liberal, just as liberal as the Democrats, this should lay rest to any.

Regarding the ongoing lawsuit, we prepared a powerfully built appeal that simply cannot be lost if the Circuit Court rules on the law, precedent and the Constitution but we know for sure that it will be decided based on ideology and all else will be ignored.

The appeal which can be seen HERE, was filed on May 4, 2017 a full two weeks ahead of the very brief period the Circuit Court allowed.  We were able to do this because, as with most of the other court activity, Mr. Purpura was prepared for the appeals court ruling long before they issued it.  Anticipating leftist activity is not particularly difficult for Nick.

There is zero chance that the Circuit Court will accept our en banc request to address the full court.  They have a long and firm history of not letting facts interfere with their decisions if they run contrary to their political bent.

However, the request will be another arrow in our bulging quiver when it comes time to appeal to the Supreme Court.  The documentation we have compiled over this past almost two years relating to the delays, misapplication of Federal Laws of the Court, and the various dirty tricks which have been used to stop this legal action will be a good foundation for the ultimate appeal.

With the appointment of the 9th Justice and one who has a record of supporting the Constitution, the long delays the two lower courts have employed may actually benefit our case. 

We await now the response from the Circuit Court after which the preparations for the Supreme Court will begin in earnest.  During that period it will e imperative to get some publicity for this case.  That is when we will need the help of so many American citizens.

end:

I have attached the Appeal referenced above.  It can also be seen on the TPATH website.

according to their website this case has reached the SCOTUS and we'll be updated any day now. Wow, I must have missed some updates, dont remember it progressing this far, looking forward to what they have to say in the update.


How is that possible? SCOTUS docket I believe is set and I don't remember seeing them on it.

Okay Guys,

Sorry for the delay. Between the Circuit Court and the preps for the Supreme Court we have been very busy.

Reading some of the posts here  it appears that some think that we announced that the case has been docketed.  That is not the case. What has happened is we took a special seldom used Expediting Process and filed it with our Writ.

Both the Expediting Docs and the Writ have been sent to the SCOTUS.  Some of you may know what the Expediting Process is.  For those who do not we will be explaining it and all we have done and what needs to be done to get this case docketed for the October session.

We will be posting both documents on TPATH by Tuesday evening.  Now that all our work has come to a final phase I am taking Monday off and playing in a police golf outing in Westlake tomorrow. 

Tuesday we will get everything posted as well as posting a description of what we have had to deal with.

One last thing, what we will need now form everyone is to get this lawsuit into the public eye.  We will discuss how to do that in Tuesday's report.

Thanks all and hope this clears up a few things. We have indeed come a long way. We battled the best attorneys the feds and the state had to offer and we are still standing. Many of them are not, including the District Court Judge.

Warm regards,

Dwight and Nick

      A law suit was filed that challenges New York's stun gun ban based on second amendment issues.
       
      The filing is here:

      Don Kates, the father of the modern Second Amendment revival, has died

      Don wrote “Handgun Prohibition and the Original Meaning of the Second Amendment,” 82 Mich. L. Rev. 204 (1983), the first modern article in a major law review arguing for the individual-rights view of the Second Amendment.

      Gun confiscation is one step closer in Connecticut. The mainstream media spins it as “one more chance” for non-compliant gun owners who failed to register their scary guns before the January 1 deadline.
       
      In reality, these letters - 106 to rifle owners, and 108 more to residents with standard capacity magazines – are the first step in the Connecticut State Police beginning to round up guns arbitrarily made illegal last year in that state. These guns include America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15 and magazines over 10 rounds, which include the standard capacity magazines made for that America’s favorite rifle.
       
      Failure to register is now a felony now in Connecticut.
       
      How long will it be before there is bloodshed over this law? We’re not sure, but we’re confident it is coming unless the law is rescinded or struck down by the courts.
       
      Mike Vanderboegh of the edgy Sipsey Street Irregulars released an open letter a couple of weeks ago, warning of what’s coming to Connecticut. The Connecticut State Police aren’t listening. Yet.
       
      We suspect attitudes may change after the first few rounds of bloodshed.
       
      As it stands right now, the best estimates are that 4% of newly-regulated guns and magazines in The Nutmeg State have been registered, leaving a hundred thousand or more newly classified potential felons looking over their shoulder.
       
      Editor’s note: We’re not going to link to the article because they are hiding most of the content behind a paywall and we won’t drive thousands of readers to their website.
       
      One more chance for gun owners
       
      Posted: Monday, February 24, 2014 3:35 pm | Updated: 3:36 pm, Mon Feb 24, 2014.
       
      Manchester, CT (Journal Inquirer) – When state officials decided to accept some gun registrations and magazine declarations that arrived after a Jan. 4 deadline, they also had to deal with those applications that didn’t make the cut.
       
      The state now holds signed and notarized letters saying those late applicants own rifles and magazines illegally.
       
      But rather than turn that information over to prosecutors, state officials are giving the gun owners a chance to get rid of the weapons and magazines.

      -------------------------------
      100 letters don't seem like much, but it might be their strategy to tackle a little at a time when it comes to the overall 100k non-compliant gun owners. I'm giving strong consideration to the idea of making future purchases outside state lines.

      I think this is the most chilling part:
      "This is our country. We live in it, and we have a right to the kind of country we want. We would not allow the French or the United Nations to rule us, and neither should we allow people who died over two centuries ago and knew nothing of our country as it exists today."
      Honestly it's a bit interesting he mentioned the UN who I'm pretty sure the president is alright with handing over rights to.
