The Court after Scalia: The next “conservative” Justice may not save the Second Amendment

The Court after Scalia: The next “conservative” Justice may not save the Second Amendment


A thoughtful analysis by someone who knows a thing or two about the second amendment. He doesn't paint a rosy picture.

It's a good article and paints an accurate long-term picture of civil and constitutional rights in general. Of note is the observation that even with five supposedly conservative justices they would not hear Drake.


Where I disagree is that thanks to legislatures gun rights are just about all we have left. Missouri is about to go constitutional carry. Our pathetic state notwithstanding, more Americans are freer to own and carry more guns than at any time in our history. And as my friends in Pennsy and from the South brag their fortresses are immune: "it's never coming here."


But prospects do not look good long term. We're preoccupied with guns the way philatelists are crazy about stamps, but we have the blinders on about most other things. Except for the 2nd Amendment the Bill of Rights is pretty much dead. And "it's never coming here" actually means "until the mexicans and muslims come here," which they are, oh boy they are. 


What goes up comes down. At some point the cities and counties will find ways around what seem to be unmovable state laws guaranteeing gun rights. Yeah, sorry to say even in Pennsylvania. Colorado is sort of the poster child for what will happen in PA and elsewhere. 


This is a fancy way of saying that white people are dying off in America, and that those who remain are increasingly pussified and brainwashed. Add that to demographics and a pliable judiciary and you have trouble. Or will have it.


The end will accelerate after Clinton's coronation. Guns, free speech, free association, disappearing before our eyes. I know she's behind in the polls but the bitch and her powerful backers will find a way.

An excellent read, though I wish it were less depressing. Thank you for posting as I might not have seen it otherwise.

      TOGETHER WE MAKE HISTORY! For the second time this year, and with the help & support of our members, sponsors, friends and those who contributed to our Lawsuit Fund, the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners is proud to announce that on behalf of all legal firearm owners in NJ, we've officially filed a "friend-of-the-Court" brief explaining to SCOTUS why NJ GUN LAWS ARE UNCONSTITUTIONAL! This brief strongly supports Mark Cheeseman's case highlighting the abuse of the NJ gun owner by subjecting him/her to the patently ILLEGAL "Justifiable Need" Rule that prevents carrying self defense weapons outside of your home or business using a "case-by-case basis" as was made ILLEGAL via the Dick Heller decision 11 years ago!
      We're proud of everyone that helped bring this amicus brief to fruition, especially our well-known 2nd Amendment Patriots, Attorneys Alan Beck and Stephen Stamboulieh. Their tireless efforts and keen insight combined with historical documentation discovered by our own member Jay Factor, resulted in this historical PLEA FOR RELIEF OF PERSECUTION!
      Please consider helping us in any way you possibly can: Join or RENEW today, make a donation or planned monthly gift, or buy an apparel item. Every dollar counts! Thanks EVERYONE for helping to make this happen! ON TO VICTORY!

      Watch for progress on the Rogers & ANJRPC CCW case vs NJ AG, et al. 
      This was listed in another thread, but I thought it will need it's own space to avoid hijacking Rosey's CNJFO thread. 
      What are your thoughts? I think we're going to Washington!

      Judge Kavanaugh and the Second Amendment
      "....Kennedy sided with his more conservative colleagues in finding a Second Amendment right to have a handgun in the home, and there is no reason to believe that Judge Brett Kavanaugh, if confirmed, is likely to disagree"
      "....We know from his recorded dissents from the denial of review that Thomas would vote to review and overturn some existing gun laws, and we know that Gorsuch – at least to some extent – agrees with him. But it takes four votes to grant review in a case, and we do not know whether Roberts and Alito also agree with Thomas but have opted not to say so publicly, or whether they instead are content to leave the court’s gun-rights jurisprudence as it is."
      ".... just this week, the 9th Circuit struck down Hawaii’s ban on carrying weapons openly outside of the home; even if the case goes to the full 9th Circuit, the losing party is almost certain to ask the Supreme Court to weigh in."

      Supreme Court Asked to Review California’s 10-Day Waiting Period for Gun Purchases
      In Silvester, et.al. v. California Attorney General Zavier the district initially found that a 10 day waiting period to purchase guns did absolutely nothing to deter a person that already owns a gun from committing an impulsive crime.
      Of course the Court of Appeals for the 9th curcuit overturned the district court ruling.
      SAF's Alan Gottlieb is now asking SCOTUS to hear the case:
      "Remember what Senior Judge Anthony Ishii of the U.S. District Court said in his original order, that the state has tacit knowledge that a protected Second Amendment right is burdened by the waiting period law. His comparison of the waiting period to prior restraint is a point that should grab the attention of every journalist who has ever defended the First Amendment while disdaining the Second. A civil right is a right, and all rights are equal and deserve equal protection."

      This Law Could Make or Break High-Capacity Magazine Bans
      'California’s Proposition 63 presents a rare opportunity for the Court to step in and make clear that if Americans have a right to any weapon “in common lawful use,” that includes the whole weapon — not just the parts that don’t frighten the California legislature.'
      The article lays out clearly why magazine bans are unconstitutional under both the second amendment and the fifth amendment "Takings Clause".
      This case could obviously directly help New Jersey.
