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."
I just Read the article in the Political report in Shooting Illustrated about The July ruling By the US Court Of Appeals that found DC's "good reason" to be granted a CCW unconstitutional. Wouldn't the conflicting rulings between the DC Federal Court and the Jersey District Federal court force the SCOUS to a hearing to resolve the conflict? This is old news from back in July I'm just hearing about now. If its already been discussed please direct me to the thread.
Supreme Court Asked to Review California’s 10-Day Waiting Period for Gun Purchases http://www.breitbart.com/california/2017/09/03/supreme-court-review-10-day-waiting-period-gun-purchases/?utm_campaign=coschedule&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=NSSF
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 http://www.realclearpolicy.com/articles/2017/08/16/this_law_could_make_or_break_high-capacity_magazine_bans.html
'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.
I cast another vote for Sea Bands. On a river or on a lake i'm fine, but on the ocean when there boat is pitching, rolling, yawing and heaving, I puke until I dry heave, then I dry heave until I'm back on land. I don't get motion sickness on planes, helicopters, motor-vehicles, etc but boat smaller than a cruise ship, I get sick. I use sea bands and they worked.
I stopped by there today. Glenn, the owner, took me on a full tour of the entire place. This is NOT Hague's! I was shocked by the range! It was huge! I asked him if he widened it. He said no. The range looks very bright, modern and I could not believe I was even in the same building!
The shop is open now and the new range will be open on Monday, July 22nd! Having seen it. I will absolutely join this week. Members can bring a guest for $10. You CAN use your own ammo but no green tip ammo. Rifle okay up to .308.
I have the membership form if anyone wants a copy. No I don't work there but I am excited to have such a great place within 2 miles of my house!
We should definitely have a meetup there. I will talk to Glenn and see what we can do based on turnout interest.
