  1. A conflict just came up so I won't be able to listen live. If you like, I can still write up and post a summary from the recording.
  2. I've registered for this event. If something comes up I may not be able to attend but otherwise I'll post a note on any 2A content. The Heritage Foundation posts recordings of these sessions on YouTube shortly after they occur.
  3. My favorite TV quote is "It's not my job to help you fix your bad bill." Never more true than now.
  4. For what you're describing, yes, Arlo is a decent place to start. Battery life appears to be pretty good, the cameras are relatively small and discreet, and they appear to be easy enough to use that you won't have to make a second career out of managing the system. There are plenty of good YouTube reviews to give you an idea what you're getting into. Good luck!
  5. A lot depends on your specific needs, existing computing/network environment, degree of technical skill, and time and $$ available to spend on the project. This is kind of like asking what’s the best gun, or car, etc. The possibilities run the gamut from complete turnkey installation to Big Bag O’ Cameras that you install and configure yourself.
  6. It hasn't taken long for this decision to make itself felt in other 2A cases, beyond those involving carry. The Ninth Circuit has (today) sent an AWB case back to district court, according to a piece at Volokh: https://reason.com/volokh/2022/06/28/ninth-circuit-panel-sends-california-assault-weapons-ban-challenge-back-to-district-court/ Volokh's article quotes the court's order: The district court's judgment is vacated, and this case is remanded to the district court for further proceedings consistent with the United States Supreme Court's decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol a**'n, Inc. v. Bruen, 597 U.S. ____ (2022). The parties shall bear their own attorney's fees, costs, and expenses. This order constitutes the mandate of this court. VACATED AND REMANDED.
  7. NY and CA should have just let Lisa appeal Posner’s ruling. With the composition of the Court at that time, even a ruling upholding the 7th Circuit decision would probably not have been as pro-2A as the one they’re now going to have to live with.
  8. Nancy Rotering, Mayor of Highland Park, instigator of that city's semiauto ban and promoter of anti-2A legislation in other Chicago suburbs, would like to be a candidate for a seat on the Illinois Supreme Court, from which position she would presumably work to further subvert the Constitution. The coming Illinois primary is our first chance to prevent her from achieving this goal. If you're voting in the Democratic party primary, please vote for one of the other candidates for this position. This one may be important enough to justify voting in the D primary even if your main interest is in Republican candidates.
  9. As an example of how things work out if you don’t have a Madigan-like figure, consider what happened to the Democrats in 1994 after Tom Foley helped get the original AWB passed. That set the stage for Newt Gingrich and the Contract with America, and basically drove a stake through any chance of health care reform. A little bit of pandering cost them their entire legislative program, from 1994 until 2009.
  10. Illinois is shall-issue now as a result of a decision by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals (and the tireless efforts of a huge number of 2A supporters). That decision could have been appealed to the US Supreme Court. That it was not appealed is sometimes attributed to pressure on Illinois from states such as New York which did not want to risk a SCOTUS ruling which would apply nationwide. However, had the case been appealed and had SCOTUS ruled against the plaintiffs, Illinois would likely not have the carry law it does now.
  11. Renewal notice dated 10/1, received 10/9 (I guess that’s the new, slow USPS service at work), renewal was fairly straightforward. Good job on FSB’s part.
  12. The complaint acknowledges past decisions at the state and at the 7th Circuit upholding semiauto bans but asserts that these were wrongly decided. The hard part will be getting the Supreme Court to grant cert. Well, that and getting the Court to find in favor of the good guys. That may be more likely now that it was pre-2017. It would help a lot to have a circuit split on this issue, which a victory at the 7th Circuit would provide.
