  1. IF I am recalling... there is an "emergency" provision designed just for purposes such as this. I could be wrong of course.
  2. New York is playing a dangerous game with their tax payers’ money. Part of the zeal with which this opinion was written was whipped up by how the lower courts essentially gutted Heller by instituting their ridiculous two-step scrutiny. Thomas was leaving no room for the lower courts and state justice systems to play games this time. The 2nd amendment very clearly describes the right that is protected, and Bruen very clearly describes how that right is to be treated within the justice system. Citizens now have a very clear path to show harm when one of these anti-2A maliciously violates their civil rights. It will take an administration change before any of it is enforced, but the framework has been laid for it to get VERY expensive for these states that insist on playing stupid games.
  3. We have a legal system of negative rights, not affirmative rights. A speeding ticket can’t be enforced where there is no posted speed limit. It’s almost as if the anti-2Aers think this is Canada or something. They’ll get their desired delay, but the law won’t hold up to scrutiny. In the meantime, anyone negatively affected by it is having their civil rights demonstrably denied in violation of US law. That can get expensive and make a lot of victims very wealthy.
  4. The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment: 1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations." 1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world." 1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial." 1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor." (other docs say “Major”) 1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding." The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it. https://duckduckgo.com/?q=what+did+regulated+mean+in+1788&ia=web
  5. "Biden is a needed breath of fresh cool air". Folks should repeat that to themselves and let that thought simmer for a moment. 47 years of graft, theft and corruption and 81 million people were dim enough to believe he was a breath of cool air, lol. People from coast to coast who got dressed, drove, stood in line and risked being assaulted after leaving consistently packed events is a good measure of what people want in their leadership. 12 preselected people being bussed onto a football field to sit inside painted circles is also reflective of something. People can move their thumb over a remote anytime they like, and even I will stop channel surfing for a moment to listen to the next thing Biden or Kamala "says". That isn't the same thing.
  6. Eric Sewell, Nancy Pelosi, Hunter and Joe and James Biden, James Comey, Hillary Clinton...do I need to continue? There is a long time of liberal Democrats that need processing before we should be thinking about TDS.
  7. If Illinois currently had gun rights similar to free states, the anti gun zealots would be pointing to Chicago and screaming about all of the shootings and homicides. But since gun rights are very restrictive, the leadership in Chicago prefers a "nothing to see here so move along and if there is something wrong it is someone else's fault " mentality.
  8. A fully automatic ak 47 is about 3 seconds on a mag dump. Maybe the rifle and a couple full mags are free, with a coupon to the nearest ammo retailer while they are still open. I'll take bets on what comes first- the United States government passing out free guns or forcibly collecting them.
  9. The system was by most honest accounts, broken prior to Obama's sales position for two terms and then later the riots and the pandemic. The fact that there is really no end of the tunnel in sight or that someone can even say it will be as functional as 15 years ago should be enough said. But, while it is taxpayer dollars, they aren't funding welfare, section 8, illegals or pregnant moms, so it is allowed to continue as is. Otherwise, the rioting, burning, looting and pillaging would only have subsided due to the lack of new targets of opportunity.
  10. You should expect the corporate media to hit them with all they have to discredit them, and plenty of Fed boys to infiltrate them.
  11. I believe the mandates will lessen, whether for political or practical purpose. Over this spring and summer, expect the baskets to open up and the carrots to come back out, ie free education, etc in order to lead the masses back into the barn. Castro's son made a huge mistake in labeling these truckers, and their supporters as "fringe extremist" who do not deserve to be heard. I would hope this administration would learn from that but hope isn't a guarantee.
  12. The city leaders stated that this bill will help prevent suicides, domestic violence and negligent use of a firearm; I didn't realize an insurance policy was capable of so much. They later stated that the fees would go towards damages and bills from shootings. How many people are shot by legal, licensed gun owners vs felons? Huh? Derp. Either San Jose is that stupid or they just believe their constituents are that stupid.
