  1. I don't know if there is a topic on this already, but IMO it's an interesting ruling as the 9th affirmed having access to "any guns and ammunition" is a right as is being able to go to gun ranges with "any firearms already owned" Words matter in court rulings, especially when they are said by a higher court ruling https://www.reuters.com/legal/government/california-counties-pandemic-gun-store-closures-unconstitutional-court-rules-2022-01-20/
  2. I just got mine a few mintues ago, Jan 4 @ 3am The ISP is probably about as fast at getting the claimants info to the courts as they are at getting FOID cards to people...
  3. I would love to have be a fly on the wall when this complaint was delivered/read by the defendents and they saw Heller's name at the top...
  4. Most of us are old enough to remember when the US adamantly condemed such treatement, calling it authoritism and political persecution.
  5. You are not alone, they have certainly diluted what felonies were originally supposed to be. There are so many non-violet crimes that in no way should cause one to lose a protected right for life. The war on drugs has created a ton of them even for end users.
  6. We really need the Supreme Court to establish strict scrutiny on any 2nd infringments, the fact that this court ruled basically saying "We don't think you need a magazine over 10 rounds for self defense, thus we can outlaw them" in regards to a protected right is absurb, they once again lowered the right to a privilege. My hope is the Supreme Court puts an end to this nonsense sooner than later, the fact that a case like this is one step away from the Supreme Court after Heller ruled the 2nd an individual right is IMO nothing but the lower courts ignoring Heller because the Supreme Court neglected to establish a scrutiny level.
  7. And both criminally and civily liable for all harm they fail to protect the citizens from!
  8. It's a root issue money can't fix, and that is where they go wrong time and time again, as their solution is to always throw money at it. No doubt the gangs drive gun violence, but why are their gangs is what they need to be asking themselves. A lack of prosecution is the primary fuel to gangs thriving, the gangs know they can do what they do with little to no consequences, so they have no incentive to change their ways, this is especially true for the minors. If they started to hand out 10, 15 or 20+ year sentences with no early release and no parole, as the norm for those involved in gun violence or trafficking in illicit firearms I'm betting they would start to see some progress. As it stands right now 12-16 year old gangbanger steals a firearm in an robbery, tucks the stolen firearm it in his pants, shots it at someone he doesn't like, if the prosecutor even prosectutes he is out on bond within 24 hours and likely will never see a day of prison, that is no deterant.
  9. You nailed it, they have found thier golden egg, just proclaim something a 'Health Crisis' and poof instant unsupervised dictorial powers that apparently can be renewed and continued indefinitely...
  10. Well I would like to celebrate, but I doubt the next nomination will be any better.
  11. As someone who had to fight to get a firearm back after it was siezed the sucky truth is that dollar for dollar it's not worth it! I did it out of principle but truth be known, it cost me far more to get the firearm back than it was worth, and not by a small amount either. Yeah it's not fair, yeah it's wrong, yeah it's technically theft by police, but sadly the reality is they hold the upper hand and you will have to pay dearly to get force their hand. Even though it's probably not what you want to hear, probably best to just let go and more forward with a new firearm purchase if all the legal issues are behind you.
  12. That is what happens when you don't prosecture them, start handing out 10 year Federal prison sentences to all of them and I'm betting some will start to reconsider...
  13. And Biden's first move was to hand a terrorist organization control of a county along with billions upon billions of dollars worth of US arms?
  14. The "I don't care" is exactly what the anti-gunners love to hear everytime they pass an anti-gun law or EO, they love to divide and concure and love when people toss without pushing. Allow them ban the import of Russian ammo without pushback and you open up the door to them banning all foreign ammo, then banning all foreign firearms, then banning all foreign firearm components and so on. It's all great to say buy American, but it's highly unrealistic, there isn't enough ammo to go around even with imports. It's like saying don't buy made in China stuff and thinking you will be able to function and thrive in the tech heavy US world. And lets face it, if you own a Soviet Bloc AK, they love that cheap steel ammo coming out of Russia, in fact many run it better than brass! At the end of the day, banning the import of Russian ammo has zero to do with punishing Russia, that is just the smoke and mirrors game as ammo amounts to a small sliver of what Russia exports to the US, it's about attacking the 2nd, if they were serious about actually punishing Russia they would ban petroleum product imports! And as pro-2nd people we should care.
  15. This has nothing to do with punishing Russia and everything to do with punishing American gun owners through Executive Orders.
  16. It was shared by a local elected official, that is the extent of what I know about it.
  17. I did some quick searches here and didn't see anything on this, it appear from some Googling that the case Civ. No. 19-00578 JMS-RT is listed with the two spellings of CONNERS/CONNORS This is in regards to two Hawaii laws, one law that requires a 10 day permit be obtained to purcahse a handgun, and another law that mandates you bring the firearm it in for in person inspection/registration after you purchase. https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/federal-district-court-rules-two-hawaii-gun-control-laws-violate-the-second-amendment/ Ruling https://storage.courtlistener.com/recap/gov.uscourts.hid.146729/gov.uscourts.hid.146729.107.0.pdf
  18. I believe most judges are quite astute, it comes with the job, but the problem is many allow their personal opinions and agendas to take priority over that astuteness.
  19. Beat me to it by 3 mintues, LOL... It's going to be very interesting to see where it goes from here, especially since the 4th encompases DC itself.
  20. My guess is they simply dumped and sent all images found on the 'marketing departments' computers without review.
  21. Well maybe it's time the conservatives realize that talking points are good for national policy, something the liberals figured out a long time ago and have been using to successfully push state and national policy for decades! We only need to look at Justice Thomas' recent comment something that equality applies to 2nd rights as it does to marijuana use "The Federal Government's current approach is a half-in, half-out regime that simultaneously tolerates and forbids local use of marijuana."
  22. Apparently over 2/3 of the counties in the US now have some kind of 2nd Amendment sancutary law or policy in place. https://sanctuarycounties.com/
