  1. Was he also charged for not having a FOID or only for the federal statutes? If not can he still be charged for not having a FOID? Either way this is good, shame the ruling was narrow and only applied in this one off case.
  2. I don't know which cases you a referring too. Seems like those discussions should be taken to their respective thread.
  3. Finally someone corrected the argument of self-defense as the only lawful use of a firearm. We'll see if it fell on deaf ears. Gets good around 35:00. I think the 2nd Amendment lawyer has an uphill battle, but I think he did well.
  4. I didn't watch the video but this can be very good for us in the long run. Either way this will go to SCOTUS ( whether or not they take it up will be unknown). But if it does get into SCOTUS they should rectify how this will work with US vs Miller which says the military test is the opposite, only weapons used for military purposes are protected by the 2nd. (That ruling was seriously flawed then and a ruling in the opposite today might force SCOTUS to rectify them) Which can then be used to challenge the NFA.
  5. Did the 1990's AWB get constitutionally challenged? Furthermore if it was challenged to SCOTUS and found constitutional then, are they claiming that SCOTUS doesn't have the authority to overrule previous SCOTUS rulings?
  6. Does SCOTUS have the ability to strike down laws not brought up for challenge? In my fantasy world, every gun control case they get they should strike down other related gun control laws. Make it painful/risky for anti's to attempt to institute new laws. In this case a full auto reg/bans.
  7. If SCOTUS rules broadly and lower courts and states respect that ruling (hahah) how much you want to bet those red flag, order of protection cases will be handled openly like other court cases instead of like divorce/family/juvie court cases. Imagine making that decision, do you want to fight that red flag and have something searchable against your name or just take it discretely. That could really torpedo someone's job, housing, and prospective relationships searches.
  8. https://www.reuters.com/legal/us-appeals-court-calls-bidens-ghost-gun-limits-unlawful-2023-11-10/ I think this is the same case.
  9. Let them declare the state a sensitive area, but require the government be held accountable for every crime committed within the sensitive area. You get robbed, the government is required to make you whole, you get assaulted the government pays for your medical bills. So on and so forth. If the government can find the perpetrator then the government has to go after them for reimbursement.
  10. COVID restrictions and shutdowns gave politicians a play book on how to suspend rights. It's a shame the majority of the nation just went along with those extraordinary emergency powers politicians granted themselves.
  11. I kind of like the subtle implication that the American government would implement a "Global totalitarian state"
  12. Their career and pension vs someone else's rights. No one should wonder which they will choose.
  13. When asked the machine gun question our side could have done a much better job: Something to the effect of; "It is quite possible that Bruen does find the NFA unconstitutional, but I'm not here to argue that law/case. Today I'm here to argue about a ban on commonly owned semi automatic arms." Then when Easterbrook goes on his tommy gun tangent, bring it back that there might be a challenge to the NFA per Bruen, but also state that its not known if tommy guns were commonly owned at that time. (who the heck knows that off hand unless it was thoroughly researched before hand) Then when Easterbrook and Wood flexibly define what a "ban" is you need to pull out that the NFA didn't ban automatic weapons as tightly as this AWB does to AR-15s. its easy to hindsight this but the 2nd amendment side really wasn't polished.
