Couldn't believe it when I read it, Even the couple real trampled rights where not heard. Draconian need a reason to carry laws etc need to be heard.

IMO very bad letting the libs make their own rules regarding who can buy what and having to have a reason to get a carry permit.

It means Roberts has no balls. We need Trump to replace Ginsberg. Then be ready for CW II.

They had the 4 votes needed, it may mean they didn’t have the 5th vote that would have mattered.

They have been turning these down for weeks. There are something like 20 cases, they keep denying them. Once a case is heard, it will strengthen 2A, which is why they keep getting punted.

These rejections may be more insidious than what it appears. I couldn't find the actual rule to verify this (been out of the law game for 17 years, and didn't practice before the Supreme Court anyway), but my memory from law school was that only four votes were needed to accept a cert petition. Which would imply that at least one of the four more conservative justices did not vote in favor. Hopefully, someone on the forum can enlighten us further.

Dayum. :badmood:

Imagine if over 150 years after the ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment, just somehow- by some justification or rationalization- black people were still being forced to work or be bullwhipped.

It’s been said before that if the 4 conservatives don’t feel they have the fifth vote lined up they won’t vote to accept it. We need RBG to kickoff and be replaced by a true conservative to test this theory.
