More 2nd Amendment related articles on FR's Bang List.
The court can do no such thing by themselves.
..may expand?! How about RESTORE?
Cant see the article as it is behind a paywall. and I am not going to allow ads.
So. Can we get a summary, please?
And that ANY local jurisdiction would EVER rule that the 2nd Amendment DOESN’T allow transportation of personal firearms out of one’s home in the first place is a travesty of judicial activism at its worse!
This is a similar one from a different source.
I feel ‘perfectly’ safe in/on my own turf and surrounding areas..
It is when I have to travel to the D controlled Schiff Hole cities that I get ‘nervous’ and is where I should be able to protect myself because if EVERYONE follows the law except the bad guys, it makes all of us more susceptible and turn us into targets...
Exactly what I was thinking.
So the New Jersey’s prosecution of out of state residents transporting their firearms, those convictions should be vacated?
Oh yes, I totally agree with that.
bump for later- although i don ‘t think we need an expansion, the original 2n’d A if upheld is all we really need- would be better if the SC announced all gun laws unconstitutional- or at least most of them
How can they expand beyond “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”?...
Unless they are going to start issuing them to anyone that wants them.
In this case, SCOTUS likely recognizes that NYC repealed the law in question just to derail the case against it after years of advancing litigation - with reasonably presumable intention of re-instating said law once looming threat of SCOTUS review ends. Such bad-faith action needs be cut off. As precedent, recall SCOTUS ordering DC to end its practical gun ban, which was done - and then a new practical ban promptly enacted in clear bad-faith violation of the ruling. The law in question was so egregious that SCOTUS needs to make absolutely clear “no you can’t do that, and y’all better not try it again - so let’s make this absolutely clear.”
Exactly, the ruling must be crystal clear, the Heller decision should have already made this NY case moot but it didn’t.
Many cases would never have had a Supreme Court decision if mootness was applied rigorously and consistently. Well-settled case law now recognizes an exception to the mootness doctrine for cases that would have been suitable for federal court decision but for the passage of time or developments in the controversy or as to the parties. This exception to mootness is especially applicable in cases of constitutional rights. I expect the Court to take up the case and adopt at least an intermediate level of scrutiny for gun control laws.
NJ shouldn’t be ALLOWED to make it illegal to own a gun in their state.
No state should.
