Skip to comments.10 Second Amendment Cases Scheduled for Conference Again, No Orders Yet
Posted on 05/22/2020 6:53:30 AM PDT by marktwain
The Supreme Court has re-listed the ten Second Amendment cases it has previously distributed for conference. From scotusblog.com:
This morning the Supreme Court issued orders from the justices private conference last week. The justices did not add any new cases to their argument calendar for next term. Perhaps most significantly, they did not act at all on the 10 gun rights cases that they had considered for a second time at last weeks conference.
The gun rights cases have all been on hold, some for over a year, presumably until the court issued its decision in the challenge to New York Citys ban on the transport of handguns outside the city. The justices dismissed that case as moot at the end of April, and a few hours later the court had distributed the 10 petitions for consideration at the justices May 1 conference. The justices normally only grant review after they have considered a petition at two consecutive conferences, so it was no surprise that they did not act on the petitions when they issued orders on May 4. Theres no way to know whether the justices are still trying to choose among the petitions, have not yet decided what to do or have some other reason for waiting to act on the petitions.
Ten Second Amendment cases have been re-listed for the Supreme Court conference to be held Friday, 15 May, 2020. As noted in the SCOTUSBLOG post above, a writ of certiorari is usually not granted until a case has been heard at conference at least twice. The ten Second Amendment cases have now been to conference at least three times each. Perhaps, because of the number of cases, the Supreme Court Justices are taking more time on this issue.

Some of them will have been to conference four times; but for all, this is the first time they have been to two consecutive conferences.
Scotusblog says the court does not issue orders granting a writ of certiorari until a case has been to two consecutive conferences.
There is a chance one or more of these cases will be scheduled for oral arguments in orders issued on Tuesday. Monday is a holiday.
Just how many microseconds does it take to realize that's blatantly unconstitutional?
I think the majority on this court still holds a pro-second amendment; right of the people, not militia, attitude.
Perhaps they’re trying to weed out the best ones to hear to apply “stare decisis” on? Make it harder to overturn down the road and hard for the 4 Leftists to blatantly dismiss. They will, but their reasoning will suck for all to see.
SCOTUS must make it clear that *every* US citizen,regardless of where he/she lives,enjoys numerous *specific* rights under the UNITED STATES Constitution and that that Constitution trumps *every* state Constitution,County Charter and every municipal ordinance/order.
Up until that time, they claimed, in court, up and down, it was obviously Constitutional and necessary!
I've heard several state legislators...all Rats...say that when they're crafting state legislation they pay no attention to its fidelity to rights granted under the US Constitution.They say they let the courts deal with such issues.
As proof of that attitude there's a 2nd Amendment case from Massachusetts called "Caetano v Massachusetts" in which SCOTUS ruled 9-0 that the state law in question violated Caetano's 2nd Amendment rights.The author of the decision narrative (can't recall who) stated that the Massachusetts Supreme Court's ruling to uphold the law was "frivolous".I think that's the way SCOTUS says "ESAD"!
Roberts is doing everything he can to NOT extend those rights to EVERY US citizen.

Congress to the rescue (yeah, right) of our 2nd Amendment (2A) protections! /sarc
Patriots are reminded that the states have given Congress the express 14th Amendment (14A) power to make laws to discourage state actors from official actions that abridge constitutionally enumerated protections, 2A protections in this example.
From the 14th Amendment:
"Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
In fact, the congressional record shows that Rep. John Bingham, the main author of Section 1 of 14A, had included 2A when he read Bill of Rights protections as main examples of rights that 14A applies to the states.
John Bingham, Congressional Globe. (See 2nd Amendment (Article II) about in middle of 2nd column.)

We are still stuck with a worthless, corrupt Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration that will predictably munch popcorn while watching CNN show law enforcement officials of "Orange Man Bad" states forcing citizens to surrender their firearms.
The remedy for constitutionally failed federal and state governments
Patriots need to send "Orange Man Bad" federal and state government Democrats and RINOs home in November!
Supporting PDJT with a new patriot Congress and state government leaders that will promise to fully support his already excellent work for MAGA and stopping SARS-CoV-2 will not only effectively give fast-working Trump a "third term" in office imo, but will also do this.
New lawmakers also need to promise to exercise their 14A powers to make laws that discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections, especially 2A protections.
