The victim was recovered from the pond, Moskov said. She added that a South Carolina Department of...
  • Supreme Court Strikes Down New York’s Proper Cause Requirement for Concealed Carry

    The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 on June 23 that New York’s proper cause requirement for concealed carry permit issuance is unconstitutional. New York State Rifle and Pistol Association [NYSRPA] v. Bruen centered on denials for permits under New York’s concealed carry permitting law. The NYSRPA filed suit claiming that one of its members was eligible for a permit but was denied because of New York’s requirement that concealed carry applicants prove why they need to carry a gun. The case ultimately dealt with the scope of the Second Amendment — whether the right to keep and bear arms applies only...

In a 64-34 vote, the Senate voted to begin debate on an ambitious rewrite of the nation’s firearm laws. Although only a simple majority was needed to take the measure up, 14 Republicans led by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell voted in favor.

    House Democrats are undercutting bipartisan legislation to bolster security for Supreme Court justices as heated protests erupt outside their homes. The Senate passed an emergency, bipartisan bill to beef up security for the justices and the Supreme Court building, sending it to the House on Monday night. Democrats in the House, however, don't appear to be eager to get the bill passed into law. Leadership members said on Wednesday they haven't even read the legislation, which is a single page, and they are now considering a new bill with an added provision that extends the security to the Court's 40-odd...

    Whoever leaked the alleged draft of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade has committed the “original sin for judicial ethics,” said Jonathan Turley, criminal defense attorney and Shapiro professor of public interest law at George Washington University. Politico published an alleged draft on Monday of the Court’s decision to overrule Roe v. Wade in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. The case revolves around Mississippi’s 15-week abortion ban and is the most significant challenge in decades to the Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which declared abortion to be protected by the U.S. Constitution. The...

    A boater who rescued a man in distress — twice — and then fatally shot him in South Carolina will not be charged because he was acting in self-defence, according to the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office. The boater was on a pontoon vessel with his wife on Lake Keowee last week when the couple spotted a man and a woman in distress in the water. The man and woman had fallen from a jet ski and did not have life jackets, a news release from the sheriff’s office explained. Morgan and the woman may have been arguing before they ended...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Yet more earthquakes have struck near South Carolina's capital city, the ninth and tenth in a series of rumblings that have caused geologists to wonder how long the convulsions might last, or if they could possibly portend future, more serious seismic activity. Early Wednesday, a 2.6-magnitude earthquake struck near Elgin, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Columbia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was measured at a depth of 0.5 kilometers, officials said. About 7 hours later, another earthquake hit the area, this one with a magnitude of 1.5, according to officials. That area, a...
  • Obama, National Democrats Fail To Deliver Win in Blue City’s Mayoral Race

    11/17/2021 1:26:39 PM PST · by devane617 · 20 replies
    Daniel Rickenmann, a Republican businessman, on Tuesday defeated Democratic attorney Tameika Isaac Devine by 4 points to become Columbia's next mayor. A slew of prominent national Democrats, including Obama, Clyburn, and Democratic National Committee chairman Jaime Harrison, backed Devine in the race. The result shows that Democrats' plummeting popularity extends even to areas the party has historically dominated. Obama, who in a Monday audio message urged Columbia voters to "make history again by showing up for Tameika Isaac Devine," won the city's county by 29 points in 2008 and 33 points in 2012. Clyburn, meanwhile, resides in Columbia and has...
