NYT Begs SCOTUS: Throw out Case
Instead of Ruling Against Gun Control

Original Article

The New York Times editorial board is asking the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to toss out a challenge against New York City gun control rather than rule against the controls at the center of the challenge. Breitbart News reported that SCOTUS was hearing a challenge to the NYC gun control on Monday, December 1, 2019. The gun control prohibited licensed firearm owners from transporting their firearms to all but seven city-approved gun ranges. On December 2, 2019, the NYT editorial board begged SCOTUS to discard the case, pointing to the fact that NYC repealed their gun control when it became evident that SCOTUS would take the case.

Comments:

“sanity and common sense” compel the dismissal of the case altogether, disregarding Heller & McDonald. Thank God DJT got his appointments.

I'm glad the NYT weighed in on this. It confirms that the SCOTUS was right to grant cert.

Oh so the SCOTUS is a political entity or so the NYT believes it is just as with the Obama years.

F- the New York Slimes, F- their editorial board. The case is a patently obvious violation of the 2nd amendment....say buh bye to the City's illegal control of guaranteed U.S. 2nd amendment rights. And I hope to live to see the day that the Slimes building goes up for sale and becomes a Trump hotel!!!

"On December 2, 2019, the NYT editorial board begged SCOTUS to discard the case, pointing to the fact that NYC repealed their gun control when it became evident that SCOTUS would take the case. " They had what was probably an un-Constitutional law. They thought the Supreme Court would take their toys away. So they repealed their law. What would prevent them from passing the same law again if the Supreme take a pass?

Hopefully, the Republicans will control the White House, House of Representatives and Senate starting in 2021. When that happens, perhaps we can see an affirmation of the second amendment by passing a law to make any state-issued carry permit valid throughout the entire USA, just like a state-issued driver license. That would guarantee the constitutional right to bear arms.

#7, it has always baffled me that the 'full faith and credit' portion of the U.S. constitution does not apply to gun permits. It applies to marriages, divorces, driver's licenses, auto registration, car insurance...but not to pistol permits. It should not be necessary to have a new law on the subject.

"An affirmation of the second amendment" law that #7 would like to see would seem to be a useless, oxymoronic exercise, but could be a good idea to publicize a constitutional victory. Language in such a bill should be included stating that all 'state permits' shall be an unnumbered card with the 2nd Amendment embossed in raised letters, issued without condition, free for asking.

#9, we have sixteen states which now recognize the 2nd Amendment as all that is needed for a law abiding adult to carry a gun concealed or openly. It is commonly called "Constitutional Carry".

#9/11, a law directing that any state not fully compliant with the 2nd (and that would include requiring permits to avoid harasement by their thugs,) would lose any and all federal funds until such time that they started correctly recognizing a citizen's right.

New Jersey is moving quickly to extend driver’s licenses to immigrants without legal status and others who lack paperwork. After years of pressure from immigrants and their advocates, lawmakers Monday heard testimony on a bill that could get final votes next week. Gov. Phil Murphy has said he supports the measure. The hearing before the Assembly Judiciary Committee included testimony from undocumented immigrants and advocates who said the bill is about creating safer roads and getting more drivers to get insurance. “What is important to note is that not only is this a policy that will have a great positive impact for our whole state, but it will also

Several Saudi nationals who had contact with the gunman who killed three at a Naval base in Florida are still unaccounted for, according to authorities. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, a 21-year-old Saudi national training at Navy Air Station in Pensacola, killed three and wounded seven during a shooting rampage that is now presumed to be a terrorist attack. Authorities announced that Alshamrani had visited New York prior to carrying out the attack and had held a dinner party where he showed footage of similar shootings. The FBI was already questioning six Saudi nationals who were connected to Alshamrani after two were caught filming the attack.

A federal prosecutor was busted Saturday during a DWI stop in Manhattan — and wasn’t even behind the wheel. Assistant US attorney Bianca Forde found herself needing a defense lawyer Saturday when she was arrested for trying to keep cops from administering a sobriety test to her boyfriend in Hell’s Kitchen, police and sources told The Post. Forde, 35, was riding shotgun with her boyfriend when cops pulled over their 2020 Chevy Camaro about 12:15 a.m. at the intersection of 11th Ave. and W. 40th St., police said Forde — who works in the Criminal Division of the US Attorney’s Office in Washington, DC

The state of New York is likely to free at least 125,000 accused criminals from prison next year and provide many with taxpayer-funded housing and job training services thanks to criminal justice reform laws.

The list of crimes for which suspects will be freed from prison before trial includes: Second-degree manslaughter Aggravated vehicular assault, Third-degree assault, Promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child....

Two boys in California were killed early Saturday while sitting inside a van in the parking lot of an elementary school when an unknown number of gunmen opened fire into the vehicle, authorities said. The boys, ages 11 and 14, were shot outside Searles Elementary School in Union City, located about 30 miles southeast of San Francisco, Union City police said in a news release. Multiple residents called 911 and reported hearing gunshots around 1:30 a.m., the East Bay Times reported. Police arrived at the school and found the boys with gunshot wounds.

When we learned on Thursday that former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh had been charged on a variety of corruption and tax evasion charges, I pondered what sort of defense her legal team planned to put up. After all, the self-dealing transactions uncovered by the Baltimore Sun were such obvious examples of grifting that it should have been a no-brainer for prosecutors to go after her. But Pugh had insisted from the beginning that nothing illegal had gone on and she had paid her taxes. Well, so much for that. Barely 24 hours later, the news broke that the disgraced former mayor had pleaded guilty to four of the original eleven

The commander-in-chief ought to fire Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, who serves on the National Security Council, for rank insubordination. That is the key take­away from Tuesday’s hearings in the Democratic impeachment push. Vindman, unlike other Democratic “star witnesses,” was at least on the July 25 phone call between President Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelensky, that set off the inquiry. But Vindman was unreliable and had questionable judgment, according to his own outgoing superior, Tim Morrison, the National Security Council’s senior director for European affairs.

Radical social justice activists will serve as the top prosecutors for three major Washington, D.C., suburbs — including the two wealthiest counties in the U.S. — after George Soros’s political action committee poured $2.1 million into ordinarily sleepy local races. In Virginia’s Fairfax and Arlington counties, the “reformer” attorneys ran on platforms far to the left of the Democratic incumbents, beating them in primary races before ultimately winning the general elections. In both cases, the incumbents expressed concern for public safety if the Soros-backed candidates took control. They also said that the activists were pushing a national platform about racism and over-incarceration that had no basis in reality

A Methodist church in Claremont unveiled a nativity scene Saturday night depicting Jesus, Mary and Joseph as refugees in cages, likening one of the most well-known images of the Christmas season to photos that have become synonymous with criticism of the Trump administration’s border separation policies. The display, which has stoked debate on the Facebook page of the church’s lead pastor, shows classic nativity figurines of Joseph and Mary in cages on either side of a cage containing the manger of Jesus. “We see this as, in some ways, the Holy Family standing in for the nameless families,” said the Rev. Karen Clark Ristine, the lead pastor at Claremont United Methodist Church.

Is the ghost of John McCain haunting Senator Lindsey Graham? The South Carolina Senator went on Maria Bartiromo’s Fox News show, Sunday Morning Futures, to throw a wet blanket on conservatives’ dreams of a Senate trial that would get to the bottom of the plot against President Trump. He wants to leave all those rocks in place, turning nothing over to see what crawls out. Instead, once the House managers present their case, he wants a quick vote, presumably ending in dismissal of the case. In particular, Graham ruled out calling Adam Schiff to testify.
Adam Schiff Has Jumped the Shark 31 replies

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

Pensacola, FL - The Saudi gunman who killed three people at the Pensacola naval base had apparently gone on Twitter shortly before the shooting to blast US support of Israel and accuse America of being anti-Muslim, a US official said Sunday as the FBI confirmed it is operating on the assumption the attack was an act of terrorism. Investigators are also trying to establish whether the killer, identified as 2nd Lt. Mohammed Alshamrani, 21, of the Royal Saudi Air Force, acted alone. Alshamrani, who was killed in the attack at a classroom building Friday, was undergoing flight training at Pensacola, where members of foreign militaries routinely receive instruction.

Biden insisted again that Hunter did nothing wrong, but this time appeared to fault his staff for not cluing him in that there could be concerns about his son's involvement with the foreign company that had been under investigation while Biden was in office and dealing with Ukraine policy.

"What happened to Drudge?"A lot of people have been asking that question lately. If you talk to conservatives these days, you'll hear that Matt Drudge's eponymous news aggregation site has gone over to the dark side—that Matt's joined the anti-Trump resistance. And now, Rasmussen Reports, an arguably reputable polling operation, is calling Drudge out on Twitter, even suggesting that the site has been sold. The whole kerfuffle appears to have begun at the end of November, when the Bongino Report, touted as a Trump-friendly alternative to Drudge, launched. Bongino taunted Drudge with a pair of tweets:

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.
