BOOM: DC Forced to Issue Concealed Carry Permits Immediately

Not going to happen. Citizens must obey the law and court orders. Governments do not and have an infinite amount of taxpayer money to keep fighting for a decision they agree with or challenging each and every plaintiff until the plaintiffs go broke. It will be a cold day in heck before DC capitulates and becomes "Shall Issue". You are certainly not going to see the U.S. Marshals deployed to DC to enforce such a court order and no DC politician is going to jail for ignoring the order either. Should DC even feel the slightest inclination to obey the court order, the next step will be to drag out the application process so long that it takes years to get a permit instead of weeks (similar to how Westchester County, NY and Nassau Count, NY handle it now). Then the court battles start all over again buying even more time for DC. The question is, will DC take a chance and try to run this past the Supreme Court, hoping for a favorable ruling? A negative SCOTUS ruling would make New York, New Jersey and Maryland very unhappy since DC's law is modeled on the worst of New York, New Jersey and Maryland making them vulnerable to being struck down. Had DC not pushed back against Mr. Heller, there would have been no landmark SCOTUS ruling on the Second Amendment and no subsequent incorporation under MacDonald.  (Friday May 29 | post #1)

City's Denial of Gun Dealer's Concealed Carry Bid Upheld

One needs to realize that New York State, and by extension New York City, is a part member of the United States of America. We only follow those parts of the U.S. Constitution we agree with and ignore the rest with zero consequences from the federal government. There have been lawsuits at the federal level upholding New York's position on many unconstitutional issues and they will continue. Those of us that live in this state have come to realize that on the freedom scale, we sit somewhere between New Hampshire with its "Live Free or Die" attitude and Cuba, leaning more and more towards Cuba every day.  (Friday May 22 | post #1)

Shoot Down the Stupid Second Amendment

Why stop with the Second Amendment? If we repeal the entire Bill of Rights we will be soooo much safer than we are now. People would not be able to spew hate speech and the media could be forced to report only news the government agrees with causing people not worry as much as they do now about scandals and special interests controlling the government. The police could search our bodies and property any time they wanted without having to trouble themselves with getting a warrant which would turn up much more contraband and criminals. Eliminating double jeopardy, cruel and unusual punishment, and the prohibition against being forced to testify against yourself would allow for swifter and more certain conviction of criminals as well the deterrent effect of knowing novel punishments could be dreamed up for various crimes. So yes, lets repeal the Second Amendment but do it in conjunction with a complete repeal of the first 10 amendments. (NOTE: this sarcasm for those too challenged to grasp the concept)  (Dec 28, 2014 | post #12)

N.J. Prosecutor, Judge Throwing The Book at Single Mother...

In this case, I have to agree. The law is BS but it is the law right now and if you are going to carry a firearm then you should know where you can and cannot carry. Heck, if she had done this here in New York, she would probably be facing even more serious charges than New Jersey is piling on her. It cannot be stressed enough, If you enjoy your Second Amendment freedoms, stay the hell out of NY, NJ, CT, MA, RI, MD, IL and CA. You will be happier that you did and your wallet will have more spendable cash due to the lower taxes.  (Aug 18, 2014 | post #2)

Our Opinion: Vermont needs common sense gun control

I'm glad Vermont is not on my short list of states to escape to from New York. It looks like New England is on the verge of going total "retard" with New Hampshire next I imagine.  (Jul 5, 2014 | post #2)

Gun Control Groups Fear Setback from Yee Indictment

They need not fear. In fact, the gun control groups can shorten their search by trolling gang hangouts and prisons in order to find suitable candidates for their cause. It would certainly eliminate the embarrassment of finding out after-the-fact their next chosen savior was a closeted crook. Better to start with a proven crook.  (Mar 29, 2014 | post #1)

"...those who would ban purely defensive measures like body armor, who would demand that we the people be perforated by every bullet that comes our way, occupy a level of loathsomeness all their own." You never allow the sheep to protect themselves. Their job is to go to work, pay taxes and die if necessary on principle.  (Mar 7, 2014 | post #1)

Gun control groups argue for assault weapons ban

"In one document filed Friday in federal court in Baltimore, lawyers argue that semiautomatic "assault weapons" fall outside Second Amendment protections because they're almost as rare as machineguns, and their pistol grips, barrel shrouds and conduciveness to high-capacity magazines make them equally dangerous." I think these lawyers need to go back and modify their response. The 1st and 2nd Circuit Courts have both held that so called "assault weapons" are in common use and are not as rare as machine guns. Granted both courts upheld bans in Connecticut and New York but the rulings are ripe for appeal as acknowledging these firearms are "in common use" while at the same time banning them flies in the face of previous Supreme Court rulings.  (Feb 15, 2014 | post #1)

U.S. Supreme Court Asked To Consider New Jersey Right To ...

My gut feeling is the Supreme Court is going to turn this down too like they did with Woollard v. Sheridan in Maryland and Kachalsky v. Cacase in New York. There just does not seem to be any interest on the part of the court to clarify exactly what the limits are with regards to the Heller and MacDonald rulings. Yes you have the right to own a firearm but whether or not you can have anything more modern than a flintlock (and in New York City even that is questionable) is still begging for a decision. Also the issue as to whether or not intermediate scrutiny or strict scrutiny applies to Second Amendment cases. So far, the courts seem to be lining up under intermediate scrutiny which basically says you can forget about the clause "shall not be infringed" and replace it with "may be infringed any time the state so desires for whatever reason they come up with".  (Jan 10, 2014 | post #1)

Leonard Pitts: Gun lobby turns on one of its own when he ...

Agreed. You can shout "Fire" in a crowded theater but there had better be a real fire or you should be prepared to face the consequences. Unlike what we are currently doing with prior restraint and firearms laws, we do not go around and cut out people tongues or lobotomize them to remove the part of the brain that gives them the ability to say the word "fire". You are free to exercise your First Amendment rights as you see fit but you will be held responsible for your free exercise. With firearms, it is a whole different matter these days.  (Jan 9, 2014 | post #3)

AT&T Targeting T-Mobile Customers With $450 Offer

How New York's 'Assault Weapon' Ban Passed Constitutional...

To be honest, none of this is really surprising. Ever since the Snowden affair, one must realize that the constitution is more of a list of suggestions than rules to guide us by. We can see already that the NSA has no regard for for the Fourth Amendment. This latest ruling on the SAFE act pretty much ignores the Second Amendment and the "Takings Clause" of the Fifth Amendment. There are some interesting First Amendment cases coming up to the Supreme Court and soon enough we may see a lot more of that amendment eliminated too.  (Jan 3, 2014 | post #4)
