I’m note sure if they go back to the circuit courts of appeals or the district courts. The district court for Duncan v bonta was roger benetiz in San Diego, a bush appointee. He ruled the mag limit didn’t meet intermediate or strict scrutiny and this was unconstitutional. If it returns to him, he already heard from the parties in their briefs and already wrote a comprehensive opinion. He can reissue that decision fairly quickly with minimal changes.
If it goes to the 9th 3 judge panel rather than the district court, is it a new panel or the previous who is already familiar with all the facts. That 3 judge panel was a 2-1 decision upholding the district court ruling
Still in the 9th are ripped v bonta, Miller v bonta, and others. Everything from handgun rosters to microstamping to AWB and mags. Pretty much every area has a pending case in the 9th. And the 9th is a 16-13 GOP judge to dem judge court, it’s not the 21-8 court pre 2017
My question for legal experts: With states doing emergency sessions to circumvent the SCOTUS decision, what level of probability is there that people can seek an injunction from the SCOTUS against those new laws? Many of the new laws seem to still be contrary to the ruling.
I am nearly certain they they will keep their original rulings and say “there is no original text or history showing use or protection of high capacity magazines or assault weapons”. These lower courts are that insolent.
Despite Thomas clearly stating that the 2A applies to modern guns just the same as historic guns from the 18th century.
Wilmington, DE public housing's ban on guns resulted in federal rulings that guns can't be banned from .gov subsidized housing.Good more stupid shit to get knocked down...I hope ..
The proposed legislation would bar concealed weapons from schools and universities, government and judicial buildings, medical facilities, public transportation, any place where alcohol is sold and consumed, public parks and playgrounds, and special events that require a permit.
Huge issue with public places, government buildings belong to the people
The 9th overturned the mag ban once in Duncan v Bonta and only reversed it when appealed en banc. I think there's a decent chance they'll overturn it.
Someone needs to challenge CA's microstamping BS next.
I read it as being remanded to the next lower level of court, but then again, they could just remand it back to the district. Which might prolong the foot dragging a few years long as a district decision would only affect the district.
There is still a lot of litigation to come as states like MA, NJ, IL, NY, CT, MD, and even VT litigate different issues. VT has a 15 round limit and some of the others have all laws covering every one of the bad "gun control" laws.
Maybe.There is also some potential for states to delay things by taking strategic losses without appealing. They take the L on magazine size, don't appeal so it doesn't affect any other states, and come up with some other nonsense to hurt us that we now have to challenge again. DC did this with their good cause requirement and it took years extra to get to this point where SCOTUS ruled on it.
If the states keep adding more BS that won't stand but takes 2 years to get a ruling on during which time they have created more nonsense we could be at this for a generation just trying to get the basics dealt with. We have to hope they are stupid and try to defend their laws to a point where we can get good rulings killing them.
I do not hold out much hope on that one. They have been much more strategic in the last decade or so.We have to hope they are stupid and try to defend their laws to a point where we can get good rulings killing them.
Id say she got a good 2 years out of her publicity stunt, for the general public. Lot of people here didn't do a thing because they knew it was unprosecutable. So it works for a while until people realize there is no teeth behind it.Or the AG here not prosecuting anyone for breaking her AWB ruling. So it remains because no one had standing to bring a case and most people obey it because they do not want to be the test case.
How long do you think it takes for SCOTUS to take away their toys?
The decision that came out today about the EPA overstepping it's authority, basically agencies can't change policies as if they were making laws as things must be codified, basically kicking chevron in the gonads, does that kick Healy in the butt by interpreting the law on her own?
They are remanding the cases back for the lower courts to fix their own erroneous decisions.
I would assume that back channel communications have already conveyed to the lower courts receiving GVRs what the majority expects the outcome of each case to be.The court isn’t 4-4 with Kennedy being an arbitrator rather than a judge. This is a solid 6-3 court on 2A issues so there is no question in justices minds about taking a case without knowing where Kennedy may decide. They all trust each other and know where each stands. Because of that it’s not going to be 12 years until SCOTUS takes another 2A case if the lower courts ignore Heller, McDonald and NYSRPA.
I’m sure SCOTUS would be happy if lower courts follow their guidance and rule on text and history, saves them the effort of taking up the cases. If they don’t, they will be quick to smack them down.
From this it looks like the case will go back to the circuit court panel who heard the case originally. The 9th circuit magazine case was a bush and trump judge in the 2-1 majority ruling upholding the district court which found the mag limits unconstitutional. They can basically re publish their previous majority decision with a mention to NYSRPA as the whipped cream lol
The AWB case from the 4th circuit is Bianchi v Frosh. The 3 judge panel there had to uphold the AWB because the 4th circuit court of appeals decided a previous AWB case (Kolbe vs Hogan) en banc. They upheld it without a thought. The lawsuit was designed by FPC to get to the Supreme Court because the previous case was already decided by the 4th, it would be rubber stamped and appealed to SCOTUS quickly.
The 3 judge panel who will get the AWB in the 4 are Thacker (Obama) Richardson (trump and traxler (Clinton). Traxler wrote the dissent in Kolbe vs hogan, he would have struck the AWB down as unconstitutional.
So it looks like that will be a favorable panel.
Like I was saying: Shinn v. RamirezThat's not totally out of character for appeals courts.
They're not normally interested in hearing of evidence
about the original case which is not preserved in the trial court's records.
Until it's smacked down, think of it as Nature's Way of bringing clarity and lightI understood that the proposed NY law would also ban carry in any private business unless that business specifically states that carry is permitted.
Imagine all the important people with sekrit Delaware gun permitsAll those "special people" with hens teeth permits are going to find THEIR rights aren't as safe as they thought they were.
vs MA where a security guard shoots a guy in the process of stabbing a doctor to death at a hospital and he gets dragged thru the legal system for 2 years.A homeowner who shot an intruder early Wednesday morning in Moreno Valley is unlikely to face criminal charges after the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department determined he was justified in shooting the alleged suspect.
He is as sympathetic a defendant as it gets for rights of CCW and self defense. The case laughs at NYC’s attempt to make the transit system GFZ.
... during which time Biden can appoint more of HIS judges.If the states keep adding more BS that won't stand but takes 2 years to get a ruling on during which time...
In case anyone else was wondering:Makes you wonder if the door to door confiscations will be sped up after a Black Swan event....
The black swan theory or theory of black swan events is a metaphor that describes an event that comes as a surprise, has a major effect, and is often inappropriately rationalized after the fact with the benefit of hindsight
Who is saying this will happen? Where are they saying it?
Because at some point the Supremes are going to understand that allowing any sort of license scheme (that criminals and crazies don't obey) gives the states that had a may issue scheme to continue to abuse people and attempt to skirt equal protection. To stop the courts from having their time wasted and further protect the right to carry without infringement outside the home Scotus will do away with all licensing for carrying.
We already have 26 states with the permitless carry law and it has demonstrated that it doesn't turn into the wild west.
Yeah. What T-dog said 10 min after I went to bed, you night owls.
The Supremes have made 3 or 4 MAJOR 2A decisions in the last 20 years. Tell me how many have been listened to. None. Ergo, every one of them goes a bit farther. At some point, they're gonna go into the "fine, you lose it all - you can't be trusted to protect your citizens' rights."
Four of the top five are owned by Meta. Four of the next five are controlled by the CCP. So according to this list 80% of the top ten social media sites on the planet are controlled by Mark Zuckerberg or Xi Jinping. Really loving my lack of accounts on those platforms.Short of a few people and the MSM, no one cares. Twitter is the 15th most used social media platform. 15th.
Knowing the most popular social media sites will allow you to maximize your brand reach on social media, engage with the right people, and achieve your social media goals.buffer.com
Just a shade over Reddit for crying out loud.
Great! Another SC challenge and they get pissed enough to create National Con-Carry.
They continue to double down on the stupid. Keep it up, fuzzballs.
