assaults were banned before and will be again, were deregulated and will be again. like a lot of programs and activities, they swing with politics.
just chill
I assume you are referring to "assault rifles"? If so, could you please define what an "assault rifle" is because if you knew anything about firearms, you would not propose such stupidity.

Our natural rights, which are not given but protected by the Constitution, do not "swing with the politics."

Discuss the subject, disagree with other posters, but the stupid comments and and ad homs are really getting annoying.

Stupid and inane comments are all she has.

To a liberal, there are no such things as natural rights, because only the government can issue rights, natural be damned.

Unfortunately, that is what she has become. I am all for rational and honest discussion of issues. But when ABSOLUTELY everything is from a position of hatred and trying to demean everyone that does not march in lock step with her opinions, it gets pretty old.

At one time I thought about just ignoring her and hoping she would change. However, I'm now going to call out the worst of her posts and force her to defend what she is spewing. We'll see what what happens.

New York City Asks Supreme Court to Drop Gun Case
Request comes after city loosens restrictions on transporting firearms

New York City has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to drop its planned review of a gun-rights case, saying legal disputes over transporting handguns no longer exist due to changes in city and state law. . . . "
SCOTUS had a case scheduling conference last week and the decision on NYC's motion is expected today at 9:30 AM.

I expect them to take the easy way out and take the case off the docket . . .

I would not be surprised especially as some on the far left in our Senate have filed an amicus brief with the court essentially threatening to restructure the court if they don't side with the left.

Quote:
When liberals worry about losing a major Supreme Court case, they usually make appeals to the Court’s “legitimacy.” This is intended to attract Chief Justice John Roberts by suggesting that a conservative outcome would damage the institution’s reputation. The ritual is disingenuous but usually subtle.

Five Democratic Senators have had it with subtle. In a remarkable and threatening amicus brief, Sheldon Whitehouse, Mazie Hirono, Richard Blumenthal, Richard Durbin and Kirsten Gillibrand all but tell the Justices that they’ll retaliate politically if the Court doesn’t do what they say in a Second Amendment case.

“The Supreme Court is not well,” they tell the Justices in what is really an enemy-of-the-Court brief. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’” By “restructured,” they mean packed with new Justices by a Democratic President and Senate after they kill the filibuster.

The case involves a challenge to a New York City law that banned licensed gun owners from bringing handguns outside the city even if a gun is unloaded and locked in a container separate from its ammunition. The Court accepted the case in January. Fearing a Supreme Court defeat, New York softened the restrictions and in July asked the Court to dismiss the case as moot. The Justices are scheduled to consider that question Oct. 1. The plaintiffs say the regulations are still unconstitutional.

My best guess is that this too will backfire. SCOTUS does easily threaten.
