… What Part of Palmer v DC do those Dummies Not Understand ?!?! [#second amendment rights]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 31st,2016

.. Palmer v DC [and several other cases] made it clear . The residents of D.C. have full 2nd Amendment rights , just like any other citizen of any other state in our Union ..

.. that includes the rights to keep and bear arms [emphasis mine]…

.. the dummies on the D.C. City Council and the D.C. Government seem not to get it . They were ordered to pass a bill to correct legal defects in order to comply with Palmer . They have not done so . Doing what they have done [or , in their case , they have not done] is going to get them into serious trouble …

.. one item sure to come is renewed legal action . Palmer is still before the D.C. District Court [and Judge Frederick Schillin] . Atty Alan Gura and the plaintiffs can haul the D.C. Govt back before the judge …

.. what Schillin can do is simple : throw out the new D.C. Gun , bill , and drop the gun restrictions , entirey . Boy , the D.c. government would go hyper over that . So would the ObamaCraps . The Supremes , though , would likely take the case away from the D.C. Circuit , given recent history on Halbig v Burwell …

… Well , They tried [#DC gun bill]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 4th,2015

.well , the D.C. city council passed a gun bill …

.. it does not mean that it is any good , though …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. they did pass a bill , and DC mayor Vincent Gray has indicated that he will sign it … it is the subject of a court case , though , and that is where the problems start …

… more to come …

–[update]– they  have created a process that has basically left it virtually impossible for anyone to get a gun to carry on the streets of the District . Where the Court decision [Palmer v DC] set it , that was not what the District Court had in mind ….

.. there is likely to be  more court action on this case . I will guarantee  it . Also , the new Congress will be keeping a  e eye on  this case , without a doubt . If the D.C. Circuit tries to ” screw around ” with the original case , once it hits the appeals level , then it is my expectation that Congress will step in and legislate a solution on its own , no matter how much the D.C. City Government screams bloody murder …

… About Time [#a partial solution on guns]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,November 6th,2015

.. at least it is a partial solution .

.. unfortunately , it will take political and legal will to take the case to SCOTUS to bring this silly fight to a conclusion ..

.. the District of Columbia is on notice . They have to allow private citizens to own guns . Not only that , but they have to allow private citizens to ” bear , ” or possess guns on the streets . The courts have made it clear …

.. [h/t — CNSNews.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the 2nd Amendment is an individual right . it is a part and was included as a part of the Bill of Rights for a very good reason . Jurisdictions nationwide cannot prohibit people from ” owning ” and ” bearing ” guns …

… Excellent News [#Peruta v Cty of San Diego]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 2nd,2015

.. I thought that the State of California would try to pull this stunt ..

.. what I was thoroughly surprised at was that the Full 9th Circuit dismissed their antics ….

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the legal opinion // news …

.. the state never thought or realized that San Diego County would not challenge the case , or the original ruling . When the County stood down , the state screwed around and did nothing …

.. now , the State of California tried to intervene . It realized that the Peruta ruling applied to the entire state , as well as the state of Hawaii [the 2 states in the 9th Circuit] . They would then become a ” shall issue ” state when they did not intend to do so …

.. the full 9th Circuit shut the State of California down . As much as they may have agreed with the State [philosophically] , procedurally , the Circuit knew that the State royally screwed up and did not challenge the decision when they should have . Now , they are stuck with the decision …

… Palmer v D.C. is on hold [#temporarily]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,August 5th,2014

.. not a big shock ..

.. the courts are giving the District of Criminals and the City Council a chance to pass a new gun bill …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. however , the original judge still has the case . It is Senior Federal District Court Judge Frederick Scullin , of the Northern District of New York …

.. oh , a little more info on the case — this one has lounged around for more than 5 years . The local judges on the DC bench [more than a few] screwed around with it , doing various stalling tactics …

.. eventually , an appeal was pushed to the Supreme Court Justice overseeing the D.C. Circuit . Big Oops . That justice just happens to be Chief Justice Roberts . He cracked the whip , and reassigned the case . Especially sending it on to a senior judge who is a noted and speedy hard case . Nice ! …

.. that judge will be watching the D.C. political games . Especially with elections in November . He will likely crack down on the District , and do the legal handiwork himself , if the D.C. City Council plays around with the case …

… Interesting News in Gun Rights [#Palmer v DC]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,July 29th,2014

.. Palmer v DC is , of course , the great victory for gun rights in the nation ‘ s capitol …

.. Palmer was brought to finally bring down the idiotic gun restrictions in our Nation ‘ s Capitol . The Heller case brought them down , in theory , but the DC government played dirty with their local laws . They passed local laws so onerous and disgusting that it was impossible for anyone to legally carry a gun outside the home …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news post ..

.. now , Palmer changes all of that . It is also interesting that none of the local federal district court judges heard the case . The case went to a senior judge , and one from upstate New York . The D.C. government had to groan at that prospect , and they were right . They lost …

.. What happens now ? An appeal to the D.C. Circuit (that is the normal appeals circuit that would hear the case ) is in the offing . The anti – gun rights groups , though are scared to death , either way . The appeals decision in Moore v Madigan in the 7th Circuit is hanging over their collective heads …

.. So , win or lose , an appeal would set up a conflict between circuits , one that the US Supreme Court would love to get its hands on ….

.. now , all sorts of DC and federal agencies are going to have to come up with firearms policies …
