A new session begins.

https://reason.com/2019/10/09/scotus-debates-whether-the-right-to-trial-by-jury-...

From the article:

"The other argument, Kavanaugh said, is that Louisiana's non-unanimous jury approach "is rooted in a—in racism, you know, rooted in a desire, apparently, to diminish the voices of black jurors in the late 1890s." Don't those two arguments, Kavanaugh asked the state's solicitor general, seem to cut against your case?"

I think this is an issue of critical importance for individual liberty and freedom from oppression.

A chance to learn a whole lot about SCOTUS if anyone is interested:

https://www.cato.org/events/repugnant-laws-judicial-review-acts-congress?utm_sou...

"Repugnant Laws provides a political history of how the Supreme Court has exercised the power of judicial review over federal legislation from the adoption of the Constitution to the present."

They'll be talking based on this book:

"The U.S. Supreme Court narrowly upheld a law in June that, in the dissenting words of Justice Neil Gorsuch, "hand[ed] off to the nation's chief prosecutor the power to write his own criminal code." Today, Justice Brett Kavanaugh spoke up in support of Gorsuch."

Our liberty depends on the separation of powers designed into the Constitution, and it's past time it was restored.

This is also pertinent:

SCOTUS is back in the limelight.

They will once again be called on to clarify the right of the People to keep and bear arms for NYC progressives.

NYC argues that it should be granted the power to infringe on the Peoples right to keep and bear arms by restricting the transportation of licensed handguns. 

Current NYC Law says a gun owner can ONLY transport firearms from his/her home to shooting ranges and second homes beyond city boundaries.

The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association argues that this restriction violates the Peoples right to keep and bear arms.

In 2018, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the NYC regulation did NOT violate the 2nd Amendment.

This of course was a bad ruling, so the US Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case.

Gun-grabbers protested loudly:

“I fear that gun violence in the United States has become normalized.”   said Marco Vargas.

“Why are guns easier to buy than a college education?” asked Christina Young.

“2nd Amendment was written before assault weapons were invented.”

"It's our position that by justifiably restricting the ability to carry firearms broadly on the streets of New York, it contributes to making the city safe," said James Johnson, counsel for the city of New York.

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Let's see, keeping arms is something most gun owners do, they mostly keep them at home. Bearing arms, as I understand it, is having them with you and ready for use...

Is there any reason to keep arms if you aren't allowed to bear them so you can have them ready for one of their primary uses, self defense and the defense of your family and community?

In 2008, (District of Columbia vs. Heller), the Supreme Court ruled that the right to bear arms is not unlimited and that guns and gun ownership would continue to be regulated.

This was unfortunate for law-abiding gun owners.  The ruling essentially nullified the "shall not be infringed" part of the 2nd Amendment.  SCOTUS ruled that some infringements ARE allowed.

However, some good came from the ruling which found that the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975 was unconstitutional, and struck down the portion of the Regulations Act that requires all firearms including rifles and shotguns be kept "unloaded and disassembled or bound by a trigger lock".

Well, they really don't want the bad guys to have quad .50s in our cities, or anywhere else. Shocked

Responsible people willing to pay for a Class III license and go through all the hoops can have guns like that now.

Neither did the court want to risk saying that even convicted multiple violent felons had a right to bear arms.

The important part of what they said, they said clearly. The right to bear arms is a fundamental individual right.

To even infringe on fundamental individual rights, the government must have a very, very, very, good reason, no bullshit allowed... Smiley

I'm pretty sure they said "could" Chief.
