    The Supreme Court will encounter an array of Second Amendment issues in its upcoming term, after a pair of bloody weekend shootings left over 30 dead in a matter of hours.

    The justices are currently slated to hear just one gun rights case at present, but decisions on other petitions could come by autumn.

    Those disputes include state laws controlling the issuance of public carry licenses, and a lawsuit against a gun manufacturer.


The Supreme Court will confront a range of gun rights cases in the coming months, as the nation reels from brutal mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, that left over 30 people dead.

Matters now pending before the justices include a dispute over New York City’s gun transportation regulations, challenges to permitting laws in Massachusetts and New Jersey, and a lawsuit victims of the Sandy Hook massacre brought against gun giant Remington Arms.

Though the Second Amendment area is rich with opportunity for the Court’s newly-entrenched conservative majority, the justices may choose to follow a quieter course given recent events, particularly since the coming term is heavy on politically salient cases like gay rights and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

New York City’s gun transportation ban

The high court may hear its first Second Amendment case since 2010 when the justices return in October. At issue is a New York City ordinance governing the transportation of firearms. The rule authorizes licensed gun-owners to carry firearms to one of seven gun ranges, and prohibits them from moving their weapons beyond city limits.

A coalition of gun-owners who wish to transport their firearms to vacation homes and marksmen competitions outside the city challenged the ordinance in federal court. A trial judge and the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with New York, prompting an appeal to the Supreme Court.

After the justices decided to take the case in January, the city replaced the contested ordinance and asked the justices to dismiss the case as moot. The new rule allows license holders to transport guns “to and from various locations previously forbidden or not expressly authorized,” including vacation homes and shooting competitions. What’s more, a new state law provides similar protections, making the case “doubly moot” in the city’s view.

The plaintiffs counter that the new rules still treat gun transportation as a privilege to be micromanaged, “rather than an individual right.”

“The city continues to claim plenary authority over any transport outside the home, and its revised rule is plainly designed to provide the bare minimum of what the city believes will suffice to moot this case, and not an inch more,” lawyers for the plaintiffs wrote in court papers.

The high court is generally dubious of efforts to moot cases after review is granted. Arguments have not yet been scheduled.

Time for the SCOTUS to act decisively to strengthen the Second Amendment.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Here lies in honored glory an American soldier, known but to God

THE ESTABLISHMENT IS THE PROBLEM...NOT THE SOLUTION

Republicans Don't Need A Back Bench...They Need a BACKBONE!

Naw.  Smart-asses will just tell us our rights hang by the thread of another SCOTUS decision.  We have to pass a Statute that can be fought and ignored.

Because Predicate Clause.
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Amazing how a 5-4 decision our way on any topic we support is a “narrow victory” or leaves the issue “hanging by a thread”.

But when it’s a Liberal cause that passes by the same message it’s a “mandate” and “sends a clear signal”.

It’s another example of the corruption of the language I’ve been talking about.
