This morning the Supreme Court denied cert seeking review of a Second Circuit ruling upholding a NY gun law that allows a person to carry a gun in public only if they can show a special need for self defense.
This is largely considered the second strictest gun law in the nation, second only to Ch...

| Political Talk|| More Second Amendment issues could be resolved next term - guns in public? - FalseProphet on 4/2/13 at 9:00 am|
There's a petition for cert pending at the Supreme Court asking a simple, yet compelling, question: does the Second Amendment extend to the carrying of weapons outside the home? The landmark D.C. V. Heller case a few terms ago, as some courts lower courts contend, did not address this issue. That ha...
| Political Talk|| Gun safety before gun purchase? - FalseProphet on 3/21/13 at 9:15 am|
HB 141 by state Rep. Austin Badon (D) would require anyone who wishes to purchase a firearm go through a one-time gun safety course before allowing that purchase.
Common sense restriction, or infringing on rights?

| Political Talk|| When will this board realize the truth? - FalseProphet on 11/7/12 at 12:00 am|
Voters aren't morons, and voters aren't the problem with Republicans getting elected.
The Republican party has no ability to appeal to the masses in the current state of the nation. This isn't about black or white, and it's not about the poor or rich.
It's about the evolving nature of our so...
| Political Talk|| 5th Circuit affirms ban on sale of guns to 18-20 year olds - FalseProphet on 10/26/12 at 11:53 am|
The 5th Circuit denied the NRA's challenge to a law banning the sale of firearms to 18-20 year olds. Applying intermediate scrutiny, the 5th Circuit found that the Congressional finding that 18-20 year olds were too emotionally unstable to own weapons was a reasonable fit with the law. Of course, w...

I'm going to be hunting some squirrel this weekend for the first time in a long time.
I got permission to use a buddy's land on the condition that I take his 11 year old son with me, which is no big deal.
I have never hunted with a child before (I'm 26), but that's not my concern. I'm under t...

This term won't be nearly as big as last year (unless Fisher v. University of Texas just really tickles your fancy), but I'd like to get a regular discussion going on some of the issues the SCOTUS will be facing this year.
The first case that will be heard is Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum, a ho...

In the wake of the new ruling on Katrina flooding, I was pondering why we allow the government to tell us when it can be sued.
The general principle is that the government (and I'll just limit it to the federal government) can't be sued unless it specifically waives it's sovereign immunity. It ...
