The Ninth circuit is THE most over-turned judicial district in the country. Basically, look to see what they are doing and then do the opposite, you'll be fine.

That may be true - but conservative justices like John Roberts are why people in Vegas gamble on EVERYTHING - so, you never know...
After all, Obama Care is a tax - or its not a tax or it is a tax but not THAT kind of tax - whatever - its legal
...dont forget, Roberts was trying to talk the other conservatives out of voting down the Roe-v-Wade case until the leak forced his hand.

Had a family-gathering around that time and there was one of those living room 20-minute solve-the-world discussions on this. Everyone was thinking a lefty intern and I thought, "hmmm, maybe not, What if Thomas (or someone) was getting tired of 'waffles' for breakfast?"

More fruit of the "NYSRPA V. Bruen" tree

Quote:
WASHINGTON, DC (June 30, 2022) – Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today that the United States Supreme Court has granted, vacated, and remanded its Bianchi v. Frosh lawsuit, which challenges Maryland’s ban on so-called “assault weapons.” The case will now return to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals “for further consideration in light of New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen.”

[…]

“This is an important moment,” said FPC Policy Counsel Matthew Larosiere. “We have suffered at the hands of government actors who felt empowered by a lack of clear standards from the Supreme Court. All too often, horrible restrictions which threaten jail time for simply owning a common type of arm–one the people have an undeniable right to–were allowed to stand. This case presents one of the first opportunities to give force to our right to these common firearms, and we intend to see it through.”
Link to article at The Gun Feed on Firearm Policy Coalition.

This is more goodness as they tell an appellate that they recognize an issue & for the lower court to do their damned job after the lower court had dismissed it out of hand.

I just hope everyone realizes that should the left retain the house and retake the senate, you can expect them to push through the worst - and then just to make it stick, you can expect them to start trying to impeach their way into a liberal majority on the high court.

I'd say "stack" but they have an axe to grind and if they can impeach a few of those conservative radicals as a poke in the eye - so much better.

Knowing Howell, MI that is not a surprise. Used to stay with friends there while shooting an annual match at Brighton. Met Don Burgett there in a bookstore before he passed & he signed 2 of his books for me. But it is a genteel artsy-fartsy place full of people with noble intent.

If I was in charge of a tyrannical organization seeking to rob innocent citizens of their god-given rights if they refused to accept the premise of a government-approved narrative - well - I would see this resignation letter as a measure of effectiveness. I would revel in knowing that everything I was doing was progressing exactly as I intended. I would turn up the heat and continue to flush out folks like this until they are all out of work - then I would gleefully replace them with easily manipulated minions that would do my bidding as I continued to tell everyone how hard I was working to make things safe for the children...

...and all of the out-of-work dissidents would be sent off to my glorious reeducation camps.

Benitez is moving this quickly.
Wonder if he’s irritated with the stalling tactics.
