Supreme Court Set to Rule on Major Concealed Carry Case

This is MAJOR!

Published

Second Amendment

It is not terribly often that the Supreme Court of the United States gets involved with the Second Amendment, and with good reason:  That inalienable right is written into our Constitution with very little wiggle room.  The only reason for any drama surrounding the right to bear arms has come from the constant dirge of Democratically-decided nuisance laws meant to make owning a firearm a hassle.

This includes some concealed carry laws, which vary state-by-state, and created a tapestry of potential trouble for Americans.

At least one such law is now going to be the subject of a Supreme Court investigation.

The case, brought by the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, challenges a New York law that prohibits citizens from carrying a gun outside their home without a license that the state makes difficult to obtain.

“The petition for a writ of certiorari is granted limited to the following question: Whether the State’s denial of petitioners’ applications for concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment,” the court said in an order.

The state requires license applicants to show that “proper cause exists” for a person to have one. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in August that the law is constitutional.

The move comes as a number of states have taken extraordinary measures to protect the right to bear arms, including several locales that have interpreted the amendment itself to be a declaration that allows for concealed or open carry.

New York Court Tells Woman to Get Rid of Confederate Flag Garden Rock or Lose Her Daughter

A New York court has ruled that a woman must remove a rock painted with the C.S. flag or officials would come in and take her child away.

A New York court has ruled that a woman must immediately remove a garden rock painted with the Confederate flag or jack-booted state officials would come in and take her child away. The ruling was handed down Thursday by the appellate justices in Albany who warned that if the woman didn’t remove the rock in her yard painted with a Confederate flag, then she risked a “change of circumstances” in the custody of her multiracial daughter, the Times Union reported. In its unanimous, 5-0 ruling, the judges learned in a state “fact-finding” mission that the woman had “a rock with a Confederate flag painted on it at her home.” Justice Stanley Pritzker, who authored the appalling, fascist-like decision, decided that the woman who owned the rock simply must be a raving racist who is a danger to her own child. “Given that the child is of mixed race, it would seem apparent that the presence of the flag is not in the child’s best interests, as the mother must encourage and teach the child to embrace her mixed race identity, rather than thrust her into a world that only makes sense through the tortured lens of cognitive dissonance,” Pritzker wrote. Pritzker went on to say that since they think the woman is a raving racist, she has no First Amendment rights. “Further, and viewed pragmatically, the presence of the Confederate flag is a symbol inflaming the already strained relationship between the parties,” Pritzker added. “As such, while recognizing that the First Amendment protects the mother’s right to display the flag if it is not removed by June 1, 2021, its continued presence shall constitute a change in circumstances and Family Court shall factor this into any future best interests analysis.” Outrageously, the only evidence that this woman was racist was…

Biden’s Rambling Train Story was Filled with False Statements

When Joe Biden spoke at an Amtrak event, he delivered a rambling story about his travels was filled with lies. And the media ignored it.

Last week, when Joe Biden an appearance at the 50-year anniversary of Amtrak, he delivered a rambling story about his travels on the rails that was filled with lies. And the media ignored it. Biden, of course, is famous as “Amtrak Joe” for using the rail line to travel from his home in Delaware to get to Washington D.C. over the many, many, many decades he has been a useless Democrat politician. So, it was a natural to have him show up to help the wasteful, expensive rail service celebrate 50 years of profligate spending of tax dollars. During the event, Biden launched into a rambling, confused, tale about his escapades on Amtrak that turned out to be filled with lies, mistruths, and fake claims. Now, if Trump had delivered such a mess of a speech filled with lies it would have been “fact checked” for weeks and would have led every single news cast for months. But here it is, nearly a week since the speech was delivered and few news outlets have bothered with it. In any case, many of the claims that Biden made were simply not true. And these weren’t just muffed facts. They were lies about his personal experiences. https://youtu.be/d_GGqKnRvp8 Per the Daily Mail: President Joe Biden’s strange anecdote about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak has come under scrutiny after key inconsistencies emerged that make it impossible to have occurred as he told it. On Friday, delivering a speech in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, Biden launched into the tale of a certain conductor congratulating him on reaching the milestone as he traveled to visit his sick mother. Biden said the incident occurred in his ‘fourth or fifth year as vice president’, or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named…
