Interesting Development at the Supreme Court

I had this topic scheduled for tomorrow, but sometimes when you try to stretch out material, it’s old news before you can blink an eye. So I’ll go tonight, with Dave Hardy, who is reporting that the Supreme Court had just made an interesting move in the case involving the magazine ban in Sunnyvale, California. The motion to stay enforcement until the case had been decided was denied by the District Court, and again by the 9th Circuit. It was appealed to the Supreme Court, and Kennedy just told the city it needed to respond by tomorrow. Interesting! We will eagerly see how this goes.

    Sunnyvale, right. What did I say? :)

    I guess we better drink the tea so we can read the leaves?

    Holy cow dung!

    Are we finally going to get a good SCOTUS ruling that magazine limits are utterly arbitrary and an infringement on our Second Amendment rights?

    Think of the effects…bye, bye to these capricious laws in CA, NY, MA, and other silly states.

      No… at best we’re getting a stay of enforcement while the case is being considered, though it’ll be interesting to see what Kennedy has to say about it.

      I doubt it, the case isn’t about limits on magazine capacity. What they are appealing is the outright ban on standard capacity mags with no grandfather clause. People that possessed the mags legally before the law passed, now have to get rid of/sell/donate them to the local PD or else they become criminals. They are arguing that the they should be able to keep the magazines that they had before the law passed because they had them legally and have broken no law with them.

    I’d love to see Kennedy say something on this, one way or the other. It would be a real eye opener for the future. But even if stayed, the order would be a one-liner, at best. Oh well.

    Also keep in mind that the whole court will weigh in on this. It’s not just Kennedy. He is the man who responds, but the whole court unofficially is involved. If they hold the law, it will be the result of more voices than his own.

  5. Hate to burst everyone’s bubble, but Kennedy ruled against putting a stay on the ban.
