DogWalksWithMe replied to the thread New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York.
" Just finished reading the oral arguments.

While (as the left media states) mootness was a big part of the arguments, I don't think the case will be mooted.

And while not covered in the testimony, I think there is a possibility the entire idea of a "premises license" might get thrown out as unconstitutional.

Also wonder if the court may make note of and invalidate the city requirement to keep a roster of customers, so that LE can verify claims a person was taking their firearm to a range... The is the RAS and PC for that? This comes from the NYC argument stating allowing residents to leave the city to shoot elsewhere makes investigation by LE more difficult. "

If I'm reading this right, and reading between the lines...

If Dundu Nuffin had a problem in some state which reports into NICS but now lives in VA, and applies for VA permit, it might come up clean?

But if Dindu did not move to VA, and applied for a VA non-resident permit, he would be refused?

So WI trusts the NR permit but not the resident permit?

DogWalksWithMe created the thread New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York.
" Opening arguments are today.

The Harvard Law Review suggests shifting the argument from the 2nd to the Commerce Clause of the 14th.

https://blog.harvardlawreview.org/th...can-intervene/

The Court granted certiorari in January, which was itself a bad sign for gun control proponents—the City’s restrictions were upheld in the lower courts and no other federal court has reached a conflicting conclusion, leaving the Court little reason to take the case other than to reverse the decision below. But the Court tipped its hand still further when it denied the City’s request to dismiss the case as moot in light of intervening city and state laws, both of which granted the challengers the exact relief they requested in their complaint.

...

But all is not lost. The liberal Justices in the minority have a last-ditch strategy that would sacrifice the specific gun restriction at issue in this case, yet save a number of far more critical gun control measures around the county.

...

Suppose the four liberal Justices expressed their willingness to join an opinion striking down New York City’s premises license restrictions on this Dormant Commerce Clause ground. For his part, Chief Justice Roberts might be especially interested in crafting a majority opinion on this rationale, since it would produce a unanimous ruling in favor of the challengers: at least five votes based on the Commerce Clause, with perhaps a concurring opinion based on the Second Amendment. Indeed, it is possible that Justices Alito and Kavanaugh might join the Dormant Commerce Clause majority as well, viewing that as a worthwhile compromise ruling in favor of gun owners that does not inject the Court into the heated, broader nationwide argument over the Second Amendment...

We’re not the first to say that, “Missouri is making a bid to be the most pro-gun state in the nation.”
It’s already joined the 17-state “Constitutional Carry Club.”

And now there is a serious possibility that Missouri may enact legislation to ban state officials from enforcing the unconstitutional aspects of federal law. The concept, called “nullification,” was sent to the governor’s desk six years ago — only to be vetoed by Democrat governor Jay Nixon.

But guess what? He’s gone.

And the new Republican governor might well sign the nullification bill if it was resubmitted to him.

The bill, Senate Bill 367 (along with companion bills HB 1039 and HB 786), would deem many federal gun control statutes to be “infringements” of Missourians’ constitutional rights:

...
There are possible constitutional challenges for the penalties against federal employees, but written properly the bulk of the legislation would survive a ruling against a few elements. "

DogWalksWithMe replied to the thread Quitting smoking.
" Good luck on the endeavor.

At four hours, a lot of it is out of your system. So every morning is a leg up.

At about two weeks, the initial cravings will peak. It is around this time many restart. And end up smoking more than before. This is because feeding the addiction takes time to metabolize.

When the execs testified nicotine is not addictive, they were telling the truth in the same way Clinton didn't have sex; but the breakdown products of metabolizing nicotine are addictive. So trying to get satisfaction after two weeks means chasing a result that won't happen for a while.

The next hurdle is at about six months. That is when the last of the most addictive molecules go away. This is the actual scream point for most people. So get through that too. Using dip while not smoking will mess with this process and delay it. So does the gum, but the purpose there is to get through the first two weeks (a month with nicotine supplementation, possible even three).

So if you can go cold turkey, you already have over four hours when you wake up in the morning so get to two weeks. Then get to six months. Then it gets easier. In a year, you will absolutely hate the smell.

In the first two weeks, detail your house, your car, wash all your clothes, and any and all possessions. If you don't, you will notice the faint smell of a stale ashtray at the end of that time. And it will keep you busy.

After two weeks, start adding up how many guns you can buy each year with your savings! Heck, you could probably afford a HiPoint at the two week marker. "

I agree. I have no problem with it when the intimidation is absolutely intended and directed at a specific person or group based on some characteristic like skin color or religion or any of the other identified targets having nothing to do with firearms. That is a hate crime.

My concern here is this edit to the law could be considered intimidating and intended to intimidate in the context of support for the 2nd.

If this edit passes, and a number of 2A supporters protest (assemble) by "parading, or marching with any firearm" then they must be doing it to intimidate those who are anti-2A. Honestly, there is no other reasonable interpretation as it is written. Guilty per this proposed edit of law.

This IMO makes it a violation of the 1st Amendment. "

" The part you are focusing is already part of the law.

Note underline takes out words and bold adds new language.

§ 18.2-433.2. Paramilitary activity prohibited; penalty.

A person shall be is guilty of unlawful paramilitary activity, punishable as a Class 5 felony if he:

1. Teaches or demonstrates to any other person the use, application, or making of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, knowing or having reason to know or intending that such training will be employed for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or


2. Assembles with one or more persons for the purpose of training with, practicing with, or being instructed in the use of any firearm, explosive, or incendiary device, or technique capable of causing injury or death to persons, intending to employ such training for use in, or in furtherance of, a civil disorder; or


3. Assembles with one or more persons with the intent of intimidating any person or group of persons by drilling, parading, or marching with any firearm, any explosive or incendiary device, or any components or combination thereof

So it does not make teaching firearms safety a crime, but does violate the 1st when it comes to the 2nd.

Just some guesses...

Balance of trade, without the cartel money moving dollars into Mexico, the economy will take a hit. Google England, China, Spices, and Opiates for historical perspective on this.

Perhaps the cartels have political influence in Mexico? (rhetorical question, of course they do. And those politicians running on genuine law-and-order platforms lost elections with no second chance. IIRC, dozens were assassinated in the last election)

Genuine fear of destabilization if the US does take military action in Mexico. Remember the southern part of the country is already in an effective state of civil war. Makes our southern border problem seem trivial by comparison. "

That was a quick thought of mine, but the resolution which authorizes military force on foreign soil against FTOs is limited to those responsible for or associated with the 9/11 attack.

But... We (the US) have sprayed Paraquat on fields in the past, and had other involvements under military authority in numerous countries south of the border over an extended period of time.

The FTO designation involves aspects in banking, money laundering, providing material support, and other financial transactions. For banks, this might involve some policy refinement but likely no actual change of systems or actions. The designated groups and activities are already covered under other laws.

The designation also allows refusal of entry to the US and deportation of organization members.

Final analysis though suggests buying Mexican weed or meth or being involved in the supply chain does bring new federal resources to bear, not just DEA and FBI but brings in the state department. And potentially FISA warrants.

So while Mexico may fear future military action (a fear guided by previous history), we maybe should consider what power this might give our "foreign" law enforcement agencies on our own soil. And if such power is reasonable considering the targets (pot to meth importation and distribution, and human smuggling). "

Agree those are valid subjects and on-topic in this thread (IMO, as I am not the OP).

A third subject I think worthy of discussion is the origin of the story. The story presents us with a fact, and the fact is true. He made over 50% more in 2018 than in 2017.

But the fact is cherry-picked, as he made over 50% less compared to three years earlier.

These two facts present us with how much of his income is based on performance. The first fact suggests he is taking more money for less performance as the NRA is hit with challenges from multiple fronts. When the second fact is considered, other interpretations become more likely.

A million a year is not a bad base salary, but if he does not make goals and draw a much larger income as a result, then he is not performing to expectations. If he was able to eliminate every gun control law to your satisfaction and prevent there ever being another law passed, would you care if he got a one-time payment of $50,000,00? "

DogWalksWithMe created the thread A Fair and Balanced Study on the Effectiveness of Gun Controls.
" Most gun control studies are written by groups promoting more gun control, so the authors find the result they seek.

I think the author of this study leans pro-2A, but he really did take a fair look at the laws and how effective they are:

PDF download available in link: https://www.researchgate.net/publica...Rates/download

While the results are generally negative for the violence control effectiveness of gun control, the significance of the few supportive results should not be overlooked. There do appear to be some gun controls which work, all of them relatively moderate, popular, and inexpensive. Thus, there is support for a gun control policy organized around gun owner licensing or purchase permits (or some other form of gun buyer screening), stricter local dealer licensing, bans on possession of guns by criminals and mentally ill people, stronger controls over illegal carrying, and possibly discretionary add-on penalties for committing felonies with a gun. On the other hand, popular favorites such as waiting periods and gun registration do not appear to affect violence rates.

Gun owners: Omnibus measure bans bump stocks, creates red flag laws to take away gun from those likely to do harm, enforces safe storage to keep firearms away from minors, drops the permissible alcohol level for possessing a weapon to 0.08. (Assembly Bill 291, various effective dates through Jan. 1; not yet signed.)
More here:

Mainly noted the change for intoxication from 0.10% to 0.08%. Driving and guns used to both be 0.10% and Nevada changed it many years ago to 0.08% for driving to keep Federal highway funds; this removes the delta between the levels for driving and carry.

Rather than posting a link, I need help finding a link to the bill as amended and passed; I can only find the original draft bill on line.

Governor Bill Lee has indicated he will sign the bill.

Key points as I understand them:

- New permit good for 5 years, enhanced is good for 8

- New permit $65, Enhanced is $100

- New permit 90 minute on line course and written test, Enhanced 8 hr course, written and practical shooting test

- Concealed vs open? (part of why I need to see the actual text)

- New permit unlikely to qualify for reciprocity with other states (my opinion) "
