    Regarding NYC's lunacy and the gun control idiots suddenly don't want it heard.
    Based on questions today from the SCOTUS liberal judges they REALLY don't want it heard. "Law was repealed. Nothing to see here. Move along." They know it will lead to sweeping elimination of several unconstitutional gun laws (well they all are, but...)
    Oh PLEASE let this case be tried. PLEASE.

    I am cautiously hopeful on this one. Wonder if Ginsberg will be there.

    She's there. She's said there's nothing to review and they had received "all the relief they sought" by the repeal.

    That is the way I thought it would go. I don't think they want to open another can of worms.

    What case? Hasn't NY already given NY gun owners everything they asked for? I sincerely doubt the Justices will allow it to proceed.

    Hasn't NYC already changed its regulations to allow licensed gun owners to transport their weapons to locations outside New York's five boroughs? IIRC the state of NY has also enacted a law barring cities from imposing such restrictions in the future. The case was resolved, nothing for SCOTUS to hear or rule on.

    NY is going to request this be dismissed so that they don't face scrutiny on other unconstitutional laws and SCOTUS will most likely acquiesce.

    They are hearing opening arguments today/this morning. The answers to your questions are 'yes' but they know if this get ruled on, it will have sweeping ramifications for the rest of the unconstitutional laws in NYC and NY and other places. They don't want that. They took too big a bite at the apple and are scrambling to crawfish back. A few of the justices are pushing to have it heard.

    Agreed, this is why NY is pushing back.....I'm not saying it shouldn't be heard (it totally should), I am saying it won't.

    A decision is expected by late June.

    Ginsburg will be long gone.

    Heard a synopsis and Ginsburg and Sotomayor REALLY don't want it heard. Which of course means it should be.
