    2nd Amendment Tag

    On August 13, 2019, we wrote about an extraordinary Amicus Brief filed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) on behalf of himself and several other Democrat Senators. The Brief was extraordinary because it threatened the Justices with a potential restructuring of the Court if the Justices didn't dismiss as "moot" the first big 2nd Amendment case the Court has taken in a decade. The Brief was panned by right, left, and center as a thinly-veiled and inappropriate threat.

    It had been almost a decade since the U.S. Supreme Court took a major 2nd Amendment case, something Justice Clarence Thomas lamented in a dissent from the Court's refusal to hear an appeal from a 9th Circuit decision upholding California's 10-day waiting period even for those who already owned guns legally and had gone through the permitting and background check.
