    SCOTUS has declined to hear an appeal of Drake vs Jerejian. Subject was New Jersey "may issue" concealed carry. The federal appeals court upheld the unfair NJ permit system: SCOTUS let that law stand.

    There is a federal appeals court split: Different rules for folks under the jurisdiction of other federal appeals courts:

    The Supremes were afraid to take the case. Gutless bastards. So New Jersey's Nazi gun laws stand.

    Lots of speculation as to why, but rest assured Peruta V San Diego has something to do with it, whether good or bad.

    At present Peruta is going round and round with Sheriff Gore and a possible en-banc review.

    As it looks right now, Peruta may also die without SC review. That leaves an unprecedented Circuit Split.

    Not looking good folk, not looking good.

    A Prime example that elections do have consequences.

    The SCOTUS delayed this one a few times. It requires four justices to grant cert. The fact that four did not sign on tells us something: The SCOTUS may be done with the right to bear arms.

    Peruta on appeal ruled in favor of the gun owner.

    So if Peruta stands without SCOTUS review as currently constituted, then that would be a good thing in California.

    It all depends on whether the full en banc CCA-9 court leaves it as it now stands or reverses it.

    Yes, but from what I have read, Peruta is still not final as there is a stay on the ruling.

    If the en-banc panel overturns, then off to the SC for review. If the en-banc panel upholds the ruling, then off to the SC for review.

    If Peruta is upheld, then there would be a clear circuit split and the SC might just have to review to clarify. If Peruta is overturned, there will be no circuit split and they will most likely deny review.

    This court doesn't want another gun case. However, with two opposing circuit court rulings they will eventually have no choice.

    That makes it even more important that we stop Hillary in 2016. The next president will probably have the opportunity to appoint 2 or even 3 justices.

    I'll do everything I can to make sure that president isn't Hillary. Even if I have to vote for Walter Mitty or Casper Milquetoast.

    Sadly you are becoming more of a minority than a majority. It is clear that more and more Gun Owners are either going to vote Democrat funded third party spoiler (L) or stay home in protest on election day, thus handing the WH, the Senate and the House to the Democrats.

    The most important thing we as 2A advocates can do is make sure the senate flips to R with a House R super majority. Then I would want a D president.

    You will never find a candidate "PURE" enough to satisfy the fanatics.

    When they start calling old time, proven conservative hard-liners like Paul Ryan and Scott Walker "liberal sell-outs" you know that nobody will ever get them off of their arse to go out and vote.

    Yeah, Scott Walker! Took a multi-million dollar deficit, turned it into a surplus, didn't lay off any Government employees, Reduced Unemployment, Reduced Taxes, created Privet sector Jobs, etc.etc.etc.etc. and he is fighting for his political career and will without a doubt be defeated in the next WI Gubernatorial election.

    ALL 'professional politicians' are sell outs.:mad:
    They need to follow George Washington's example. Until we get mandatory national term limits nothing will change. But the catch-22 here is the AH's will not enact a law like that because they are 'professional politicians'! :(
