    MILLER: Dick Heller challenges D.C. "Heller told me in a phone interview Tuesday that, "The city collected every gun restriction they could find from every other state and gave them to us as thumbtacks on the road for our march to Second Amendment freedom." He is the lead plaintiff of five...
  2. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    This is REALLY frustrating. I'm assuming the worst that these lawsuits will merely sit in the courts for years and years. It seems that the judges who are overseeing the challenges do not want to make waves and they will do everything to keep the status quo. Where can we go to find out the...

    This one has been on the books for at least 12 years or so.... I thought the Supreme court case in DC covered this issue but this NY law was never taken off the books. Has this law been enforced? This is just another example of a clearly unconstitutional law being enacted that no one seems to...

    This forum is not working to keep us updated on the status of the challenges to the SAFE Act. There are dozens of threads on this topic but each has hundreds of comments and no hard information on the status of the challenges. I don't understand what happened on Monday 4/30/2013. I thought...

    I think this will take 8 to 10 years before it reaches the Supremes and there is no guarantee we will win. Does the NY Safe Act need to be struck down by the Supreme Court or can the NY law be nullified if a similar law from another state is struck down? I don't understand why the Supreme's...

    I fully expect the legal challenges to the SAFE Act to take at least 5 years to resolve. I'm 57 and I cannot wait years for this unjust and unconstitutional law to be overturned in the courts. In addition, I believe that most of the provisions, including the big clip ban, to survive ALL legal...

    I'm lost on this issue dispite my efforts to try to stay current on the latest developments. I think I read here that a NY State judge asked the NY legislature and Andy Coumo to provide a narrative that justifies the actions taken in the SAFE Act by March 11, 2013. And, apparently, there have...

    Hey Guys, My Constitutional Law (bear with the terms of art) is a bit rusty, but a challenge to the federal courts is expensive (a US Supreme Court brief is easily a $1 million legal ride), but the test should be Strict Scrutiny since an "individual right" has been burdened, and to overturn...

    If the SAF or NRA or NYSRPA challenges this draconian, ujust, unconstitutional law. Who will match me? Lets keep a tally and see how much we can raise! Mods - Can we tack this?

    As I read through the entire new law, one thing is crystal clear: This was not written in the month since Sandy Hook; this has been in the works for a loooooong time. They've learned some of the lessons from the first ban and have crafted a more stringent, sweeping law. They feel they are...
