This might help

Via the apex of the Triangle of Death I just found out two-thirds of the nation’s attorneys general have filed an amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to grant certiorari in the case of NRA v. Chicago and hold that the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.

No doubt it was due to being encouraged by wheelbarrows full of cash. I know that was my motivation for posting the news.

In any case, having the states say, “Yes, the 2nd Amendment should be a restriction on the states as well as the Federal government” bodes well.

I wonder how the Brady Campaign, VPC, et al. are going to spin this. They probably will claim it had something to do with the wheelbarrows full of cash. If so, then it seems to me that the NRA should give those guys a few wheelbarrows and see if they can be encouraged to change their tune. After all it appears the Joyce Foundation is cutting back on funding and with all the new members the NRA should have more money available.

  1. What floors me is that CA AG Brown has filed in favor of incorporation of the 2nd!

    You could have pushed me over with a feather. Maybe his time as Mayor of Oakland has him thinking better of the liberal party line?

    It seems that he is also trying to make concealed carry a bit easier as well.

    Just waiting to wake from the dream back into the nightmare.

  2. Joe, I don’t know if we can trust something from as biased a site as that of the NRA. What do you think?

    Besides, who says the “attorneys general” speak for the states. You said, “In any case, having the states say,…” Does that work?

  3. Mikeb302000,

    What I think is that you are a troll.

    The AGs did sign the brief. Here is another report on it.

    The AG is the chief legal officer for the state. He or she speaks for the state on legal matters. In this context I’m not sure I understand your point about questioning whether the AG speaks for the state.
