    Objections to Christianity

    I won't go there then. The author being John? The divine contradicting himself? You'll have to explain what you mean. Or what is the context you are referring to? Time sequence of the video in question or something so I can follow you here. And are you referring to Alan Watts as a "false Christ," and "garbage?"
  3. By Evie Fordham - The House Oversight Committee will question Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in March about a citizenship question he supported adding back to the 2020 census, the committee announced Tuesday. The announcement from the committee, which is headed by Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, comes less than a week after a federal judge ordered the removal of the question Jan. 15. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman said that Ross’s department violated federal law by including a citizenship question. Ross is scheduled to testify voluntarily on March 14, nearly a year after members of the committee began requesting documents from him, according to a committee press release. Some critics of returning to asking a citizenship question on the census questionnaire say that it could “lead to a significant undercount of immigrants fearful of revealing their citizenship status,” according to The Wall Street Journal. However, the fight to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census questionnaire will likely be fast-tracked to the U.S. Supreme Court. The issue is urgent because the Census Bureau must finish up the questionnaire by June. Furman also accused Ross of hiding his motives for adding a citizenship question in the Jan. 15 decision. Congressional Democrats are also expected to investigate former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in for questioning as well, reported The WSJ. Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Tom Carper of Delaware introduced a bill during the 115th Congress on July 31 to counter the Trump administration’s citizenship question. Their bill, the Census Equality Act, would have required the decennial census and American Community Survey to collect data on citizens’ sexual orientation and gender identity. It did not pass the Senate, and the legislation actually worried some LGBT advocates who did not see an advantage to compiling that kind of data on people who fall under the LGBT umbrella. NPR reported: ome data privacy experts worry the information could be used against LGBTQ people, especially when many states do not have laws banning workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

  5. By Andrew Aleksi-Lankinen - The Stolen Valor Act of 2013, makes it a crime, to make it a crime for a person to fraudulently claim service in the military with the intention to receive money, property, or other benefits. After already helped put the kids at Covington Catholic through hell and then some based on absolute lies, the Washington Post very quietly retracted the claim that Nathan Phillips served in Vietnam. Of course, they had to Nathan Phillips claimed he served in Vietnam in 1976 when talking to reporters The Toledo Blade, but as you probably know the war ended in 1973. He said he was a marine veteran but the last marine unit left in 1971 when he was 16 years old. “Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam,” the update says. Nathan Phillips has a history of lying about his military service as over $6,000 was raised for a documentary about his life where he claimed to be the Vietnam veteran that he is not. Director Maria Stanisheva said the documentary was about Nathan Phillips’ belief that he could pray his wife’s cancer away and it also talked about his rough upbringing, and the fact after he allegedly served in Vietnam then he struggled heavily with alcoholism. I reached out to Ms. Stanisheva for comment, I am yet to hear back from her. The Navajo code talkers must be looking down from heaven in absolute shock, shame, and horror over the fact Nathan Phillips spits on the graves of so many heroic warriors, just so he could make some children he disagrees with look bad. These kids some as young as 14 can’t go to school because the guillotine left has made school shooting threat after school shooting threat, and other terroristic threats, these children are in fear for their lives, they have been doxxed again and again and again and again and again and again, all based on a lie by a man who has completely lied about his own life. Dear friends this is about as sociopathic and evil as it gets which is saying something when we are talking about the bloodthirsty guillotine left.

    Baptism - necessary for salvation ?

    Acts 10:44-48 44While Peter was still saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell on all who heard the word. 45And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles. 46For they were hearing them speaking in tongues and extolling God. Then Peter declared, 47“Can anyone withhold water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” 48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to remain for some days. So much heresy demolished in just one passage. People heard, belived, and we're saved and sealed with The Holy Spirit, 100% faith alone before being baptised.
  8. By Kevin Daley - The Trump administration will ask the Supreme Court to decide whether the government can append a citizenship question to the 2020 census questionnaire, the Department of Justice said Tuesday. U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman forbade the government from incorporating the citizenship question on Jan. 15 in a sweeping decision that ran almost 300 pages. At the administration’s bidding, the Court agreed to review a separate question arising from the citizenship case in December. After Furman issued his decision, the plaintiffs asked the justices to dismiss that case. The Department of Justice responded to that request in court filings on Tuesday, revealing they planned to appeal Furman’s decision in full directly to the high court. “The government intends to file forthwith a petition…to review the district court’s January 15, 2019 opinion and order vacating and enjoining the reinstatement of the citizenship question to the 2020 decennial census,” Solicitor General Noel Francisco wrote. Francisco emphasized the pressing time constraints at hand: the government must finalize the census questionnaire by June, which is not enough time for the ordinary appellate process to play out. “It is exceedingly unlikely that there is sufficient time for review in both the court of appeals and in this Court by that deadline,” Francisco wrote. Therefore, he continued, granting the administration’s request to hear the case now “is likely the only way to protect this Court’s opportunity for review.” Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross issued orders providing for the addition of a citizenship question to the census survey in March 2018. The Department of Commerce oversees the Census Bureau. Tuesday’s filing from the government is the latest in a succession of cases in which the Trump administration has short-circuited normal judicial process and asked the Supreme Court to review a district court decision before a federal appeals court does. Those requests, called petitions for certiorari before judgment, are rarely granted. A sprawling coalition of civil rights groups, city governments, and blue states filed lawsuits challenging the citizenship question’s inclusion in April 2019. Those plaintiffs warn the citizenship question will reduce minority participation in the census. As such, the plaintiffs say they stand to lose federal funds and representation in Congress. The Constitution mandates a census every 10 years to apportion seats in the House of Representatives among the states. Population is also used as a basis for rewarding federal aid. A citizenship question was included in the census until 1960.

  11. By Tim Pearce - Kamala Harris is running for president on a platform of raising taxes on the wealthy, implementing a Socialist healthcare system and reforming state cash bail systems in favor of poor inmates, The Washington Post reports. The U.S. senator from California will compete with other Democrats for the chance to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. Harris announced the start of her campaign Monday. Harris intends to make taxes a focal point of her campaign, contrasting her tax package with the legislation Trump and Congressional Republicans passed in December 2017. Harris’s tax plan, proposed Oct. 18, is a Robin Hood-type plan that would hike tax rates on wealthier Americans to cover the cost of tax credits, up to $3,000 for individuals and $6,000 for families, offered to people making under $100,000 a year. The tax credits would not be available for Americans who do not earn a paycheck. Harris’s tax plan would overwhelmingly benefit poor and lower middle-class individuals and families, while increasing the tax burden of those over the $100,000 cutoff. It would reduce federal revenues by roughly $2.7 trillion over a decade. Harris publicly backed the Medicare-for-all plan of self-proclaimed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders in August 2017, arguing that “It’s not just about what is morally and ethically right, it also makes sense just from a fiscal standpoint.” The Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank, estimated that a Medicare-for-all plan could cost as much as $42 trillion over a decade and more than five-times that amount over the course of 30 years. Proponents of the plan say the immense cost would be offset by freeing Americans from paying for health plans and premiums, but skeptics and critics say that argument is not backed by any sort of data. Massive tax hikes and spending cuts in other programs would have to come with the single-payer system to make it financially feasible, according to the Manhattan Institute. Harris also plans to push reforms to cash bail systems to favor poor Americans. Harris, along with Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, introduced a bill in July 2017 that would offer a three-year, $10 million grant to states that reform or abolish their cash bail systems. The push may stave off criticism coming from fellow Democrats over Harris’s career as a federal prosecutor for actions such as criminalizing truancy, which disproportionately affected poor families.

  12. By Molly Prince - Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris raised approximately $1.5 million in one day following her announcement that she will be seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020. In the 24 hours after Harris announced her presidential bid, she received an influx of primarily small donations from more than 37,000 individuals, Harris’s campaign told The Wall Street Journal. During the first 12 hours, the California senator had fundraised $1 million, with an average contribution of more than $35 per donor. Comparatively, Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders raised the $1.5 million over the same time period after he launched his presidential campaign in 2016, reported WSJ. He ultimately raised $238 million by the end of his campaign, primarily from donations of $200 or less. Leading up to her presidential announcement, the first-term senator had been actively elevating her national profile. Harris spent more money on Facebook ads during the summer than any other senator despite not being up for re-election in November 2018, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. Harris, a high-profile member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, faced both massive backlash and praise for her combative line of questioning of Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings. She later used her role in the tumultuous confirmation process to raise funds for vulnerable Democrats during the midterms. Following Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Harris is the third senator, and third female senator, to declare their plans to begin the legal process of running for president in 2020. If elected, Harris would be the United States’ first female president. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ran, but lost to President Donald Trump in 2016.

  13. By Henry Rodgers - The U.S. Senate is set to vote on two bills which could reopen the government as both leaders in the Senate agreed to push forward on votes Tuesday afternoon. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer both agreed to put both President Donald Trump’s shutdown bill and the Democratic proposal, which was already passed by the House. Both will go up for vote on the Senate floor Thursday afternoon. Both of these bills would reopen government immediately. However, the bills would need 60 “yes” votes in order to pass, which is unlikely at this point as neither party has the bipartisan support needed. This comes as the government is on its 32nd day of a partial shutdown, as both parties have failed to come to an agreement on border security, a main issue for Trump and Republicans, which they say must be included in a bill in order for the government to reopen. Also a group of Republican and Democratic senators teamed up to put together a letter to send to Trump, asking him to reopen the government Wednesday. McConnell canceled the Senate’s scheduled recess this week to figure out an end to the partial government shutdown.

    Sick With The Flu

    Thanks my dear friend!
  15. By Joshua Gill - An auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles decried the social media response to the Covington Catholic High School students Tuesday as “quite literally Satanic. Bishop Robert Barron, dubbed “the bishop of Catholic social media,” denounced social media users who slandered and at times urged violence against the Covington students filmed in a confrontation with Nathan Phillips, a Native American and U.S. Marine Corps veteran. Barron said the initial response toward the students, sparked by short excerpts of hours of video, was “morally outrageous,” especially given their efforts to harm the students’ lives. Barron clarified that he didn’t intend to attack or defend the boys, but to decry “the morally outrageous and deeply troubling nature of the response to this occurrence, one that I would characterize as, quite literally, Satanic.” The bishop noted that the response went beyond cruel words into actions that could severely harm boys’ lives and their families. “As I continued to survey the reactions, I began to come across dozens urging retribution against the boy, and then dozens more that provided the addresses and email contacts of his parents, his school, and his diocese,” Barron wrote. “I remember thinking, ‘Oh my goodness, do they realize what they’re doing? They’re effectively destroying, even threatening, this kid’s life,’” he added, referring to Nick Sandmann, identified as the boy who wore the Make America Great Again hat and who smiled at Phillips. “I am proud to say that I am a priest and a theologian because of the good Dominicans who formed me when I was a young man. The Dominican dedication to truthfulness, lively preaching, and fellowship have inspired me throughout my life.” — Bishop Robert Barron pic.twitter.com/jxYqZypO7P — Dominican Friars (@dominicanfriars) October 29, 2018 Barron argued that the way social media users lashed out at the Covington boys was a prime example of what Franco-American philosopher René Girard called the scapegoating mechanism, in that the online community used the boys as a scapegoat for the rising tensions in the political and religious landscape of the U.S. “When tensions arise in a group (as they inevitably do), people commence to cast about for a scapegoat, for someone or some group to blame. Deeply attractive, even addictive, the scapegoating move rapidly attracts a crowd, which in short order becomes a mob. In their common hatred of the victim, the blamers feel an ersatz sense of togetherness. Filled with the excitement born of self-righteousness, the mob then endeavors to isolate and finally eliminate the scapegoat, convinced that this will restore order to their roiled society,” Barron wrote. That urge to victimize and eliminate the chosen scapegoat is Satanic in nature, as one of Satan’s names in the New Testament is “ho Satanas,” or the accuser. “When looking for evidence of the Satanic in our culture, don’t waste your time on special effects made popular by all of the exorcism movies,” Barron wrote. “Look no further than your computer and the twisted ‘communities’ that it makes possible and the victims that it regularly casts out.” Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.

  16. By Chuck Ross - The FBI’s former general counsel acknowledged a series of ‘abnormal’ and ‘unusual’ steps that were taken during the early days of the bureau’s investigation into possible Trump campaign collusion with Russia James Baker told lawmakers last year that during the 2016 campaign, a DNC lawyer provided him with information alleging that a Russian bank had a back channel communication system with Trump entities Baker also said that he reviewed an application for a surveillance warrant against Trump aide Carter Page, even though he rarely if ever handled warrant applications in other cases James Baker, the FBI’s former top lawyer, told Congress last year about a series of “unusual” and “abnormal” steps he took in the early days of the bureau’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Baker told lawmakers during testimony on Oct. 4 and Oct. 18 that even though he rarely handled applications for surveillance warrants against American citizens, he reviewed one that the FBI was seeking against Carter Page, the former Trump campaign adviser. Baker, who resigned from the FBI in May 2018, also said that a meeting he had on Sept. 19, 2016, with a lawyer working for the DNC. The meeting was unprecedented for Baker, who told lawmakers that he could not recall ever having met with an outside counsel during his FBI tenure. That same attorney, Michael Sussmann, worked for the law firm that hired Fusion GPS, the company behind the Steele dossier. Sussmann was also peddling information related to the Trump-Russia investigation to media outlets during the same time period he was meeting with Baker. Baker disclosed those details in testimony before a task force comprised of members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees. Republicans on the task force have investigated the FBI’s Trump-Russia probe, as well as its claims to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) to obtain warrants against Page. Baker defended he FBI’s handling of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant applications. He did not acknowledge that his activities in the beginning stages of the FBI probe were improper or unethical. Baker told lawmakers that he normally did not handle FBI applications for surveillance warrants against American citizens, but made an exception for an application to spy on Page because of the sensitivity of the matter. Baker said that he wanted to review the initial FISA application relatively early in the process, before it reached the desk of then-FBI Director James Comey. “So I wanted to see it when it was gelled enough but before it went through the process and before it went to the director. I wanted to see it and I wanted to read it because I knew it was sensitive,” Baker told House investigators, according to Fox News. “So that is why you took the abnormal or unusual step in this particular situation because it was sensitive?” a Republican asked Baker. “Yes,” he replied, adding that, “I wanted to make sure that we were filing something that would adhere to the law and stand up over time.” He also said that “almost all of the FISA applications did not go through me.” House Republicans have accused the FBI of misleading the FISC by failing to disclose details about the origins of the Steele dossier, the infamous and unverified document that alleges a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Kremlin. The FBI relied heavily on the dossier to obtain four FISA warrants against Page. The applications for those warrants did not disclose that the DNC and Clinton campaign funded the report, which was written by former British spy Christopher Steele. The FBI also did not disclose that Steele had expressed his desire to see Donald Trump lose the election. Baker also laid out details of a meeting he had on Sept. 19, 2016, with Michael Sussmann, an attorney for Perkins Coie, which represented the DNC. Perkins Coie is the firm that hired Fusion GPS to investigate Donald Trump’s links to Russia. Fusion, in turn, hired Steele. Baker acknowledged that the meeting with Sussmann was abnormal in that he had never before met with an attorney who directly provided him evidence related to an investigation. In the meeting, Sussmann provided Baker with information alleging that the servers of Russian bank Alfa Bank were in communication with the Trump Organization’s servers. Baker told lawmakers that Sussmann described “what appeared to be a surreptitious channel of communications” between Trump’s enterprises and “a Russian organization associated with the Russian Government.” Sussmann shared similar information with reporters from multiple news outlets. He was a source for The New York Times, and the House Intelligence Committee revealed in a report released on April 27 that Sussmann spoke with Franklin Foer, a journalist who laid out the Alfa-Trump connection in a story published by Slate on Oct. 31, 2016. The story came under intense scrutiny, with numerous computer experts claiming that the contacts described in the piece could have been innocuous rather than evidence of a back channel connection between the Russian bank and Trump firm. One theory laid out by Republicans is that Clinton and DNC operatives, including Sussmann and Fusion GPS, attempted to disseminate allegations made in the dossier to as many people as possible, including in the media and at the FBI. One goal, according to the GOP theory, is that the operatives hoped the recipients of the information would take Russia allegations more seriously if they saw the allegations coming in through multiple sources that appeared unrelated. That strategy worked in at least one instance. The FBI stated in its FISA applications that a Sept. 23, 2016 article published at Yahoo! about Page did not appear to come from the same source as the dossier. But it turned out that Steele, the dossier author, had met with Michael Isikoff, the author of the Yahoo article, in mid-September 2016. Steele and Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson met with Isikoff and other journalists to provide information found in the dossier. They also reached out to and met separately with Bruce Ohr, a Justice Department official who would serve as Steele’s back channel to the FBI after the 2016 election. Ohr, whose wife happened to work for Fusion GPS, shared information he received from Steele in a meeting on July 30, 2016 with then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. It is unclear from Baker’s testimony whether he realized that the information from Sussmann mirrored information that appears to have been gathered by Fusion GPS and Steele. Steele’s Sept. 14, 2016 memo refers to Alfa Bank and its three founders. Baker acknowledged that he took the allegations seriously because they were coming from Sussmann, with whom he had worked at the Justice Department. “Is it fair to say that any materials passed by the FBI general counsel automatically have a reliability and a level of credibility attached to them? You’re the FBI’s general counsel, if you’re getting information from an outside source and passing it, [sic] on that means something,” one lawmaker asked Baker, according to The Epoch Times, which reported details of Baker’s testimony. “I suppose so, Congressman,” Baker replied. He also said that his encounter with Sussmann was “first” and “only” time he received information about an investigation from an outside attorney. “[This] is the first time and to your recollection the only time an outside counsel had information and was wanting to make sure it got to the general counsel of the FBI, and it happened to deal with the Russia investigation,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said. “I think that’s correct. Sitting here today, that’s the only one I can remember,” Baker said.

  17. By Joe Simonson - Democratic Party officials in Iowa are hoping to avoid another split within the party following the 2016 primary between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders by implementing changes to the caucus system for the 2020 race. According to Tuesday report from Politico, Iowa Democrats worry record turnout, as well as a potentially all-time high number of candidates, could accentuate voters’ divisions at a time when the party is still recovering from its devastating 2016 loss. To hopefully stop a 2016 repeat, the Iowa Democratic Party is “shopping for larger facilities to fit expected overflow crowds, investing in new technology to stave off check-in and head-counting snafus and pushing individual 2020 campaigns to create their own voter registration programs,” according to Politico. The party is also considering “tele-caucusing,” which would allow Iowa Democrats to participate in the caucus through phone or online. “The size of these things have outstripped the rules for which they were written,” David Yepsen, a veteran Des Moines journalist, told Politico. “The nature of the events have changed. These aren’t little party people sitting around the kitchen, which is what Jimmy Carter did, and George Herbert Walker Bush.” These potential modifications to the caucus process would also take place as the Democratic National Committee considers moving California’s elections to the beginning of the primary calendar, meaning that the Iowa caucuses could lose its reputation as the state where prospective presidential candidates gain immense momentum.

    All 613 Laws of the Old Testament

    Hi Becky, I thought it was ironic you mentioned how and the same thing was mentioned in a Bible study I was in this morning. Someone asked the group to pray for them to get discernment about a particular situation they are going through. While we were praying the guy said he thought of an image of a plate of full of food. He said he wanted to eat everything on that plate except for one thing, but it was that very thing he felt God wanted him to eat. After he shared the image, someone else commented, that it made them think about what Jesus said in John 14:26 (i.e. "the Holy Spirit will teach you all things and remind you of everything I said"). I thought that was ironic because it made me also think of a verse in Luke 11, where Jesus said, "...how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" which is in verse 13. So, it seems that Jesus is saying that it is the Holy Spirit's job to help us with understanding His words, if we are sincerely asking : ). I just thought I would share because the guys I was with in the Bible study this morning were discussing discernment too. In peace and Christian love, Trevor
  22. By Nick Givas - Immigration attorney Linda Vega said she’s surprised by Democrats’ rejection of President Donald Trump’s immigration compromise and called the deal a “great offer,” on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. “Currently [DACA] applicants are not able to reapply for any benefits. They’re at a standstill,” Vega said. “If they’re in court proceedings they’re being deported. This plan, this three-year offer by the president would offer them the opportunity to adjust their status to permanent residency or to continue studying in this country or to actually work and pay taxes. So it’s a great offer for a starting point.” Vega said she was surprised the deal fell through because it would give Democrats the ability to create a permanent fix for DACA. “I’m very surprised because if they’re asking for permanent solution this at least is a starting point to sit at the table and discuss making it a permanent solution,” she said. “And really, frankly that’s Congress’ job. It’s not the president’s job to offer a permanent solution. That’s why Congress members offer bills to make it a permanent law.” Vega claimed current DACA recipients are angry and frustrated over the gridlock and are missing out on opportunities to become more educated and assimilated into American culture. . “It is frustrating for them. And they’re full of anger. They’re full of fear. They don’t know whether they’re going to have to leave this country that they believe is their own,” she said. “But, many of them are losing opportunities to go to universities to study, to be in the workforce and to be part of our American culture. And this is an unfortunate situation that Congress won’t even come to the table and look at their benefit. It’s a very selfish behavior. [sic]” Vega also accused Democrats of being anti-Trump at all costs and said their behavior is holding the process back. “I’m very surprised they’re not even considering that there’s a possibility to make this a permanent law. They’re not even looking at offer, frankly because it’s President Trump offering. And I can’t think of any other solution or any other means that they won’t come to a reasonable discussion,” she concluded.

  24. By Kevin Daley - The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to hear its first gun rights case in almost a decade. The justices will decide whether a New York City ordinance which strictly regulates the possession and transportation of handguns outside the home is constitutional. Tuesday’s grant marks the first time that the Supreme Court has engaged with the Second Amendment since it issued a pair of landmark decisions in 2008 and 2010 which affirmed the constitutional right to keep guns in the home for self-defense. Since those two decisions, however, the federal courts have upheld a range of gun control measures against constitutional challenges, to the consternation of Second Amendment activists. The high court’s continued silence on gun rights in view of those rulings baffled many observers and periodically drew fierce dissents from the conservative justices. “For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in a June 2017 opinion. “But the framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a state denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it.” New York state residents must obtain a license from local officials to lawfully possess a firearm. In New York City, license-holders are only authorized to transport their firearms to one of seven gun ranges in the New York-area. They may not transport guns for any other purpose without written permission from the New York Police Department, nor may they take their guns beyond city limits. Three city residents and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association sued the city, alleging its gun transport ban violates the Second Amendment. One of the plaintiffs said in court filings that he wishes to carry his firearm to a second home for self-defense, while the other two want to use their guns in range and shooting competitions outside the city. In response, city lawyers say an earlier, more permissive licensing regime was rife with abuses which necessitated reforms that now govern gun permitting in the city. “These [abuses] included licensees traveling with loaded firearms, licensees found with firearms nowhere near the vicinity of an authorized range, licensees taking their firearms out on airplanes, and licensees traveling with their firearms during hours when no NYPD-authorized range was open,” they wrote in a brief to the justices. A federal trial judge and the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the city, prompting the appeal to the high court. The case, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York, will likely be heard in the fall. Content created by The Daily Caller News Foundation is available without charge to any eligible news publisher that can provide a large audience.
