    That's five cases. Is the Supreme Court ready to move forward after a decade of silence on this topic?

    They could put it all to bed with those 5 cases or maybe just 2 or 3.

    Imagine if we could visit NYC and carry our sidearm for protection. It would take a while before the criminals there got word about it, so their "gun violence" statistics would have quite a spike as the careers of several perps would be suddenly ended.

    Indeed.
    My only issue is that I cannot imagine visiting there.

    The supreme court just refused to hear Remington's appeal of a lawsuit that they lost on the basis that if they market A.R. 15 rifles to the general public (not just the cops and soldiers,)
    they have committed the offense of "negligent marketing" which strips them of any protection Congress might have otherwise given them through the lawful commerce in firearms protection act.

    Tell me more about your optimism that the Supreme Court is ready to expand gun rights and be the watchdog to end the infringement of the second amendment.

    Yeah, right.

    Exactly. SCOTUS is generally a watchdog for protecting government interests while claiming to be a champion for citizen rights.

    Remington Arms Co v. Soto is in it's early stages of the case. This denial by SCOTUS was just for the motion to dismiss by Remington. Way to early to know what will happen.

    ETA: I'm still bullish that SCOTUS is about to knock down the first domino.

    Well, the Remington AR-15 case will still continue with the defense that Remington was
    "not" negligent,
    didn't lie,
    didn't engage in deceptive advertising.

    Remington can demand the Sandy Hook victims prove THAT.

    But I think the judges know enough about the plaintiffs theory of the case that it ought to be dismissed on a directed verdict now, simply based on the facts. (not requiring interpreting a gun law). There's no way that advertising a perfectly legal product to a cross-section of thegeneral public could ever possibly be an unlawful trade practice.
    Right?
    [fingers crossed]

    I recall nothing about this case around here. Probably something higher up than my fingertips at fault, but here it is (again?).

    All filings in the case linked at site below.

    I did not realize that was at the Supreme Court certiorari stage yet. Thanks for adding it.
