Some good news out of Long Island: a judge ruled that Philip Pidot has enough signatures to qualify for a Republican congressional primary against State Senator Jack Martins in the open CD-3 seat.

Because the primary is set for next Tuesday, Pidot’s campaign will have to go to court to have it pushed back in order to ensure his name appears on the ballots.  I don’t see why it could not be rescheduled for September like it used to be.

This presents a good opportunity to stick it to Martins for voting for the SAFE Act.

Congressional Democrats are staging a sit-in on the House floor because the Republican Majority won’t go along with any of their antigun initiatives.

Of course, local reps. Kathleen Rice, Steve Israel and Gregory Meeks are participating in this farce.

Charlie Rangel decided to kick it up a notch by declaring that he (and Congress) are special and should be protected by people with guns:

… “I think we deserve–I think we need to be protected down here.” …

That statement makes the case for term limits.

The Supreme Court declined to take up a challenge to Connecticut’s semi-auto ban.  That was not a surprise given they are one justice short at the moment.

This is not the end of the issue.  Some people think that Heller and McDonald settled the gun control debate when in fact they were more of a starting point.  We need to look at things from a long term perspective.  It took nearly 40 years for NRA and others to set up a legal framework which got us Heller.  It is entirely possible that it will take a couple of decades worth of court decisions and legal scholarship before the next right case makes it to them.

All four gun control proposals were rejected by the Senate mostly on party line votes.

Let the whining and hysterics begin.

This crap is supposed to be voted on this week. Fortunately it is all expected to die.
