McConnell, GOP fire back at Dems over SCOTUS

Showing some spine, Mitch McConnell fired back at Democrats who tried to intimidate SCOTUS:

“U.S. Senate Republicans accused five Democratic colleagues of threatening the Supreme Court with political retribution in an extraordinary clash over what is set to be the court’s first case on gun rights in a decade. In a letter to the court that used language normally reserved for the political arena, the 53 Republicans said the Democrats were threatening to add additional justices to the court if it doesn’t drop the gun-rights case as moot. “The implication is as plain as day: Dismiss this case, or we’ll pack the court,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and his 52 Republican colleagues said in the letter Thursday …”

Good for them.

Most of the time the only response Republicans give to Democrat attacks is silence.  Far too often they backtrack in a pathetic attempt to curry favor with a hostile media.

What McConnell ought to do now is schedule a vote on the Senate version of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, S.69.

Nobody wants this

According to the Poughkeepsie Journal:

Marc Molinaro made quite an entrance at the Schoharie County Republican Party’s annual summer fundraiser Sunday. The Dutchess County executive and 2018 gubernatorial candidate helicoptered in — literally — to make an appearance as those in attendance noshed on clams and barbecue at a Cobleskill driving range and mini-golf course. Molinaro’s arrival at the GOP event in the rural county west of Albany turned heads, not just because of the roar of the engine. It came as some Republican officials are mentioning him as a possible challenger to Rep. Antonio Delgado …”

His godawful campaign for Governor last year should have ended all talk like this. That is hasn’t shows the New York GOP has learned nothing from the man-beating they got at the polls.

Rep. Morelle holds town hall gathering on gun control

WHEC reports:

“… He said it was important to hear people’s frustrations and their suggestions on how to address gun violence on both a local and national level …”

Then why has he never held a meeting on pro-2A legislation?
