Nice Court You’ve Got There—It’d Be A Shame If Something Happened To It


Senator Whitehouse (D-RI) has filed a brief with the Supreme Court in case of New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. City of New York. In his brief he warns the court not to take up the case, lest it find itself ruling in favor of the Second Amendment claim made by the petitioner.

The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be “restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics,”

FDR’s threat of court packing worked 80-some-odd years ago. I hope the justices ignore this one.

BTW, Dick Durbin, Kirsten Gillibrand, Richard Blumenthal, and Mazie Hirono all signed on to Whitehouse’s threat to the court.

  1. I almost can’t believe that they actually made this threat in writing. It puts the court in a no-win situation. If they rule in favor of the second amendment, then they risk the wrath of some senators. If they vote the way they want (even if they believe it’s totally on the merits) it will look like they caved.

  2. On Monday, with Cocaine Mitch by his side, President Trump should cite this brief as he appoints 10 associate justices to the Supreme Court.

  3. So a politician files a brief threatening the Court, suggesting that it may have to be restructured to reduce the influence of politics.

    Sheldon Whitehouse is a moron. Trust me on this one. I’ve known this for years.
