    The U.S. Supreme Court rejected two appeals challenging California gun regulations, steering clear of the debate over firearm restrictions following last week’s mass shooting at a Florida high school.

    The justices left intact California’s 10-day waiting period for gun purchases, turning away arguments that the policy violates the rights of people whose background checks take less time. The court also rejected a National Rifle Association appeal and let California keep using fees paid on firearm transfers to help fund efforts to track down people who acquire guns illegally.

    I’m actually okay with this. At least until such time that a more “conservative” 2A outcome could be assured. Since SCOTUS decisions tend to set long term legal precedents for future court decisions, I’d just as soon wait until Justice Ginsburg kicks the bucket and/or Chief Justice John Roberts retires and President Trump can replace them with strict constitutionalist. At least by refusing to hear these cases, they keep the existing legal issue more-or-less localized and keep the door open for a future (national) SCOTUS decision.

    What if she doesn't die or retire until there is a dem in the WH?

    Are you saying, you don’t believe Pres. Trump will have an opportunity to select anymore Supreme Court justices during his Administration(s)? IMO, this is unlikely.

    I am saying they will do just about anything so as to keep trump from appointing another.

    I think she may have already passed, she just doesn't know it yet.

    I agree; especially, as long as the Senate remains in Republican hands - they’re the ones tasked with the “advise & consent” role.

    John Roberts isn't going to retire anytime soon, he's only 63. Either Ginsburg needs to return to the pit from whence she came forth, or Kennedy MIGHT retire. Also Breyer MIGHT retire. He's almost 80.

    Personally I'd be in favor of mandatory retirement at 75.

    I am pretty sure she has a pool of necromancers that take turns ensuring that she stays reanimated
