Tiring Day

Writing expert declarations for New York's red flag law.  Their "expert" is insisting that the Statute of Northampton is the equivalent pre-1791 law.  Bruen specifically rejected the relevance of that law.  But just to be really thorough I am demonstrating not only is he trying to get a district judge to overrule the Supreme Court but his other citations are misrepresentations.  Finding obscure sources and quoting them in full is interesting but tiring.

  1. The contemporary "Game Laws" - prohibiting, among other hunting gear, greyhounds and setters - are interesting in light of this year's effort, in the UK, to outlaw a specific hybrid dog -- "XL Pit Bulls". It's always an effort by rulers to prevent "them" from using a disapproved "thing" , while allowing the All the King's Horses and All the King's Men to trample the people again and again.
