Who the blazes does Schneiderman think he is?!
The case turned down by the Supreme Court on Monday, Kachalsky v. Cacace, No. 12-845, was brought by five New Yorkers who had been denied permits to carry handguns in public. In urging the justices not to hear the case, Eric T. Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, said the state’s permit requirement was a reasonable regulation that was consistent with the Second Amendment. The Illinois law, by contrast, he said, amounted to a blanket prohibition.
It takes mighty big brass one to plead to the Supreme Court NOT to hear a case on U.S. law. I’m sure he’s a nice little tyrant, though.
Besides, at least according to the article, he’s wrong about the IL law.
a divided three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, in Chicago, struck down an Illinois law that banned carrying guns in public.
Either the article is wrong, or that AG just shot something stupid out of his mouth.
