2. yep. but this now has to go all the way to the supremes

Three or four district courts are overturning state bans. They have to go to the circuit level now. My guess is the aRW 5th circ. will iphold 5th e Texas ban. But it is all soon headed to SCOTUS. with zero as far as I know upholding bans.

4. Was just over at the site that shan't be named

and I see this:

"...the 10th Amendment will knock his ruling out of the park."

I keep hearing this "states' rights" argument all the time but I think conservatives forget that in the text of the 10th Amendment, there are a few words after the word "states".

Namely,

"...or to the people."

They'd get all persnickety if the state tried to infringe about the 2nd Amendment, but they have no problem with the state infringing upon the 14th Amendment.
