Ya gotta give it to Ladd Everitt. I mean, really someone who can take one of the most boneheaded actions by a sitting legislator in American history and call it playing hardball. That’s gotta be world-class delusional.

Senator Stupid and his cronies threatened the Supreme Court. A moron who must stand for reelection every six years is threatening people whose appointments are for life and who have no obligation to be answerable to him because they are the third part of the U.S. government.

Oh, and “perjurer” Kavanaugh is now Associate Justice Kavanaugh and his vote counts just as much as Stephen Breyer’s or Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s.

I know why Ladd Everitt hasn’t figured out why NYSRPA v. NYC is a big deal; he lives in a reality-resistant echo chamber, soaking up the kudos of the people who are just as clueless as he is.

But I can’t understand why nobody told Senator Stupid that his idiotic stunt was especially idiotic right now.

I don’t want to spoil the fun, so I am not going to delve into the specifics of this case or why it’s important. That’s right: no spoilers.

But I will provide a hint: Remember what the ruling in District of Columbia v. Heller did for the right to keep arms? That was the first shoe; the New York case might be the second, clarifying the right to bear arms.

Senator Stupid just poked a bear that is fully capable of mauling gun control as we know it. And apparently Ladd Everitt thinks it’s a masterstroke.

It’s not just NYSRPA v. NYC, either. There are other cases in the pipeline and there are enough justices on the bench to grant certiorari to a number of them.

Yup. Pissing off the Supreme Court was a brilliant political move. For the gun rights side.
