The “good reason” criteria states that the individual applying for the license needed to “demonstrate a good reason to fear injury to his or her person by showing a special need for self-protection distinguishable from the general community as supported by evidence of specific threats or previous attacks which demonstrate a special danger to the applicant’s life” and specifies that “The fact that a person resides in or is employed in a high crime area shall not by itself establish a good reason to fear injury to person or property for the issuance of a concealed carry license.”
That all changed Monday when U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. approved a preliminary injunction against Lanier’s enforcement of the “good reason” requirement, stating definitively that it infringes on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
“We don’t believe the choice is war or to accept this deal,” Dermer said. “We believe the way to peacefully resolve this issue is to combine a credible, military threat of force with crippling sanctions.”
“That combination has not been deployed for 10 years,” he noted. “We had sanctions on Iran for a long time, but crippling sanctions only began in 2012. And within 18 months, Iran came to the negotiating table desperate to see those sanctions removed.”
“What this deal does is it dismantles the sanctions regime and leaves Iran with its nuclear program essentially intact—albeit with constraints, but within about a decade those constraints are removed and Iran will have an industrial [nuclear] program tomorrow,” Dermer said.
“Under this deal, Iran will walk into the nuclear club. The alternative to this is to hold firm, ratchet up pressure, and to not assume that what Iran won’t agree to today, they won’t agree to tomorrow.”
The U.S. has set a June 30 deadline for reaching final terms on a nuclear agreement with Iran.
Please, correct me if I’m wrong; but wasn’t there at least one deadline that has come and gone? And if so, why would another deadline make any difference?
Also remember that the context of “the U.S.” means (THHO)Obama and Hanoi John – both having demonstrated total disregard for the historical patterns of treachery, lies and deceptions of the perverts in charge of Iran. Also, having demonstrated total lack of gonads to stand up to them.
» Apparently a “moderate” Muslim is one that does not believe in the Koran or approve of the behavior of Mohammad. By definition, a moderate Muslim is not a Muslim. The very notion of a moderate in the context of an ideology as extreme and intolerant as Islam is preposterous.
To defend Islam you must be either ignorant or evil. In neither case do you deserve to be coercively subsidized by the government.

the Obama administration knew that Benghazi was being used as a hub for the transfer of lethal weapons to Syria back in 2012. Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell suggested to Bret Baier that the CIA wasn’t doing the transferring, but was watching someone else do it.
just FIVE DAYS after the attack on the ‘consulate’ in Benghazi, the Obama administration via the DNI concluded that the terrorist attack had been planned at least 10 days before the attack occurred and that it wasn’t a coincidence that it happened on the anniversary of 9/11. If you recall, the Obama administration was lying about it, saying it was a demonstration against a film about the Prophet Muhammad that got out of control. They were saying this on the very same day this DNI memo went out to different agencies including the National Security Council and the State Department.
They not only concluded that it was planned ten days in advance, they also wrote why the attack was planned
One last thing this report reveals is another memo that shows the Obama administration not only knew ISIS was a threat, but predicted the formation of a caliphate 17 months before Obama compared ISIS to a junior varsity team.
…unfortunately, I fear that Americans are no longer principled enough to be objectively outraged by something
Well, Obama’s commitment to reducing the number of nuclear weapons in the world is just going swimmingly, isn’t it?
… the vast majority of charities surely do not skim 90 percent off the top for travel and overhead expenses, as the Foundation does …
… Routing $75,000 to these worthy causes via the Clintons might have meant that the charities ended up with ten cents on the dollar, or about $7,500 of Stephanopoulos’s money to divide up among them. Had he consulted various adjudicators of charity performance, he could have easily learned that giving to something run by Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton was not a very efficient way of saving trees and helping those infected with HIV.
But why would George bother with such verification when trees, HIV or charity (period) had nothing to do with his reasons? He knew he was shuffling money to the Clintons, period. Screw charities.
if Stephanopoulos were to grill Stephanopoulos, he would surely ask why the donations started then and why they went to the Clintons, given that the dates roughly coincide to when Hillary was transitioning out of the State Department and readying her run for the presidency.
From the comments:
… he was thinking about a position in Clinton White House II. Donate to the foundation, use his “journalistic” position to do his best to discredit anyone who is questioning Hillary’s Presidential suitability, and who knows?

… here’s the real bottom line: what we actually need is not more campaign finance laws or more disclosure laws. What we really need is a government that strictly follows the Constitution. A government bound by the Constitutional cannot unequally favor one corporation over another. Limited, Constitutional government cannot, by its very nature, play along with crony-capitalism.
If we truly had a limited, Constitutionally-bound Federal government, anyone could give money to anyone else, and there wouldn’t be a problem because the Federal government officials wouldn’t have the ability or authority to sell influence and power in the first place.
As security experts noted a few months ago when the Hillary email scandal first broke, it’s virtually certain that Hillary’s email server was compromised by foreign governments. Which means Hillary put her own butt-covering over national security.
If America is willing to elect a sleazy, lying, unscrupulous, unethical, lying crook like Hillary in 2016, well, we deserve everything we get. Yes, I said “lying” twice. Because she warrants it.

Jeb Bush is running as this season’s calm, reassuring, won’t frighten-the-horses candidate who’ll suck up all the money that might otherwise go to wild’n’crazy frothing loons like Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, or whoever. Why, he’s such a normal, reasonable chap he’s even hot for action on “climate change”. Can’t get more normal than that, can you?
Describing Jewish homes in Jerusalem, one of the world’s oldest cities, a city that all three religions in the region associate with Jews and Jewish history, as “settlements” is a triumph of distorted language that Orwell would have to tip his hat to. How does one have “settlements” in a city older than London or Washington D.C.? To understand that, you would have to ask London and Washington D.C., where the diplomats insist that one more round of Israeli compromises will bring peace to the region.
Whether Joe Biden was the victim of the Jews or the Jews were the victims of Joe Biden is all a matter of perspective. The Hitler Administration was quite upset to find that Jewish athletes would be competing in the 1936 Munich Olympics. When you ethnically cleanse people, they are supposed to stay ethnically cleansed. It’s in poor taste for them to show up and win gold medals at the Olympics or rebuild their demolished synagogues. It’s insulting to the ethnic cleansers and their accomplices.
That sounds like a harsh accusation, but it’s completely and undeniably true.
This is the nature of the twisted freak show our politically correct overlords are imposing not just on adults, but on children.
… The moral compass wasn’t lost; it was deliberately smashed.
So, now that we know that she’s a lying leach like her father, the real question is: can she read a teleprompter? If so, I’m sure there’s a job at MSNBC waiting for her! Actually, if not, I’m still sure there’s a job at MSNBC waiting for her.
Signs of how Obama thinks about dissent and free speech were evident in a bill he tried to pass in 2007. The bill would make lying a federal crime if it concerned politics around election time.
By rights, that should put Obama in prison but it’s geared to set up Republicans.
They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney, we’d have a condescending president who looked down on his female critics as “little ladies” who didn’t understand how the world works. And they were right! I voted for Romney, and, well …
