My work protecting voting rights is a reflection of my core values, both as an American and as a Jew. I'm humbled to be this year's recipient of the Raphael Lemkin Human Rights Award from @truahrabbis. I hope you can join me virtually on 5/26:

The case - NYSRPA v. Corlett - concerns the constitutionality of New York's concealed-carry law that requires a person to show "proper cause" to obtain a carry license & therefore limits CCLs to those w/ a specific & articulable need for protection that is not speculative.

The 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 9th Circuits have upheld the type of "good cause" laws the Supreme Court will review. The DC Circuit is the only court of appeals to strike one down.

Order: https://supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/042621zor_e18f.pdf

Along with New York, 6 other states require this heightened showing of good cause or justifiable need: CA, DE, HI, MD, MA, & NJ. The framework of all those laws will hinge on the outcome of this case.

According to my back-of-the-napkin calculation (with 2019 Census population estimates), these type of laws govern about 83 million people, or about 1 in every 4 Americans.

As Abreu started filling out the purchase forms, the worker brought over the pistol and explained what came with the gun, police said.

When he mentioned the gun came with both a six- and eight-round magazine, Abreu is accused of replying: “Man, that’s fine, I got eight rounds to kill eight people today.”

The worker explained to Abreu that he couldn’t sell him the pistol after making that kind of comment and contacted his manager to explain the situation, police said....

“He does have a prior felony conviction which under state law prohibits him from possessing a firearm,” Victoriano Flores, a Harris County assistant district attorney, told KPRC.

This is an amazing story of bravery by Charles French, a black WWII sailor, who swam through shark infested waters to save his shipmates. @MalcolmNance and other navy vets are asking the @USNavy to review if Frenchs medal should be upgraded.

I believe this is political commentary where Peach is a Polish citizen concerned about corruption and Dennis is the Polish government stifling their speech and calling them radicals. Someone who speaks Polish please confirm
