BOB - haven't you been keeping count? It was TRUMP who "packed" the court. The count is now 6 to 3 right wingers! Biden would have to replace 3 justices just to break even much less "pack the court". Furthermore, the new trump appointees are much younger than the 3 remaining liberal justices, but given the court as now composed I do not expect ANY president in the next 10 years to be able to replace ANY of them. And while many speak of the nuclear option of adding more justices to the court, NO ONE is seriously expecting this to happen as again he'd have to add 3 more justices just to break even and that would make it 12 justices which is an even number, so he'd have to add 4 which sounds even more ridiculous. Let's just see what this 6 to 3 super majority actually gets us. The SCOTUS usually only takes a gun case once every 50 to 100 years, and Heller wasn't that long ago.Rolling, God bless you. While I try to be optimistic, I find myself often defaulting to “expect the worst and you won’t be do disappointed” mode. As happy as I was with the 9th upholding the Benitez ruling, I was thoroughly dismayed with them staying their own ruling so our AG could appeal it to the SCOTUS. I never understood why the 9th would uphold the ruling, agree that it is unconstitutional, agree that it is a violation of constitutional rights, and say we will suspend those rights pending your appeal —- which I believe he has two years to make it. Now Biden gets elected, he packs SCOTUS, and we get shafted.
