    Ninth Circuit Will Revisit Controversial Gun Case
    Every time that the stars align and a pro 2A ruling miraculously comes out of the 9th Circus; all the anti-gun justices on the court petition for the an en banc review or a rehearing, so they can stack the panel with a majority of anti-gun justices.

    Does anyone actually believe that it will be different this time? I don’t.

    Looks like Trump is going to be able to appoint four new judge's.

    Clinton appointed tons of judges to the 9th circuit. I don't know how many Obama appointed (too lazy to look it up right now). Let's hope that Trump gets more than just 4 appointments, we need a conservative swing in the 9th if we ever hope to have any chance to fight gun control laws on the west coast.

    Judges - Seniority List

    That would take a major die off (which wouldn't hurt my feeling in the slightest), the Justices in the 9th Circus seem to stay forever, there are still 2 that Nixon appointed.

    But it's very possible Trump could add an additional 10 to those 4 he's already got.
    :s0090: Here's to hoping he gets more.

    Instead of waiting for the justices to die off, how about we just split it?

    GOP eyes new push to break up California court
    If this happens, lets hope that when they split the court, they work it so that niether court has it where the radical liberal justices have the majority.

    Why does Flake want to lump Alaska in with a non-geographically contiguous Court?

    Existing Ninth has fifteen districts, largest of all the Circuit Courts:
    District of Alaska
    District of Arizona
    Central District of California
    Eastern District of California
    Northern District of California
    Southern District of California
    District of Hawaii
    District of Idaho
    District of Montana
    District of Nevada
    District of Oregon
    Eastern District of Washington
    Western District of Washington
    District of Guam
    District of the Northern Mariana Islands

    What I'd do...
    Revised Ninth (Southwest Coast and Pacific Islands): Guam, N. Marianas, Hawaii, S. California, C. California, E. California, Nevada
    Revised Tenth (Southwest Inland): Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, E. Oklahoma, N. Oklahoma, W. Oklahoma, Utah, Wyoming, *Arizona
    *Transferred from 9th to 10th
    New Twelfth (Northwest) Alaska, W. Washington, E. Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, N. California
    By having California split across two Circuits, we get two bites at the apple striking down their leftwing lunacy. :)

    Also, in the above I envision San Fransh*tto being moved into Central, with Northern being redrawn to roughly State of Jefferson proposed boundaries.

    I think that Flake being from AZ, doesn't give a rat's bubblegum about the states with a liberal majority and he wants to align his state with the more conservative states, shielding AZ from the radical liberal justices of the west coast.

    Maybe he thinks that the rest of the districts are too far gone. I think that his plan would doom us in the PNW, making us live under the rules set by the PDRK, unless the SCOTUS overturned it said rulings.

    Your idea makes much more sense.......... but what do politicians know about sense?

    And Flake isn't really much of a conservative anyway, he's a Party hack who'd bend over and grab ankles for Josef Stalin if he were running under the GOP banner, just every once in a while leans the right way when the prevailing winds blow hard enough. I have a number of friends from the F-106 community who retired down to AZ who consider him unfit to serve as even compost...

    I like Flake's proposed 12th district since it removes Oregon and Washington from control by the liberal California judges and lumps us in with states that are more politically aligned with us.

    Where did you see that? Version I saw (previously-linked The Hill article) is his proposal leaves WA/OR in 9th Circus and only peels off Arizona, Nevada, Montana, Idaho and Alaska for his new 12th.

    Current 9th:
    District of Alaska
    District of Arizona
    Central District of California
    Eastern District of California
    Northern District of California
    Southern District of California
    District of Hawaii
    District of Idaho
    District of Montana
    District of Nevada
    District of Oregon
    Eastern District of Washington
    Western District of Washington
    District of Guam
    District of the Northern Mariana Islands

    Flake 9th:
    Central District of California
    Eastern District of California
    Northern District of California
    Southern District of California
    District of Hawaii
    District of Oregon
    Eastern District of Washington
    Western District of Washington
    District of Guam
    District of the Northern Mariana Islands

    Flake 12th:
    District of Alaska
    District of Arizona
    District of Idaho
    District of Montana
    District of Nevada

    Oops, I read your post and somehow attributed it to Flake. It's getting late and I guess I didn't pay enough attention. Please accept my apologies. I do like your proposal better.

    Happens to all of us every now and again, amigo... you'd be surprised how often I have to flash out Update Bulletins to clients as deeper dives into archive materials contradict prior indications on work-in-progress projects. :)
