Does anyone know for sure that the nuclear option is invoked for SCOTUS appointees? My understanding is that it has been invoked for cabinet positions and all of the federal judge appointments except Supreme Court. SCOTUS still requires 60 votes to end debate and then the Senate can vote to confirm.

Remember in 2013 when Harry Reid used the ‘nuclear option’ to confirm judges?
Harry Reid’s new rule was that no filibusters could be used to stop judges below the Supreme Court. All it took was a simple majority to confirm them.
Harry Reid changed a long-standing tradition in service of Democrat partisanship.
Fast forward to 2017. Republicans will have a simple majority in the Senate. And there are over 100 empty judge spots below the Supreme Court. ... mediately/

Supreme Court May Hear Case Affirming Right to Concealed Carry
The right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

Peruta is asking the courts to put that option back on the table in CA and everywhere else it has been denied, and basically make “shall issue” the law of the land.

If the court takes up this case, we’ll find out how its newest member will really rule on 2A issues. Ultimately, this could be the case that fills in some of the many gaps left by the Heller decision. If this passes, the urgency behind the national reciprocity act will ratchet down a bit more, because citizens in anti-gun states will finally be able to exercise their constitutional rights.

Now that we have Gorsuch on the bench, we have a chance.

I'm eagerly awaiting the Supreme Court's decision on whether it will grant review of the case. If Peruta's petition is denied, I understand there may be another similar case in the pipeline out of the D.C. Circuit that could make its way for review by the Supreme Court.

I'll ask again as I'm sure it was lost in the wash when this topic was just developing...

Doesn't this conflict with what the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals said in Moore/Shepard?

Trump needs to give the 9th circuit a good flush and drain the swamp some more. We need those jokers out of there. :rules:
