Ding, Dong, Chevron Deference is Gone


SCOTUS' overturn of "Chevron Deference" is  a wonderful way to start my weekend!  This decision reaffirms a separation between the Judicial and Executive branches, and removes from federal agencies like the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) the legal authority to create the regulations they enforce. 

It is the purpose of the Legislative Branch to write the laws, the Executive Branch to enforce those laws, and the Judicial Branch to interpret those laws. We do not allow police officers to write and interpret the laws they enforce, but that is exactly what the precedent of Chevron Deference has done over the past 40 years.

I am certain that the Federal Leviathan will be reluctant to give up this power and that change will not occur overnight. Indeed, it will take many years and many lawsuits to reduce the Regulatory State to a government closer to what the Founding Fathers envisioned. However, this was the critical first step along that path and I am eager to see what the future holds.

Assorted Calibers Podcast Ep 304: The Supreme Court and the Round Table

  

In This Episode

Due to a massive number of Second Amendment news stories, we're having an ACP  Round Table to discuss them! Join Erin, Weer'd, David, and Oddball as we analyze:

  • SCOTUS' ruling against the Bump Stock Ban,  and not only is the decision amazing but so is the dissent (but for entirely different reasons);
  • North Texas' District Court vacating the Pistol Brace Ban;
  • YouTube's new and draconian gun policy;
  • Hunter Biden's conviction of lying on a Form 4473, and the ironic possibility that his appeal will make him a champion for gun rights;
  • President Biden speaking at the "Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund’s Gun Sense University Conference" while his son was being convicted (the speech was as boring as you'd expect);
  • and an alleged attack thwarted by law enforcement which Weer'd finds fishy.
