CNN BREAKING NEWS . . .


The Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a constitutional challenge to a Connecticut gun law passed in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. 

The law bans certain semi-automatic assault weapons and large capacity magazines.

Although the decision comes days after the Orlando shooting, that event probably didn’t move the justices either way.

In recent years the Court has declined to take up a major Second Amendment case. In 2008, the Supreme Court held 5-4 in District of Columbia v Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to bear arms, and except for a follow up decision two years later, the court has not weighed in again.

“The FBI will release a partial transcript Monday of Omar Mateen’s phone calls with police negotiators during a mass shooting in Orlando last week that left 49 dead, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Sunday.

Lynch said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that during the calls, a police negotiating team was trying to determine who Mateen was, “where he was and why he was doing this, all while the rescue operations were continuing.”

Authorities have previously said that during three conversations with a 911 dispatcher, Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS’ leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.”  MORE
