SCOTUS gun decisions make some states' gun laws 'unconstitutional': Hugh Hewitt

Syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt compared New York's recent legal precedent on guns to the "unconstitutional" gun laws in other states Thursday on "Special Report." HEWITT: There are six other states, Bret, that have the same sort of regime about issuing permits that New York state does - a regime that was struck down as unconstitutional under the plain language of the Second Amendment today. Justice Alito - he wrote a concurring opinion - six justices agreed. And Justice Thomas wrote the majority opinion. But Justice Alito said, "Look, what we're deciding today is, very simply put, Americans have the right to go out of their house and carry their weapon in self-defense. They don't have to beg a bureaucrat to get that permit." And 43 states already agree with that. The seven states who have "ask and we may give you the permit" regimes - their laws are unconstitutional. No one should be surprised by this. It's been ten years coming and being made explicit, but it's not a surprise.

Hugh Hewitt: Primary elections are a 'warning shot' to Biden and the Democratic Party

Syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt slammed President Biden for "absurd letters"instead of taking action to address the nation's record gas prices on "Special Report." HUGH HEWITT: [Biden administration] could be doing a lot more. They could invoke the Defense Production Act and increase capacity at refineries. They could have approved the Keystone pipeline. They could reverse the president's first day in office decision to cancel that. They could expedite the leases that Admiral Kirby at the White House press podium today, said "there are 8,000 leases." That doesn't get them past various regulatory hurdles, like the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Water Act. They could do a lot to increase production in the United States. They're not doing it. Instead, the president is sending absurd letters. What he should not have done was the reckless spending last year. He got mad at the AFL-CIO yesterday, yelled at voters, told them he didn't want to hear any more lies about his reckless spending, that they were changing lives.

Biden doing everything he can to prevent lower gas prices: Hugh Hewitt

Syndicated radio host Hugh Hewitt said that President Biden is "throwing every obstacle in the way he can of lowering gas prices" Thursday on "Special Report." HEWITT: Secretary Yellen actually made me draw back and wonder when she said the production companies are not willing to produce [energy]. This very day, the administration canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska. Last week, they withdrew them in the Gulf of Mexico. Of course, we can go back to Keystone. This is an anti-energy administration. And that, of course, as Kimberly [Strassel] just said, increases pressure. Energy markets are forward-looking and so long as they see ahead of them obstacles from every department, regulatory impediments from every official with a pen and a bureaucratic sense of mission, they're not going to produce. I just cannot actually believe that Janet Yellen said it's the producer's fault when Joe Biden is throwing every obstacle in the way he can of lowering gas prices.

Hugh Hewitt Explains Why He Won’t Cover Jan. 6: ‘I Like My Audience. I Don’t Want Them to Turn Me Off’

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt spoke with former Governor Chris Christie (R-NJ) on Monday and offered an explanation for why he “never” talks about Jan. 6. The conversation began with Hewitt asking Christie why the “Manhattan-Beltway media” are so laser-focused “on the censure of Liz Cheney, my friend, and Adam Kinzinger” and missed what he deems to be the big news out of the RNC winter meeting last week – the rule dropping the GOP’s association with the Presidential Debate Commission.
