comment Where is “no Tachanun” on Pessach Sheni documented?
The earlier question asks for sources both in support of saying Tahhanun and also in support of not saying Tahhanun. This question only asks for sources in support of not saying Tahhanun. Therefore, partial answers to this question are relevant to the prior question, whereas partial answers to the prior question (e.g. an answer only including a source in support of saying Tahhanun) may have no relevance to this question. That's why I said "perhaps".

Perhaps, though the prior one asks for sources for and against, while this one specifically asks for sources against.

Having read your most recent blog post, I now understand why you think Pesahh Sheni is sad in our generation (i.e. without Beit HaMiqdash). Nevertheless, it's a very happy time, indeed a Hag for those participating, in the eyes of the Torah and the society it encourages us to build.

Why should "[Pesahh Sheni] be a sad day"? It gives those, who were previously tameh, another chance to offer the Qorban Pesahh thereby avoiding the punishment of Karet (Mishneh Torah, Hilkhot Qorban Pesahh 5:1). That is a great cause for joy!

comment Why is Lag Baomer celebrated the way it is (or at all)?
Very well. Perhaps it is a Meta question; but, should we be correcting lowercase references to HaShem (e.g. "he" vs. "He")?

As to Rav Herschel Schachter's shi'ur above, the Rav touches on our subject starting at 86:55.

For those interested in the "Audio Roundup" in @Shalom's comment, I found an updated link on TorahMusings.com here, which links to Rav Schachter's shi'ur here.
