The Supreme Court just handed down a major ruling.
It did not go as many people expected.
And Chief Justice John Roberts handed down a betrayal that will leave you red with rage.
Gun rights advocates mounted a legal challenge to stop a federal ban on bump stocks that was drafted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Sessions drafted the ban after the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.
Second Amendment supporters argued the court should stay the bump stock ban while legal challenges make their way through the system.
Chief Justice John Roberts betrayed conservatives once again by rejecting the gun rights supporters’ motion.
Bump stocks, devices that allow a semiautomatic firearm to shoot more than one shot with a single pull of the trigger, will be banned in the United States starting Tuesday, despite an emergency request by gun owners to temporarily stay the Trump administration’s ban on bump stocks which took effect at midnight.
Chief Justice John Roberts denied a request to temporarily stay the Trump administration’s ban on bump stocks on Tuesday.
In December 2018, the Justice Department issued a ruling that banned bump stocks after President Donald Trump had earlier issued guidance to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “dedicate all available resources to … propose for notice and comment a rule banning all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns.”
The inequality of the judiciary system played out once again in this case.
Whenever liberals sue over a Trump immigration initiative, some court will happily stay the order and keep Trump’s policies from going into effect.
But when conservatives sue over a policy that violates the Constitution, the Supreme Court takes a pass.
The courts continue to be a “heads I win and tails you lose” propositions for the Right.
