One of Donald Trump’s great legacies will be reshaping the Supreme Court.
Democrats are about to learn that lesson the hard way.
That’s because the Supreme Court is setting up Joe Biden for this crushing defeat.
On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Keith M. Corlett, which could strike down laws across the country restricting the right of Americans to conceal carry firearms.
The Daily Caller outlines the facts of the case:
The case began when Robert Nash and Brandon Koch applied for a concealed carry permit in Rensselaer County. Both applications were denied after the licensing officer determined they each “failed to show ‘proper cause’ to carry a firearm in public for the purpose of self-defense, because [they] did not demonstrate a special need for self-defense that distinguished [them] from the general public.”
Nash cited a recent string of robberies and his recent completion of an advanced firearm safety training course as a reason for wanting to carry a firearm outside of his home. Koch cited his “extensive experience in the safe handling and operation of firearms and the many safety training courses he had completed” as a reason for his request.
New York is a “shall” issue state instead of a “may” issue state.
That distinction allows the state to impose strict gun controls on conceal carrying.
This case is the first major Second Amendment case since the landmark 2008 Heller decision, which held that Americans have a fundamental right to own guns.
But that case did not address any other gun control laws other than a very narrow interpretation that the Second Amendment applied to owning a gun in your own home.
This case could be the start of the new conservative majority slamming the breaks on the gun control agenda pushed by Joe Biden and other Democrats.
