Conservatives celebrated Donald Trump nominating Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
So far, Trump’s two nominees have lived up to the hype.
And now the Supreme Court just let Chuck Schumer know he is in for this crushing defeat.
The Supreme Court recently announced it would hear arguments in January on a case centered around a New York City law which restricts the ability of firearms owners to transport their guns except in a few specific and narrowly defined circumstances.
The Daily Caller reports:
In January, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear a Second Amendment challenge to a gun control law for the first time in nearly 10 years. The case arose from a New York City regulation that banned city residents with “premises” handgun licenses from taking their own legally-owned firearms outside Gotham for lawful purposes. The city defended the law all the way to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, insisting it was essential to public safety. But ever since the Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal of that decision, city and state officials in New York have been running scared, desperately maneuvering to convince the justices to dismiss it. Now, it seems, their reckoning may be nigh, as the high court has scheduled the case for argument on Dec. 2.
The lawsuit, New York State Rifle & Pistol Assoc., Inc. v. City of New York, offers a revealing look into the mindset of gun control extremists, and in particular, their refusal to acknowledge the Supreme Court’s precedents that recognize the right to keep and bear arms as a fundamental, individual liberty.
Indeed, over a decade after the Supreme Court made clear that handguns are a protected Second Amendment “arm” and cannot be banned, New York State still generally prohibits the mere possession of pistols and revolvers. State residents, however, may qualify for an “exception” to this ban by obtaining a license issued by the locality in which they reside. The difficulty of obtaining a license depends on where in the state a person lives.
At first, the case seemed like an odd choice.
But it quickly dawned on Chuck Schumer and other gun-grabbers that the Supreme Court was set to expand the Heller precedent which defined the Second Amendment as a fundamental right.
This case – which court-watchers expect the conservatives will deliver a five to four majority victory – will push Heller to establish a right to self defense outside one’s own home.
At a time when Schumer and his cronies are pushing to ban and confiscate firearms, the Supreme Court is all set to deliver a historic victory for Second Amendment supporters.
