Joe Biden has a massive Supreme Court problem.
And Democrats are seething with rage over their latest defeat.
That’s because Clarence Thomas just drove the final nail in the coffin of this major Joe Biden agenda item.
Clarence Thomas wrote the landmark opinion in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen, which struck down the state’s scheme to prevent virtually all New Yorkers from obtaining a concealed carry permit.
In the decision, Justice Thomas wrote that “constitutional rights are enshrined with the scope they were understood to have when the people adopted them.”
The court also held that all gun control laws needed to comport with America’s history and tradition of protecting the Second Amendment.
Gun-grabbers like Joe Biden panicked over this decision, realizing that the court just put all restrictions on firearms on the chopping block.
Second Amendment activists scored a major win in Virginia when U.S. District Judge Robert E. Payne struck down a gun control scheme banning Americans ages 18 to 20 from purchasing handguns.
18 to 20-year-olds can serve in the military as well as buy rifles and shotguns.
But Judge Payne ruled that banning 18 to 20 year olds from buying handguns ran afoul of America’s history of upholding the right to keep and bear arms.
“Because the statutes and regulations in question are not consistent with our Nation’s history and tradition, they, therefore, cannot stand,” Judge Payne added.
Judge Payne pointed out that Americans were not prevented from availing themselves of any other Constitutional right just because they were under the age of 21.
“If the Court were to exclude 18-to-21-year-olds from the Second Amendment’s protection, it would impose limitations on the Second Amendment that do not exist with other constitutional guarantees,” the judge added. “It is firmly established that the First, Fourth, Fifth, Eight, and Fourteenth Amendments vest before the age of 21. […] Like these other rights, the Second Amendment’s protections apply to 18-to-20-year-olds,” Judge Payne continued.
Gun-grabbers threw a temper tantrum as their only goal is disarming every single law-abiding citizen in America.
“It’s a significant decision — we disagree with the outcome,” Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence William T. Clark said, adding that “there is compelling scientific evidence showing that teenagers are more impulsive and face unique elevated dangers from firearms.”
Gun-grabbers will surely appeal this case.
But it is going to end up right back in front of Clarence Thomas and the rest of the conservative Supreme Court Justices who are eager to send a message that the Second Amendment is no longer a second class right.
