Liberals lost big at the Supreme Court this past term.
But there is more bad news to come.
And Clarence Thomas just dropped the hammer and Joe Biden had no idea what hit him.
Justice Thomas authored the landmark opinion in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen which struck down New York State’s restrictive regime to limit the number of concealed carry permits.
In the decision, Justice Thomas wrote for a six-justice majority that ruled that gun control schemes must now meet the standard of being in the history and tradition of America’s Second Amendment.
Justice Thomas’ opinion led the Supreme Court to ask lower courts to reconsider bans in New Jersey, Maryland, California, and Hawaii on so-called “assault weapons” and “high-capacity magazines.”
Bloomberg Law exclusively reports:
Several challenges to state gun laws were sent back to lower courts in light of the US Supreme Court’s landmark Second Amendment ruling limiting restrictions on firearm possession outside the home.
Known as a “GVR”—for grant, vacate, and remand—the justices often allow lower courts another shot at cases after a high court decision that could potentially change the analysis or outcome of a case.
The cases sent back Thursday include challenges to bans in New Jersey and California on high-capacity magazines that hold ten rounds or more, Maryland’s assault weapons ban, and Hawaii’s restrictions on open-carry.
In the order asking the lower courts to reconsider these cases Justice Thomas wrote that judges did not need to balance competing interests and merely rule on if banning guns was consistent with American tradition.
“While that judicial deference to legislative interest balancing is understandable—and, elsewhere, appropriate—it is not deference that the Constitution demands here,” Justice Thomas wrote.
Democrats are going to come to dread the Bruen decision.
The conservatives on the Supreme Court used the case to put massive amounts of gun control on the chopping block.
Joe Biden and the gun grabbers’ ultimate goal is to ban and confiscate every gun in America.
Short of that, the anti-gun politicians would like to disarm the American people by limiting the firearms they can purchase or the amount of ammunition at their disposal.
But now it looks like the conservative majority is about to wipe blue states’ gun control laws off the books.
Each day that passes demonstrates that the 2016 election was the most pivotal election of Americans’ lifetimes.
Because Donald Trump won that election Trump nominated three conservative Supreme Court Justices – Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett.
And Justices Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett provided the decisive votes in cases that overturned Roe v. Wade and rendered much of the left’s gun control playbooks unconstitutional.
