Donald Trump just cemented his legacy as president at the Supreme Court.
This was the moment conservatives were waiting for.
And Democrats got hit with some bad news at the Supreme Court that left their spirits crushed.
A six-to-three majority on the Supreme Court struck down the oppressive New York State concealed carry permit regime.
New York State made it nearly impossible for citizens to obtain a concealed carry permit to defend themselves when out in public.
Justice Clarence Thomas authored the majority opinion explaining that it was time to stop treating the Second Amendment as a “second-class right” and the court expanded the scope of the Second Amendment to extend to concealed carry outside the home.
The three anti-gun liberals on the Supreme Court melted down and authored a nonsensical dissent that basically boiled down to the fact the liberal justices all wished the right to keep and bear arms did not exist.
Justice Stephen Breyer – in what is one of his final dissents before shuffling off into retirement – went the predictable route and ticked off all the recent mass shootings – such as the tragedies in Uvalde, Texas and Buffalo, New York – and baselessly claimed the New York concealed carry permit was essential in stopping gun violence.
“The dangers posed by firearms can take many forms,” Justice Breyer wrote.
That did not sit well with Justice Samuel Alito who took a blow torch to this lie.
In his concurring opinion Justice Alito correctly noted that the New York State restrictions on containing a concealed carry permit did nothing to prevent the horrific events in Buffalo.
Justice Alito wrote:
In light of what we have actually held, it is hard to see what legitimate purpose can possibly be served by most of the dissent’s lengthy introductory section. . . . Why, for example, does the dissent think it is relevant to recount the mass shootings that have occurred in recent years? . . . Does the dissent think that laws like New York’s prevent or deter such atrocities? Will a person bent on carrying out a mass shooting be stopped if he knows that it is illegal to carry a handgun outside the home? And how does the dissent account for the fact that one of the mass shootings near the top of its list took place in Buffalo? The New York law at issue in this case obviously did not stop that perpetrator.
Justice Alito is 100 percent correct.
Gun control always fails to stop crimes.
That’s because criminals don’t follow gun control laws and these mass shooters invariably pass background checks.
Between 1994 and 2004 there were mass shootings including the school shooting at Columbine which was the first of the deadly attacks on schools.
Gun control only serves to disarm law-abiding American citizens.
The gun grabbers know this, and it is their ultimate goal.
Anti-gun Democrats’ end game is banning and confiscating every firearm in America.
That’s why they continually propose new and more restrictive gun control every time a mass shooting happens, and it comes out that the current level of gun control failed.
Justice Alito and the conservatives on the Supreme Court realized the game the left was playing and declared enough.
