The Supreme Court is in the process of handing down their final decisions before the November elections.
What the court decides helps shape the environment for the 2020 election.
And now the Supreme Court made this big decision that had Democrats asking what happened.
Monday was a bad day for conservatives at the Supreme Court.
In a shocking decision, the court – in an opinion authored by Trump appointee Neil Gorsuch – granted homosexuals and transgenders special rights and made it illegal for churches and religious institutions to fire homosexuals and transgenders even though their lifestyle choices conflict with church teachings.
But that wasn’t the only dose of bad news.
The court rejected applications for ten Second Amendment cases that could have further entrenched the idea that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Justices shot down one case challenging New Jersey’s tyrannical rule requiring applicants to demonstrate a need to conceal carry before obtaining a concealed weapons permit.
In New Jersey, this is a nearly impossible standard to meet.
Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote in a dissent that the court needed to take up a Second Amendment case “soon.”
Clarence Thomas went even further.
Thomas argued that while ”‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,‘” was written in the Constitution as clear as day, “in several jurisdictions throughout the country, law-abiding citizens have been barred from exercising the fundamental right to bear arms because they cannot show that they have a ‘justifiable need’ or ‘good reason’ for doing so.”
Thomas could not understand why the court would not want to settle legal questions surrounding the fundamental right.
“One would think that such an onerous burden on a fundamental right would warrant this Court’s review,” Thomas argued.
Thomas pointed out the obvious truth that the Supreme Court treated the Second Amendment like the red-headed stepchild of the Constitution.
“This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights,” Thomas continued.
Thomas contrasted how the court ignores the right to keep and bear arms – which is language actually included in the Constitution – with how the justices bend over backwards to protect the invented “right” to abortion on demand.
“And it seems highly unlikely that the Court would allow a State to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion. But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way,” Thomas exclaimed.
The Supreme Court has not taken up a major Second Amendment case in 10 years.
Conservatives expected a remade Supreme Court would deliver on their priorities.
But so far that has not happened.
