“A clear majority of citizens, whether measured across the nation or by each state, favors rational firearms regulation, even more so today than when the Supreme Court last visited the issue. Since then, mass shootings have become all too common.”
If true, it’s a result of media and politician lying and brainwashing.
Perhaps Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is now sleeping a little better these days. Dissenting from the refusals by the Supreme Court in a number of cases to entertain appeals involving the scope and meaning of the Second Amendment over the last several years, he has accused his colleagues of making the right to bear arms a “constitutional orphan.”
But that changed this month, when the Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal from the Second Circuit regarding the constitutionality of a New York City ordinance. The case, New York State Rifle and Pistol Association versus City of New York, concerns a law that bans residents with certain firearms licenses from taking their guns out of the city, even when the guns are unloaded and the ammunition placed in a separate container.
