And, how about we get a Constitutional ruling from the Supreme Court on that highly UN-Constitutional Bump-Stock Ban, stemming from an un-elected regulatory agency arbitrarily making up definitions out of the thin air…
Clarence Thomas calls the Second Amendment the Supreme Court’s “constitutional orphan,” lamenting that it is “a disfavored right in this court.” Sadly, the orphan could get neglected again this term.
On Monday, Dec. 2, the Supreme Court heard the case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York. An extremely restrictive New York state law barred some licensed gun owners from transporting their firearms outside of their homes except to specific gun ranges. This meant they couldn’t take their gun to a second home upstate if they wanted to do so to protect their family while traveling.
The state of New York rescinded the law, probably because it would have been overturned, and has begged the Supreme Court to declare the case “moot,” lest the justices issue a sweeping ruling on the constitutional merits. Based on reports from Monday’s oral arguments, it seems that the justices might buy this argument. The justices on the left all made it plain that they thought there was no case left to consider.
