SCOTUS rejects 2A cases

Recommended Posts


Washington — The Supreme Court on Monday turned away a host of challenges to state laws placing restrictions on firearms, declining to take up the contentious matter of gun rights in the U.S. after sidestepping the issue in April.

In declining to take up the appeals, the justices leave intact laws from several states that gun rights supporters said violated their Second Amendment rights. Among the cases turned away were legal battles over laws in at least four states — Massachusetts, Maryland, Illinois and New Jersey — that require residents to meet certain criteria in order to get a permit, including demonstrating a specific need, to carry a handgun outside the home.

In one of the cases out of Massachusetts, the justices declined to weigh in on the state's ban on certain semiautomatic firearms and high-capacity magazines. A dispute over a similar rule in Cook County, Illinois, was also rejected by the Supreme Court. In the case from California, the justices turned away a challenge to a state law that requires handguns sold in the state to use microstamping technology and meet specific design requirements.

This is a good example of “This will get changed in the SCOTUS!”. Not if they decide not to hear it. They have said that they will allow “reasonable restrictions”. But so far, they haven’t wanted to decide what reasonable is. I guess they are giving the states a lot of leeway. I expected this on permit issues and magazine capacities; but I didn’t expect it on an outright ban of the AR.

It must be nice to decide at your job, " I don't want to do that part"!! What use are they if they don't hear the cases?? Absolutely nothing but a liability, costing money and getting nothing in return!!

Folks...

Here's the big lesson in this:  The Supremes are edgy n nervous just like everyone else... They will not veer from the long time gubt narrative unless it is safe to do so... They are following the federal- state dogma, not moving to the left or right. 

 Just after the Civil War, most state legislatures passed laws taking upon themselves the new power to " regulate the wearing of arms with an eye to the public peace " , to loosely paraphrase these laws... The real reason was to keep arms out of the hands of " unflavored people groups " and give advantage to others... It has been that way since about 1868 or so...

 I predict that position will continue will be the supreme's position on any states issue that is a " Hot Button " issue...  Don't look to the Feds to " fix " anything controversial that smacks of reducing the individual state's powers n laws; it ain't gonna happen unless it is extremely n safely constitutional ...

It's a new era... The era of federal fear... They get mail too, and they can read and see what's goin on now.   If ya want a gun law changed, ya will have to do it at the state ballot box...  Keep your powder dry...

You're right except for the fact they did rewrite the Civil rights Act in blatant unconstitutional form ... unless that is the kind of action you referred to in paragraph 3.
