President Barack Obama is teaming up with liberals in Congress to ban so-called “assault weapons” after the Islamic terrorist attack.
Now, the U.S. Supreme Court just got involved, and they decided to reject two challenges to assault weapons bans in two diferent states, which means the bans will remain law.
This is a massive decision, as it signals to Obama that the court is ready to restrict 2nd Amendment rights!
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left in place gun control laws in New York and Connecticut that ban military-style assault weapons like the one used in last week’s massacre at an Orlando nightclub, rejecting a legal challenge by gun rights advocates.
The court’s action underlined its reluctance to insert itself into the simmering national debate on gun control. The Supreme Court issued important rulings in gun cases in 2008 and 2010 but has not taken up a major firearms case since.
The justices declined to hear an appeal of an October ruling by the New York-based 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that upheld laws prohibiting semiautomatic weapons and large capacity magazines in the two northeastern states.
“Sensible gun safety legislation works. The Supreme Court’s action today in declining to hear this appeal affirms that the reforms enacted in Connecticut following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School were reasonable, sensible and lawful,” Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen, a Democrat, said.
The New York and Connecticut laws, among the strictest in the nation, were enacted after a gunman with a semiautomatic rifle killed 20 young children and six educators in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
The killer in Orlando used a Sig Sauer MCX semi-automatic rifle and a pistol, and not the AK-47 that has been incorrectly reported intentionally by the liberal media.
The Constitution guarantees gun rights, and “assault” weapons are usually cosmetic changes to guns that are otherwise legal. These bans exist because liberals don’t understand what they’re talking about when it comes to guns, but that doesn’t stop them from banning them.
Now, the U.S. Senate will vote on four separate bills to create more gun control. Thankfully, they are expected to fail.
