The radical Left has had the Second Amendment in their sights for decades now. They’ve tried everything they could to effectively rip the constitution up entirely.
That’s why you have to read this staggering Supreme Court ruling on the Second Amendment.
Anytime a criminal uses a gun in a violent crime, the radical so-called “progressive” Left is quick to place the blame at the feet of law-abiding gun owners.
Usually those guns are obtained illegally but that doesn’t matter to the progressives.
Statistics also prove that the vast majority of violent gun crime is committed with the humble 9mm Glock, but again, those statistics don’t matter to the gun-grabbers who keep ranting about those scary “assault-style weapons.”
There are a handful of states that are standing strong in their defense of the U.S. Constitution, however.
Tennessee for example, passed a permit-less constitutional carry law in 2021, and are looking to pass a “true” constitutional carry bill with no government interference whatsoever.
Then there are other states like California who are making it near impossible to enjoy your Second Amendment rights.
Oregon is the latest state to take huge steps to infringe on the constitutional right to bear arms, with its law that it passed that bands gun magazines of more than 10 rounds and will require Oregon citizens to get a permit to be able to purchase any firearm at all.
In the application for the permit, the citizen must also complete a state-approved firearm safety course to be eligible for the permit.
The law also establishes more fees that citizens must pay as well as a Draconian database for the state to review all applications and the fingerprints and photographs of the permit-holders associated with it.
It was a bombshell of a law and it was quickly met with legal battles to prevent it from being enforced.
An Oregon-state judge – Robert Raschio – placed a hold on the gun law from taking effect as did a federal judge as well.
“With implementation, there are serious harms to the public interest as well, which could include individuals being arrested and prosecuted for Class A misdemeanors under what could be found to be an unconstitutional statutory scheme,” Raschio argued.
“And that potential could happen if Ballot Measure 114 is allowed to go into effect without significant judicial scrutiny. And, certainly no one would argue that individual liberty is not a cornerstone of our country. First the people, then the state,” he added.
His ruling was challenged with the Oregon State Supreme Court, but the Oregon High Court upheld Raschio’s ruling, leaving the status of the law in limbo.
This is a case that could easily make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court given the high impact such a law will have on American citizens.
The U.S. Supreme Court has shown, with its new 6-3 conservative majority, more willingness than in years past to stick to a conservative jurisprudence.
In June, the Highest Court in the land ruled that New York state was violating the constitutional rights of Americans to carry arms without the burden to prove to the state the need to do so.
That ruling was fairly massive because it carried with it new precedence for the future of interpretation of the Second Amendment.
Only time will tell if this Oregon law finds its way before the U.S. Supreme Court.
