Judge Just Smashed Liberals’ Dreams With Huge Ruling

Published on

The Second Amendment is gaining nationwide and Supreme Court consideration.

In June, the Supreme Court of the United States invalidated a New York concealed carry legislation.

Unnamed 18- and 20-year-olds, along with the Firearms Policy Coalition, filed a lawsuit in Texas in November 2017.

In this case, a Texas judge selected by former President Donald Trump has already handed a big win for Second Amendment advocates.

Fox News reported that U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman ruled as illegal a state statute prohibiting anybody under 21 from carrying a weapon.

“Based on the Second Amendment’s text, as informed by Founding-Era history and tradition, the Court concludes that the Second Amendment protects against this prohibition.” The judge stated in his Thursday ruling. “Texas’s statutory scheme must therefore be enjoined to the extent that law-abiding 18-to-20-year-olds are prohibited from applying for a license to carry a handgun.”

“To start, the Second Amendment does not mention any sort of age restriction,” he stated. “This absence is notable—when the Framers meant to impose age restrictions, they did so expressly.”

According to experts, the significance of the verdict lies in the likelihood that similarly restrictive concealed carry regulations, which are mostly restricted to blue states, would also be successfully challenged.

MPR stated, “This decision is a big deal.”

“Previously, the court had only said that the Constitution protected the ability to have a gun inside the home for self-defense.

In that decision, which came down in 2008, the justices didn’t rule on how guns carried outside the home could be regulated.

It took almost 15 years for the justices to come back to that question, but now they have.”

The Second Amendment “protect[s] an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home,” wrote Justice Clarence Thomas in the majority opinion for Thursday’s ruling.

As a result, FiveThirtyEight said, “which required people who wanted a license to carry a concealed handgun in public to show they have a good reason, are no longer allowed.”

“Thomas’s opinion states regulations need to be historically consistent with the Second Amendment,” FiveThirtyEight’s analysis noted.

“That means when they look at a modern gun regulation, judges will have to figure out if another, reasonably similar law was passed earlier in the country’s history.

Previously, courts had also considered whether a regulation could be justified for other reasons, but that second layer of consideration is no longer allowed,” the site continued.

The analysis goes on to predict a “flood” of new litigation in states with similarly restrictively concealed carry laws.

In addition to this major ruling, the SCOTUS has spoken out even more vividly, likely inviting new challenges in some states.

Western Journal reports:

“The Supreme Court said Thursday that gun cases involving restrictions in Hawaii, California, New Jersey and Maryland deserve a new look following its major decision in a gun case last week.

In light of last week’s ruling — which said that Americans have a right to carry a gun outside the home — lower courts should take another look at several cases that had been awaiting action by the high court, the court said.

Those cases include ones about high-capacity magazines, an assault weapons ban and a state law that limits who can carry a gun outside the home,” the outlet reported, noting that by sending the cases back to lower courts, these laws will now get a second look under the new standard applied in Thomas’ majority decision.

One of the cases the justices sent back to a lower court Thursday involved a Hawaii statute similar to New York’s.

In that case, a panel of 11 judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in 2021 that the right to “keep and bear arms” in the Constitution’s Second Amendment “does not guarantee an unfettered, general right to openly carry arms in public for individual self-defense.”

But the high court said in its latest gun case that the Constitution protects “an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.” A lower court will now have to revisit the Hawaii ruling.”

Ammunition is of concern as well.

SCOTUS also instructed federal appeals courts to take a new look at laws in California and New Jersey that put limits on the number of rounds a magazine can hold, Conservative Brief reports.

In 2018, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed Democrat-passed legislation that limits magazines to 10 rounds of ammunition rather than the 15-round limit that had been in place since 1990, and in California, a statute bans all magazines that can hold more than 10 rounds; a panel of 11 judges on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year ruled 7-4 to uphold the ban.

Also, the justices remanded another case from Maryland back to an appeals court that challenged that state’s ban on 45 types of so-called “assault” weapons.
