SCOTUS Takes Another Crack at the 2nd Amendment – They Just Overturned 4 Major Appeals Court Rulings

What’s Happening:

Last month, the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of Americans’ right to conceal carry a firearm. The decision was a powerful blow to the left’s ongoing attempts to restrict the Second Amendment.

But the Supreme Court wasn’t finished. They just issued another order, which will send four states spinning.

From The Epoch Times:

The Supreme Court followed up its June 23 landmark ruling that for the first time recognized a constitutional right to carry firearms in public for self-defense, by issuing a series of rulings June 30 reversing federal appeals court decisions that upheld gun restrictions in California, New Jersey, Maryland, and Hawaii…

In the new orders, the Supreme Court summarily disposed of the four pending cases, simultaneously granting appellants’ petitions seeking review while skipping over the oral argument phase. Some lawyers call this process GVR, standing for grant, vacate, and remand.

The Supreme Court overruled appeals cases that had upheld strict gun laws in four states. The order will grant petitioners the chance to get new rulings on their cases.

And, in light of the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold an Americans’ right to conceal carry, it is very likely these decisions will be in gun owners’ favor.

In the states mentioned, California, New Jersey, Maryland, and Hawaii, Americans must put up with significant hurdles to purchase or own a firearm.

In Hawaii, the laws are so strict, that you need a license just to use a firearm at a gun range. Americans aren’t allowed to take their guns from their homes. Conceal carry is essentially forbidden.

The same is true of the other states. Heavy gun control laws make it nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens to properly exercise their Second Amendment rights.

But this move by the Supreme Court is forcing a challenge against these gun laws. This will send major repercussions throughout the gun control movement.

Democrats will have a harder time passing new, strict gun laws, when the Supreme Court is going after existing ones.

Gun owners will have much more success in court challenging gun laws, thanks to the decisions of the highest court in the land.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Supreme Court ordered four states to revisit cases over gun laws.
  • The case must be reviewed, in light of the court’s recent decision.
  • The states in question have extremely strict gun control laws.
