In recent weeks, we have seen an all-out attack from the left on our 2nd Amendment rights. Now, it’s going from bad to worse for law-abiding gun owners. Following a blatant anti-2nd Amendment ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last week, a new ruling was just unleashed by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that has millions of gun-owning Americans outraged.
According to Daily Mail, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 10-4 on Tuesday to uphold Maryland’s assault rifle ban saying that gun owners are not protected under the U.S. Constitution to possess “weapons of war.” This has got to be the most heinous attack on law-abiding gun owners in America in recent history. The details of the liberal court’s unconstitutional ruling are extremely unnerving.
The progressive agenda is being aggressively asserted through our appellate court system. Under this new ruling by the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, millions of Americans who own rifles such as the AR-15 would be in violation of the court’s decision. A total of 45 firearms is on the list of banned “weapons of war.” I think most can agree with me that Neil Gorsuch needs to be confirmed as soon as possible to the SCOTUS so that these out of control lower courts can be kept in check.
Many are wondering if Gorsuch will have trouble being confirmed to our country’s highest court, and I think it’s best put into perspective by one of the left’s own senators from New York, Kirsten Gillibrand. In a recent interview with NY1, she had these dooming words for her fellow progressives:
“I hope we do vote him down. But make no mistake: If we do hold the line with 60 votes, Mitch McConnell will change the rules the next day,” Gillibrand said. “I do not have any hope that he won’t change the rules the minute he doesn’t get his way. So it likely will be 51 votes, regardless, at any given time that a nominee is blocked.”
Gillibrand went on to remark that Gorsuch will end up on the high court regardless of whatever stunts that her party pulls, and conservatives all over the country cannot wait for that to happen. Gorsuch’s addition to the SCOTUS will be pivotal in cases like this, where a lower appellate court decides that it is going to force law-abiding American gun owners to live under the tyranny of a judicial system gone awry.
One of the liberal judges in favor of upholding Maryland’s unconstitutional firearms ban is Judge Robert King, who wrote in court documents, “Put simply, we have no power to extend Second Amendment protection to the weapons of war.” Men like King are the problem with America’s judicial crazy train. These judges think that being appointed to uphold the laws of our country gives them the right to overreach and twist our laws against us.
In a blistering dissent, Judge William Traxler wrote that the majority “has gone to greater lengths than any other court to eviscerate the constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms.” Traxler has his head screwed on properly, and we need more men like him in the judicial branch of our government.
I cannot stress enough the importance of this case and the damage done by the ruling which came out of it. Please contact your senators and make sure they hear your urgent demands for Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed as our next SCOTUS Justice. If you value your 2nd Amendment rights, please make sure this information is spread this far and wide. The more people who raise their voices against it, demanding that those who work for us actually represent our wishes, the better.
