The Ebb and Flow Of Rights

From Open Source Defense:

That might seem foreseeable. Because sure, backlashes are a thing, you’d expect resistance to faithfully implementing Bruen. What’s less predictable is Bruen would be an active step backwards for gun carriers in some states. The law got better but the reality got worse.

Weird. How does that happen?

The Fight Against Gun Bans Heats Up

From Bearing Arms:

This is one of four cases that the Supreme Court sent back to lower courts after issuing its decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, and the only one of the four that deals with a ban on so-called assault weapons. The Fourth Circuit maintains that the state’s ban is perfectly in line with the Constitution because, in the court’s view, AR-15s and other semi-automatic long guns are “like” machine guns, and therefore aren’t protected by the Second Amendment.

NYT Shocked Public Defenders Support Second Amendment

From Reason:

A group of public defense lawyer organizations recently joined forces with Second Amendment advocates to urge the U.S. Supreme Court to invalidate a New York gun control scheme. Now that the scheme has been successfully overturned in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, which held that the Second Amendment includes the right “to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home,” public defenders have begun citing the Court’s ruling to protect the rights of their clients.

This state of affairs has left some New York Times journalists scratching their heads in surprise. As a recent Times headline put it: “Unlikely Fans of Supreme Court Ruling on Guns: Public Defenders.” The accompanying article describes the Black Attorneys of Legal Aid, the Bronx Defenders, and other groups as “unexpected” allies of the gun rights movement.

What Will Be The Next Gun Law Struck Down

From The Federalist:

The Supreme Court’s landmark decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen did a lot more than just strike down New York state’s concealed carry law. It changed the legal landscape for gun laws across the country. With that change, many gun control laws are now on life support. But the real question is — which ones are doomed?

Bruen Could Be The Beginning of Striking Down Gun Laws

From The Truth About Guns:

In winning this case in front of SCOTUS, “may issue” laws — laws under which states and municipalities have entirely subjective rules under which they may or may not issue concealed carry permits — have been deemed unconstitutional. This opens up the door for going after unfair, subjective, and otherwise not equally-applied gun control laws all across the country.

The Bruen Case Is Exposing The Left’s Racism

From The LA Times:

But the governor and lawmakers could fail in their efforts, and the Supreme Court’s ruling could stand. And then, California could be forced to confront a reality that has long made many self-proclaimed liberals uncomfortable: Black people — potentially a lot of us — legally carrying guns in public.

Gun Banners Want Power

From The Federalist:

Why do Democrats despise the Second Amendment so much that they want to effectively banish a branch of the government over it? Because it strips them of their ability to control everything and accumulate power.

The Bruen Decision Was Just The Beginning

From The Truth About Guns:

There are no longer tiered levels of examination or scrutiny. If the law in question materially limits the right to keep and bear arms, then, with remarkably few exceptions, under Bruen the law will be an infringement on Second Amendment rights.

Restitution Should Be A Remedy For Unconstitutional Prosecutions

From The Truth About Guns:

An individual should not be punished for noncompliance with an unconstitutional law. If they were unjustly punished, then they deserve restitution. So far, only a few people have applied for restitution in DC. There is a larger class action lawsuit that needs to be filed against the district.
