There are at least 2 Justices left on the Supreme Court who actually respect the Constitution. Justice Thomas and newly appointed Justice Gorsuch have joined up to condemn the Court’s ruling on Californians right to carry a weapon.
The court declined to hear a case (it requires a majority) regarding the people of San Diego and their right to carry weapons as is stated in the 2nd Amendment. Californian courts ruled against this case and 7 of the nine Supreme Court Justices voted against hearing it.
This is unconstitutional! They live in their protected ivory towers and don’t see the crime and violence that is hurting the communities beneath them. They think that more legal guns cause more crimes…This is false. Illegal guns are involved in crimes! When the citizens can’t protect themselves, the nation becomes a police state.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
“For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,” Thomas wrote after most members of the court declined to hear the California case.
“But the Framers made a clear choice: They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for self-defense. I do not think we should stand by idly while a State denies its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on it,” Thomas said.
Justice Neil Gorsuch, the Court’s newest member, joined Thomas’ statement on the court’s refusal to hear the case, calling the decision by the 9th circuit on Peruta v. San Diego “indefensible.”
