Joe Biden is in deep trouble.
Everyone in the Democrat Party knows it.
And Clarence Thomas just set Joe Biden up for this huge defeat in court.
Clarence Thomas complained for years that the Supreme Court treated the Second Amendment like a “second class right.”
In the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Breun, the Supreme Court expanded the scope of Second Amendment rights by ruling that any gun control had to fit within America’s history and tradition of protecting the right to keep and bear arms, which the Constitution guarantees shall not be infringed.
That ruling allowed conservatives across the country to file lawsuits against gun grabs put in place by Democrat politicians.
Second Amendment activists scored a massive victory in California when Federal Judge Roger Benitez struck down the state’s ban on so-called “assault weapons.”
Benitez ruled that access to firearms are a necessity for the right of self-defense to exist.
The ruling also referenced the 2008 Heller decision where the Supreme Court held that the government can’t ban guns that are in common use.
Benitez noted that millions of Americans own so-called “assault rifles,” which meant that the California ban deprived residents of their full ability to exercise their right to self-defense.
“Guns and ammunition in the hands of criminals, tyrants, and terrorists are dangerous; guns in the hands of law-abiding, responsible citizens are necessary,” Benitez wrote. “To give full life to the core right of self-defense, every law-abiding responsible individual citizen has a constitutionally protected right to keep and bear firearms commonly owned and kept for lawful purposes.”
Benitez compared the use of so-called “assault weapons” to how Americans in the 1800s used knives to protect themselves and their families, writing that this was part of the nation’s history and tradition.
“Like the Bowie Knife, which was commonly carried by citizens and soldiers in the 1800s,” Benitez declared, “‘assault weapons’ are dangerous, but useful.”
California Attorney General Rob Bonta fell back into the typical left-wing wailing and lies about so-called “assault weapons” being “weapons of war.”
“Weapons of war have no place on California’s streets,” Bonta ranted. “This has been state law in California for decades, and we will continue to fight for our authority to keep our citizens safe from firearms that cause mass casualties.”
That is not true at all.
No American soldier carries an AR-15 into war.
An AR-15 is the same as any other rifle or firearm sold in America where one pull of the trigger fires one bullet.
California will certainly appeal this case to the Ninth Circuit.
But that just means whoever loses will take this case to the Supreme Court.
Conservatives have long hoped for a test case to strike down state level gun bans.
And this could be the one that drives a stake through the heart of the Left’s gun control regime.
