Supreme Court Takes Up First Second Amendment Case in Ten Years

A year or two ago, there were media reports that sources said that the conservative justices were intentionally dodging all second amendment cases.

The reason? Chief Justice Roberts. They were pretty sure that Bush's Present to Conservatives would vote against the second amendment, and they didn't want to let this sad cuck closet-masturbator invent new precedent.

Maybe the court now senses that they have five conservative votes.

Roberts is simply a liberal. Straight up. Not a swing vote. A liberal.

Thanks Bush! Thanks, Federalist Society!

The case being taken up is whether people have a fundamental right to carry weapons outside their home, and whether the state can "regulate" that right into non-existence.

The Court decided to take up the case New York State Rifle et. al. v. Corlett, focusing on the question of "Whether the State’s denial of petitioners' applications for concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment."

Robert Nash and Brandon Koch applied for licenses to carry firearms outside their homes in New York, SCOTUS blog reported. The licensing officer denied their requests after determining that, under New York law, they had "failed to show 'proper cause' to carry a firearm in public for the purpose of self-defense, because [they] did not demonstrate a special need for self-defense that distinguished them from the general public."

The state wants to have very stringent conditions for carrying a gun, such as being a Democrat celebrity, and deny them to all people who don't fit that category.

Hopefully the Court will rule that people have a right to carry a gun, and the state cannot set up "conditions" that essentially render this right a nullity.
