Democrats got more bad news on the legal front.
The left is gearing up for a brutal defeat.
And that’s because the Supreme Court dropped the hammer on Democrats with one terrifying warning.
In last year’s landmark NYSRPA v. Bruen case the Court ruled that the fundamental right to carry a firearm extended outside the home.
The conservative justices struck down New York’s strict concealed carry permit scheme which rendered it nearly impossible for ordinary residents to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Bruen was a massive defeat for the gun grabbers because the conservatives ruled that any gun control regime must comport with America’s history and tradition of Second Amendment rights.
New York Democrats responded by passing the Orwellian-sounding Concealed Carry Improvement Act which instead restricted where New Yorkers could conceal carry.
The law banned concealed carrying in churches, subways, Times Square, sporting events and entertainment venues.
Gun rights activists immediately sued a district court judge who tossed much of the law.
However, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals stepped in and vacated that order.
The Second Amendment supporters immediately appealed to the Supreme Court.
Justices — however — would not let the pro-gun defendants skip right to the Supreme Court and kicked the case back to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.
And while the justices allowed New York’s gun grab to go into effect, Justice Alito — joined by Justice Thomas — issued a sharp warning to the appeals court that if they did not strike down the Concealed Carry Improvement Act the Supreme Court would do so.
“The New York law at issue in this application presents novel and serious questions under both the First and the Second Amendments. The District Court found, in a thorough opinion, that the applicants were likely to succeed on a number of their claims, and it issued a preliminary injunction as to twelve provisions of the challenged law. With one exception, the Second Circuit issued a stay of the injunction in full, and in doing so did not provide any explanation for its ruling. App. to Emergency Application 2. In parallel cases presenting related issues, the Second Circuit has likewise issued unreasoned summary stay orders, but in those cases it has ordered expedited briefing,” Alito wrote.
“I understand the Court’s denial today to reflect respect for the Second Circuit’s procedures in managing its own docket, rather than expressing any view on the merits of the case. Applicants should not be deterred by today’s order from again seeking relief if the Second Circuit does not, within a reasonable time, provide an explanation for its stay order or expedite consideration of the appeal,” Alito concluded.
The Bruen decision put all sorts of gun grabs in peril.
Gun rights activists are lining up to challenge so-called “assault weapons” and “high-capacity” magazine bans.
But it looks like the first victim will be New York’s attempt to evade the Bruen decision.
