Supreme Court set to hear first 2nd Amendment case in a decade: Here’s what’s at stake
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

A gun rights case is on the U.S. Supreme Court’s docket for this fall, and it’ll be the first in almost a decade on the topic of the Second Amendment. More specifically, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. The City of New York will address the transportation of firearms in New York City, a case that could ultimately have implications for the rest of the country.

"...bias of the court..."?
As long as the court is biased towards the Constitution's clear and plain language over the convoluted and restricted (infringing) language of Congress, States, Cities, and other such law-writing bodies, isn't that a good thing?

After all, isn't the Constitution supposed to be the supreme law of the land?

“The point of our brief is that it’s bringing home the real-world impact of gun violence on the young people whose stories we’re telling,” said Ira Feinberg, a partner at the firm, “and that’s a perspective that we wanted to make sure the court has.”

Feinbert et al are arguing for a political decision. Their problem is that this is a constitutional question, not a political one.

It is not within the purview of the SCOTUS to rule on political questions, only on matters of law and the Constitution.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
