Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- Supremes:

It is truly said:

“Where you stand depends on where you sit!”

Last week our Supreme Court cynically declined to hear the Peruta V CA Case. Justices Thomas and Gorsuch magnificently dissented (Peruta case is on Page 30)!

I can’t put it more eloquently:

“The Constitution does not rank certain rights above others, and I do not think this Court should impose such a hierarchy by selectively enforcing its preferred rights. Second Amendment rights are no less protected by our Constitution than other rights enumerated in that document.

The Court has not heard argument in a Second Amendment case in over seven years—since March 2, 2010, in McDonald v Chicago. Since that time, we have heard argument in, for example, roughly 35 cases where the question presented turned on the meaning of the First Amendment and 25 cases that turned on the meaning of the Fourth Amendment. This discrepancy is inexcusable, especially given how much less developed our jurisprudence is with respect to the Second Amendment as compared to the First and Fourth Amendments.

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. 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.

I respectfully dissent.”

Thomas and Gorsuch are genuine heroes!

… and they will have their day!

Before DJT’s first term ends, Justice Thomas will be writing the MAJORITY ruling in a Second Amendment Case.

In the interim, Californians are on their own. Their governor, state legislature, and at least some of the Supremes consider them expendable.

No “marbled halls” protect them, nor for that matter, the rest of us!

I don’t think a remedy for the abuse Sacramento has heaped upon California’s residents will wait for another SCOTUS appointment. We’re out of time. I’m sure most here are aware of Moonbeam’s recent trip to China, supposedly to reassure them that California, along with six other states, will honor the Paris Agreement, an action that is illegal. That’s bull. He was there with hat in hand, asking them to buy the state’s debts and provide the material aid needed to resist the Trump administration. The majority of California’s legislature as well as the Governor may be guilty of treason. That… Read more »

Kalifornia gun owners have been on their own since the February 1989 declaration of the Southern California NRA Field Rep, who stated, “We’re the National Rifle Association…you boys can handle this local matter.” A few days later, on March 2, 1989, the City Council in Santa Monica passed one of the first “Assault Weapon Bans.” Nothing really has changed in the last 28+ years.

Public dissent is inaction!!! We THE PEOPLE deserve action. Not this B.S. I respectfully dissent. Get in there and your damn jobs!!! You pussy footin judges

Gregory Romeu

It’s the spineless, “Purdy footin” citizens of California that are causing the problems by not yanking these oath-breaking officials out of office!
Maybe the Californians just like being a bunch of submissive little bitches?

I’m not certain if the majority of the Court, and for that fact, the majority of the citizens of the U.S. understand that the entire Constitution rests on the Second Amendment. Without the Second Amendment, the Constitution would have ceased to exist years ago and the United States would have been under the heel of a despotic government and our Unalienable Rights would have been only those provided by the government. 241 Years ago, a small band of men set us on an uncharted course codifying ideals that others had yearned for over the centuries. Today those ideals are being… Read more »

Yeah, ok hero… Take your stance on, “freedom and liberty” and drive down the street without wearing your seat belt!

I can see that you have no clue about The Constitution and how it’s supposed to work. The Constitution is supposed to limit what powers the government does, not the other way around. It is because of people like you, with caustic, ignorant remarks, that the central government has usurped powers that do not belong to it. At this point, there are only two ways out of our predicament and the favored way is the Constitutional Article V Convention of States which allow the States to exercise the People’s control over the behemoth that is the bureaucracy of Washington, DC.… Read more »

Has YOU bothered to read your state’s constitution, you would have discovered that each individual has the power to; have investigated by grand jury and to indict, prosecute, fine, incarcerate and even remove from office, ANY OFFICIAL whether elected or appointed that violates their OATH of OFFICE.

But then again, that’s only for those citizens that disply backbone, common sense and fortitude to do their duty as a citizen in maintaining their government officials at ALL LEVELS of government.

This is up to and even including your local dog catcher of need be.

Gregory Romeu

First off, it is not; “It is because of people like you, with caustic, ignorant remarks, that the central government has usurped powers that do not belong to it.” It is because,of beauracrts such as yourself that can’t or choose not to step up to the plate and start the fight on your own, rather calling for the over bloated 50 states, (multiplying your stalwarts by the thousands) to get together to fight your battles for you rather than you begin the process by removing them one at a time setting alarming Pace across the country putting all the rest… Read more »

First of all, I have read the Colorado State Constitution and secondly, I have been working to rectify our problems at the local level which are corrupt officials and politicians who keep getting themselves elected to office. Because I live in the county, I cannot overtly impact city elections although I can contribute time and money to particular candidates. The problem that we have right now is the population is about 4.5 million people and only 1.5 million live outside the Denver-Boulder-Ft Collins Triangle while we have a large number of Kommifornians moving into the state demanding the same services… Read more »
