Prohibitionists Resort to Rants, Libel, and Lies over Supreme Court Gun Ruling

Now there’s a guy who knows a thing or two about being an extremist. (Sen. Chuck Schumer/Facebook)

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “NY Gov. Hochul Loses Her Mind Over SCOTUS Ruling Striking Down Conceal Carry Law,” Mary Chastain of Legal Insurrection notes following Thursday’s 6-3 decision in favor of carrying handguns outside the home in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. “Your tears are delicious, Hochul.”

Some may object to overt gloating, but I’m not one of them. Oath-breaking tyrant wannabes presume to dictate our rights to us and send hither swarms of state enforcers to harass us (and worse) when we stand up, defy their edicts, and claim our birthrights. And their setback has been done peaceably using a remarkable system bequeathed to Posterity by the Founders, sending some triggered collectivists into a rage-fille hysteria rivaling the tantrum at the end of Mel Gibson’s “Passion” movie.

More tempered and informed legal minds in the Second Amendment community are analyzing the opinion of the court, the concurrences, and the dissent. They’ll do a better job of explaining the issues and implications than I could hope to on things like requirements to prove cause, scrutiny, the applicability of earlier laws, “shall issue” permits, and what this could mean for “red flag laws” and the like. Plenty of qualified commentators are and will be writing about that, and I have no interest in trying to anticipate or reword their work here.

Instead, let’s take a moment to look at the reactions of those impervious to reasoning because they have an agenda that never was concerned with the truth. Let’s look at how the antis are reacting to the decision on social media.

What better place to start than David Hogg’s Twitter feed?

“Just as Republicans, gun owners and Democrats are coming together to demand action on gun safety- SCOTUS just ruled for the opposite and rolled back +200 years of jurisprudence. Americans want domestic tranquility and a well regulated militia not a SCOTUS bought by the NRA,” the noted legal scholar grouses (and simultaneously libels). “Trump packed the court and if we don’t do something it’s going to destroy our country and what little is left of our constitution in the process.”

“SCOTUS just issued their opinion in NYSRPA v Bruen and they got it wrong,” Shannon Watts, digging deep into her bottomless reservoir of accomplished legal acumen declares. “As our gun violence crisis gets even worse, SCOTUS has caved to the gun lobby’s extreme agenda and will make it harder for some states and cities to protect public safety.”

As an aside, if she’s blocked you as she has me, you can still access her rantings via an incognito window.

“As the extremist Roberts Court strikes down gun-safety measures—it’s urgent for us to act at every level of government,” Sen. Chuck Schumer, a guy who knows a thing or two about being an extremist brays. “Today, we’ll finally take steps to loosen the gun lobby’s grip and pass a law that’ll save lives.”

No, it won’t, and you’d think Republican lemmings marching off that cliff would realize that, and also realize if they demoralize their base, blow the presumptive “red wave” and don’t unseat enough Democrats, Schumer’s just the guy to show us what real “court-packing” looks like.

“This is another devastating setback in our fight against gun violence and it only underscores the need for bolder gun reforms on the national level. Because of this ruling, we’re now back to where we were in 1910, but it doesn’t have to remain this way,” disgraced former New York Governor Andrew Cuomo lies.

Yes, lies. “Back to where we were in 1910”? Really?

Neat! So we can have unregistered new machine guns again, buy guns by mail, forget the stupid 4473s and NICS checks, hell, come to think of it we can get rid of all those anti-gun Democrat women in Congress because they couldn’t even vote until 1920… I bring that last part up because Cuomo’s the one in the doghouse over multiple sexual harassment allegations.

We could go on, but the pattern will be the same. The violence monopolists will try to minimize the court’s decision, and to do that they’ll “bear false witness” like Hogg saying NRA bought the judges, they’ll offer false authority like Watts posturing that hers are the superior legal qualifications, they’ll call names like Schumer branding the justices “extremists,” and they’ll flat-out lie, like Gropey.

Find your “favorite” gun-grabber and see which tactic(s) they favor.

Given that, there’s nothing wrong with celebrating the moment, and giving in to a Nelson Muntz moment at the expense of incompetents, scoundrels, tyrants, and liars – and their strident cult followers – is forgivable (and kind of fun).

When it comes to gun rights, there are free states and there are communist states.
GUN VIOLENCE IS THE SAME COAST TO COAST!
Mostly if not almost ALL committed by inner city minority gangs and criminals WITH ILLEGAL GUNS!
Legal concealed carriers are a problem NOWHERE!
So their concerns have no basis in reality.
Then again NOTHING in the agenda of the democrat party has any basis in reality.

Truth to ‘them’ is a fictional story they tell with great emotion and angst so as to attract their Moloch worshipping, low hanging fruity followers. The old adage is so very true, ‘how can one tell when a hoplophobic prog is lying? when their lips are moving.’

I you wait until you have a “valid need” to carry a gun, you’re too late. So, if Schumer thinks that’s “common sense gun safety”, he has NO “common sense” AND, he doesn’t have a clue what “gun safety” really means. Especially after firing up his idiot supporters with rhetoric like “you have unleashed the whirlwind and you will pay the price”. He’s either a total moron or, he’s an evil criminal trying to subvert the Constitution and turn America into his idea of a “socialist utopia”.

Remember that cocky schemer is a100% satan worshipping DEMONcrat, and he will lie through his teeth to get what he wants, the guy has made no bones about it he wants and demands that every person turn their guns in as he put it only the government can safely control them. Yeah any one who thinks that cocky schemer is a bright guy think again that guy is a burned out bulb his IQ is less than his shoe size, and all those that are screaming that there are going to even more gun related deaths now do not know… Read more »

Schooooomah, just because a law has been on the books for 100 years doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a good law.

Happy to see it struck down! The tyrants’ grip on us commoners is loosening and they can’t stand it…

Trump packed the court, eh?

Get ready, they’re prepping for the ol’ “Nuh-uh, you started it” approach.

Shall Issue is now the law of the land. And they don’t like it. Too bad! That’s democracy.

Mystic Wolf

Thats how a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC WORKS, we have never had a democracy in this country, the DEMONcrats keep saying that in hopes they can make it true. A democracy is where mob rules and there is a dictator that runs the country.

What I’ve learned about the laws and court decisions it’s who are going to enforce them? When the left controls the Attorney Generals and District Attorneys there are no neutral entities, but they are in lockstep with whichever party is in charge.
When Newsom was mayor of San Francisco, he broke the law regarding state law prop 8, his city’s attorney was Kamala Harris who did nothing to keep him accountable. And so it goes, laws to enforce apply only to those who would do so.

True enough when we consider that none of the protesters outside of the Justice’s homes have been removed. Not to mention the insurrection when Trump was sworn in as POTUS, the Hillary/Obama/Deep state coup, and a riot in DC that was more like an insurrection than Jan 06.

After the drafts of the proposed Constitution of the United States was circulated, several of the former colonies basically said, “We will not ratify that unless certain guarantees are made that some of our newly restored rights are not once again trampled by a government run amok.” Read the preamble to the Bill of Rights. The first 10 amendments to the new Constitution are those guarantees. “THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and… Read more »

would be nice if scotus would put that in front of a ruling and strike down all rules made by government agencies that have effect of law

Good comment. You might like “The Quartet” by J.J. Ellis.

Mystic Wolf

Good bit of history there, remember that there are those today that are screaming for a CONVENTION OF THE STATES today and if that happens we will loose everything the FOUNDING FATHERS put in writing, the satan worshipping DEMONcrats will rewrite and then remove everything they don’t like, which means there goes the bill of rights and everything else.

Laddyboy

I DISAGREE! The TOPICS of a Convention of States would be NARROWLY LIMITED and STRICTLY CONTROLLED by Americans’ Appointed REPRESENTATIVES. Also, a MAJORITY of STATES would HAVE TO AGREE to the agreed upon AMENDMENTS.

dont know what you have been drinking , but these clown have already started trying to change the meaning of a right to mean privilege so there is no crooked shit they wont do

NOTHING in the Constitution LIMITS a COS or backs ANY of your clams. Who do you think appoints the delegates for God’s sake? The same RINOs who run the states. Delusional blowhard neo”con” Mark Levin trusts today’s treasonous politicians with the Constitution. It’s amazing how many folks he’s suckered into pushing it.

Respectfully, the last time that there was a convention of the states, the representatives threw out the entire government creating document rather than amending it as they were directed to do.
Another convention of states could easily through out the Second Amendment, the entire Bill of Rights or even the entire Constitution.
Do we trust today’s politicians to do as directed? Dare we put the power to change everything in their hands?

Larry

Come on, Schumer, grow some balls and threaten another Supreme Court Justice!

…or incite a riot, err insurrection
