Tuesday was not a good day for the nation’s anti-gun ownership lobby, politicians and their supporters. The usually liberal-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the nation’s gunowners with a decision that struck down a lower court’s ruling during the Obama administration.
Considered the most radically left federal court in the nation, the Ninth Circuit shocked the Democrats and their complicit news media allies by endorsing the right of individuals to carry firearms in public. The ruling on Tuesday struck down a lower court’s ruling against the Second Amendment arguing that the U.S. Constitution only protects gun rights in the homes of the citizens.
“Analyzing the text of the Second Amendment and reviewing the relevant history, including founding-era treatises and nineteenth century case law, the panel stated that it was unpersuaded by the county’s and the state’s argument that the Second Amendment only has force within the home,” the ruling states.
The ruling was made by two of a three-judge panel who overturned a lower court’s. The two judges ruling for the plaintiffs were both appointed by Republican presidents and they appeared to wholeheartedly ruled against a lower court’s decision upholding the restriction.
Circuit Court Judge Diarmuid O’Scannlain wrote in his opinion that “for better or for worse… the Second Amendment of the Constitution does [indeed] protect the right to carry a firearm in public for self-defense.”
Meanwhile in a lone dissent, Judge Richard Clifton said states have “long allowed for extensive regulations of and limitations on the public carry of firearms,” he noted.
At a time when thousands of unknown foreigners are entering the United States via porous borders unhindered by greedy politicians who keep on inviting thousands of refugees to settle in this country, “this is not the time to push for stricter gun laws,” said former police officer Iris Aquino.
“Unfortunately, we currently have Democratic Party politicians and leaders who aren’t concerned with the health and safety of American citizens, but will release thousands of criminals from prisons early,” she added. “And then they tell these criminal aliens to harass American citizens — who believe in law and order, national sovereignty, and being left alone — just because they voted for and support President Trump.”
More and more law enforcement officers are in agreement with the late John Snyder, who served as a firearms policy expert for a number of police groups including the National Association of Chiefs of Police and the American Federation of Police. Snyder believed that the election of Trump as POTUS would lead to anarchy and leftist violence.
“Gun rights folks have been blasting gun free zones for years,” Snyder had said. “The mass shootings at the Umpqua Community College in Oregon [proves] how nuts gun free zones really are. The anti-gun policy in Oregon prevented any lawful armed citizen from stopping the killing. One teacher with one gun could have cut the carnage.”
