A Liberal Supreme Court Ruling will make liberals EXPLODE! Good news for gun owners.
On 6-26-2015, as you know, five liberal justices on the SCOTUS redefined what marriage is in America and also found the time to violate the concept of federalism. They decided that an individual’s behavioral choice was grounds to create a new “right” in the U.S. Constitution. Now of course there are those of you who are now somewhat despondent, but just know that in every storm there is a rainbow — Since now the SCOTUS has determined it can bequeath a right to marriage across all 50 states, there is an interesting point to be made.
As reported by BearingArms.com, “If you’re following any of the various media outlets this morning, you’re probably aware that the U.S. Supreme Court has just extended gay marriage to all 50 states. The Supreme Court ruled Friday, 6-26-2015 that same-sex couples have a ‘right’ to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states. Gay and lesbian couples already can marry in 36 states and the District of Columbia. The court’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states, in the South and Midwest, will have to stop enforcing their bans on same-sex marriage. The outcome is the culmination of two decades of Supreme Court litigation over marriage, and gay rights generally.”
The Court used Section 1 of the Fourteen Amendment to justify its argument, which reads: Amendment XIV Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law, which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Now here is the kicker, as the writer articulately brings to light: “By using the Constitution in such a manner, the Court argues that the Due Process Clause extends “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy” accepted in a majority of states across the state lines of a handful of states that still banned the practice. For gun owners, the vast majority of states are “shall issue” on the matter of issuing concealed carry permits, and enjoy reciprocity with a large number of other states. My North Carolina concealed carry permit, for example, was recognized yesterday as being valid in 36 states, which just so happened to be the number of states in which gay marriage was legal yesterday. But 14 states did not recognize my concealed carry permit yesterday. Today, they MUST, due to this Supreme Court ruling!
Using the same “due process clause” argument as the Supreme Court just applied to gay marriage, my concealed carry permit MUST now be recognized as valid in all 50 states AND the District of Columbia!
Yes folks, there is a standing right called the Second Amendment, which grants the right to keep and bear arms, and that specifically granted right shall not be infringed. So, the SCOTUS does not need to have a court case and prolonged legal, judicial activism — that right exists.
So, since I have moved from Florida to Texas, my concealed weapons permit is not only transferrable here, but all across the country now, in all fifty states — or fifty-seven if you are President Obama….. Thanks to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender,(LGBT) community for making it very clear, my constitutionally declared right MUST be recognized in every state! Not only is it my right to keep and bear my arms (weapons) but that “personal choice is central to my individual dignity and autonomy” — the protection of the unalienable rights granted to me by the Creator, the first of which is life. THIS is GREAT, I just cannot wait to hear the liberal progressive socialist anti-gun argument against this premise — which is now established!
NOTE: The Supreme Court started to stray from their sworn duty to follow the Constitution in the 1960s and instead morphed into two factions, Liberal and Conservative, which is NOT how our Founders set it up. The Liberals in this case, in their zeal to pander to a vocal minority group, over looked the side effect this would have across the board dealing with all other licenses…..GOOD! Now it is the law of the land!
Now I suppose someone will say that the words/quotes of Franklin, Mason, Jefferson, and Washington are invalid because of some lame excuse like, well you know, they owned slaves….. But the point is simple and easy to comprehend. If the SCOTUS could create a ‘right’ that was truly non-existent in the Constitution using the 14th Amendment, then it seems reasonable and logical to use the same Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment and equal protection to extend the concealed carry right to ALL 50 states.
So here is the call to action: since we are coming up on our 239th Independence Day celebration, let’s all call the White House and inform them that we CCL owners are going to be traveling for the Independence Day holiday and we plan on carrying our weapons wherever the heck we please. And if anyone decides to stop an American citizen and challenge his or her Second Amendment right, then let’s discuss the violation of federalism by the SCOTUS mandating same-sex marriage. As a matter of fact, we expect the ATF to start issuing NATIONAL CCL cards to all of us who are current holders of valid CCLs — heck, we know the DHS is planning on printing ID cards for illegal immigrants!
Therefore, celebrate your 4th of July knowing that the SCOTUS just solidified our right to keep and bear arms — and that no state has the “right” to infringe upon our Second Amendment right. If the violation of federalism works ok for LGBTs — then it works well for gun owners!
Note: This is a VERY interesting analysis! Since states issue all kinds of licenses and permits, e.g., a license to practice law or medicine, or whatever, will this now mean every state must now recognize every license from all other states, without the person having to sit for a licensing exam in those other states? After all, the ability to earn a living in one’s chosen field is a “personal choice central to their individual dignity and autonomy” as the liberal Supreme Court faction has just decided, and made the law of the land, correct? The answer is YES!
