Never in our history has the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) played a more vital role in protecting America’s Bill of Rights. With Joe Biden in the White House, America’s Constitution is merely another impediment to hurdle over. His record setting executive orders have sought to bypass the legislative process and usurp our founding documents, and the due processes therein.
In all the years of the Presidency, never has one man issued so many executive orders, proclamations, declarations, and decrees during their first two years on the job. As a matter of fact, Joe Biden has issued more than the last four presidents combined. In what’s becoming an autocratic process from the White House, we have seen job killing executive orders, congressional bypassing proclamations and declarations; and he now has his sights on dismembering the Second Amendment.
In a recent speech he called on congress “to enact common sense gun law reforms”, despite state constitutional protections. He followed those comments up by saying “This administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed the call to act.” Joe Biden and the progressives intend on deploying the same unconstitutional sidestepping tactics as they have on the existing 85 executive orders, 64 presidential memoranda and 210 proclamations already issued since he took office.
The second amendment to the constitution was clear and concise when crafted, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Our founders came from tyranny and understood the need for its citizenry to protect themselves from all enemies foreign and domestic. The framers intentionally eliminated ambiguity in the language, as the recent Supreme Court ruling has shown. Over the last century, Supreme Court rulings on the matter have been consistent in validating the second amendments language.
In June of 2008, the Supreme Court issued its first decision since 1939 reaffirming the rights of a citizen to bear arms. District of Columbia v. Heller was a death blow to the anti-gun lobby because it clarified and codified every component of a citizen’s right to legal gun ownership. The progressives have been plotting to undermine this ruling for the last 13 years.
Democrat led cities like Chicago, New York, Baltimore and even the District of Columbia, to name a few, have the most restrictive gun laws in the nation, yet they lead the nation in gun violence. It seems the bad guys do not have a problem finding guns. As a matter of fact, these cities lead in most every violent crime category that is tracked by the justice department. For the first time in over half a century, we have seen year after year, record setting increases, as the innocent victims continue to pile up on their watch.
We are fortunate for now that a majority on the Supreme Court are constitutionalists. The court should never be in the business of legislating from the bench. Their role is clear, they are the final arbiter in the judiciary process, and the legal branch of constitutional oversight. Their role is to interpret the constitution, not to pick and choose which parts it agrees with.
Despite death threats, picketing and parading of their homes and deliberate intimidation under threat, I applaud the six justices that understood their oath before God and the American people. Proving once again that the mob is no match for, we the people.
Thank you and God bless America
