    CA Newspaper: Our State's Gun Control Laws Are In Jeopardy

    CA Newspaper: Our State's Gun Control Laws Are In Jeopardy

    A couple weeks ago the Supreme Court made a shocking (but welcomed) announcement: the high court would be hearing the first gun case in a decade. The last time the Supreme Court heard a gun-related case was back in 2008 when they ruled "the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the homeĒ in the landmark Heller decision.

    What's interesting is the San Francisco Chronicle, a rather liberal newspaper in California, published an editorial admitting that the state's gun control laws may be in danger. While the Supreme Court was reluctant to hear Second Amendment-related cases, the Court now has more conservative justices. Now that Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are on the Court, gun rights activists are expecting landslide victories that can and will protect the right to keep and bear arms for years to come.

    California may be the toughest gun control state in the country with a political lineup ready to go even further. The high court, which sensed it didnít have the votes for a change-making decision until the arrival of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is ready to go the other way.

    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,

    I don't trust Roberts.

    Progressivism, ideas so good, they have to be mandatory

    The article was wrong. Heller was not the last SCOTUS 2nd Amendment case. McDonald v. Chicago was the last in 2010. Same issue as Heller, except Heller applied to Washington DC, and McDonald to the states.
