Senate Republicans are out of their f*cking minds if they try and pass a gun control deal today after this Supreme Court victory for the 2A.

Governor Kathy Hochul, reacting to the 2A ruling, says "we can have restrictions on speech. You can't yell fire in a crowded theater." That line comes from another SCOTUS case that justified putting anti-war activists in prison and the precedent was overturned over 50 years ago. @greg_price11's photo on The 2A

Justice Thomas: "The exercise of other constitutional rights does not require individuals to demonstrate to government officers some special need. The 2A right to carry arms in public for self defense is no different." @greg_price11's photo on The 2A

J. Thomas writing majority in gun case - says the 2A is not a "second-class right" and should be treated like all other Constitutional rights. #SCOTUS file:///C:/Users/bream/AppData/Local/Microsoft/Windows/INetCache/Content.Outlook/0GV4P57Z/20-843.pdf

Hey @DanCrenshawTX, a senator from your state, @JohnCornyn, voted to infringe on the 2A rights of millions of Americans. You have an opinion (usually a dumb, America Last one) on everything. Why are you silent on this? Why won’t you call John Cornyn out?

Today's SCOTUS decision is a big win for law abiding Americans who want to exercise their constitutional right to self defense. This is why we need to pass my amendment to ensure every state in the nation honors the #2A through concealed carry reciprocity.

"We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need. That is not how the 1A works... not how the 6A works... And it is not how the 2A works when it comes to public carry for self defense." https://t.co/lHghkTCcfv

#SCOTUS stood up for the #2A by striking down the NY law & affirming "Shall Issue" as the standard for carry permits. https://t.co/0Cb28sEKM6 Gonna take my new Kimber Micro Carry to the range in honor. https://t.co/YYRnu3gcVE

@RepBoebert Did you know in 1791 when the Founders ratified the 2A, a well regulated militia was restricted to 1 musket, 2 spare flints and 24 bullets? They had to register and at anytime the gov could enter their home, take away their weapon and remove them from the rolls.

So much IGNORANCE around the #2A because the people are LIED TO night & day by con/conservatives. The Feds have NO AUTHORITY to regulate the PEOPLES arms. NONE. The SCOTUS said exactly that in the 19th century. Then TURNED COMMIE in the 20th. Go read it. https://t.co/5DZSa2613I

🧵 The US Supreme Court just issued an amazingly strong 2A opinion authored by Justice Thomas; which upholds the 2A as not “a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” Thomas went even further and said…. (1/)

The "bear arms" part of the 2A is what establishes the right to carry. state and local governments have been doin "the people" an "infringe." @philthatremains's photo on The 2A

Don't like the 2A? Fine! Run on that, win elections, and amend the Constitution. Until then, shut the fuck up about it.

This is a pretty big statement for the upcoming "assault weapons" battle: The opinion re-emphasizes that the 2A protects, prime facie, "all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding...[cont.]

It’s quite telling that progressive politicians bemoan SCOTUS’s defense of the 2A. Eric Adams, Biden, Hochul, and others claim a robust 2A, where bureaucrats can’t abridge it at whim, will make us unsafe. They’re wrong: rights violations are the true danger in a Republic.

@GeorgeTakei George, Abortions are not in the Constitution but the 2A is very clear. If you don’t like it than consider moving to a country that fits your lifestyle but don’t tread on ours!

...Thus, even though the 2A's definition of 'arms' is fixed according to its historical understanding, that general definition covers modern instruments that facilitate armed self-defense."

@SteveDaines The 2A is about state militia. A corrupt SCOTUS doesn’t change what the Founders discussed or intended. Individual rights were never on the table with them.
23 Jun, 03:37 PM UTC
@skofarrell @NoLieWithBTC Require a license, insurance and full registration for every bullet. Modern bullets weren't invented until after the 2A was ratified and therefore shouldn't be covered.

@GovMurphy The 2A was designed to allow the people protection from the govt first, all others 2nd. There is no misinterpretation, just a following of the law. Feel free to explore Canada if your triggered.

i get the 2a but if you carry a gun for self defense youre looking for a fight. youre hoping for someone to spout off to you so you can “defend” yourself. these same people would probably piss down their leg if they were in a mall/grocery store/etc and someone started shooting.
23 Jun, 05:13 PM UTC
Do you think red flag laws are designed to get around the 2A because congress knows they can't eliminate the 2A from the constitution?

Three SCOTUS justices just tried to repeal the #2A from the bench. There’s a Constitutional path to repeal. This isn’t it. This is tyranny. BREAKING: Supreme Court STRIKES DOWN New York concealed carry restrictions | The Post Millennial https://t.co/cbNGVuSWdQ

@JunkScience Thomas said the 2A wasn't a secondary right
23 Jun, 03:02 PM UTC
@ThisIsKyleR The Second Amendment is a law Each state creates laws that either restrict or expand the 2A based on politics, societal factors & political rhetoric The 2A on that day protected you but it did not protect the two *Unarmed* men who found u threatening in an Unarmed Riot So, no

@crazyswedishguy @Impenitent2A No. The sentence does not restrict the right to keep and read books, nor does it state or imply possession of the right elsewhere or by others other than the people; it simply makes a positive declarative statement with respect to the right of the people. Now, reread the 2A. /x

@VinDeStefano1 You are very welcome. I stand in awe of your virtue. You may want to read up on some key catalysts that caused the 2a to be included back in the day

@janetw58 You don't understand what the 2A means apparently, and what's dangerous is everyone but the criminals walking around unarmed. Bad guys don't give one flying fuck about gun laws.
