President Joe Biden was none too happy with the decision the Supreme Court reached on Thursday, which struck down New York state’s restrictions on concealed carry permits for firearms.
In other words, Joe “Boohoo” Biden is crying his eyes out — on the inside — because the court dared to do its job and uphold the Constitution of the United States, which, the last time I checked was the law of the land around these parts.
Suck it up, buttercup.
The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of the Second Amendment in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, according to a report from The Daily Wire.
The report said that the court heard oral arguments in the case back in November of 2021. It seemed, at the time, the court was leaning in favor of dismissing the restrictions in the state.
This decision by the justices is the widest expansion of gun rights to happen in New York in over a decade, according to information shared by The Wall Street Journal.
Biden has since put out a statement in which he said he was “deeply disappointed” in the court’s decision.
Can you imagine being the leader of the most free country in the world, with perhaps the greatest single foundational piece on how government should work known to mankind as the basis for your nation’s greatness, and then saying you were disappointed in the court for upholding it?
“This ruling contradicts both common sense and the Constitution, and should deeply trouble us all,” he went on to say.
Tell me you’ve never read the Constitution, without telling me you’ve never read the Constitution.
The Second Amendment plainly states that the right to own a firearm is a God-given right that “shall not be infringed.” Plain English. By striking down the draconian gun control laws concerning concealed carry permits in the state of New York, the Supreme Court has honored that very important part of the amendment.
“The president appealed to recent acts of gun violence as evidence as to why New York’s law is needed while claiming that SCOTUS’ ruling endangers lives,” the Daily Wire reported.
“In the wake of the horrific attacks in Buffalo and Uvalde, as well as the daily acts of gun violence that do not make national headlines, we must do more as a society — not less — to protect our fellow Americans,” the president went on to claim. “I remain committed to doing everything in my power to reduce gun violence and make our communities safer. I have already taken more executive actions to reduce gun violence than any other President during their first year in office, and I will continue to do all that I can to protect Americans from gun violence.”
Biden then encouraged states to “enact and enforce commonsense laws to make their citizens and communities safer from gun violence,” while going on to say the dumbest thing he’s ever said concerning the Constitution by saying “the Second Amendment is not absolute.”
“For centuries, states have regulated who may purchase or possess weapons, the types of weapons they may use, and the places they may carry those weapons,” the president went on to say in his statement. “And the courts have upheld these regulations.”
Biden then concluded the statement by calling on “Americans across the country to make their voices heard on gun safety.”
“Lives are on the line,” he stated ominously.
Thankfully, not every person who serves this country in government is as intellectually stunted as Biden.
Justice Clarence Thomas, who wrote the opinion on the decision, argued that the requirement in New York that required citizens to demonstrate a need for a concealed carry permit was unconstitutional.
“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 First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion,” Thomas stated in the opinion. “It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self-defense.”
