The Supreme Court Hands Down 2nd Amendment Decision

The Supreme Court has started its new session for the fall. They are already putting their mark on the past. In the past, the court has invalidated a law that was against the Second Amendment in the state of New York. The verdict significantly restricted the ability of liberal states to impinge on the gun rights of citizens in the United States.

But there is still a long way to go in this legal case. They just proposed yet another stringent gun control measure in a blue state located nearby.

In light of the court’s prior finding, the Supreme Court has requested that the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit examine the law that applies in Massachusetts. If a person in Massachusetts was convicted of a misdemeanor that did not involve violence, they were not allowed to purchase a handgun even if they wanted to.

A restriction of this severity exceeds the requirements of many state laws governing firearms. A person’s inability to purchase a firearm can be based on a conviction for a crime that did not include physical violence. In light of the 1st Circuit’s judgment regarding a gun control bill in New York, the court has decided to order that circuit to review this matter.

It would appear that the United States Supreme Court believes that its decision in the case of New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen applies to the majority of other states as well. The court ruled in that instance that a state cannot set stringent requirements on its inhabitants who are applying for a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The court stated in its decision that in order for gun control regulations to be legal, they must be deeply established in American history.

Before the middle of the 1960s, there was no such thing as gun control. It wasn’t until then that Congress began actively passing curbs on gun ownership. Therefore, one could make the case that the majority of our gun regulations are not deeply anchored in our nation’s past. It raises the potential for a wide variety of difficulties in blue states.

Because of this latest ruling, the statute in Massachusetts might be reversed. And this may be just the beginning of things.
