The Supreme Court is poised to make us all live under Texas' gun laws

The Supreme Court is apparently preparing to send us a message: No matter where you live, no matter what you and your neighbors feel, you’ll have to live with the idea that just about anyone who wants to will be able to carry a gun in your community. If you’ve ever said, “I’m glad I don’t live in a place where people are armed,” you may no longer have any choice.

Precisely how far the court will go is still unknown. But in oral arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit challenging New York state’s requirement that those who want a permit to carry a gun most places need must show a “special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community,” a few things became clear.

First, the court is almost certain to strike down the New York law. All six conservative justices expressed skepticism of New York’s regulation, and some — especially Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neil M. Gorsuch — have made clear even before now that they are eager to expand the scope of gun rights as soon as possible.

Second, when the court does so, it will probably for the first time in American history create an individual “right” not just to own guns — which the court established, also for the first time in our history, in 2008 — but to carry them to public places.

The USA is turning into Archie Bunker world.

1. NY needs a law that allows individuals to sue SCOTUS

Every time they feel insecure about anything. Kinda like that dumb TX law about abortions.

4. That will make getting rid of liberals easy.

Question to Charlie Kirk, NAZI, at Boise State address:

“How many elections are they going to steal before we kill these people?”
