[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The Supreme Court has recently taken up the case of same-sex marriage and Obamacare subsidies. However, the highest court in the land has refused to take up an important Second Amendment case and in refusing to do so, has left the law-abiding citizens of San Francisco largely defenseless against the armed thugs who simply do not care about laws.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]The NRA has fought the city ordinance that mandates that citizens secure weapons in their homes with lockboxes, keep the weapon on their person, or keep such weapons stored with trigger locks. The bayside city has also banned “expanding” bullets- commonly known as hollow-points.
The hollow-point ban signifies an ignorance of ballistics on an institutional level as such bullets are not only more lethal to intended targets, but also fragment upon impact and are much less likely to over-penetrate a target and hit an innocent bystander.
Justices Scalia and Thomas, reliable conservatives on the court, claimed that they would hear the case brought forth by the NRA. Alas, the court ultimately rejected the case.
The highest court was on a roll for several years, bolding declaring the Second Amendment an individual right and then, later, ruling that such a right extended to the states.
However, in recent years, the Supreme Court has dragged its feet on defending the Second Amendment against the continual threats and endangerments concocted by gun control advocates who simply cannot abide the thought of an armed populace.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
