Restricting the rights of gun owners is the radical Left’s top priority.
Leftists know that disarming the general public is crucial if they hope to implement their radical agenda.
But Democrats are beside themselves after young law-abiding gun owners just scored a win no one saw coming.
The Left will stop at nothing to disarm law abiding gun owners
Although 17-year-olds can join the military in America, they cannot legally drink, smoke, or purchase a handgun in most states until they turn 21.
This age restriction is the result of decades of failed Democrat policies, designed to enforce their backwards view of morality on the American public.
However, the antiquated and pointless age restriction on handgun purchases may soon come to an end.
Last week, U.S. District Court Judge Robert Payne issued a decision against these age restrictions, arguing that they directly conflict with a couple of landmark Supreme Court rulings.
More specifically, Judge Payne cited the landmark Heller and Bruen cases, which reaffirm an individual’s right to own firearms.
“In Heller, the Supreme Court stated that its holding ‘did not cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions’ including ‘laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms,’” Payne claimed.
“The Government simply has not met its burden to support the finding that restrictions on the purchasing of firearms by 18-to-20-year-olds is part of our Nation’s history and tradition,” he added. “Because the statutes and regulations in question are not consistent with our Nation’s history and tradition, they, therefore, cannot stand.”
This decision is sending shockwaves across the nation, especially in a time in which the radical Left is attempting to disarm the American public entirely.
For example, the Bruen case Judge Payne is referring to involved a law in New York State that requires concealed carry applicants to give a reason for their permit.
Thankfully, the Supreme Court struck down the law, which sent Democrats into a fit of rage.
Currently, semi-automatic rifles are in Democrats’ crosshairs, and many states are taking steps to effectively ban them.
States like Oregon have already banned so-called “high capacity magazines,” and require licenses for any gun purchase.
These restrictions are facing multiple legal challenges, and will likely be at the top of the agenda for federal courts in coming years.
Democrats are attacking law-abiding gun owners as their cities burn to the ground
Time and time again, the radical Left has made it clear that they are no friends of the Second Amendment, or law-abiding citizens for that matter.
Rather than focusing their resources on maintaining law and order, and preventing illegal guns from entering the black market, Democrats would rather focus on their political enemies.
Crime is raging out of control in Democrat-controlled cities and states across the nation.
And to make matters worse, the border is wide open, allowing an endless stream of drug, weapon, and human trafficking into Joe Biden’s America.
