Supreme Court shoots down gun cases, upholds ban on assault weapons and open-carry

AP_16336592453163_c0-73-3072-1864_s885x516The Supreme Court announced Monday it had declined to hear two Second Amendment cases, leaving intact gun control laws in Maryland that restrict the types of weapons that can be bought, and in Florida that largely prevent gun owners from carrying their weapons in the open.

The justices denied both cases without comment, leaving in place lower-court rulings upholding the two laws.

Eric Friday, who represented gun owners in the Florida case, said he thought the court’s Second Amendment supporters were making a strategic decision in refusing to hear the cases, keeping their powder dry for later, when they may have more support on the high court.

“This fight for the Second Amendment is not a short-term fight, this is a long-term fight,” Mr. Friday told The Washington Times. “We are not going to quit just because the Supreme Court didn’t take two cases.”

    Even a conservative court will still support some restrictions, they have in the past. Every freedom has some limitations. These limits may shift from right to left from time to time but they never go away. Our system allows for shifts in how we view things which is why we still have it after all these years. Because of how it is written the second amendment is more open to interpretation the some others. Even if the court is packed with conservative judges there will still be some gun controls.

      You liberal ass holes will claim that every amendment is “open to interpretation”. They are not. Your position is a liberal position and just because you have no idea how to even use a fire arm, you think everyone is as dumb as you. Now go phuck yourself you ass hole.

        Once again you proved you dropped out of school in the third grade. The reason for the supreme court is to interpret the the constitution and until a few years ago the second amendment was interpreted as one single though. Also I’m willing to bet I’m a better shot then you are with a long gun. I shot a group that you can cover with a half dollar. Not every gun owner is as stupid as you.
