BREAKING: SCOTUS Rules 8-1 Against Gun Owners – Thomas Dissents

The Supreme Court has upheld a law allowing the removal of Second Amendment rights on thin procedure.

by | Jun 21, 2024 | Articles, Law

The Supreme Court ruled in an 8-1 decision authored by Chief Justice John Roberts that civil domestic abuse court judges may issue bans on firearm possession. Justice Thomas was the lone dissenter.

Chief Justice Roberts delivered the opinion for the Court in which Justices Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Barrett, and Ketanji Jackson joined. Justice Sotomayor filed a concurring opinion joined by Justice Kagan. Justice Gorsuch also filed a separate concurrence, joined by Justices Kavanaugh, Barrett, and Jackson. Justice Clarence Thomas was the lone dissenter.

May the federal government criminalize firearm possession by those with civil domestic violence protection orders against them? Yes, now that question is settled. For Justice Thomas, it was settled with the Second Amendment and the Bruen case. His dissent starts:

“After New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, this Court’s directive was clear: A firearm regulation that falls within the Second Amendment’s plain text is unconstitutional unless it is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation. Not a single historical regulation justifies the statute at issue, 18 U. S. C. §922(g)(8). Therefore, I respectfully dissent.”
