In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision in NYRPA v Buren, we are seeing a total melt-down of the Democratic leadership. You would think, based on the news coverage that the Supreme Court had legalized mayhem and manslaughter. Nothing could be further from the case.
President Biden fumbles his way through a disjointed response, but he is disappointed.
From my own cursory reading of the opinion, I was struck by how many times the justices referred to "law-abiding" people. This decision only affects law-abiding people, just as restrictive gun laws only affect law-abiding people. Murder and mayhem are still illegal.
As I mull the implications, realizing that this decision doesn't affect me, except in a small way, I am struck by the realization that the folks who are outraged over this decision don't trust us.
President Biden, VP Harris, and Mayor Adams don't trust law-abiding people to keep and bear arms. That is the lesson from this case. They don't trust us. I have suspected this for many years, and it is a scathing indictment of the gun-grabbers.
