Supreme Court rules emphatically in favor of gun owners rights

It’s unusual for the entire Supreme Court to side with conservatives on any issue. However, the court unanimously upheld the rights of a gun owner in a surprising 9-0 decision Monday.

The Supreme Court terminated a major gun rights infringement by ruling in favor of a man whose Fourth Amendment rights were violated when law enforcement seized his weapon without a warrant, Breitbart reported. “The Fourth Amendment protects ‘[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,’” the high court’s opinion stated.

The petitioner had voluntarily gone to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation on the condition that he would be able to keep his weapons. “Guided by petitioner’s wife — whom they allegedly misinformed about his wishes — respondents entered the home and took two handguns,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote on behalf of the court.

His rationale hinged on the petitioner’s claim that his weapons were unlawfully taken ostensibly to protect him from harming himself. According to Thomas, the petitioner “denied that he was suicidal” but his weapons were nonetheless taken because the respondents decided the “petitioner posed a risk to himself or others.”

The man initially sued and a lower court upheld the right of law enforcement to take his weapons on the grounds of a “community caretaking exception” to the requirement for law enforcement to obtain warrant. He appealed to the high court to hear the case that would indirectly address the Second Amendment, though the main issue was the Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure.

“The ‘very core’ of this guarantee is ‘the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion,’” the opinion stated. “To be sure, the Fourth Amendment does not prohibit all unwelcome intrusions ‘on private property’ — only ‘unreasonable’ ones.”

Thomas especially took issue with the overreach of the community caretaking exception that he said “goes beyond anything this Court has recognized.” Justice Samuel Alito echoed that sentiment in his own opinion. “I entirely agree — that there is no special Fourth Amendment rule for a broad category of cases involving ‘community caretaking,’” he wrote.

This was a victory for conservatives who treasure the Second Amendment as well as for the leftists who fear police overreach. Sometimes the priorities of the two sides intersect and this was a case that became a victory all around — especially for the American people.

    1. After leaving my previous job 6 months ago, I’ve some good luck to learn about this website which was a life-saver for me… They offer jobs for which people can work online from their house. My latest paycheck after working for them for 1 months was for $9500… Amazing thing about is that the only thing required is simple typing skills and access to internet…

      1. I say that we should send each one a shrub, and a note with the word (NI).
        And maybe some elderberries too!

      2. “ABSOLUTELY AGREE!”
        Also funny how they decide what to post what they want here as I have many of many never did!

    1. Even a blind squirrel(liberal supreme court justices) can find an acorn every now and then!

  3. Why can’t the anti gun groups get it thur their heads that the second amendment is the protection of all of our rights under the Consitution. PERIOD !

  4. Thanks to the Supreme Court! Americans need to be able to protect themselves from the illegals, and criminals streaming across the southern border… and no doubt many of them are armed! Also from BLM and Antifa who are supported by many of the demonrats in our Congress.

  5. It’s amazing that the whole court got it right. We might start seeing the court stand up for the second amendment. A lot of them don’t read the words “Shall not be infringed upon “. When they want to take my second amendment rights, what part of the first amendment do they want to give up

  6. Well O’Rourk and Buttenberg what do you think about that. What was it you said? “We are coming for your AR15’s your AK47’s and all your guns”. I guess you won’t be coming after all but if you want to try I will be waiting. Just me and all my guns…

  7. Praise God! There may still be some hope for the Supreme Court, after all! Judge, Clarence Thomas, keep putting on the pressure!

  8. Amen. While I’m a little surprised that the Supreme Court ruled this way unanimously, I am very heartened that they did.

  10. THANK YOU FOR HELPING DEFEND OURSELVES, OUR FAMILY’S AND OUR COUNTRY!
    THANK YOU ,SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

  11. It is feeling good that the Supreme Court stood up for the 4th Amendment. With the demonRATS tearing up the Constitution and the Bill of Rights maybe we have at least one judge in our corner. Where are the domestic terrorists antifa and blm now. They usually get away with murder so someone being able to keep their guns is going against their way of thinking, if they can think at all.

  12. The Supreme Court has made a historical decission in
    avoiding the possiblity of a level of retaliation unseen
    in America ever before.
    The idea of a gun confiscation without warrant or just
    cause will do nothing but bring on another civil war and
    there would be no getting it under control.
    Millions of legally owned guns did’nt kill anyone today,
    thousands of illegally guns will kill again tonight, there
    is where the need for gun laws that must be enforced.!

  13. This is about 4A rights, not 2A rights. This made it to SCOTUS because a liberal judge thought if it came to seizing GUNS the 4A rights don’t matter. Al this means is, in the future the cops will call a liberal judge and get a warrant! I see no reason for this to be good news, SCOTUS is basically saying gun seizures must be per 4A rights, and if BIDEN uses Executive Action to MAKE GUNS ILLEGAL, the 4A rights will NOT APPLY!

    1. First of all your posting name is disturbing to begin with.
      Where are you located.? If your are an American expressing
      your opinion from Taiwan thats to be excepted but,If you are
      just another so called Tiawanese American nobody cares.!

  14. Texans ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE UP THEIR GUNS. THEY WILL ALL Stand Up And FIGHT FOR THEIR Right TO BAIR ARMS and PROTECT THEIR Homes, Families, Property, Neighbors AND Most Of ALL OUR COUNTRY FROM ALL WHO THINK they can TAKE EVERYTHING AWAY From US. YES This means WW111 WILL BE COMING TO AMERICA IF THE DIMDUMBRATS DON’T STOP THEIR IDIOTIC BS, COMMUNISTIC WAYS. Like OUR FELLOW VETERANS; WE TRUE AMERICANS WILL FIGHT To THE BITTER END. We WILL NOT GIVE UP OUR GOD GIVEN RIGHTS NOR OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. LEAVE US THE HELL ALONE!!!!

  15. I get paid over $190 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 15k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
