Today’s Supreme Court decision blocking President Trump from ending the Obama-era immigration program DACA, with Chief Justice John Roberts joining the four liberal justices on the bench in declaring that Trump’s attempt to undo a previous president’s executive order with one of his own was “arbitrary and capricious,” provides more evidence that Roberts is no longer considered a reliable vote in favor of protecting the Second Amendment rights of gun owners by his own colleagues on the bench, which is why ten cases dealing with the right to keep and bear arms were all recently rejected by the Court, even though there are clearly enough votes on the bench to consider one or more challenges to gun control laws.
Trump weighed in on the DACA decision on Twitter shortly after it was handed down, and directly tied in the opinion by Roberts to the future of the Second Amendment at the Court.
These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people that are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives. We need more Justices or we will lose our 2nd. Amendment & everything else. Vote Trump 2020!
