Keith Olbermann, Liberal commentator, insisted this week for the Supreme Court to be dissolved after they, once again, confirmed the Second Amendment.
The highest Court turned down a NY legislature that required residents that are wanting a concealed carry permit to show “proper cause” for getting one.
According to the law, having a concealed carry license just for your personal protection when outside of your home did not qualify you unless you were famous.
In the court decision, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas stated:
The constitutional freedom to carry weapons when out in public to protect ourselves is not a “second-class” right, subject to a separate body of regulations than the other Bill of Rights provides.
“We don’t have of any other constitutional rights that a person can exercise only after showing government officials a particular need. That is not the way the First Amendment functions when it comes to free speech or religious freedom. It’s not the way the Sixth Amendment is when we are talking about a defendant’s right to face his or her accusers. And it’s not how the 2nd Amendment works when it comes to open carry for self-defense.”
How did Olbermann respond?
The former ESPN and MSNBC host urged SCOTUS to be abolished and for the court’s decision to be disregarded.
“It has become needed to disband the highest court of the nation. The first stage is for a state that has been forced to accept gun bans by a ‘court’ to disregard it,” Olbermann said. “That’s wonderful. You’re a court? How and why do you propose to enforce your decisions?”
In a subsequent tweet, he bashed the Supreme Court’s conservative-leaning justices, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett being singled out and degrading her stance as a justice.
Democratic senators and representatives are increasingly calling for the court to be changed in order to achieve the outcomes they desire. When Dems suggest packing the court, they typically imply adding more liberal-leaning judges to guarantee a liberal bias in the decisions.
However, we must ask: Is the logic of Olbermann’s position valid? If the pro-Second Amendment decision is not considered legally binding this week, does that imply a pro-abortion ruling may not be either?
We’re probably already aware of how Olbermann and the other Democrats will respond to that one.
