Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds after the Supreme Court actually did its job today and upheld the Second Amendment right to bear arms by striking down New York state’s requirement that citizens have to prove they have a “good cause” in order to get a concealed carry permit.
“Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution,” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas went on to write for a 6-3 majority in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association v. Bruen.
The reaction by the left to this news is pretty much exactly what you would expect it to be. Meaning there was lots of temper tantrum throwing, some crying, probably screaming into pillows and vigorously scribbling in an adult coloring book. Oh, a few actually called for states to defy the court’s ruling.
“It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States,” former sportscaster Keith Olbermann stated in a post published on Twitter. “The first step is for a state the “court” has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling. Great. You’re a court? Why and how do think you can enforce your rulings? #IgnoreTheCourt.”

“Democratic Gov. Kathy Hochul of New York lambasted the ruling in a statement that was released on video, saying the state’s legislature would convene to address the high court’s ruling,” the Daily Caller reported.
“We just received some very disturbing news from Washington; that the Supreme Court of the United States of America has stripped away the state of New York’s right and responsibility to protect its citizens,” Hochul went on to say, calling the ruling’s language “shocking.”
“The SCOTUS decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol v. Bruen is a radical and reckless rewrite of the Court’s prior positions on the 2A and states’ rights to pass commonsense gun safety legislation,” Democratic Attorney General William Tong of Connecticut posted in a tweet.
Democratic voters: Hold the House, expand the Senate with wins in PA and WI, then expand the Supreme Court to 15 justices.
Do it now, or we won’t recognize our country in a few years.

As you watch the Supreme Court today undermine some rights (Miranda!) while expanding others (guns!), don’t forget that it doesn’t have to be this way. Dems control the White House & both branches of Congress for a few months more & could un-pack/re-balance this GOP-packed court.

Here are more details on this from Daily Caller:
Elie Mystal, the justice correspondent for The Nation, supported the expansion of the Supreme Court pushed by Democratic Rep. Mondaire Jones of New York.
“Again, @MondaireJones is one of the only people in Congress who gets that the way to stop the court is to expand the court,” he tweeted.

I really hope Dem primary voters decide to *keep* him in Congress, because we need this voice. https://t.co/sR26xfIhRu

Hochul and Tong did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.
If conservatives said some of the stuff that liberals have said here about ignoring the court, they would be screaming and crying, holding massive protests and calling people fascists left and right.
