Bloomberg says he’ll make sure to neuter the Second Amendment with ‘anti-gun’ Supreme Court justices

(TNS) Do you remember when Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts criticized President Donald Trump’s characterization of a federal jurist who defied established law and struck down one of his early immigration executive orders as “an Obama judge?”

Hey…hey! Roberts lectured. ‘We’re not political here on the high court! We’re chosen for our constitutional acumen and expertise and politics has nothing to do with selection!’ We don’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges.”

Yeah, right. We laughed too, the same as everyone else who knows and understands how federal judges and Supreme Court judges are selected.

In any event, thank God President Trump not only won in 2016 but has held true to his promise to appoint constitutional originalists to the federal bench and the nation’s highest court.

Because that truly is the only academic, legal, and ‘political’ consideration that should go into any nominee to the Judicial Branch by the president and considered by the Senate.

Enter Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire media mogul who founded the anti-gun organization Everytown For Gun Safety.

He wants to do just the opposite of what President Trump is doing: He wants to nominate Supreme Court justices who will patently disregard certain constitutional guarantees like the Second Amendment, which protects Americans’ “right to keep and bear arms” without infringement.

In an opinion piece in the Chicago Tribune, Bloomberg rehashed his stance on the Supreme Court case known as New York Rifle and Pistol Association v. New York City. 

Townhall:

At the time, NYC prohibited gun owners from transporting firearms outside of city limits, even if the resident was taking them to a gun range. Once the New York Rifle and Pistol Association, along with the National Rifle Association (NRA) and Second Amendment Foundation (SAF )challenged the city’s ordinance in a court of law, NYC decided to rescind the law.

The city tried to get the lawsuit thrown out, saying the point is now moot because the ordinance no longer exists. Gun rights advocates, however, are worried the city will reimplement the law if the Supreme Court decides to throw out the case. 

Bloomberg predictably blames pro-gun groups like the NRA (which was founded in large part to protect and defend the Second Amendment from would-be tyrants like Bloomberg and every other Democrat).

His solution is to “appoint judges who understand that the Second Amendment allows for common sense limits on gun ownership.”

He writes:

The last major gun safety ruling by the Supreme Court, in 2008, affirmed that reasonable restrictions on gun possession are constitutional. But the NRA has not given up on its absolutist vision of the Second Amendment, which is inconsistent with American history, oblivious to public safety and out of step with the American people. The NRA opposes much-needed fixes to the gun-sale background check system — which are supported by 90% of Americans — as well as restrictions on gun possession for domestic abusers and stalkers.

As president, I will appoint judges who understand that the Second Amendment allows for common sense limits on gun ownership. I’ve spent 15 years working to build a national coalition that is capable of taking on the NRA and winning — and I’m glad to say that we now have the NRA on the ropes. That may be one reason why the NRA is hoping the court will save it.



Mind you, Bloomberg hates “assault weapons” — those misnamed semi-automatic rifles that fit neatly into the legal description of a “firearm.”

The Second Amendment explicitly protects our right to “keep and bear” firearms. So what’s ‘common sense’ to Bloomberg and his anti-Second Amendment justices?

That would have to be confiscation…right?

How else would he get rid of them?

You know, Mike, maybe America wouldn’t need an NRA if we didn’t have Left-wing politicians who constantly seek to neuter the Second Amendment.

Looks like Doomberg is just the man the 2nd amendment was put in the Constitution for. When a totalitarian dictator tries to infringe on our rights, well, sometimes dictators end up assassinated in 3rd world countries.

Well Mike, too bad you are a day late and a dollar short. Even if you were elected President (and you wont be), Trump has already corrected the SC. You more than likely would not get a chance to install anyone, except for possibly replacing Ruth. But she is so far left it wouldn’t make any difference.

Saturday Night Live, Townhall episodes with Woody Harrelson as Biden, and the one recently as they portrayed Bloomberg is on point and hilarious. check it out. But seriously, They are trying to take away all our rights, by taking our guns we are not citizens anymore we are servants we can not protect ourselves from anybody or even a rogue cop, the gov’t takes over we as people are not a threat to them, they are also attacking free speech, we don’t even have a fourth amendment anymore as far as I can tell.

Roberts cannot be so naive as to not realize that there are liberal and conservative Supreme Court Justices. I’m guessing he just felt a need to contradict Trump. This is not a good sign for future rulings that Roberts might be the Swing Vote for.

Good thing that he won’t be our next president.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

Never did see the expiration date on that.

So I guess Bloomberg, who thinks Trump’s ego is off the charts, must have a bigger one since he gloats more.

There is one difference, Trump gloated and has gotten things done… I like that kind of gloating.

Bloomberg has been gloating for years and all we have from him is a monopoly of over priced “Bloomberg terminals”… 17,500 bucks and more per month, and 2,600 journalists on the Bloomberg payroll to agree with him.

You show me a Democrat, and I’ll show you a radical anti-American pathological serial liar, a corrupt political criminal, a globalist socialist marxist leftist anarchist communist, a violent fascist, a seditious treasonous ideologue zealot who’s sole belief and intent is the destruction of not just Pres Trump, his Admin, the Republican Party of Lincoln, but more specifically destroy and burn to the ground America as a Constitutional Republic-Govt Of, By, and For We the People, the Electoral College, the Bill of Rights – Freedom of Religion, Speech, Right to Bear Arms, etc ..

No guns, no sodas over 16oz, more taxes on the middle class to pay for cut rate inferior healthcare for everyone including illegal aliens, no school choice, more regulations(fewer jobs), higher taxes on small businesses. Oh yeah, spending $100M + on TV ads full of bs promises. A wealthy version of AOC.

Apparently Bloomberg doesn’t understand that if he solicits potential justices that have a stated bias against the Second Amendment and that person ends up on the bench they would have to recuse them-self from that case.

Wrong about the NRA! They have actually helped write nearly every restriction of the RKBAs, starting with the 1934 NFA. NRA is a shill org which is losing members like crazy because they have been exposed for this, and the lavish salaries and perks for NRA bigwigs. GOA (Gun owners of America) is the real pro 2nd group, along with CCRKBAs, 2nd Amendment Foundation and several others

This single comment, “I will erase the 2nd Amendment, through judicial activism.”
Tells us. A). Bloomberg is a mental midget. B). Bloomberg is an enemy to every citizen of the United States. C). Bloomberg hates the Constitutional Rights,that prevents Tyrants from taking over.

I for one would welcome him to try this. I have his name and a very short period in the Pool.
