From my Firearms Instructor

"Today, our Supreme Court cynically declined to hear the Peruta vs CA Case. 

Justices Thomas and Gorsuch magnificently dissented!

I can’t put it more eloquently:

'The Constitution does not rank certain  rights above  others, and I do not think this Court should  impose such a hierarchy by  selectively enforcing its preferred rights. Second Amendment rights are no less  protected by our Constitution than other rights enumerated in that  document.

The Court  has not heard argument in a Second Amendment  case in over seven years—since March 2, 2010, in McDonald v Chicago.  Since  that time, we  have heard  argument in, for example, roughly 35 cases where  the question presented turned on the meaning of the First Amendment and 25 cases  that turnedon the meaning of the Fourth Amendment.  This discrepancy is  inexcusable, especially given how much  less developed our jurisprudence is  with respect to the Second Amendment as compared to the First and Fourth  Amendments.

For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded   constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the  Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous.  But, the Framers  made a clear choice:

They reserved to all Americans the right to bear arms for  self-defense. I do not think we should stand-by idly, while a State denies  its citizens that right, particularly when their very lives may depend on  it. I respectfully dissent.'

Thomas and Gorsuch are genuine heroes!

... and they will have their day! 

Before DJT’s first term ends, Justice Thomas will be writing the MAJORITY ruling in a Second Amendment Case.

In the interim, Californians are on their own. Their  governor, state legislature, and at least some of the Supremes consider them  expendable. 

No “marbled halls” protect them, nor for that matter, the rest  of us!"
