Gun owners had a few brief hours of elation after the release of the Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs Bruen.

They were quickly whipsawed back to reality mere hours later when the Senate passed sweeping new gun restrictions.  The US House joined the Senate the following day to send the legislation to Joe Biden for his signature.

The left immediately, and predictably, lost its collective mind and declared the ruling the end of the world. It was only the decision on Roe v Wade, released the following day, that distracted them from their hyperbolic hyperventilating on guns and how blood would run in the streets.

(They quickly promised that indeed, blood would run in the streets.)

The new attack on gun rights is S 2938.  The bill was cheered by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer as a victory, but, as he has been saying for about 40 years, is only a “first step.”

Republican Senator John Cornyn, one of the masterminds behind this latest attack on your rights and the US Constitution would have cheered the passage of the bill, but his lips were glued to Schumer’s backside and hence he was silenced.

Once again, Republicans have snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. At a time when the Democrats are panicking about coming elections because their policies have America teetering on the brink of total destruction, the Republicans throw them a life line and spit in the face of the people who elected them.

It’s as predictable as congressional sex scandals. 

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called the bill a victory and claimed it protected the 2nd Amendment. Clearly the Senate bar is still open and free.

The bill bribes states to impose unconstitutional, “pre-crime” red flag laws which, in spite of the flaccid assurances to the contrary, will be misused against people who have committed no crime.

It further complicates failed background checks. In Oregon, the State Police, who are tasked with conducting background checks, do such an abysmal job that many have come to conclude it is the single role of OSP to prevent law abiding people from legally obtaining guns.

The bill also creates new obstacles for 18-20 year olds when trying to purchase firearms.

It adds new and confusing regulations on who must now obtain an FFL.

That’s what the Democrats got. In exchange for their fealty, the Republicans, and America’s gun owners got… nothing.  Another brilliant deal expertly negotiated by the brain trusts wearing the Republican Jersey.

But at least gun owners got some good news in the Supreme Court decision on gun rights. Right?

Well SCOTUS did strike down one element of New York’s arcane, byzantine, elitist, and incomprehensible pistol license law.

They said New York’s rule that licenses to carry would only be granted to those who could successfully bribe a NYPD official was unconstitutional.

In the brief moments before the next day’s Roe v Wade decision was made public, the taking heads and idiot politicians were calling the ruling “seismic” and predicting that it would have unimaginable effects on gun laws in many states.

Tina Kotek, the Democrat candidate for Oregon Governor, was apoplectic. 

“Just weeks after 19 children were murdered in an elementary school in Texas, the Trump-dominated Supreme Court has issued a ruling that will increase the number of guns on the streets in cities and towns across the country. It will make communities less safe.”

Her comments were bizarre even for her. According to Kotek, the ruling will “make communities less safe” by requiring New York to have concealed handgun license laws that are more like…Portland’s.

While the two other “leading” candidates for governor, both of whom have pretended to be “pro-gun,” did weigh in on the abortion ruling, they were nowhere to be found on the SCOTUS decision about firearms.
