ANOTHER Federal Gun Law Stricken In Court

Gun control laws are a blight on the American people. These laws do nothing but prevent Americans from protecting themselves from criminals (including bad government), and gun control laws are unconstitutional by their very nature. After all, the Second Amendment is unwaveringly straight-forward.

Of course, that hasn’t stopped ignorant, foolish, and/or power-hungry people from pushing and, sometimes, passing gun control laws.

Fortunately, though, a court recently struck down another gun control law, and the implications of this court case could be widespread. Mimi Nguyen Ly writes,

A judge has ruled that a federal law banning guns that have had their serial numbers removed is unconstitutional.

Serial numbers were first required by the federal Gun Control Act of 1968 to allow guns to be traced. They were adopted in an effort to prevent illegal gun sales.

The law at issue prohibits any person from transporting a gun with the serial number “altered, obliterated, or removed,” across state lines. It also prohibits them from possessing such a gun if it has ever been transported across state lines.

The decision filed on Oct. 12 […], written by U.S. District Judge Joseph Goodwin in Charleston, West Virginia, blocks the law from taking effect.

That’s the way that this should have always played out.

What will especially gall many anti-2A people is, beyond the fact that this judge did the right thing by upholding the Constitution, this judge was appointed by Bill Clinton, and it’s Democrats who have been the ones who are overtly hostile to the Second Amendment.

Bill and Hillary must be gnashing their teeth about this right about now.

But Goodwin did the right thing here. Ly continues:

“Any modern regulation that does not comport with the historical understanding of the right is to be deemed unconstitutional, regardless of how desirable or important that regulation may be in our modern society,” Goodwin said in his decision.

“While I recognize there is an argument … that firearms with an obliterated serial number are likely to be used in violent crime and therefore a prohibition on their possession is desirable, that argument is the exact type of means-end reasoning the Supreme Court has forbidden me from considering,” he also wrote.

After so many years in which it seemed that activist judges were going to conspire with anti-2A politicians to make Americans defenseless, it’s certainly good to be winning again.

  1. The law about having SERIAL NUMBERS on guns was to stop ILLEGAL GUN SALES …
    HOW IS THAT WORKING ???
    The 2nd. Amendment has NO RESTRICTIONS therefore all gun laws are illegal …

    • Better check out NYC BoB.Criminals don’t need A license to carry a gun,just the honest ones. Sound about right.

  2. You are completely right Robert all these gun laws are unconstitutional and they know it. They want us helpless and fear that We The People will take back our country from these tyrants now they can’t have that can they. There is an old saying it goes something like this, when tyranny becomes law rebellion is duty. I think that says it all. We all need to stand for are rights to be free civilians and to protect and feed our families. See we really don’t need the government telling us what to do instead we need to be telling the government they work for us it is time to fire them all and find people who actually love America and what it stand for the corruption has gone on for far too long time for change. We all need to stand for what we know is true and right. We also need to get back to our Christian values and back to GOD

  3. Finally, a judge who can actually understand the concise wording of the Second Amendment!

  4. This Globalist installed government has moved so far into it’s Anti-American agenda, the judges are even concerned about the Rule of Law being trampled out of existence. Maybe the Democrats should have prevented the unlawful Libertard Protests outside the residences of the Supreme Court Justices. Lower court judges may fear they might be next, if they don’t act.

  5. We are not China, Russia, or North Korea. The founders had the foresight to create the second amendment for precisely the reason to keep a now overreaching government in balance. Why do you think they are rushing to create a more massive bureaucracy?

  6. God gave us a Right to protect ourselves.it didn’t matter how.be a gun or our first.or whatever. he gave us that Right.

  7. John 3:16, that is the most sense I have heard in a long time! I’m all for taking back our country from the tyrants and I’ve been yelling it from the rooftops to anyone who will listen! Let’s use this technology to our advantage and find like- minded Americans because in another year it could be too late! Remember,
    Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace.

  8. We can just be glad the historical understanding of the right to keep and bear arms is what it is, or we’d likely lose that right in spite of the 2nd. Amendment. Actually, we absolutely have that right anyway, regardless of any understanding of it.

  9. Criminals will always find a way to get a gun.
    With numbers or not.
    People with no conscience and love of money will always supply others with guns.
    What to do?
    Allow the rightfully people to own guns. Decent people will never use guns with nefarious ideas. But with training will PREVENT many horrendous events.
