Is Justice Roberts Blocking Restoration of 2nd Amendment?


Many decisions handed down, recently, by Chief Justice John Roberts have conservative legal experts scratching their heads.

Allen Gottlieb, founder of Second Amendment Foundation, said that the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear 10 pending gun cases “falls squarely at the feet of Chief Justice John Roberts”.

Dave Workman’s article, at Ammoland, says the key question that must be answered is this:

“Is the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court afraid of restoring the Second Amendment to apply equally to all citizens?” It is beginning to appear that way.

The NRA seems to agree with that sentiment, calling the High Court’s inaction an allowance for anti-gun politicians to “trample on the freedom and security of law-abiding citizens”.

Justice Thomas' dissent was joined by Justice Kavanaugh in saying this should fall as one of the court's primary functions.

“One of this Court’s primary functions is to resolve ‘important matter[s]’ on which the courts of appeals are ‘in conflict.”…The question whether a State can effectively ban most citizens from exercising their fundamental right to bear arms surely qualifies as such a matter. We should settle the conflict among the lower courts so that the fundamental protections set forth in our Constitution are applied equally to all citizens.”

So, why won't the court hear cases related to the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights?

Ammoland questions whether Chief Justice Roberts is fearful of advancing the case any further due to the possibility of nullifying current laws in states such as NY and NJ.

Another of Justice Thomas' dissent, from 2018, blasts the way the Supreme Court has handled the 2nd Amendment cases.

“If a lower court treated another right so cavalierly, I have little doubt that this Court would intervene. But as evidenced by our continued inaction in this area, the Second Amendment is a disfavored right in this Court.”

Will this case ever be heard by the Supreme Court? It seems there hasn't been a time more pressing than the current one for such clarification. Gun purchases are shattering records due to the Covid-19 lockdowns and violent protests around the country.

  1. Roberts is a smarmy self serving liberal lackey, subservient to the left. With Roberts doing the bidding of the left America will have no constitutional laws, this man is a danger to America, he should be thrown off the court

  2. This is what happens when you have “questionable actions” committed by roberts in the “adoption” of his Irish children. This is being “used” by “deep State” operatives as a blackmail “tool” to CONTROL the head justice, and make him kowtow to numerous, illegal, unconstitutional democommunist demands.

  3. Justice Roberts, why don’t you pack up your family and move to Ireland? Oh, and don’t come back.

  4. Justice Roberts is a Globalist. Globalists are seekers of ‘World Government’. Obama is a Globalist. He weakened our economy, weakened our military, weakened our freedom all to force our country into joining the EU to begin a ‘World Government’. Have we seen attempts at ‘World Government” before? Yes – Alexander the Great, Roman Empire, British Empire, Nazism, Soviet Union, Radical Islam, Communist China, etc. and now Globalism. ALL ended in blood and death. Roberts is not against the Second Amendment. He is against the entire Constitution. His psychotic ego wants him to be call not Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America rather he demands to be called Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the World. Resign.

    1. I like your post and I agree with it. The first attempt at Globalism was Babylon and our creator kicked the Globalist’s tower over. That should inform any true Christian of what God thinks of Globalism.

  5. justice Roberts needs to do the job he is being paid for and not try to make his own laws, there is too mean DEMRATS in the courts now

  6. Roberts is a bush appointee and major disaster. He rules by politics not law and is betraying America

  7. It is time for the Supreme Court of the United States of America to start defending and protecting the Constitution of the United States of America, an oath that they all took. Based on comments from each SC Justice comments they claim they are impartial but their actions clearly show that they are anything but impartial, and inflict laws on us vs, interpreting the legality of laws based on the Constitution. Time for them to follow their constitutional obligations and put partisan politicals aside.

  8. Supreme Court member JOB is to uphold & protect our laws & amendments NOT skew them to fit in with ANY personal agenda…hear the Ruth ( respect warrants a title) or John. How dare you put your own PERSONAL spin on laws already on the books…you should be sanctioned & even removed from your high & mighty be ch

  9. Chief Justice Roberts was not nominated and approved by the Senate to be a wuss. Why is he afraid to tackle difficult but incredibly important cases?

  10. Some of so called conservatives have suddenly become traitors, such as the Mitt and Roberts and a couple of Generals, why? Appears to me they are caving to libs for some unexplainable reason!

  11. ANY Mayor , Congressman , Governor , Senator in ANY CITY OR STATE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT , WHO DOES NOT LIVE UP TO HIS OR HER OATH OF OFFICE TO “DEFEND AND UPHOLD” THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , AND ALL OF IT’S AMENDMENTS , AGAINST ALL ENEMIES Foreign AND DOMESTIC , OR WHO TRIES TO CHANGE , ALTER OR REDEFINE (TO SUITE THEIR OWN AGENDA) , IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM , IS A TRAITOR TO AMERICA AND IS GUILTY OF TREASON AGAINST AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND MUST BE IMMEDIATELY BE REMOVED , BY THE PRESIDENT , FROM HOLDING ANY POSITION IN AMERICAN GOVERNMENT , AND CHARGED WITH HIS OR HER CRIMES . PERIOD , END OF CONVERSATION , NO IF’S , AND’S OR BUT’S ABOUT IT .

  12. I’m sure because in watching what he’s done, I believe he is part of the Deep State; no other excuse!

  13. JUSTICE ROBERTS needs to be BRANDISHED from the. SCOTUS that has a pair of ROCK’S to stand up with TRUMP on ALL of her request .

  14. HERE’S A GOOD QUESTION …”I just watched the Democratic leaders of Congress kneel in the halls of Congress for about 9 minutes, for the death of a black man named George Floyd.

    I have never seen them kneel for a fallen Police Officer. I have never seen them kneel for a fallen Soldier.

    I NEVER SAW THEM KNEEL FOR THE SOLDIERS THAT HILLARY AND OBAMA LEFT TO DIE IN Benghazi!!

    I have never seen them kneel for the thousands of (black and white) babies aborted EVERY DAY.

    I have never seen them kneel for a murdered white man or woman. I have not seen them kneel for the thousands of black-on-black murder victims.

    I have not seen them kneel for the thousands of elderly people that died in nursing homes due to the Corona Virus.

    I have to ask: WHY are Democrats putting the life of George Floyd as more valuable than the lives of everyone else?

    In fact, Democrats have put so much value on the life of George Floyd, they have allowed rioting, looting, arson, murder and mayhem in communities Nationwide…

    ASK YOURSELF – WHY NOW?”

    1. GREAT post …a lot of “whys” in there which are being swept under the rug by a twisted liberal MSM .who hate the country and want COMMUNISM which has been taught to them by our RADICAL education system If you can call it that. More like indoctrination education system.

  15. I was raised in a military family so I had 20 years military before I enlisted. My close, basic families, retired honorably with pensions. We have traveled to and lived in several foreign countries and noticed the different in ours and them. We are very grateful to live here. I study military history for fun.

    I note that the first thing that must be done to control us masses is to remove the ability to legally/lawfully own/have/use a modern firearm. The second step is to remove the right to disagree with those in power; elected or otherwise. The third step is remove us common people from the decision making; what do we know?

    If you study the right/left wings of power, you note that they begin to bend back (like a ball shaped object) to the other side where they meet in dictatorship, tyrannize, and then chaos. Democracy is the mirror image of chaos but best.

  16. Chief justice Roberts needs to up hold the constitution and bill of rights and not to mention the most important the Declaration of independence is something they ignore and if they can’t obey their oth of office then they need to resign. This has been a long time coming and the reality is do your dam job that you swore to up hold , and everyone in a court of law or at the highest level the supreme court has a right to be heard, this is the law of the land. These chief justice’s have a duty and that is to here every case, and by law in the Declaration of independence says our rights shall not be infringe upon.

    1. Everyone has a right to present its case and be heard, regardless the nature of the case, I myself believe in the second Amendment and the sole duty of a law abiding citizen or citizens have a right to keep and bear arms, this is a civil duty of citizens to protect themselves, family and neighbors from criminals who intend to do bodily harm or kill someone. Why is it that the law leans towards the criminals then law abiding citizen. We need to stand firm and defend the second amendment it’s our duty to protect our self’s, and not be the victim or brutality murdered at the hands of some insane person, the supreme court justices needs to let other states know that they cannot change the Declaration of independence or the constitution of the United states. I took the oth to up hold the constitution when I went into the Armed services and know where in the oth said I could change it.

    2. Besides which SCOTUS has THROWN ASIDE the Declaration of Independence which in fact was the FIRST Constitution and Bill of Rights in the USA. It stood on its own for about 11 years. It was NOT replaced by the Constitution, it was amended by it!

  17. This country is crying out for the SCOTUS to rule on the 2nd Amendment. The court’s recent decision to “pass” on this responsibility is wrong and disheartening. It stinks of cowardice.

  18. The Supreme Court should listen to the people and the country’s needs when resolution must be rendered. In this case we have a substantial need to resolve issues regarding the 2nd Amendment. When controversy exist between regions of the 11 district appeals courts, then the Supreme Court must render a final verdict. Hiding from their responsibility is not an option. When a legal request is made for verdicts around a legal request involving the “Bill of Rights”; the Supreme Court is required to resolve issues whether the Court likes the set of cases or not. Answers to questions on legal precedent involving the “Bill of Rights”, need to be resolved in a timely manor. The Court in past judicial renderings did not have a problem issuing verdicts on all “Bill of Rights” questions except the 2nd Amendment. Now is the time for the Court to resolve the 2nd Amendment issues. The people require answers to these legal questions that the Appellate Courts have been appealed to the Supreme Court. The justices can not avoid or sch rick from their responsibility to the people.

  19. “a disfavored right”? Really? SCOTUS now wants to write law?
    I say hang all of SCOTUS by their gonads and replace them all with Constitutionalists instead of politicians.

    The real issue is that Joint Congress is supposed to be the watch dog over SCOTUS. Instead Congress run by liberals is ignoring that SCOTUS is writing law from the BENCH. Congress’ job is supposed to be writing laws that require SCOTUS to follow the Constitution.

  20. It is obvious that citizens will have to have the ability to defend themselves due to the political war on police!
    A United States Citizen has the God given right and duty to protect themselves and their families!
    If the race baiting and enabling politicians want to try to take that right away we will see how that goes! I personally think Americans that want the ability to protect themselves will find a way to preserve that right to do so regardless of an inept and dysfunctional government!

  21. It used to be said that Justice Roberts was a Conservative, but from Americans standing outside looking into the windows of the Supreme Court, it appears that Justice Roberts has sided more times with the Liberal side of the court.
    As an American who holds our Constitutional rights sacred, it would seem that our rights are being violated by the inactions of the court. Why is it then then, we are being held back from defending ourselves from the foreign and domestic. JUSTICE ROBERTS, respectfully support the 2and ammendment or step aside

  22. To anyone who doesn’t understand this yet, all such attacks against the Bill of Rights, just law and order, and our traditional American way of life (like co-opting the legitimate call for justice for George Floyd by inserting anarchic rioting, looting, “defund the police”, Chaz/Chop, etc.) are symptoms of the same hatred of our Constitutional Republic that fuels the Globalist/One World Government people. Evil people like George Soros fund these movements while “Progressives”, RINOS, and deep state actors do their part to destroy the underpinnings of “one Nation, under God.” Roberts appears to be a decent man who is being controlled because the deep state has evidence against him. Since he’s a professing Christian, if he’s living a lie, he’s a very sad human being. And, we’re seeing this anti-Christian progressive virus plaguing our churches as well. Trump must win in November, or we’re up the creek in terms of being a free country…
