Anti-Gun Groups Angered When They Don’t Get A Liberal Activist Judge

With the likelihood that Amy Coney Barrett gets confirmed in the U.S. Senate next week, anti-gun groups have a lot on their plate.

Some anti-gun groups are targeting a judge in San Diego, CA.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Judge Benitez, a 2004 George W. Bush appointee now on senior status, is presiding over a case challenging “several laws regulating and defining assault weapons in the state” of California. He can do this because of a rule that allows federal judges to take “related” cases. In this case, Benitez has handled other gun cases and anti-gunners haven’t like the outcome.

They cry foul when they don’t get a liberal activist judge.

But, as Ammoland points out, they weren't crying foul when the same "related cases" principal was applied to gun-related cases in New York.

That's because it was Judge Jack B. Weinstein and he consistently ruled in favor of the anti-gun lobby.

Dave Workman says you can expect that, if Judge Benitez rules in favor of the 2nd Amendment, this current challenge will be elevated to the Ninth Circuit, and possibly more.

If Judge Benitez again rules in favor of the right to keep and bear arms, expect the state to appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco, and if his ruling is upheld by a three-judge panel, expect someone to demand an en banc hearing before a full panel.

When the far left tries to guilt you about an 'imbalance' on the country's high court, remember that they would feel no such guilt if it were in their favor.

  1. It is about time (and LONG overdue) that we have a SCOTUS that actually goes by the U.S. Constitution, and rule of law AS WRITTEN..NOT liberal “progressive”, “justices” That “legislate from the bench” as the “norm” has been for many years. In MY opinion, Roberts is another that needs to be removed as he is “COMPROMISED” due to the, lets say not so “legal” way he adopted his Irish Children, and the democommunists “found out ” about it and use this a “leverage’ to make him vote the “way they want” with the THREAT of exposing his actions, and will deport his children if he doesn’t “behave” and vote the way they want.
    THAT my friends is how we ended up with obungholecare shoved down out throats. (as well as other “laws”) that were (lets say), not really “constitutional”.
    I cannot understand this..If I can read this reported on the internet, why hasn’t something been done? (again the “double standards” at work)
    More corruption in the “swamp” and “coverups”.

  2. Yeah, AIN’T it GREAT? . . . Now I get to watch SNOWFLAKES melt in GRAND fashion (and SCREAM in AGONY as well!). My, AIN’T life GRAND? About as good as a funny SITCOM. Life is GOOD. One HAPPY Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  3. There really is nothing to rule on or debate about.
    The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States as interpreted by the US Supreme Court plainly states that it is the RIGHT (not privilege) of the Citizens to own and bear firearms. The Constitution does NOT limit the number nor does it limit the type of firearm that the Citizen may own.
    Further this right is NOT conferred upon us by the Constitution, but merely codified as a God Given Right that is ACKNOWLEDGED by the United States Government in the Constitution.

  4. If gun laws worked NY,CA,and Chicago would be the safest places in America. The truth gun laws have never hurt the criminal only the law bidding gun owners. With the current upheaval in our country why would anyone want to take away a persons right to protect their families and home.People in CA have sown to the wind now they will reap the whirlwind. Example, brown outs because they don’t want any more power plants,wildfires because of EPA and poor forest management.They have spent themselves into bankruptcy and now want the rest of us to bail them out.The liberal ideas have gotten them in the state they are in.When will the people inCA. vote these idiots out? That is the only hope the citizens have
