Breaking: Major Gun Rights Court Victory!

(Before It's News)

Fellow Conservative,

When one of the most liberal Appeals Courts likens a gun control regime to Jim Crow, you know it's a big deal.

The DC Court of Appeals has declined to rehear a case and upheld its previous ruling that overturned many of the District of Columbia’s gun control regulations.

These regulations have been determined to be unconstitutional.

The case was brought by Dick Heller, the same DC resident who fought Washington DC’s handgun ban and won a major Supreme Court victory in Heller v District of Columbia.

This case is being called Heller II and the liberal DC Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling is truly ground breaking.

They ruled that it is unconstitutional for a state to

(1) Force residents to pass a written test before being allowed to own a gun;

(2) Limit gun owners to just one gun purchase a month;

(3) Force gun owners to re-register their guns every three years;

(4) Force gun owners to bring their guns into the police department for inspection.

This is huge. For example, almost ONE in FIVE Americans live in states that limit them to just one handgun purchase a month. They live under tyranny.

Meanwhile, you have Democrats across the country trying to impose Jim Crow-style written tests on gun owners, forcing them to jump through hoops to exercise a fundamental Constitutional right.

Here’s the problem. Because Justice Scalia passed away, there is no way that the Supreme Court can take this Appeals Court ruling and apply it nation wide. The first Heller case was a 5-4 decision. Without Scalia, it’s a tie decision.

In fact, if Justice Kennedy sides with the liberals, which he often does, they can overturn this case and force terrible gun control on the entire country. Many have said that Kennedy has regretted siding with Scalia on Heller. If the Supreme Court takes this case, they could reverse everything we have fought for!

Don’t let them squander this victory! FaxBlast Congress and DEMAND they do everything in their implement to expand this ruling outlaw these unconstitutional gun control regulations nationwide!

This is the unfortunate truth of post-Scalia America. Even with our victories, we will never be closer to complete defeat.

Congress has the ability to codify this ruling and make it apply nationwide. With a single vote, they could make sure that gun owners’ rights are permanently and completely protected.

This was settled law. Democrats tried to force people to pass tests to exercise constitutional rights in the Jim Crow South and it was ruled unconstitutional. You can't limit a Constitutional right to only those who can pass an arbitrary test. Well, those same racist policies have been rebranded and co-opted by the gun control movement.

I used to live in New Jersey where they treated citizens like criminals just for asking for permission to own a gun. Now that I’ve moved out of New Jermany and into Free America, I see the policies I fled spreading across the nation.

The DC Circuit Court of Appeals is the second most powerful court in the nation. If this case had been decided last year, we’d be celebrating another major Supreme Court victory and reading another pithy Scalia majority opinion.

But with Scalia’s passing, there is no path forward for gun rights on the Supreme Court. The numbers aren’t there.

If nothing happens, then this ruling remains limited to just the District of Columbia and the 54 million other Americans living under these repressive gun control regulations will continue to suffer.

We cannot give up. We cannot surrender ourselves and allow the gun control movement to gain any ground!

Force Congress to expand the DC Appeals Court ruling and put a stop to these onerous and unconstitutional gun control regulations nationwide!
