Big Gun Case at the Supreme Court-Good Call By SCOTUS
No not the straw man we call out here every once in a while. In brief-The gun purchase law that applies to Federally licensed gun dealers and anyone in a private transaction that knows of a criminal intent. Which also points out why we need national universal FFL registration of most guns. And how the current SCOTUS is upholding regulation even as they have struck down a couple near bans.
The Court majority, in an opinion written by Elena Kagan, found that Abramski’s entire argument rested on only one true fact, namely that he was able to pass a background check at the point of sale. But to find in favor of Abramski’s larger argument, according to Kagan and the majority, “would undermine — indeed, for all important purposes, would virtually repeal — the gun law’s core provisions.” In other words, this case really was about whether or not the government could regulate firearm transactions at all, not just about the behavior of a particular individual at the time he purchased a gun.
