Another case regarding the Second Amendment rights of Americans was just brought to question in the Maryland Supreme Court.

While many Democrats support the ban of this right, Republicans are strongly against any infringement of the Constitution.

Americans across the country are in major opposition to this new decision because one of the most prized amendments to the Constitution is being questioned.

In a 10-4 vote, the court decided that assault rifles are not protected under the Second Amendment.

The Daily Caller reported:

“Writing for the majority, Judge Robert King, a Clinton appointee, argued that the Second Amendment does not protect people owning “weapons of war.”  His opinion starts out by listing recent mass public shootings that have used AR-15-type rifles, guns that he also refers to as “military-style rifles,” in their attacks.”

The opposition is arguing that just the ability to own a weapon such as an AR-15 promotes the idea of mass terror and that as a direct result, mass shootings have occurred.

This is simply not true.

The opinion of the court was upholding a decision based on inaccurate facts and assumptions.

The Daily Caller reported:

“The opinion argues that attacks using large capacity magazines and those using assault weapons are the most deadly and that they are used most frequently used weapons.  Yet, none of these points are correct.  King’s decision shows a real lack of understanding about guns and crime.”

Democratic judges across the country are making decisions like this based on nothing but lies.

For example, the AR-15 rifle was credited in the decision to be a weapon of war, when in fact, it is a hunting rifle primarily.

The Daily Caller reported:

“But people continue to ask: Why do people need a semiautomatic AR-15 to go out and kill deer? The answer is simple: Because it is a hunting rifle. It has just been made to look like a military weapon.The AR-15 uses essentially the same bullets as small-game hunting rifles, fires at the same rapidity, and does the same damage.The .223-inch rounds used by the AR-15 are actually small compared with what is usually used to hunt deer. Indeed, many states prohibit using bullets of that size for deer hunting. The concern is that the animal will suffer from its wounds rather than experiencing a quick death.”

Furthermore, the assumption that automatic weapons are the ones used in mass shootings is simply inaccurate as well.

The Daily Caller reported:

“The Circuit court decision gives the false impression that the “assault weapons” used in Orlando and San Bernardino, Calif., are commonly used in mass public shootings. My book, The War on Guns, shows such weapons were used exclusively in only 12 percent of the mass public shootings from President Barack Obama’s 2009 inauguration through the end of 2015. In another 12 percent of shootings, a rifle was used in conjunction with a handgun or a shotgun.  Sixty-eight percent of the attacks just used handguns.”

It only goes to show how much of an impact the appointment and confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court could have on our country, given his very pro-Second Amendment views.

What are your thoughts?

Do you believe Americans have the right to own heavier guns like the AR-15?
