It seems the outnumbered and outgunned Democrats in the Senate don’t like their station…

And they’ve taken to threatening the Supreme Court of the United States in order to try and get what they want.

What do they want?

Well, they want the SCOTUS to uphold the New York City law that forbids citizens from transporting handguns ANYWHERE except to the firing ranges that are located in the city…

Meaning a gun owner could NOT transport their gun outside city limits to a second home – their gun has to stay inside their home and can only be brought OUT if the owner is going to fire it at one of only SEVEN shooting ranges that are inside the city limits.

The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association argues that this violates 2nd Amendment rights…

And furthermore, are arguing that the city’s Suggestion of Mootness filing (which would require the Court to dismiss the case) is unconstitutional. According to them, a party cannot moot a case as it would manipulate the judicial system.

So, the SCOTUS may still hear the case…

And this is making Dems angry and scared that they’ll rule against the city and prevent other cities from passing similar gun laws that restrict the  2nd Amendment.

The Whine: How Dems THINK Progress Happens

So…

What does a Dem do when they’re angry and scared that they’re going to lose power?

They whine.

In a brief filed by five prominent Dem Senators—Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), Richard Durbin (D-Ill.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) – this is EXACTLY what they did…

And then to add insult to injury – they threw a threat in for good measure.

What are they doing?

They’re accusing the SCOTUS of partisan decisions – pointing to the fact that there are FIVE sitting conservative justices to FOUR liberal justices to justify their claim.

The fact is, the SCOTUS has operated this way for more than 200 years.

This isn’t new…

It’s just not in the Dems favor right now – so they’re whining about it.

In the brief, they attack the 2nd amendment and they attack Brett Kavanaugh – as if the man hasn’t been through enough…

But it’s their whining that takes center stage…

“Today, fifty-five percent of Americans believe the Supreme Court is ‘mainly motivated by politics’ (up five percent from last year); fifty-nine percent believe the Court is ‘too influenced by politics’; and a majority now believes the ‘Supreme Court should be restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’ Quinnipiac Poll, supra note 2. To have the public believe that the Court’s pattern of outcomes is the stuff of chance (or “the requirements of the law,” Obergefell, 135 S. Ct. at 2612 (Roberts, C.J., dissenting)) is to treat the “intelligent man on the street,” Gill v. Whitford, No. 16-1161, Oral Arg. Tr. at 37:18-38:11 (Oct. 3, 2017), as a fool.”

Here’s the bottom line…

Who cares what Americans “believe?” It comes down to what is CONSTITUTIONAL and if the SCOTUS is adhering to the guidelines set forth by that most important document.

FACTS Are What Matter – Not FEELINGS!

“Believe” is another word for “feel” – and it’s NOT about feelings…

It’s about facts, and the Dems have none.

Which is why they’re having to resort to threats.

They closed the brief by saying, “The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.’ Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.”

A threat of restructuring?

From the party that wants to pack the court with as many justices if feels it needs to get their agenda passed through?!

They TRULY are the party of hypocrisy…

To think, these five Dems believe they have the political clout to get something like this done.

What their basically saying is, “If you don’t rule the way we want you to, we’re going to find a way to circumvent you or make your rulings going forward inconsequential.”

Yes…

These Dems are threatening to restructure the entire government in order to get their way.

This is the level they’ve sunken to…

It means they’re losing and they know it – but it’s not time to relax. A desperate animal is a DANGEROUS one.

We’ll all be waiting for the SCOTUS’s response…
