SCOTUS Justices Make DANGEROUS Arguments

Human nature can be a very strange thing. Very strange indeed. I mean, how often do you watch what other people say or do and just shake your head because it’s… well… insane.

For example, there is a tendency for people to outright reject new information on a topic simply because it disagrees with what they already think about a topic. Another weird human tendency is for people who clearly have no knowledge about a subject to believe that they’re qualified to make decisions on that subject that affect other people.

(As a side note, we should work to be careful that we aren’t doing either of these things.)

Unfortunately, for us (meaning legal gun owners like you and me), there are certain justices on the Supreme Court Of The United States who are making both of those mistakes. Which has the potential to make the world a more dangerous place. Chris Enloe writes,

Supreme Court Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ketanji Brown Jackson demonstrated their incredible misunderstanding of bump stocks this week.

Enloe continues:

At oral arguments, Justices Kagan and Jackson repeated claims that bump stocks modify firearms to fire hundreds of bullets per second.

Jackson claimed the “function” of a bump stock-modified rifle is to fire “800 rounds a second,” later asserting the device “automatically allows for 800 rounds to be released.” Sotomayor, meanwhile, posited that bump stocks allow a rifle “to shoot 400 to 700 or 800 rounds of ammunition.”

Now, look, Justices Jackson, Kagan, and Sotomayor, may have viewpoints on guns (and many other subjects) that I don’t agree with them about, but if we’re going to have a discussion about these types of things, then, we need to be having those discussions based on facts, not based on hysterical and completely nonsensical fantasies. And that’s exactly what these kinds of bizarre statements about bump stocks shooting 48,000 bullets per minute are: absolute nonsense.

If these people can’t deal with reality, then, they are making decisions for all of us that have very real and dangerous potential consequences.

After all, if you think that gravity doesn’t exist, you may step off of a cliff and find out in a really unpleasant way. And we don’t the United States going over that cliff.
