Supreme Court Ruling On Gay Rights Just Reinforced The Constitutional Carry Debate

Supreme Court Ruling On Gay Rights Just Reinforced The Constitutional Carry Debate, Am I wrong?

The Supreme Court handed down their ruling that couples of the same gender now have the right to get married in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. This Monumental decision trumps gay marriage bans in 14 states.

With same-sex couples already signing on with the government to tie the knot in 36 states and D.C. SCOTUS’s ruling on Friday means the remaining 14 states will have to immediately cease enforcing their state bans on same-sex marriage. This strike of the gavel concludes about 20 years of Supreme Court litigation over gay rights.

The Highest Court in the land used Section 1 of the 14th Amendment to solidify their argument..

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Utilization of the Constitution in such a specific manner the court is saying that the Due Process Clause extends to “certain personal choices central to individual dignity and autonomy”. So the geographical barriers between the states are omitted as far as what you can and can’t do. Today these states must mesh together using this same “due process clause” that the almighty Supreme Court of the United States just applied to gay marriage and do away with any ban on carrying guns on U.S. soil.

So today we can carry our guns in any state without breaking any laws, because the Supreme Law of the land just granted us the right to do so again. Our defense is our constitutional rights under the 14th and 2nd Amendment.

Are You Awake Yet?
