Supreme Court won’t hear case on assault weapons ban

The federal assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and some states haven’t waited around for the federal government to re-implement it. Connecticut and New York have since implemented bans on assault weapons such as the AR-15 and AK-47, and the Supreme Court has announced it won’t hear cases challenging those state bans. What does the Supreme Court’s non-action mean for state gun control? Legal and media analyst, Lionel, of Lionel Media joins ‘News with Ed’. He says by not acting, the court is telling the states that they have the ability to limit access to certain types of weapons.

    When will it end?!! If these NRA-loving, white xenophobe gun owners want to legally murder someone, they should do what we progressives do and get abortions! Fetuses don't count because they cannot vote (D) at voting booths… therefore clump of cells. Shalom.

    Going after assault weapons is how you abolish militias… Our jewish masters are attempting to to tell us what guns we will be allowed to fight them off with.

    The value of my saiga ak 74 has freaking skyrocketed since 2009. Stop trying to get me to sell it to fund two ARs.

    bring it back for what? Everyone who has one now, would be grandfathered in. Why? because of all the shit they had to do to get one. so this ban will do absolutely nothing with the few actual assault rifles that are available for civs.

    Why do we need weapons? Because, evil resides in the human heart. Therefore weapons will always exist. Why ban weapons from ordinary people? Because the concept of government is always based on evil.

    Much more crime is carried out with handguns, yet the elites are focused on "assault rifles." They have an agenda, no doubt.

    When are these prats gonna get that the government will never take away or infringe on the 2nd amendment, we all fear it but if we look at what they have actually done it's been little to none, vague threats from liberals and idiotic bills that hit the floor and are shot down almost immediately, and now more than ever the gov. understands that we need that not only for histories sake but to protect our love ones from crazy Isis loving trash and anyone else who wants to come and do us harm. Anyone care to disagree?

    Because they're at the AR-15 give away. We need more assault rifles in the hands of civilians.

    Hand gun – Personal Protection
    Rifle – Hunting/Sport Killing Animals
    Assualt Rifle – I think it's name speaks for itself. There were no assault rifles around when the 2nd amendment was written. Besides, the second amendment was written for slave patrols, not for over compensating paranoid delusional cowards.

    The USA's Supreme Court is so corrupt and in the pockets of the USA's gun manufactures, MIC and corporate-tyrants.

    Fuck off Ed, you're wrong on this issue. You're gonna need a lot more psyop mass shootings to get a ban on the scary rifles that make you pee your pants and curl up in the fetal position. The founders would have bitch slapped you, you tyrannical stooge.
