Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett Slaps Down Biden Admin — 'Shall Means Shall'

Reports from the Supreme Court Monday revealed that Justice Amy Coney Barrett has called for Illinois authorities to provide her with additional information pertaining to an appeal coming up from the Seventh Circuit Court which she oversees.

Second Amendment advocates are challenging a Naperville, Illinois ordinance that bars the sale or possession of a bevy of common semi-automatic rifles and magazines. The city must respond by noon on May 8th.

According to The Washington Examiner, The National Association for Gun Rights (NAGR) has argued that the city ordinance violates the precedent set by the 2022 Supreme Court Ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen which overturned an unconstitutional "proper cause" requirement for New York concealed carry permits. The organization has applied for an emergency injunction from the high court.

Breitbart News reported the text of the application which states, “The [district] court went off the rails and invented out of whole cloth the ‘particularly dangerous weapon’ doctrine. Under the district court’s new doctrine, weapons that a court judges to be ‘particularly dangerous’ are unprotected by the Second Amendment.”


The NAGR added that the district court, "refused to address the Heller/Bruen rule that a categorical ban of commonly held arms is unconstitutional,” the group asserted that rather than questioning the ruling the court simply “ignored it.”

President of the NAGR Dudley Brown told the Examiner, "We’re thankful the Supreme Court is taking the Second Amendment rights of Illinoisans seriously."

In a press release regarding the case, the NAGR wrote, "NAGR filed for an emergency application for an Injunction Pending Appellate Review to the United States Supreme Court on Wednesday, April 26. If granted, the injunction would grant emergency temporary relief for gun owners in Naperville, namely gun store owner Robert Bevis, whose livelihood has been severely impacted by both state and local “Assault Weapons” bans. Bevis, NAGR’s plaintiff, faces the loss of his business if relief is not swiftly granted."

Brown added, "Any ban on so-called ‘assault weapons’ is plainly unconstitutional, and now it is on the city of Naperville to explain the legal justification for their ban. Of course, there isn’t any. The bans were ludicrous from the start, and if Illinois had any sense, they would wave the white flag now and save us all some time."
