JUST IN: Supreme Court Releases Major Second Amendment Ruling – EVOL

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday released a major decision on gun rights, giving court observers an opportunity to reflect on how the body, now stacked with conservative justices, plans to regulate challenges to the 2nd Amendment.

In a split 8-1 decision, the high court ruled that convicted individuals under domestic violence restraining orders (DVRO) are not entitled to hold firearms after gun rights activists challenged a federal law implementing the restriction. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the majority, stated, “[W]e conclude only this: An individual found by a court to pose a credible threat to the physical safety of another may be temporarily disarmed consistent with the Second Amendment,” Fox News reported.

In November, the court heard oral arguments in a case where the Biden administration sought to defend the law from a challenge by Zackey Rahimi, a Texas man under a DVRO who argued he was entitled to keep his firearms for self-defense after they were confiscated following a 2019 physical confrontation with his ex-girlfriend. The court’s ruling in U.S. v. Rahimi could have major implications for not only gun ownership, but also the presidential election.
