Brett Kavanaugh just got one warning that is bad news for his future

Brett Kavanaugh and the rest of the Supreme Court justices are facing a major decision.

But before they reach a ruling on this high-profile case, the justices received the shock of their lives.

That’s because Brett Kavanaugh just got one warning that is bad news for his future.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear a ruling on a case involving an obscure New York City law prohibiting transportation of firearms.

Court watchers agreed the justices took the case because they wanted to establish that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms extends outside the home.

Rhode Island Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse filed a brief arguing the court should leave the anti-gun law in place.

Whitehouse warned that if the Supreme Court expanded gun rights, Democrats would pack the court with additional liberal justices to make sure conservatives never won another case again.

The Daily Caller reports:

Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island filed a legal brief before the Supreme Court in a challenge to New York City’s gun transportation regulations, advancing a broad indictment of the Roberts Court itself as he urged the justices to turn away the NRA-backed case.

The brief, which follows back-to-back mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, accuses the justices of delivering partisan decisions for monied Republican interests while warning of lasting damage to the Supreme Court’s legitimacy.

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it. Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics,’” Whitehouse wrote, alluding to court-packing measures that have gained traction in progressive circles. “Particularly on the urgent issue of gun control, a nation desperately needs it to heal.”

The case pertains to an ordinance, since amended, regulating gun transportation in New York City. The ordinance authorized licensed gun owners to carry firearms to and from gun ranges, and forbade the removal of firearms from city limits. The plaintiffs are city residents who wish to transport their firearms to vacation homes for self-defense and to shooting competitions outside the five boroughs.

This brief is aimed at Chief Justice John Roberts.

Roberts is an institutionalist who cares about what the liberal media writes about the court’s reputation.

Whitehouse is trying to bully Roberts into voting with the four liberal justices to support gun control and prevent Democrats from going nuclear on the Supreme Court.

    Infringement is still infringement liberty isn’t free.Japan sounds like the place for you.

    This isn’t right, it isn’t mandatory to own a gun in Sweden. They may teach shooting and safety at a young age, hunting is popular.
    They do not have the lowest incidence of murder either, although it is low.
    Sweden does have a relatively high rate of gun ownership, however every gun requires a separate license and there must be a legitimate reason to own it, and self defence is only legitimate by court order. So very different to America when you compare all items, not just cherry pick and make up fake news.

    If dems get in the W/H, they will try to “fundamentally transform” America – watching the 2020 crowd, it looks like they will turn the U.S. into a Venezuela. Packing the court is neither new nor achievable if the repubs stay in power but it does confirm what the dems consider the court’s role – they believe it should legislate from the bench according to the tenets of the democrat party. Another indication that the dems no longer embrace nor are a part of traditional America.

    Jemb…..they want to add justices to the court to make it 12 instead of 9.

  5. John Galt says:

    Roosevelt tried to pack the Supreme Court and failed. Neither side is going to be allowed to do that.

    Vasu:
    Why don’t you move to a country where firearms are prohibited ie Japan where a man beat his family to death with a shovel and maybe we should outlaw shovels as well and hopefully a member of your family will do the same to you. As far as I’m concerned, if that happens, good riddance.

    With a name like Vasu Murti, you must be from a foreign country (maybe Turkey or some Arab country) because your long winded bunch of lies did not resonate with me. We need to strengthen the 2nd Amendment; not weaken it.

  8. Bob says:

    You are correct. The thing that frosts my butt is the freaking RINOs always vote to put liberal justices on the court and will not fight for a conservative. The exception being the last one (Kavanaugh). RINO Lindsey Graham surprised me to no end by fighting to get him through the Senate. The woman (Blasey Ford) was a Democrat activist who made up a bunch of lies about a sexual assault that supposedly happened when they were teenagers to try and stop Kavanaugh, but this did not work this time largely due to RINO Graham. Now Graham has collaborated with that liar from Connecticut Richard (Da Nang) Blumenthal to try and get a “Red Flag and gun control” law passed. We are not fooled this time “Amnesty” Lindsey Graham. We know you miss that weasel John McCain, but we do not because he was a traitor with his “thumbs down” crap with Chucky Schumer to keep ACA (ObamaCare) from being repealed.

  9. Bob says:

    Whitehorse is only one person and a Democrat at that. Right now the Senate has a majority of Senators from the Republican Party. So all he is doing is blowing smoke. If I were a member of the Supreme Court, I would vote with my conscious and the 2nd Amendment. There has to be a law against Senators blackmailing the Supreme Court to rule in their favor. Maybe Chief Justice Roberts needs to Exercise his authority and vote with the Conservative Justices to show Whitehorse’s A– that the court can not be intimidated by anyone. Do I expect this to happen – No, because Obama intimidated Roberts some years ago and Roberts changed his mind on ACA (ObamaCare). Roberts re-wrote the law to make the mandate a tax instead of a penalty as the Democrat author intended it to be. This was clearly a violation of Roberts’ oath of office.

    You’re one of those self anointed idiots aren’t you?
    All the racism started with YOUR Obama and all the violence that is coming from you lefties is a result of Obama and centuries of racism.
    History disproves your lying narrative.

  11. Jemb says:

    How do they expect to pack the Supreme Court with Liberals while the President is a Republican?

  12. Will T says:

    So let them talk and tell everyone their plans. The more people hear their insanity, the less likely that they will ever be voted back into control.
    I think that we are witnessing the implosion of the party. By the time Trump finishes his second term, the mental institutions will be overloaded with former Democrats.

  13. Roger D Mann says:

    Maybe they should be in control before they say what they might do, at the moment all they can do is talk!

  14. tracy says:

    I have read many of your responses. people saying we must be Christians, and then make racist comments, very uneducated folks out there. just think about what you are saying. the hate has to stop. one way streets are just that. they go one way only. try having a good solid conversation with anybody on the dems side and you get nothing but hands in your face. stick together republicans, dems will bring this great usa down if they get there way.
