You’re right to keep him and bear arms has been under assault for generations.
And one pending Supreme Court case could determine the fate of firearms in the United States as we know it.
This Supreme Court case will decide the fate of the gun accessories you will be allowed to have in America.
The Second Amendment is under constant assault
Citizens of the United States used to hold the Bill of Rights in high regard.
They used to know that our alienable rights were necessary for Americans to enjoy a free and prosperous society.
Many Americans still to this day believe that constitutional rights like the right to free speech are essential components of our republic.
But for some reason, the Second Amendment has been in the crosshairs for many in our nation for decades.
The right to keep and bear arms is the teeth of the Bill of Rights.
With the Second Amendment, all the other rights would exist as there would be a means to ensure those rights are enforced.
So, as we’ve seen over the past couple of generations, Democrats are doing everything they can to strip law-abiding American citizens of the right to keep and bear arms.
Because they know once the American populace is disarmed, they will be subject to crime and primed for subjugation by the government.
Because when you don’t have the right to own a firearm, you don’t have a legitimate claim to defend yourself against the government or criminals.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen some of the most significant legal cases in recent memory go for Democrats regarding the Second Amendment.
But of all the losses that gun owners have had in recent years, this case could really decide the fate of firearms in the United States as we know it.
Right to own accessories?
Many of us still remember back in 2019 when Trump pressured federal agencies to pan bump stocks.
What made this unique is the fact that a bump stock is a firearm accessory and one that tens of thousands owned by law-abiding citizens.
But this Trump Administration regulatory action by the feds has raised legal eyebrows ever since and has been in legal disputes ever since.
And back in January, the ban on bump stocks was overturned by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
As Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod wrote for the 5th Circuit’s decision, “The definition of ‘machinegun’ as set forth in the National Firearms Act and Gun Control Act does not apply to bump stocks.”
But, as you can imagine, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia had a different ruling on the regulatory action and sided with the Federal government.
In the court ruling by a majority of left-leaning judges, the D.C. Court of Appeals ruled, “Under the best interpretation of the statute, a bump stock is a self-regulating mechanism that allows a shooter to shoot more than one shot through a single pull of the trigger. As such, it is a machine gun under the National Firearms Act and Gun Control Act.”
Well, this split has caught the eye of the Supreme Court.
And the Supreme Court has agreed to take this case in next year’s session.

Time will tell to see how they rule, but one can only hope they side with law-abiding citizens’ right to have accessories on firearms.
