The Supreme Court has once again declined to review the Illinois law banning semi-automatic rifles and Standard-capacity magazines.

Now, why did the Supreme Court refuse to hear this case?

Justice Thomas expressed his disappointment in the denial, emphasizing the importance of the issues at hand.

In his statement, Justice Thomas said, “The AR-15 is the most popular semi-automatic rifle in America and is therefore undeniably in common use today.”

He criticized the Seventh Circuit’s decision, stating that it “illustrates why this Court must provide more guidance on which weapons the Second Amendment covers.”

He pointed out the Court’s past recognition that the Second Amendment extends to “all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”

However, he noted that there’s still a lack of a comprehensive framework for evaluating restrictions on types of weapons.

Thomas didn’t hold back, calling out the Seventh Circuit’s logic.

He said, “The AR-15 is a civilian, not military, weapon. No army in the world uses a service rifle that is only semiautomatic.”

He also highlighted that Illinois’ ban is “highly suspect because it broadly prohibits common semiautomatic firearms used for lawful purposes.”

So, what does this mean for our Second Amendment rights?

Well, by refusing to hear this case, the Supreme Court has basically left the Seventh Circuit’s decision in place, at least for now.

This means Illinois can continue enforcing its ban on ‘semi-auto rifles,’ which concerns me because it sets a precedent that could gas up other states to enact their own “assault weapon” bans because they’ll see it as open season on Semi-Auto Rifles and Standard Capacity Magazines.

Whatever you do, don’t ever let anyone tell you the Second Amendment doesn’t protect your right to own an AR15.

If there is one gun on this planet that the Second Amendment protects, it is absolutely the AR-15.

Not because the AR-15 was specifically what the framers had in mind when the Second Amendment was drafted, but because the framers were thinking about how to protect the people’s right to own the most effective tool to preserve this free state and protect themselves.

At that time, that tool was the musket, and today, that musket is the AR-15.

So Yes, AR-15s are Protected by the Second Amendment.

“A Regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

It didn’t say only handguns; it said “ARMS.”
