Senate Democrats threaten the Supreme Court with retribution over upcoming Second Amendment ruling

August 13, 2019

  There is a New York Second Amendment case making its way to the Supreme Court and some Senate Democrats have a message for the highest court in the land: either this decision comes down in their favor, which of course means it comes down against the Second Amendment, or they will remake the court by restructuring it. The idea of packing the court has been gaining momentum on the alt-left but now the Senate Democrats are brazenly threatening the Supreme Court.

  Here is more:

Several high-profile Senate Democrats warned the Supreme Court in pointed terms this week that it could face a fundamental restructuring if justices do not take steps to “heal” the court in the near future.

The ominous and unusual warning was delivered as part of a brief filed Monday in a case related to a New York City gun law. Sens. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, Richard Durbin, D-Ill., and Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., referenced rulings by the court’s conservative majority in claiming it is suffering from some sort of affliction which must be remedied.

“The Supreme Court is not well. And the people know it,” the brief said. “Perhaps the Court can heal itself before the public demands it be ‘restructured in order to reduce the influence of politics.'”

  This is truly remarkable! I cannot recall a party in a lawsuit making a threat like this to any court before. I do remember Debbie Wasserman Schultz threatened the Capitol Police Chief but I think even that pales on comparison to trying to intimidate the court because you know you are standing on shaky Constitutional grounds.

  Ironically these Democrats are accusing the Supreme Court of partisanship and is simply asking for more partisanship in the opposite direction, proving they only disapprove of the perceived partisanship because it is not in their favor–but they intend to change that…

    In the early years of the Roosevelt administration, he got tired of dealing with the left over conservatives from before and he lead a campaign to increase the SCOTUS to 15 members. He had a Dem House and a Dem Senate, but nothing came of it.
    It doesn’t surprise me that the radical left is trying to take over again.

      I am fearful they will get away with it this time if they are in power. If I were Trump I would come out with a plan to pack the court so I could get all the Dems on record as being opposed to this type of dictatorial takeover of the court.

    There is no limit… I would have thought they would have learned when Reed got rid of the filibuster over Judicial nominees… what goes around comes around..
    If we thought the last election was critical, the one coming up even more so.. We lose this one, we lose it all IMO..

      It is scary to see how far left the Dems are going in this campaign, but it is even scarier that this seems to be what mainstream Dem voters want! Hopefully they are going to push it too far and it will backfire on them!
