The Bible says in Psalm 146, do not put your trust in princes or a son of man, in whom there is no salvation. Well, the Supreme court completely validated that passage this last week on a host of issues. One of those being the Second Amendment.
Clarence Thomas said this past week that the court tolerates requirements/restraints on the Second Amendment that it would never allow for abortion.
The court was asked to hear a case Rogers v. Grewal which centered around a person to have a “justifiable need” for a owning a gun before a handgun permit is issued. The court rejected to hear the case.
Thomas dissented to that decision by stating that the Second Amendment is a fundamental right for, “the people to keep and bear Arms…yet in several jurisdictions throughout the country, law-abiding citizens have been barred from exercising the fundamental right to bear arms because they cannot show that they have a ‘justifiable need’ or ‘good reason’ for doing so.” He said that this was an onerous burden on a fundamental right.
He added later could you imagine the court allowing a state to enforce a law requiring a woman to provide a justifiable need before seeking an abortion. Thomas then stated. “But today, faced with a petition challenging just such a restriction on citizens’ Second Amendment rights, the Court simply looks the other way.”
I am afraid we are in for some perilous times on many freedom issues and this is just the begging. It is also a reminder to never place your trust in man but God.
