For the past few decades, gun control advocates have been demonizing guns and gun owners. But with the recent surge in first-time gun buyers, it’s become increasingly apparent that gun owners are everyday Americans who recognize the importance of being able to protect themselves and their loved ones.

And yet gun control advocates are still trying to do everything they can to put an end to civilian gun ownership. Now, especially with the Biden Administration in power, they are seeking to realize this goal through ever-expanding federal and state regulation.

At a time like this, it’s important for you to know your rights protected by the Second Amendment—and what’s being done to fight for them.

I want to make sure you get a free copy of the latest eBook from Mountain States Legal Foundation called 3 Legal Cases That Affect your Right to Bear Arms.

When you read this eBook, you’ll learn about 3 key Supreme Court cases dealing with the Second Amendment:

  • District of Columbia v. Heller – a case decided in 2008 that vindicated the individual right to keep and bear arms.
  • McDonald v. Chicago – a case decided in 2010 that focused on the Second Amendment’s application against state governments.
  • New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen – a case argued this past November that challenges New York State’s effective ban on the right of individuals to possess and carry firearms in public.

If you’re concerned about your eroding right to keep and bear arms, you’ll want to read this book. You can get your free copy by using this link: https://mslegal.org/3-legal-cases-that-affect-your-right-to-bear-arms

And don’t hesitate to share it with your family and friends. It’s critical that we get this information out to as many people as possible.

  1. Uhm, wouldn’t you want to wait until the decision is announced before writing the “New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen” section?

    Just sayin’… 🙂

      • To be concerned about any Gun Control court case is to provide standing for an agenda history has confirmed is rooted in racism and genocide.

        In other words…To provide standing for Gun Control one might as well provide standing for slave shacks, nooses, concentration camps, gas chambers and the like…Case Closed.

        • ‘Tee”


          You must be new here, Tee… 😉

        • New enough to be completely confused why a person would NOT care about Supreme Court precedent regarding gun rights. It’s one thing to be a sure t of history. But give that we live in a democracy with three coequal branches I’m flummoxed as to why this Debbie would NOT be concerned about the activities of the judicial branch.

        • t…After years of seeing the Second Amendment being batted around in courts all across America by those with an agenda rooted in racism and genocide I have the sense not to be concerned with such shenanigans that pad the pockets of lawyers and entertain gullible courtroom drama queens like you. Drama queens like you who could not define Gun Control by its history if their lives depended on it.

          Instead of saying “huh” and looking like a silly moose you should have paid attention to my “In Other Words” and fact checked it…Perhaps then you could show some concern for those throughout history who suffered unbelievable horror under Gun Control and understand the hypocrisy of giving Gun Control in any shape, matter or form standing in any US Court much less the USSC…Capice?

        • Okay yes Nazi seized guns from the Jews; I totally get it. Just still not following why this means it is a good idea to dismiss the Supreme Court. It also seems odd to abandon those like the NRA and Second Amendment Foundation who are putting good money and time into fighting these unconstitutional laws. Maybe they are even arguing these laws–such as New York’s May Issue–are racist because they discriminate against poor minorities who cannot afford to jump through all the government’s carry permit expenses. Perhaps your dismissing these important legal battles is as ignorant and flip as me dismissing your strange commentary with “huh?”

  2. I’m only here for Heller. McDonald was a crime against federalism and the third one doesn’t affect me since I don’t live in New York

    • not sure if this is a joke but do you live in the district of columbia for heller to affect you? chicago for mcdonald? the location doesn’t matter whatsoever

    • NYSRPA v. Bruen includes the possibility that SCOTUS will establish a more stringent quality of scrutiny that would open up many – if not most – existing state gun control laws to being challenged anew under that requirement. This most definitely would affect everyone in the entire nation, inside New York and out. We in California would welcome it with open arms and open up a salvo of litigation against our state’s circus world of restrictive and prohibitive laws.

      • Even if SCOTUS doesn’t establish a more stringent quality of scrutiny for gun rights, if it’s illegal for New York to have a MAY issue, it’s illegal for the likes of California and Hawaii too. This is a pretty big case.

        I personally won’t hold my breath for a changing of scrutiny level applied to 2A cases, but it would indeed be a MASSIVE win that invalidates a lot of previous cases

  3. Are we not discussing Bianchi v. Frosh? Kind of seems like a looming case which contends “assault weapon” bans are Unconstitutional might be important. Mountain States Legal seems to suggest on their website that they know about the case and they’re soliciting donations based upon the case so perhaps it should be mentioned or maybe even some support solicited.

  4. The pen is mightier then the sword when its gouged eraser deep in an eye socket.
    The right to bear arms Shall not be Infringed.
    The second amendment is the most infringed of all of Our rights.

    • My 2nd Amendment Rights will either be the Life of me or the Death of me. Either way I will die a Free Man.

  5. NY state case will have implications for cases in other states. That’s why it’s important for all Americans.

  6. NY will affect many socialist democrat run states and will dampen the cancer. God willing!

  7. I don’t understand why every single time someone brings up “key” SCOTUS gun rights decisions, they never mention Caetano v MASS. Heller and McDonald were cited, further cementing them as settled law, the justices unanimously held,

    “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding” and that “the Second Amendment right is fully applicable to the States”.

    Its a constantly ignored case, with huge implications.

    • “the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding”

      Apparently, the states that currently ban MSRs didn’t get that memo.

      I’m waiting on the NY Pistol decision, like everyone else here.

      If the rumor is true that Clarence Thomas will author the decision, he *might* deal with a lot of the other 2A infringements that some other states do.

      Since the recent BATF decision was dropped about a week ago, in which the ATF mentioned that semi-auto rifles with detachable magazines would most likely be ruled expressly constitutional, it would be super sweet if Thomas ‘rolls’ that in the ‘NY Pistol’ decision as well.

      (I can dream, anyway… 😉 )

    • Yes, you just hit on the absolute cause, but not cure, of the entire 2nd/A debate, of which there should NOT be any debate at all according to the current Case Law challenges and precedents, AND the fucking original Law Of The Land in Constitutional Stone which clearly states by virtually All subsequent challenges and resulting ‘decisions’ that…”Shall NOT Be Infringed” clearly does not permit any qualifiers, exceptions, prohibitions, or etc., with regard to possession of personal firearms, unless you are incarcerated out of society.

      So, Christopher & Geof, it took me many years to fully understand, and here’s what it comes down to. Bear (arms of course) with me…

      There are several 2nd/A SCOTUS case law precedents which on the surface firmly re-confirm the original determination of the visionary Founders’ meaning of the 2nd/A. In previous posts here I’ve listed a few. But the esoteric issue is why they had to be challenged again, and re-evaluated in the first place? As such, isn’t the Constitutional Law Of The Land supposed to be immutable and indisputable, and immune from indiscriminate agenda-based redaction and agenda based interpretations? Why all the new court challenges in the first place? What’s the purpose of having a Constitution if it is so easy to simply make new laws that effectively cancel out the original Law Of The Land? What good are laws if anyone can change them anytime their proprietary agendas suit them? That sound’s more lie a ‘proxy’ legal dictatorship?

      The reason Caetano v. MASS is ‘Ignored’ is because THAT is the way the Deep State Marxist agenda works. It’s part of their tactical take-over format to obfuscate and dismiss anything they see that might interfere with their end game. Which is unequivocally to create a so called Marxist Statist Utopia where the individual “Will Own Nothing (certainly not guns) and will like it”. And if it has to walk, talk, and squauk like a Totalitarian Regime…well that’s for the ‘good’ of all.

      With so-called ‘settled case law presedent’ there’s another one that’s not so esoteric or ignored but was so carefully re-directed in its obfuscation that these Criminal Commies actually deserve an emmy or golden globe, or some kind of bullshit recognition award for bad acting so well that it managed to blind even the ‘justice is blind’ statue. It’s called Miranda. It’s well known because Cops have to guarantee your right to remain silent by informing you of it at the time of arrest. But Miranda is More important, in reality, for ‘the rest of the story’ of also establishing in confirmation that… “Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be No rulemaking or legislation which would abrogate them.” Period!

      Okay then, So how do they ‘Get Away’ with making all these confirmed to be illegal gun control laws or even challenging the 2nd/A in courts to begin with?

      They get away with it because they have No Accountability. The have no accountability because ‘They’, the deep state Marxist Totalitarian controllers, own at this point in U.S.political power structure, the Federal LAW Enforcement management authority of the Land. It takes the form of the most corrupted Criminal Justice System since J. Edgar Hoover commited some of the worst crimes imaginable while wearing ladies underware. In the fundamentals of absolute power corruptions, Police don’t ‘police’ themselves.

      The lower politically motivated State court systems simply allow challenges for nearly any reason to ‘Proceed’ bypassing the lack of accountability or mass public censure to be passed up the chain of corruption sometimes for years all the Way to the SCOTUS who may not even hear it or kicks it back down for a ‘reset’. Instead of dismissing them out of previously established challenges and the meri-go-round keeps going and going until it gets boring and ‘old’ and nobody cares anymore about a while. You know, like the old aphorism: ‘Tell a lie long enough and it becomes the truth’. In this case, it’s ‘Ignore or obfuscate something long enough and it goes away. It’s just human nature. And these Marxists are masters at controlling it.

      Alright, most of us can get that the Justice system in this country is getting a bit out of control to put it mildly. to be blunt, it is a fucking Elitist Racist Supremacy system operated as a Mercenary business for profit to milk the Taxpayers and enslave the populate without any real regard for rights, fairness, or Due Process.

      But WAIT? Then what’s the use of a book like this for these three court cases?

      Not much. Except that maybe it might draw more people off their vidoe games and into the most important arena of the fight to preserve ouor Amereican Libertarian heritage. The problem with it as nuanced in this comment is that the whole corrupted courts system is the problem in and of itself. And you can’t keep regurgitating the same challenge issues over and over while ‘They’ laugh all the way to their legislation sessions to make MORE Gun Control Laws, WTF good is THAT? You are simply playing with yourself?

      Buh, buh, buh, But…well, what are we supposed to do then?

      The Founders understood that any political governing system is potentially corruptible due to flawed humanity. Their ultimate solution was an Egalitarian Libertarian Constitutionally framed Republic with a ‘by consent of the people’ representative body of government that can be readily changed or removed by a Democratic process based on solely the majorty ‘will of the people’. It wasn’t perfect, but in view of other ‘systems’ of societies, it was pretty well thought out and way ahead of its time.

      But as we see, over time, certain political philosophies and systems figured out ways to
      and the Marxists figured out long ago that a relatively open Free market Capitalist country could be more easily taken advantage of in terms of political power acquisition than a Royalist or Dictatorship government. All you had to do is ‘Market’ the people, re-direct their mentalities, play on their human ‘forces of nature’ gullibilities, with false promises and utopian delusions, and you could literally take over a country?

      In a Nation where Votes really count, all you had to do was to ‘Sell’ enough propaganda through clever mind-controlling brainwashing to bribe them into voting for your political agenda, and you eventually use the system against itself! It’s much easier to ‘get things politically accomplished in a free Country like America. Especially if you have no moral restrictions on your evil determinations by degenerating into a state of incessent lying, cheating, manipulating, and stealing America’s way of life.

      That is how Marxism infiltrated our Country and eventually got to where it is today.

      Lets face it. The biggest flaw in America is that it’s way too easy to control the hearts and minds of voters. if you have enough money you can control the media, buy politicians as easy as buying a case of beer, along with the weekend special sale on government officials, as well. Then what’s to do about it? Or should I say IS there even anything we CAN do about it?

      Well, a while back in 1909 when people still thought that violations of your rights was actually a criminal offense, not something you typically litigate a kneejerk lawsuit for, or file a complaint to the ‘proper authorities’ which were often ‘associated’ with or involved somehow in the issue itself, the Congress got together and passed USCC 18-241-242 Deprivation of Rights Federal Criminal Felony LAW. Making it a serious crime to violate your Constitutional Rights!

      So there it is! 18-241 provides that even a “…Conspiracy to violate your rights to injure, oppress, threaten or intimidate any citizen in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or priviledge secured to him by the Constitution or Laws of the United States shall be fined not more than $10,000. or imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both, and if death resultes they shall be subject to imprisonment for any term, or for life.”

      This means that any lawmaker or legislator who even discusses, let alone promotes, any gun control laws are committing a felony under this statute! But WAIT, 18-242 goes further and to the point. It says: “Whoever, under colour of law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom willfully subjects the inhabitants of any State…to the Deprivation of any Rights, Privileges or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or Laws of the United States…shall be fined to not more than $10,000. or imprisoned not more than 10 years or both, and if death results they shall be subject to imprisonment for any term.”

      Well WTF? That’s pretty obviously clear to me and a couple lawyers I ran this down to a while back.

      If you subscribe to the 2nd/A stating that “…the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed” Means no shit-ass ifs, ands, or butts, or any gun control laws or any restrictive prohibitions at all, and is re-enforced and confirmed by subsequent case law presedent, which certifies that attempts at these violations clearly amounts to a Deprivation of Rights crime. A ‘lawmaker’ or ‘rulemaker’ Cannot Make Laws, that violate Constitutional Rights Laws! Or they go to Prison! At least that’s what it says?

      Why are these criminal NOT being indicted and charged? There’s really no NEED to challenge it in court anymore, is there??? They commit the crime, they pay the fine or do the time?

      There’s a ‘remedy’ solution right now? Forget about starting lawsuites that take years, the next time a legislator conspires to force gun control upon your area or try to make a law lets just march down to the County Sheriff’s office and file an official criminal complaint. The Sherriff should then submit a copy it to the State agency specializing in Rights Violations who should carry it over to the federal prosecutor’s office in your State. If you have an attorney’s office do this you will know it will at least be ‘delivered’.

      Chances are the prosecuter won’t return your lawyer’s letter or call. If S/he does, they will say either we have to think about it (for a few more months) or make up some other nonsence why they don’t think they have a case, and ‘decline’ to prosecute, which is their ‘discretionary’ privilege to do in their job description protocols.

      And That is how it goes, bros and girls.

      Now that doesn’t happen to ALL Deprivation of Rights cases. The Prosecuters had no problem with going ahead with charging the Floyd Case cops with 18-241-242 even after they already been convicted of murder charges. Of course, that was a high-level politically expedient case with ALL ABOARD for political agenda work!

      So that’s why it is so unmercifully difficult to keep them from killing our gun ownership rights with incessant Gun Control Laws, even though they are Constitutionally illegal.

      We’ve reached a point where the standard Judicial System is so corrupted that it fails to protect the average citizen. And there’s nothing we can do about it except one last stand…

      Instead of worrying about reading Court challenges at this point, The time and effort would be better spent working on political campain operations in your location to maximize voter turn out.

      Six months goes by fast to the next midterms. Start now and do everything you can so we take back the Congress at least and stop the steal of our rights.

      Not removing this current Marxist evil this coming November is unthinkable.

  8. This book is jumping the gun. New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen probably will be decided on the pro-gun side. The problem is we don’t know what the decision will be. Will it be restricted to only NY? Will it declare some form of carry must be available nationwide? Will premitless carry be mandated everywhere? Will is say 2A is a first tier right, and strict scrutiny should be applied by courts reviewing it? Might as well talk about bump stock/AWB/magazine/ personally made firearms/arm brace lawsuits that are or will be bouncing around various courts without resolution.
