Who is appointing the judges sacrificing children to gun violence?

Maryland’s handgun licensing law has been struck down by a federal appeals court - AP

"Maryland passed a law "which was passed in 2013 in the aftermath of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, laid out a series of necessary steps for would-be gun purchasers: completing four hours of safety training that includes firing one live round, submitting fingerprints and passing a background check, being 21 and residing in Maryland."

Which appeals court judges over-turned this law? Who appointed these judges? Which Supreme Court ruling did the appeals court justices cite? Who appointed the Supreme Court Justices that ruled to allow guns to be carried in public? Why did Alex Jones claim that Sandy Hook shooting was a fraud? Follow along with this interactive map.

Extremist Justices put gun rights over children's safety

The 4th Circuit opinion by Judge Julius Richardson (appointed by Trump) directly references the Supreme Court decision last year that found Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense. That ruling, which also came after a series of mass shootings, ushered in a major expansion of gun rights. It also required gun laws to fall in line with the country’s “historical tradition of firearm regulation.” In this case, Richardson and Judge G. Steven Agee (appointed by George W. Bush) found no evidence of such alignment.

But in her dissenting opinion, Judge Barbara Milano Keenan said her colleagues misapplied the Supreme Court precedent. She condemned their “hyperaggressive view of the Second Amendment.” - AP

Republicans appoint extremist justices to push  gun rights

Republican packed courts "out of step with public opinion"

The Supreme Court ruled that Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense, a ruling likely to lead to more people legally armed... About one-quarter of the U.S. population lives in states expected to be affected by the ruling, which struck down a New York gun law. The high court’s first major gun decision in more than a decade split the court 6-3, with the court’s conservatives in the majority and liberals in dissent.

The court’s decision is somewhat out of step with public opinion. About half of the voters in the 2020 presidential election said gun laws in the U.S. should be made more strict, according to AP VoteCast, an expansive survey of the electorate. An additional one-third said laws should be kept as they are, while only about 1 in 10 said gun laws should be less strict.

President Joe Biden said in a statement he was “deeply disappointed” by the Supreme Court ruling. It “contradicts both common sense and the Constitution, and should deeply trouble us all,” he said. He urged states to pass new laws. “I call on Americans across the country to make their voices heard on gun safety. Lives are on the line" - AP

TakeAway: Elections have consequences. Your vote determines who will be appointed to the court. Vote for Democrats. Your child's live might just depend on it.
