Justice Ginsburg Wants Supreme Court To Overrule 1A And 2A Protections

posted on July 12, 2016

In a politically charged, election-year interview with The New York Times, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg went out of her way to attack Donald Trump and his presidential campaign, and to express her hope that two critical Supreme Court cases—protecting our First and Second Amendment rights—be overturned by the Court.

Commenting on the Supreme Court’s 2008 landmark ruling that ended the D.C. gun ban by confirming that residents have an individual right to keep and bear arms to protect themselves in their homes, Ginsburg said, “I thought Heller was a very bad decision.” 

Ginsburg, 83, who has been on the Court for 23 years, also said, “I’d love to see Citizens United overruled.” This is the ruling that protects the ability of groups of like-minded people—like NRA members—to pool their money to pay for political communications. In other words, they want to silence us so they can disarm us.
