SCOTUS Rules on NYSRPA v. Bruen, Explained

SCOTUS Rules on NYSRPA v. Bruen, Explained

Our friend Maggie at The Universal Spectator wrote a nice wrap-up on the SCOTUS ruling today on NYSRPA v. Bruen, reprinted here on I decided to amplify the discussions on this 2A ruling by some other sources I follow.

These days, I believe it behooves all of us thinking Patriots to understand precisely what was at issue and why this ruling is so critical to our future as a Constitutional Republic. I’ve linked below a very thoughtful article by one of my fave bloggers on Substack, who goes by the moniker SLAG. I really learn from and enjoy how thoroughly he assembles all the salient points about any issue and then logically lays out the logical thinking of it. An excerpt, right up front:

In this article we’re going to look at:

  • What is NYSRPA v. Bruen and why is it significant?
  • Why hasn’t SCOTUS taken another 2A case from 2010-2021?
  • How will the court rule on Bruen?
  • Text, history & tradition vs. two-step inquiry?
  • What is the potential outcome of this case?
  • Will the NYC subway shooting have any affect on the outcome of the decision?

This one is a keeper to pass on to any who wonder why the issue was decided this way and I believe it will serve us well in the future as we try to hang on to our currently fragile Constitutional Republic. I hope you will agree.

Further, if you appreciate the work above by SLAG, you may also be interested in another reprise of today’s ruling by another of my faves, ArnGrimR also on Substack.  In addition to this article linked below, he posted this message on TruthSocial, which also bears attention:

A lot is being said about today’s SCOTUS decision regarding the 2nd Amendment, but -albeit a very important and fundamental one – it is only a partial decision.

Let’s explore this topic a little deeper!

Where does that right to bear arms come from?

Why is it important?

Is the state or even the police responsible for our protection? Or are we?

As the Court did today, going back to history helps to get the right perspective!

It takes time and attention to fully prepare to defend our Rights under the Constitution. Enjoy your reading!
