Justice Clarence Thomas Says Of Course the AR-15 is Legal Under the Second Amendment

Gun wall rack with rifles and pistol.

Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas revealed a secret last week that is sure to have leftist gun-grabbers sweating bullets. The AR-15 is quite obviously a legal firearm under the Second Amendment.

Justice Thomas voiced his support for America’s favorite rifle in a brief dissent as the court gets closer to deciding on Illinois’ illegal and unconstitutional ban on the AR-15 and other firearms.

When the court does eventually hear that case, it is likely to be the biggest decision on firearm rights in more than a century.

California, New York, and Washington, DC, get a lot of credit for their horrible anti-gun laws, but Illinois is the absolute worst when it comes to restricting Americans’ civil rights.

In 2023, the Illinois state legislature passed a major gun ban that Gov. JB Pritzker (D) signed into law. It bans AR-15s, AK-47s, semiautomatic pistols, and a bunch of other popular firearms.

A lawsuit against the law is currently making its way through the federal courts.

The gun ban is working wonders for the people of Illinois, by the way. Chicago had 109 people shot and 19 killed over the recent four-day holiday weekend. The violence was so bad that Chicago’s idiot mayor blamed it on Richard Nixon’s policies.

The Supreme Court declined to hear the case just yet and sent it back to the lower Appeals Court to finish its work on the case. It was in his dissent to the case last week that Justice Thomas tipped his hand.

Thomas wrote that the overwhelming popularity of the AR-15, combined with the fact that it is a non-military rifle, means that Americans are clearly allowed to own the gun under the Second Amendment.

Thomas also said he’s eager for this case to finally reach the Supreme Court so that the justices can finally create a list of which firearms are allowed.

“This Court must provide more guidance on which weapons the Second Amendment covers,” he wrote.

The Illinois State Rifle Association is the group suing Gov. JB Pritzker over the ban. The group’s argument is fairly simple. It believes the AR-15 should be legal under the Second Amendment, for the same reasons outlined by Justice Thomas. It’s the most popular sporting rifle in the entire country. There are an estimated 28.1 million AR-15s in American households, which is greater than the number of Ford F-150s on America’s highways.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied the Rifle Association’s petition for an emergency injunction against Pritzker’s ban. The court claimed that the AR-15 is not protected under the Second Amendment. This is far from the end of the case, however. There’s a hearing scheduled for September 16 in the Southern District of Illinois.

Thomas encouraged the group to move forward with the case, writing, “If the Seventh Circuit ultimately allows Illinois to ban America’s most common civilian rifle, we can — and should — review that decision once the cases reach a final judgment. The Court must not permit ‘the Seventh Circuit relegate the Second Amendment to a second-class right.’”

Thomas also blasted the Seventh Circuit for concluding that the Second Amendment allows for the ban of “militaristic” weapons. The court didn’t even define what that meant. Militaristic?

Regardless of the fact that most reporters who cover the Second Amendment are functional idiots when it comes to firearms, the AR-15 is not a military weapon. It’s a small-caliber, semi-automatic rifle.

I happen to love the AR-15, but I often joke that it’s a glorified squirrel rifle because of the small caliber. Reporters—and most Democrats in Congress—seem to think that the AR-15 is a .50 caliber automatic machine gun that fires a billion rounds per second.

None of that is true and Justice Thomas knows it. The Illinois State Rifle Association is going to lose this case in the Appeals Court. We already know the court is too ignorant to grant proper relief. That’s okay, though.

The Supreme Court has signaled that it’s going to take up the case once that happens. Once the Supreme Court declares that AR-15s and Glocks and other favored firearms are legal under the Second Amendment, it’s going to knock down anti-gun laws in California and all the other leftist states.

That will be one of the biggest victories for American freedom that any of us have seen in our lifetimes.
