Former sports commentator and ESPN host, Keith Olbermann, furiously reacted to the Supreme Court’s decision regarding New York’s concealed carry ruling by ranting on Twitter that the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) should be ignored and dissolved completely.
“It has become necessary to dissolve the Supreme Court of the United States,” Olbermann posted to Twitter. “The first step is for a state the ‘court’ has now forced guns upon, to ignore this ruling.”
“Great, You’re a court?” Olbermann continued, “Why and how do you think you can enforce your rulings?”
The SCOTUS’ 6-3 decision to overturn the obtrusive procedures, that made it nearly impossible for law-abiding citizens in New York to obtain a conceal cary permit, now makes it simpler for citizens to obtain the license.
Olbermann continued to double down on his position, saying “This is no longer a court. It is a Minority imposing its religious beliefs on the Majority: our House of Lords; Superlegislature; Theocracy. Where possible, states must ignore its invalid edicts.”
“Sounds like you are advocating insurrection,” tweeted filmmaker Paul Ray Ramsey. “You need to be reported to the police under the ‘red flag’ laws.”
Pro-Second Amendment supporters on Twitter, such as Jenna Ellis, former attorney for President Donald Trump, replied to Olbermann’s sensationalist opinion by pointing out that Article III of the US Constitution would prevent that from ever happening.
A recent article at Newsweek points out that “Article III of the Constitution gives the Supreme Court, in addition to lower courts created by Congress, the power to rule in cases controversial or not under federal law.”
