Major Supreme Court Decisions Hang in the Balance
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Major Supreme Court decisions currently pending before the United States Supreme Court, and those that may come in the near future, are hanging in the balance with the death of Justice Scalia.
Mat Staver: Matt, there are some major cases that have already been decided. Some cases that have actually been argued, not doubt cases that will be coming in the future, that literally hang in the balance because of the absence of Justice Antonin Scalia. In fact, at The Awakening 2016, we’re going to be addressing some of these critical issues and I hope people come to The Awakening 2016. It’s this coming Saturday, March the 5th.
Matt Barber: There are a number of things that are in jeopardy here. One of them is the Second Amendment. You’ve heard some of the candidates on the presidential trail out there talking about this. We cannot overemphasize how important it is that Justice Scalia is replaced with a like-minded justice.
One case is the District of Columbia v. Heller. This is a 2008 decision that ruled that the Second Amendment protects a person’s right to own a gun for personal use and it establishes the ability to keep a loaded handgun in one’s home for self-defence under certain restrictions. We know there are at least. . .three, and maybe four, justices on the court right now who would love to see the Second Amendment essentially just wiped out.
