Justice Neil Gorsuch and the Second Amendment

Taken and edited from Ammoland:

In a fiery dissent on June 26th, 2017 with regard to the court not taking up the Peruta case,  along with Justice Clarence Thomas, Gorsuch demanded that the Court take this case and other Second Amendment cases in order to protect the rights of citizens living in states that do not respect the Second Amendment.

From the dissent on how the Heller case speaks clearly on the issue of carrying firearms for self-defense:

As we explained in Heller, to “bear arms” means to “‘wear, bear, or carry upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose of being armed and ready for offen­sive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person.’” The most natural reading of this definition encom­passes public carry. I find it extremely improbable that the Framers understood the Second Amendment to protect little more than carrying a gun from the bedroom to the kitchen.
