It is highly unusual for the US Department of Justice to release a statement saying that they disagree with a US Supreme Court decision. Yet, that is exactly what Biden’s DOJ did yesterday after the Supreme Court issued its opinion in NYSRPA v. Bruen.
Bear in mind Justice Kavanaugh’s concurrence where he pointed out that 43 states already have shall issue concealed carry and would only impact the outliers. Moreover, 11 out of the top 15 US cities by population are in states with either shall-issue carry or permitless carry.
If the DOJ was intent on defending federal firearms laws as they state, then why has Hunter Biden not been charged for lying on the ATF Form 4473? Is this a case of laws for thee but not for me?
Do they mean to weaponize the FBI and especially the BATFE against gun owners, dealers, and manufacturers? Will they be working with less free states to slow walk this decision?
It is interesting that this statement is attributed to the DOJ while a similar statement on the overturning of Roe v. Wade is directly from Attorney General Merrick Garland.

This is a disgusting and frightening thing to see. To me the key phrase is “all legally available tools”.
Supposedly, as far as how I understand the system was supposed to work, “may issue” laws are no longer available tools. For years it has been obvious that the government did as it pleased behind the scenes, but when DOJ and the AG come out with public statements that in essence say “We don’t care what SCOTUS decides”, our much touted “rule of law” is history.
I may just have to stop talking and start quoting you, Old Jarhead.
Carry on (pun intended).
So, the Attorney-General (the head of the DoJ) has admitted he is unable or unwilling to carry out the oath of office he swore to, making him unable to carry out his duties…as well as everyone else who had a part in this nonsense.
FIRE THEM ALL.
