    Monday came with bad news for the National Rifle Association and gun enthusiasts, but great news for most Americans — the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a constitutional challenge to Connecticut and New York’s ban on semi-automatic assault rifles just days after the deadly attacks in Orlando with a similar style weapon.

    First, the decision not to hear the case means the lower court’s ruling to uphold New York’s and Connecticut’s ban on semi-automatic assault rifles like the one used in the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting will remain in place.

    Second, this signals to seven other states (as well as the District of Columbia) with similar bans that their laws are safe. Those states with bans are California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey, as well as, Minnesota and Virginia regulate assault weapons, according toCBS.

    And third, this also shows that the Supreme Court currently considers reasonable restrictions on guns not to be in violation of the Second Amendment.

    The Supreme Court has 4 to-the-wall leftist activist judges, and 4 other judges. When Hillary takes office, if she can get her choice of judge through Congress, the Constitution will officially be 100% dead, and our freedoms will systematically be crushed by a series of Supreme Court rulings.

    The people behind #NeverTrump gave us the unmitigated disaster that was the Iraq war, now they're outdoing themselves in destruction of America by trying to sink Trump among Republicans, so Hillary wins.

    Bad news for the NRA? Bad news for all Americans. America RIP.
