Supreme Court strikes down Trump-era federal ban on bump stocks



Supreme Court strikes down Trump-era federal ban on bump stocks

The 6-3 vote aligned with the conservative supermajority's previous decisions in gun cases, such as its 2022 decision to expand gun rights.

Time To Deflate Photo
Edward Hopper, Sunlight on Brownstones, 1956. I admire his style. It has a crisp starkness and yet cozy in a familiar way.

Have a peaceful weekend everyone.
