Will the Obergefell Decision Shoot Down the Second Amendment? (September 2, 2015)

Usually, Second Amendment advocates don’t care about things like the Supreme Court’s Obergefell decision that morphed the word “liberty” in the Fourteenth Amendment into a right to same-sex “marriage” and put it on a collision course with the constitutional right to freedom of religion. But maybe they should.

With some now trying to morph freedom of religion into freedom of worship whereby same-sex “marriage” obtains a constitutional preference, what is to keep the Court from someday saying that the “right to keep and bear arms” was only intended to protect one’s “liberty” in the context of home invasions and that people have a right not to have their life or liberty threatened by people who carry guns in public?

Were that to happen, some Second Amendment supporters may just feel like they’ve shot themselves in the foot by not caring more about marriage.
