Resisting unprecedented political and ideological pressureincluding public violence and an attempted assassination of a sitting Justicethe U.S. Supreme Court just issued two 6-3 decisions demonstrating the majoritys resolve. In Bruen, the Court struck down New York states discretionary handgun licensing law, as a violation of the 2nd Amendment. In Dobbs, it ruled that there is no Constitutional right to abortion, as asserted by Roe, and that therefore states, not federal courts, have jurisdiction over abortion law. Was the Court wiseor foolishto turn a blind eye to public opinion regarding these momentous rulings?
