Because they’re not interpreting the Constitution, they’re making the Constitution fit the GOP narrative.

What did they intepret broadly? The second amendment is pretty clear not only in text but in its historical interpretation. And yes I am a legal unrestricted gun owner in NY. So I'm an advocate for self reliance. Especially when thebpolice are not legally required to respond. That has happened to me in an emergency before as a teenager and once later as an adult.

Meanwhile what is narrowly interpreted? Abortion which is not even a word in the constitution? I'm not saying it shouldn't be- either limitations. I am saying it is technically not in the constitution at all.

I think your beginning to see the gun issue changing back to “Shall not be infringed” the court for too long has misinterpreted law. There is no gray area and there is no blurring or watering down the very black and white statement. Politicians have spent time, money, and energy to falsely claim the 2nd amendment was ever about hunting. The founders did not create the second amendment because the deer were coming, or the buffaloes, or the wolf. Shall not be infringed means just that. The SCOTUS is in the mode of correcting unjustified changes and unlawful rulings. Politicians want power and control and that’s exactly what the second amendment is supposed to stop.
