Supreme Court Rules Unanimously Against Biden Administration On Gun Seizure Case

The Supreme Court just dealt a blow to Joe Biden and gun-grabbing progressives everywhere with a unanimous decision on a touchy case.

In what was a busy Monday morning for the Supreme Court, it ruled in favor of a Rhoden Island man who said that his Fourth Amendment rights had been violated when police entered his home and seized his guns while not having a warrant, Forbes reported.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that law enforcement cannot legally enter homes without a warrant even in cases where doing so may benefit the public interest, striking down the suggestion from law enforcement and the Biden administration that doing so under a “community caretaking” exception would be justified.

The case, Caniglia v. Strom, considered whether police acted lawfully by entering a man’s home and removing his firearms without a warrant after he had expressed thoughts of suicide and was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.

Police entered the home under a “community caretaking” exception that allows entry in cases where doing so benefits the public interest, which has traditionally applied to incidents regarding vehicles but not in homes.

Biden’s Department of Justice filed an amicus brief in the case that said police should have the right to enter a home warrantless in cases that are “objectively grounded in a non-investigatory public interest, such as health or safety.”

“What is reasonable for vehicles is different from what is reasonable for homes,” Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said. Thomas noted that the “community caretaking” exception did not constitute “a standalone doctrine that justifies warrantless searches and seizures in the home.”

“The court’s decision does not prevent police officers from taking reasonable steps to assist those who are inside a home and in need of aid,” Justice Brett Kavanaugh said.

Justice Samuel Alito said that the decision implicates but does not address “red flag” laws that allow police to confiscate guns with a court order.

The U.S. Supreme Court also agreed to hear a challenge to a Mississippi law that bans nearly all abortions after the 15th week of pregnancy.

It will be the first abortion case to be argued before the Supreme Court since Justice Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed, potentially providing a pathway to challenging Roe v. Wade and allowing outright bans on abortion.

The court will consider the heart of Roe by hearing arguments on whether all bans on abortion prior to the point of fetal viability are unconstitutional.

“A very busy morning at the Supreme Court. To sum up: The court issued 4 decisions (including major rulings on the 4th Amendment and non-unanimous juries) and added 3 new cases to next term’s docket (including what could be the biggest abortion case in more than a generation),” SCOTUSBlog said on Twitter.

“The Supreme Court rules in favor of a company that tried to sue the IRS for an injunction blocking the agency from enforcing a 2016 guidance about “reportable transactions.” The case involved a technical issue about the timing of the company’s lawsuit,” it said.

“The Supreme Court sides with oil companies on a narrow, procedural issue in a lawsuit seeking to hold them accountable for climate change. The issue involves whether the companies can appeal certain aspects of a lower-court ruling about whether the case belongs in federal court,” it said.

“SCOTUS rules that last year’s decision in Ramos v. Louisiana (which said the Sixth Amendment establishes a right to a unanimous jury in both federal and state courts) does NOT apply retroactively to convictions that became final before the Ramos decision.

“Before the Ramos decision last year, only Louisiana, Oregon and Puerto Rico still allowed non-unanimous juries. Today’s ruling means that hundreds of people convicted with non-unanimous juries in those jurisdictions won’t get new trials,” it said.
