Over a 14 page dissent by Justice Thomas, certiorari is denied.
The Court would take these cases because abortion, speech, and the Fourth Amendment are three of its favored rights. The right to keep and bear arms is apparently this Court’s constitutional orphan. And the lower courts seem to have gotten the message.
Thomas's dissent starts at page 34: https://www.supremecourt.gov/orders/courtorders/022018zor_fd9g.pdf

It's a good read. Too bad he's standing alone.

Our continued refusal to hear Second Amendment cases only enables this kind of defiance. We have not heard argument in a Second Amendment case for nearly eight years. Peruta v. California, 582 U. S. ___, ___ (2017) (THOMAS, J., dissenting from denial of certiorari) (slip op., at 7). And we have not clarified the standard for assessing Second Amendment claims for almost 10. Meanwhile, in this Term alone, we have granted review in at least five cases involving the First Amendment and four cases involving the Fourth Amendment—even though our jurisprudence is much more developed for those rights.

In a political climate where it is hard to trust a great many allegedly pro 2A organizations I have the utmost confidence in Comm2A. Thanks for keeping up the good fight.

Exactly why Trump has to continue to play the B.S. game. We need a solidly 2A favorable SCOTUS first and foremost to begin to undue the mess we have.

Ma.
Disgusting! The courts have thrown off their constitutional chains and have set themselves up as the arbiters of all things.

Pro-2A justices will not allow a 2A case to be heard unless they know they can win. No decision isn't good for anti-gun California, but it's better than an anti-gun decision for the entire country.
