The United States Supreme Court has just handed down a decision that is music to the ears of people who support the Second Amendment and gun rights.

At the heart of the decision is the idea that if you are a law abiding citizen who has gone through all the hoops government requires for gun ownership, you should be able to carry your firearm.

The decision has people on the left losing their minds.

Supreme Court gun decision shoots down NY rule that set high bar for concealed carry licenses

The Supreme Court Thursday ruled 6-3 that New York’s regulations that made it difficult to obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun were unconstitutionally restrictive, and that it should be easier to obtain such a license.

The existing standard required an applicant to show “proper cause” for seeking a license, and allowed New York officials to exercise discretion in determining whether a person has shown a good enough reason for needing to carry a firearm. Stating that one wished to protect themselves or their property was not enough.

“In this case, petitioners and respondents agree that ordinary, law-abiding citizens have a similar right to carry handguns publicly for their self-defense. We too agree, and now hold, consistent with Heller and McDonald, that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the Court’s opinion, referencing two previous gun cases.

“Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State’s licensing regime violates the Constitution.”

Here are some examples of leftists going bonkers over this:

This is a huge win for freedom, so naturally Democrats hate it.
