Supreme Court restores Article One lawmaking power, freedom of religious expression, the right to bear arms and federalism in a week

Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following on the conclusion of the Supreme Court’s 2021 term which included West Virginia v. EPAKennedy v. Bremerton School Dist.New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen and Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization:

“Today ends the most consequential Supreme Court term in more than a generation, as the Court eviscerated the power of the administrative state to contrive regulations outside the intent of Congress in the West Virginia v. EPA case, ended the federal legal onslaught against the free exercise of religion in the Kennedy, made it clear that individual liberties enumerated in the Constitution extend across state lines in the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association case, while rejecting the Court’s power to write legislation by ending the inferred right to abortion and returning the issue to the states in the Dobbs case.

“This Court restored individual First and Second Amendment rights, federalism and took a giant swipe at the power of the Article II executive branch of government to write laws through regulation.

“It is a great day in America and as we head into Independence Day weekend, the fireworks will shine a little brighter and pop a little louder as they proclaim the reclaimed freedom primarily due to the efforts, clarity and vision of Associate Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brett Kavanaugh. America is more free today than it was six months ago, and all liberty loving Americans should look at this day as a watershed in turning the tide against the ever-encroaching administrative state’s encroachment on individual liberty.”
