The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday turned away a bid to widen legal protections for gun silencers in a case involving two Kansas men convicted for failing to register the devices as required by federal law, as the justices again sidestepped a chance to rule on the scope of the right to bear arms.
The justices declined to hear appeals by the two men, Shane Cox and Jeremy Kettler, and left in place their convictions in cases brought by federal prosecutors.
The men had asked the court to decide whether silencers – muzzle attachments that suppress the sound of a gunshot – are covered by the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, which protects the right to keep and bear arms.
NEW: Supreme Court turns away challenges to a federal law that requires registration of gun silencers. — Greg Stohr (@GregStohr) June 10, 2019 .@realDonaldTrump as someone who voted for you & believes your heart is in the right place on the issue, you should know that your base not only likes silencers/suppressors they have very valid reasons for owning them. I Would love to sit & have a conversation about those reasons — Colion Noir (@MrColionNoir) June 4, 2019
