It’s a bad week to be a liberal. First the Supreme Court upholds the Second Amendment and then it kills Roe.
Poor things. They beat Donald Trump and think the world is set right. But somehow they now have a failing president with numbers in the tank, runaway inflation, and they lost two very big issues for them. Not to mention the upcoming midterms.
Fox: “Conservatives on Twitter slammed Governor Kathy Hochul, D-N.Y., after she railed against the Supreme Court ruling which overturned New York’s restrictive concealed carry firearm regulations.
After the Supreme Court issued a ruling on Thursday which struck down the state’s tough regulations regarding those seeking a concealed carry permit, a defiant Governor Hochul made a televised address to her citizens denouncing the decision.”
Hochul insisted the Supreme Court “has stripped away the State of New York’s right and responsibility to protect its citizens.” She said the decision is “frightful in its scope” and “sending us backwards in our efforts to protect families and prevent gun violence…I’m sorry this dark day has come, that we’re supposed to go back to what was in place since 1788 when the Constitution of the United States of America was ratified. And I would like to point out to the Supreme Court justices that the only weapons at the time were muskets. I’m prepared to go back to muskets.”
“If Kathy Hochul’s security detail doesn’t set an example by switching to only using muskets first… then she can f— right off,” Washington Times columnist Tim Young tweeted.
Former Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller asked, “Will the criminals rampaging freely across New York be going back to muskets as well? Also, out of curiosity, what medium is Hochul using to broadcast this message and did it exist in the 18th century?”
Conservative author Carmine Sabia blasted Hochul, “New York Gov. Kathy Hochul threatens that she is ‘prepared to go back to muskets’ as she appears determined to [violate] the Second Amendment.”
Conservative podcast host Monica Crowley asked, “Hi @GovKathyHochul- remember when you were in Congress and proudly touted your ‘A’ rating from the NRA? Good times.”
The Blaze reporter Jill Savage dinged Hochul’s tweet, commenting, “Sorry the Constitution happened to you.”

Lawyer and conservative Matthew Kolken responded “Take the loss, Kathy. Or we will see you back in Court.” Conservative journalist Beth Baumann rebuked Hochul, “It’s outrageous that you want sexual assault survivors like myself to prove we have a ‘need’ for a CCW, even though our past is proof enough. I know what that’s like because I lived in your buddy Gavin Newsom’s state at the time.”
Breitbart writer Wendell Husebo replied, “It’s a great ruling. Protects the right of self-defense. Not everyone can afford private security like Hochul.”
