Obama-Appointed Judge Ruling Says Illegal Aliens Can Carry Firearms

Last Updated on March 19, 2024

An Obama-appointed federal judge recently authored what could be a landmark ruling in the continued fight to secure America’s border and America’s streets from the tens of millions of illegal aliens being streamlined into the country, as she ruled that illegal aliens have the constitutional right to possess and carry firearms. Legal observers warn that the ruling could have wide-ranging side effects, and set a precedent for additional rulings that will extend, en masse, the constitutional rights treasured by American citizens, to illegal aliens. The ruling also comes as the federal government continues its efforts to strip American citizens of their right to bear arms whenever possible.

Obama-appointed United States District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman, of the Northern District of Illinois, ruled days ago that Section 922 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, which bars illegal aliens from carrying guns and ammunition, is unconstitutional.

The ruling came by way of a court case surrounding illegal alien Heriberto Carbajal-Flores, who was arrested and charged with illegal gun possession by an illegal alien in Chicago, in the spring of 2020. 

The argument made by Carbajal-Flores’ lawyers was based on a 2022 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said that gun control laws must be “consistent with this nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation,” which allowed them to convince Judge Coleman that because the Constitution does not specifically bar illegal aliens from owning or carrying firearms, and because, historically, the United States hasn’t had the need to stop millions of illegal aliens from arming themselves, now they can’t be stopped.

The noncitizen possession statute, Coleman ruled, “violates the Second Amendment as applied to Carbajal-Flores.”

“Thus, the court grants Carbajal-Flores’ motion to dismiss” the illegal gun possession case against him.

Ironically, considering the political background and associations of Judge Coleman, to justify Carbajal-Flores’ illegal alien firearm ownership, she declared that the illegal alien “received and used the handgun solely for self-protection and protection of property during a time of documented civil unrest in the Spring of 2020,” as Black Lives Matter militants backed by the Democrat Party unleashed a murderous wave of riots and destruction on America’s cities and citizens.

It should also be noted, that the State of Illinois and the City of Chicago have some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, and American citizens are barred from carrying firearms unless they possess a hard-to-get Illinois Concealed Carry License.

What’s more, is that the ruling doesn’t mark the first apparent instance of political activism from the bench on Judge Coleman’s behalf, as in February of 2014, she ruled that homosexuals could marry each other in the state of Illinois, months before the US Supreme Court struck down bans on gay “marriage” nationwide – a case that’s widely seen as an unconstitutional encroachment on the rights of the states, in violation of the Constitution’s 10th Amendment.
