BOMBSHELL: Law Firm Forces Out Own Lawyers Who Won Supreme Court Gun Case

(Republican Party News) – Two of the attorneys who made a successful argument in the Supreme Court that affirms the Second Amendment right to be armed outside of the home have now been forced to leave their Washington, D.C., law firm.

It seems that in this world, especially in our own day and age, if you dare to do the right thing, you’re going to incur consequences, which is a testimony to how morally bankrupt our country has become in recent years.

According to WND, pressure from clients and other lawyers working at the Kirkland & Ellis LLP, has led to the firm no longer handling cases concerning the Second Amendment, a report from Politico said.

“Former Solicitor General Paul Clement and Erin Murphy, who argued successfully before the Supreme Court in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, said they had to resign,” the report continued.

“We were given a stark choice: either withdraw from ongoing representations or withdraw from the firm,” Clement revealed in a statement that was published by Politico.

“Anyone who knows us and our views regarding professional responsibility and client loyalty knows there was only one course open to us: We could not abandon ongoing representations just because a client’s position is unpopular in some circles,” the statement continued.

Jon Ballis, a spokesman for Kirkland, went on to tell Politico that he hoped the firm would keep working with both attorneys on matters that were not related to guns.

“The announcement of the dropping of gun cases and the resignations took place on the day the Supreme Court ruled 6-3 to strike down New York’s law requiring anyone who wishes to obtain a concealed-carry permit to demonstrate a ‘proper purpose’ to have weapons outside the home,” the report said.

Politico pointed out in their piece that a decade ago, Clement left the Atlanta-based firm, King & Spalding, after they too distanced themselves from Clement’s work, only instead of guns it was over the effort he put in to upholding the Defense of Marriage Act, which was signed by President Bill Clinton back in 1996.

DOMA, as the bill came to be called, defined marriage as a union between one man and one woman and permitted the states not to recognize same-sex marriages that might be recognized by other states.

At that time, Clement said, “I resign out of the firmly held belief that a representation should not be abandoned because the client’s legal position is extremely unpopular in certain quarters. Defending unpopular clients is what lawyers do.”

The Defense of Marriage Act was overturned in 2013 in a 5-4 decision.

The radical left is doing everything in their power to silence the voices and the power of those who believe in traditional conservative values, like biblically defined marriage and the right to own a firearm to preserve life, liberty, and property.

These two truths are foundational for a society that is free and independent. They cannot rebuild a Marxian country unless it is atop the bones of the one we currently have, which is why they are trying so desperately to tear it down.
