GREAT NEWS FOR GUN OWNERS & OUR CONSTITUTION!

In a rare bit of good news, the Supreme Court issued a decision on May 17, 2021 that overturned Rhode Island police’s policy of carrying out warrantless searches for firearms in a home by using the “community caretaking function.”


The Court decision ended up being unanimous with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas writing a short opinion that rejected the use of this doctrine as a justification for the search. In his opinion, Thomas made a distinction between a rule that was applicable to an impounded car and “the right of a man to retreat into his own home and there be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion.”
