Supreme Court Unanimously Rebuffs Biden Administration on Warrantless Searches for Handguns

"The Supreme Court unanimously rejected Biden administration arguments in a case from Rhode Island that police should be allowed to enter homes without a warrant to seize handguns.

The ruling in the case, Caniglia v. Strom, court file 20-157, came May 17. Oral arguments took place telephonically on March 24.

The case came before the high court as President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats pressed for aggressive new restrictions on Second Amendment gun ownership rights, including controversial “red flag” laws, which allow gun seizures from law-abiding gun owners with limited due process, in the wake of highly publicized deadly mass shootings in March at a Boulder, Colorado, supermarket and at Atlanta-area spas."

They did not find in favor of the Second Amendment.

It was a Fourth Amendment case:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

It negates the so-called Red Flag laws, but the way the decision was written it applies to any over-reach by the government.  Keep in mind that the Red Flag laws were never intended to be narrow forever; they couldl have been applied to kicking in your door at 02:00 hours by the FBI ERT based on a report from your neighbor about  a remark you made on social media that the overlords didn't like.

That firearms were the object of the complaint is irrelevant.  The complaint could just as easily been about automobiles, Twinkies, bags of cocaine or LEGOS.
