Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) is no friend of the Second Amendment. Justice Ginsburg voted against the Heller decision. She voted against the McDonald decision. Her opinion on the Second Amendment is clear. From armsandthelaw.com:
“If the court had properly interpreted the Second Amendment, the Court would have said that amendment was very important when the nation was new,” she said. “It gave a qualified right to keep and bear arms, but it was for one purpose only — and that was the purpose of having militiamen who were able to fight to preserve the nation.””
Ruth’s position is to define the Second Amendment out of existence, without any argument, because she believes it has no purpose in modern society. Her position has been: The Second Amendment is old. Therefore we can ignore it. That is the Progressive position about the Constitution. It is old, therefore we can ignore it.
On 21 December of 2018, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had the lower lobe of her left lung removed because it contained two malignant cancer nodules. From theatlantic.com:
On Friday, surgeons in New York removed the lower lobe of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s left lung. According to a statement from the Supreme Court, two nodules—which had been discovered in a CT scan after Ginsburg broke three ribs last month—were determined to be malignant.
Images before the surgery showed no evidence of cancer elsewhere in her body, and doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center reported that there was “no evidence of any remaining disease” after the procedure. According to the statement, no further treatment is planned.
On 23 August, 2019, the Supreme Court released information indicating Justice Ginsburg had completed three weeks of radiation therapy to treat a tumor on her pancreas. This treatment occurred less than eight months after the surgery to remove a lobe of her lung.
