Earlier this year, the Senate voted to confirm Jackson as a member of the US Supreme Court. Only three Republican senators voted to confirm: Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska.

Jackson is set to fill the position that will arise later this year when Judge Stephen Breyer retires. Jackson, who was nominated by Democratic President Joe Biden, is widely expected to be a left-leaning member of the court.

Last week, 19 children and 2 teachers were killed in a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. In early May, ten people were killed after a gunman opened fire at a convenience store in Buffalo, New York.

Democrats have been pushing for gun control legislation, and during an address to the nation on Thursday, President Joe Biden called for a ban on assault weapons and large-capacity magazines, specifically calling for a return to the ban, which was approved in 1994 but has elapsed a decade later. If a ban cannot be achieved, the President proposed raising the age for purchasing such weapons to 21.

The President said that “the Second Amendment, like all other rights, is not absolute”.

That Second Amendment states: “A well-regulated militia, necessary to the security of a free state, must not violate the right of the people to possess and bear arms.”

If Congress passed a gun control bill along those lines, Second Amendment proponents would almost certainly take legal action, and the matter could end up in the Supreme Court, where Jackson would play a role in deciding the case once it’s on the Throne sits court.
