The Supreme Court has reportedly agreed to review the Biden administration’s appeal of a verdict that would nullify its “ghost gun” laws, which would lead to a significant confrontation on firearms in the upcoming term.

Following their previous two emergency interventions, the justices have now consented to consider the matter on its substantive merits, as stated in a concise order issued on Monday.

Their decision follows a two-year period when President Biden declared a stringent approach towards these devices, which pertain to firearms marketed in the form of self-assembly kits and are typically challenging to track.

The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals deemed the regulation illegal, supporting the claims of two weapon owners, two gun rights advocacy organizations, and five corporations involved in the production or distribution of firearms who opposed the strict measures.

Subsequently, the Justice Department strongly advised the Supreme Court to consider the case, cautioning that allowing the lower ruling to remain in effect would result in fatal outcomes.

The Supreme Court has intervened twice in support of the Biden administration on the court’s emergency docket.

The first intervention resulted in a 5-4 vote by the Justices, while the second intervention did not have any publicly expressed disagreements.

However, neither of those cases constituted a definitive judgment on the substantive aspects of the administration’s regulation.

The case, Garland v. VanDerStok, does not involve the Second Amendment, but rather examines whether a longstanding federal gun regulation grants the government the power to control ghost guns.

Following Biden’s declaration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) implemented a regulation that broadens the administration’s understanding of two aspects of the statute.
