Guns Down, a gun reform group that was formed in 2016, published the fake front page on Sunday evening. The paper, called the End Times, has headlines for several things that left-leaning Americans fear will happen if the Supreme Court has a conservative lean in the future.

The headlines include:

  • “Roe v. Wade Overturned: Women fear possible arrest, health ramifications as States prepare to outlaw abortion”
  • “Extreme Court: Gays have no right to wed: Christian conservatives celebrating monumental change in federal same-sex marriage laws”
  • “States Can’t Ban Guns in Public Places, High Court Finds”
  • “Government Efforts to Regulate Greenhouse Gasses Unconstitutional”
  • “Extreme Court Finds Assault Weapon Bans Unconstitutional”

Guns Down did not immediately respond to a request for comment by the Daily Dot.
