“The Supreme Court has refused to overturn laws banning gun ownership in the past and I would be surprised if they do so in this case.”

They have refused to *hear* cases banning gun ownership in the past.

That is quite different than refusing to *overturn*.

When they refuse to hear a case it's the equivilent of placing the court's seal of approval on the lower court's decision.
