A friend of the blog beat me to writing me about Caniglia v. Strom:
Monday May 17th the SCOTUS handed down a unanimous decision in Caniglia v. Strom, see:https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf/20-157_8mjp.pdf
Several things stand out about this decision;
* first and most gratifying even the liberal judges on the SCOTUS would not support the extreme Biden administration and the gun grabbing Democrats,
* second the opinions by Thomas, with Roberts, Breyer, Alito, and Kavenaugh concurring all provide ammunition to address and refute the Red Flag laws that are currently being considered by State legislatures and the US House,
* and finally viewing the case timeline* before the court it is notable that The Gun Owners of America did the heavy lifting in amicus curiae briefs while the NRA was effectively MIA.
SCOTUSBlog has the timeline for the case.
I’d hoped this might be a preview of New York State Rifle And Pistol Association Vs. Corlett – and to some extent they might be, although I suspect Sotomayor, Kagan and Breyer will defect from the majority on those.
