Possibility of More Supreme Court Rulings on Second Amendment


Post by KLB » Tue Oct 23, 2018 6:15 pm

Fortunately, in the coming months the Court will likely review multiple petitions presenting the question whether the Second Amendment’s guarantee that the public may “bear Arms” really means that ordinary Americans may carry firearms in public for self-defense. The Court would be wise to defer ruling on the first petition presented to it, instead biding its time until one of the other petitions in the pipeline lands in the Court — and presents the question more ably and cleanly.

The first petition, Rothery v. Blanas, . . . presents a poor vehicle, and the Court should avoid it. The case was filed in the lower courts about ten years ago, and the factual record is stale . . .

. . .

Another petition is expected later this year or early next year out of the Third Circuit case Rogers v. Attorney General, New Jersey. That petition, in a case being litigated by experienced Supreme Court and Second Amendment lawyers, would also present the critical question relating to citizens’ Second Amendment right to carry firearms. If granted, the petition could be argued next fall, in Justice Kavanaugh’s first full term at the High Court. The Rogers case presents an excellent vehicle for the Court’s review.

Let us all hope.
