The wait is the worst part. Tune in to SCOTUSBlog at 10 for the nail biting coverage. I am off work today, so as soon as the opinion comes out, I will begin reading and commenting. We have a simple strategy Bitter and I have worked out. If McDonald wins, we’ll go out later tonight and celebrate with some drinks. If McDonald loses tonight, we’ll go out later tonight and drown our sorrows with some drinks. Either way distillers, wine growers, and brewers benefit!
I predict that Justice Alito will write the Courtâ€™s opinion inÂ McDonald recognizing that the Second Amendment is incorporated.Â But given Justice Alitoâ€™s sensitivity towards law enforcement, I doubt that the opinion will call into question a broad swath of firearms regulation.
We’ll find out very shortly whether he’s right.
UPDATE: Apparently Justice Ginsberg’s husband passed away yesterday. Very sad. We wish her the best no matter how she voted.
