rebuttals to "Gun Control"
One of Justice Antonin Scalia's last official acts before his death last February was to join Justice Clarence Thomas in complaining that the Supreme Court risked "relegating the Second Amendment to a second-class right" when it let stand an Illinois city's ban on owning semiautomatic weapons.
Since then, the court has fallen silent on gun issues, understandably. Justice Scalia was the author of the court's 2008 decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which established a constitutional right to keep a handgun at home for self-defense. The vote was 5 to 4, and although the court's membership has changed since then, with two of the dissenters succeeded by Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, there has been every reason to think that any request to extend Heller would find the court at an impasse.
An appeal filed at the court last week could change that. It asks the justices to decide the major question left open by the Heller decision: whether the Second Amendment protects the right to carry a gun outside the home. If the court decides to hear the case, the argument would take place in the fall -- by which time, presumably, a Trump administration justice will have taken Justice Scalia's place. .......
