    Working my way through the briefs on this, seriously disappointed by NSSF's brief, nice history lesson but no substance. Very interesting tactics being put forward, they are definitely swinging for a home run here. If successful, may finally shut down anti-gun groups. On the flip side, by giving full weight to the privileges and immunities clause, I have to wonder what the effect will be on state's rights across the board.

    Response briefs are not due for several weeks, and I noticed there was nothing from DOJ filed yet. I can't imagine BO passing on this issue and we will have a good indicator on the administration's stance if the Solicitor General chimes in on this case.

    The date of arguments is also telling, expect this to be one of the last decisions announced in June and probably by a 5-4 court. I'm guessing Scalia, Roberts, Alito & Thomas to overturn. Ginsberg, Stevens, Sotomayor & Kennedy to affirm. Breyer is the swing vote.

    Why would Kennedy affirm

    He was very pro 2nd Amendment in Heller

    I think Ginsberg might affirm

    I also think there is a possibility of a 9-0 vote to overrule Cruikshank.
