This morning, the Supreme Court held oral argument in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. The case has the potential to revolutionize Second Amendment doctrine, and we’ve covered the case several times on this blog, including in the overview post here and our what-to-watch-at-argument post here. We’ll have much more to say in the days and weeks ahead about what to make of the oral arguments and our reactions to both the advocates and the justices, but for now, here are some of our very quick, initial first takes on several aspects of this morning’s discussion:
I also live-tweeted my way through the argument, so to tide people over until there’s a transcript (or to read a condensed version of the transcript), here’s a link to the thread:
