The Rahimi Oral Argument

  • Date:
  • November 8th, 2023

By: Andrew Willinger

The Supreme Court heard oral argument yesterday morning in United States v. Rahimi, a Second Amendment challenge to the federal ban on gun possession for those subject to certain state-issued domestic violence restraining orders.  The oral argument audio is available here, and the transcript can be accessed here.  We previously covered the Fifth Circuit's decision in the case striking down the federal prohibition here and here

We'll have analysis of the argument on the blog in the coming weeks and months leading up to an expected decision next year.
