SCOTUS Arguments

Reading the court tea leaves is folly, but we all do it anyway.

Been checking the oral argument transcript.  Normally this has been hashed out line by line elsewhere, but not this time, yet.  There is some, yes.  But not the big splash I'd have expected.  

Encouraging from CJ Roberts:  "The idea that you would need a license to exercise a right is unusual with regard to the Bill of Rights." 

Makes him sound friendly to Vermont style Constitution Carry.  Wouldn't that be a weird ruling in June?  Making the entire nation permitless at a stroke?  Way too much to ask for.  I truly doubt.  But....

I'd love to see that, but I agree it's unlikely.
I think it's more likely to push NY to shall issue for permits.
I'd like to see them overturn purchase permits like are required in NJ, MA, IL, and a few other places.

SCOTUS, meaning Roberts and the Dems, will rule howsoever they feel. The text of the Constitution means nothing. The will to power is everything.
