SCOTUS smacks down NY and 2nd Appeals

You know its bad when not only does this court generate a unanimous decision but Sotomayor writes it up with concurring opinions written by GORSUCH and BROWN.


Seems like the right decision if Sotomayor is writing up the unanimous verdict.
Where’s “bad” part?

CBS News thinks that the NRA is a “Guns Rights group.” That is pretty bad, since it is a lobbying group for gun manufacturers, and not a fun gun club for bros (and sisses).

The bad part was the decision by the 2nd Appeals.

The NRA is a gun rights group. That has some overlap with gun manufacturers because if no one will make new ones due to onerous regulations then the rights don’t matter much.

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”.

While reputational risk is a very real thing, financial regulators probably should tread lightly, and avoid being too specific, when overseeing how their regulated entities consider it.

I appreciate the creativity Vullo exhibited…but it was overreach.
