“Enforcing the Supreme Court’s view of the Constitution was a problem I had been thinking about after reading arguments online from cynical right wingers. They argued that Supreme Court decisions in support of their interpretation of the Second Amendment did not matter since a state could, New York, they claimed, did, pass a law effectively preventing most citizens from owning firearms, enforce it until the case made it to the Supreme Court and the law was declared unconstitutional, then repeal it and pass another law achieving the same result through some different mechanism.” (09/16/23)
