Re-read BCR’s comment with care. It does not “all rest on a single vote in the SCOTUS” because the court is being guided into a minefield of its own devising; should that “single vote” go the wrong way, SCOTUS opens a self-inflicted world of hurt. Those votes do not happen in a vacuum, they have direct and profound & untenable consequences on other sensitive issues. As he wrote, SCOTUS will face an unavoidable decision on NFA: should that “single vote” fail to overturn NFA then poll taxes will become legal - not an option a SCOTUS judge can or will take.
The war has been long under way. Opposing forces have made choices which will soon leave them the option of either surrender or falling off a cliff.
Oh, and if ANY of those “Fast & Furious” items are subject to NFA, the consequences to the perps magnify tenfold.
Go back and re-read Heller. Look at the twisted, convoluted decisions that SCOTUS has rendered in the past with regard to firearm rights.
Liberals do not care if they open the door to poll taxes. In fact, they may see those as the means to fight Voter ID.
Deceit and fraud are not outside the scope of liberals, even those on the SCOTUS.
