Kavanaugh Asks if Texas Abortion Law Could Be Model for Bans on Gun Rights, Free Speech

Justice Brett Kavanaugh floated the possibility of Texas's abortion law becoming a model for states to restrict other constitutional rights, such as gun rights under the Second Amendment.

Kavanaugh pressed Texas Solicitor General Judd Stone on the hypothetical during oral arguments at the Supreme Court Monday for two challenges to S.B. 8—the Lone Star State's controversial law prohibiting abortions when a so-called "fetal heartbeat" can be detected, which is as early as six weeks into pregnancy.

2. Exactly right. It could be.

I'm no fan of Kavanaugh, but he kinda nailed this one: If the wingnuts want to enable private vigilante lawsuits to try to get around the state action requirement for challenging a law's constitutionality, they might want to stop and consider how that same principle could be turned against their pet causes.

6. Exactly right. Kavanaugh is tainted, but he is onto something here.

He may have actually poked a pin in this texas balloon.

7. While his character leaves something to be desired, Kavanaugh is not a stupid man.

He's certainly smart enough to see that the TX law could be an exploding cigar for the right wing.

4. Let's hope that's their "test balloon" for public opinion, getting the magats

ready for reality. Wouldn't it be lovely if the magats started demanding the justices retire!

9. Maybe he's framing the question to determine if there were just some things that ...

... just couldn't be modeled after the Texas abomination law, and writes the majority opinion that not only is the Texas law unconstitutional; but also the way that law was modeled, no law like it would be Constitutional.



Nah. Who am I kidding?
