While so much attention is being given to the White House and Capitol Hill regarding gun control and gun owners’ rights following back-to-back mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, there are other decisions that will be made soon from the other branch of government. The Supreme Court is set to decide on cases involving firearms and the 2nd Amendment later this year.
This will be an important test to the reshaped Supreme Court following two appointments by President Trump. While the bench is now considered to be “conservative” by most analysts, Chief Justice John Roberts has sided with the four progressive Justices as much as he has sided with the four conservative ones establishing himself as the true swing vote who can single-handedly decide the fate of many cases.
How Roberts votes on these cases will tell us a lot about the state of the bench and whether or not the President’s efforts have been enough to sway it towards the right. If Roberts continues to be the man in the middle, denying his past stance as a de facto moderate conservative, then it may be necessary for the President to have one more appointment during his time in the White House in order to truly make the court stand upon Constitutional originalism.
