When it comes to guns, the justices duck

Editors, Washington Examiner

The Supreme Court declined to take up Rogers v. Grewal a New Jersey case. It's unclear why the court passed up this case when there are so many remaining loose ends in this area of jurisprudence. Perhaps the justices want a narrower question. Perhaps they are comfortable with letting lower courts develop more case law. Either way, the court has to recognize the restrictiveness of certain "good cause" provisions and deal with them. By passing up Rogers, the Supreme Court has declined an opportunity to instruct lower courts on the extent to which the Second Amendment protects the right to self-defense.
