Lay question: "Not sufficiently tailored" and "government's compelling interest" are dog whistles for "strict scrutiny", no?

Would not make strategic sense to do imperfect work before the en banc panel, thus (nearly) assuring an overturning and circuit split. How might that question be addressed?

It's reasonable that this might reach SCOTUS late 2018, when there might be a second Trump Justice. What a kick if, because of Wolfwood, open carry becomes the enumerated right!
