Next verse, same as the first: https://comm2a.org/ot2019/

There are now 8 2A cases being held, if I counted right. Probably 11 by the end of Feb.

I am aware of the thread, I started it. The title of that thread is "1st Circuit Appeal of MA AWB Case (Worman v Baker)". The case is no longer in the 1st Circuit and the two main parties are Worman and Healy according to SCOTUS. I figured a new thread would be appropriate.

So, all these cases are being held for NYC. If NYC doesn't reach the merits on mootness grounds, then the Court will have lots of cases to choose from for a grant. Anyone want to start a betting pool (no money, just fun) on which case they will grant, if NYC goes away?

I would think it won't really matter which case is finally decided. The held cases cover enough of the horizon that the most likely opinion - regardless of the case taken - will be a decision on how 2A cases should be decided rather than what the decision should be.

But I don't think NYS will be mooted. If it were to be, and one of the "held" cases revived, then the decision would be kicked into the Oct 2020 term, and it's not clear the Court would favor that.

I am not a lawyer.

Mance v. Barr implicates a federal law. Zero chance it gets mooted.

All the other 2A cases implicate state laws. Granting one of those runs the risk of riling up the anti's to start the mootness shenanigans all over again... especially if they get away with it in NYSRPA.

Mance is also a very easy case to resolve. At the time of the founding, you could travel across state lines to acquire a firearm in common-use.
