Updates on the case will continue to be posted at www.bumpstockcase.com.
It should be remembered that the key issue is not really bump stocks. The key issue is whether or not any government agency can reinterpret the black letter law to outlaw something or some action that they had expressly said was legal earlier.
One thought on “Chief Justice Roberts Refuses To Issue Stay”
Amazing that we can't seem to appoint constructionist judges who stay constructionist. Roberts has done some good things on the bench, but his failure to overturn the individual mandate combined with his decisions in a myriad of small things like this make the prospect of governmental reform seem dim and far away.
