New Blog Feature: SCOTUS Gun Watch, Episode 1

We’re excited to announce a new blog feature that will be a recurring Monday fixture of the blog throughout the Supreme Court’s Term. Each week, we will provide an up-to-date run down of where things stand with the Court’s firearms law and Second Amendment docket. To that end, each Monday will feature an updated chart below based on action taken at the Court throughout the prior week, including new petitions for certiorari that have been filed, Court action on currently pending petitions, changes in deadlines or notations that a case has been set for conference or relisted, etc. We’ll do our best to ensure accuracy, but if you notice anything missing or outdated, please feel free to let us know at firearmslaw@law.duke.edu.
