Aldisert is not stupid. He just doesn't like the result, so he is seeking the help of NJ counsel in support of a the result he favors, viz., the only issue is whether the test is objective enough to create a standard: "an objective need for self defense." We heard it repeatedly during the argument. Aldisert will thus opine that the 2A does extend outside the home, but nonetheless the 2A permits the state to require the citizen to show an objective need for self defense outside the home in order to carry outside the home. That is essentially the holding of Kachalsky for which Aldisert expressed so much admiration. I pray for a cert grant in Kachalsky.
