Could the Justices rule that "may issue" laws in states like California, Massachusetts and New York are unconstitutional, and that all states must be shall issue?
Not with this case. They would affirm the 7th Circuit's ruling. Like Heller saying nothing about bearing arms in public, it'll take another case like the one in Maryland or New York to spell the death knell of "may issue."
Violence is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and valorous feeling which believes that nothing is worth violence is much worse. Those who have nothing for which they are willing to fight; nothing they care about more than their own personal safety; are miserable creatures who have no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of those better than themselves.
