I listened to the oral argument live yesterday. Most commentators I've seen think the Court is likely to grant relief, though there is some debate about how broad it will be. I did relish a question from one of the justices (I don't know all their voices) who asked the state's attorney about a word she left out of a quote in a footnote in her brief. It was an early law or ordinance that made it an offense to ride out armed, but it was really an offense to ride out armed "offensively." The justice thought it entirely changed the meaning of the ordinance, but the state's attorney stuck to her guns (pun intended) and disagreed.This is the sort of thing, IMO, that one should never do in a brief.
