The thing is, in theory at least, a constitutionally protected right can’t be burdened unless there is both a compelling state interest in the restriction and the restriction is tailored to the minimum necessary to achieve the goal.* Rejecting 1 in 5 of every ammo purchase with a 99% false positive rate doesn’t even start to pass that test.

I think that between the last couple of years of judicial appointments and the increasing aggresiveness of gun control proponents, we may be looking at some solid 2A rulings in the next 10 years.

* I’m summarizing my vague memory of Con Law from many years ago without actually taking the time to look it up.
