“Newer laws that take guns away from abusive husbands or partners, and from distraught or mentally disturbed individuals, could be overturned. Laws that regulate access to assault-style weapons — far more lethal than anything our Founding Fathers could have imagined — are also at risk.
“Kavanaugh’s extreme take on the Second Amendment would undermine other constitutional rights as well.
