    I believe the gist of JR's comment is to point out how contentious a ruling Heller really was--and still is, particularly now.

    By that measure, despite the court's (not always consistent) respect for precedent, Heller, rather like Citizens United, strikes me as a ruling that is rather ripe for being overturned, either entirely or in part, with even a minimal shift in the Court. After all it took only 17 years for Bowers vs Hardwick to be overturned and the overturning was done by a court not far to the left of the Roberts court.

    The right case, argued the right way, might have very significant effects.
