    if their laws don't go as far as the Massachusetts law that was struck down.

    That paragraph I put in block quote came from the MAJORITY OPINION.  That's a statement by Justice Roberts, joined by Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, Ginsburg, and Kagan (five votes) of the kinds of laws that were NOT affected by the McCullen decision.  That's a statement of the buffer zone laws that are NOT "gone."

    How anyone can actually READ the McCullen decision -- including that paragraph telling Massachusetts what kind of buffer zone laws it CAN enact -- and then say that buffer zones are "gone" is beyond me.
