Second Amendment-related cases are likely to come before the Supreme Court between this year and next after the new justice is sworn in, and cases that were previously rejected may get a second life.

President Trump is expected to name on Saturday his replacement for liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday. Ginsburg’s decisions over her 27 years on the Supreme Court consistently backed regulations of guns and ammunition.

That’s unlikely to be the case with the incoming justice, who Trump has said would be a woman.

After all, there’s a right-to-carry case percolating in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, Cam Edwards, editor of the Second Amendment news site Bearing Arms, told the Washington Examiner.
