First, real talk: yes, Versus Trump really did get a shoutout at the impeachment hearings on Wednesday! More on that next week, and there's a link to the exchange in the shownotes. We recorded this episode before that happened, but rest assured that we'll respond to the Committee next week.

Meanwhile, on this week’s Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie discuss two guns cases. First, we discuss a court's definitive rejection of the Trump Administration's bizarre decision to try to permit the online publication of plans for 3d printed guns, and then we discuss the Supreme Court's Monday argument in the first Second Amendment case in a decade. We also have quick hits on a few other matters.

11/5/20  //  In-Depth Analysis

Contrary to challengers’ claim, Congress nowhere directed the Supreme Court to strike down the entire ACA if the individual mandate is invalidated.
