The road to the Supreme Court has been a bumpy one, Mr. Levy said, thanks mostly to the National Rifle Association.

“The N.R.A.’s interference in this process set us back and almost killed the case,” he said. “It was a very acrimonious relationship.”

“Their thinking was,” Mr. Levy said, “‘good case, might win in the appellate court but it could be a problem if it reaches the Supreme Court.’”

Wayne LaPierre, the N.R.A.’s chief executive officer, largely confirmed that characterization. “There was a real dispute on our side among the constitutional scholars about whether there was a majority of justices on the Supreme Court who would support the Constitution as written,” Mr.
LaPierre said.

Both men said the N.R.A. and Mr. Levy’s team were now on good terms.

LaPierre may have been right. We'll see.

Gura didn't seem too enthused by the NRA either.

They're really going to have a fair amount of egg on their faces if/when this goes our way.
