Throughout the hearings on his nomination to the Supreme Court, Judge Gorsuch avoided giving meaningful answers on a wide range of questions. When it comes to the Second Amendment, Gorsuch may have tipped his hand – and he may have shed some light on why the National Rifle Association thought it was worth investing a million dollars in television ads urging his confirmation.

While the gun lobby’s motivations to back such a bill are obvious (fewer regulations = more sales), the ways in which...
