"Also, the New York Rifle and Pistol Association has also decided not to appeal to the court, also citing the death of Scalia as a contributing factor."

Even before Scalia's death, the Court denied certiorari in several cases that had upheld the constitutionality of gun restrictions very similar to those struck down in Heller and McDonald. So, there was already speculation among Court-watchers that at least one Justice was having second thoughts about having joined Scalia in the Heller case. Without Scalia on the Court, at present there might be only three votes staunchly in favor of his interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. 

p.s., Ms. Scandle, I'd say your prediction might have been spot on. Let's see if he keeps this up and starts engaging in other cases too.

" On the case itself, "The men say the law should only cover intentional acts of abuse, and not those committed in the heat of an argument...""

As usual, the press can't get it correct. The issue revolves around the difference between truly intentional, purposeful conduct, as opposed to "reckless" conduct that has the same result. Nothing really to see here.

So, he breaks a decade-long silence to ask a question about something that neither party raised as an issue, in a case that might just be the most inconsequential one in recent memory. Makes perfect sense.

Alright, this from Yahoo, so consider the source, but...

On the case itself, "The men say the law should only cover intentional acts of abuse, and not those committed in the heat of an argument..."

Well, crickey I found it

w ww.supremecourt.go v/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/14-10154_5i36.pdf

It's a back-and-forth. Begins on page 35. It's actually 11 separated statements/questions, ending on page 40. Justice Breyer revisit's Justice Thomas' question on page 41 and wants an answer to it.
