The Supreme Court acted on Caetano v. Massachusetts, the “stun gun” case in which Attorney Langer, on behalf of Commonwealth Second Amendment, filed an amicus brief. The Supreme court granted certiorari and, without need of a hearing, REVERSED the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court's decision and remanded the case back to that court for action consistent with the Supreme Court's decision.

In a concurrence joined by Justice Thomas, Justice Alito presented a detailed analysis and refutation of the errors in the SJC's decision. As Comm2A's position was the SJC was in error, Justice Alito's concurrence ratified Comm2A's argument and gratified its supporters.
