Not wanting to tarnish tragedy for his loved ones, but this is a very interesting development.

Justice Scalia was one of the four deeply conservative justices on the supreme court. His death means that President Obama will have to nominate another judge to fill the seat. Suddenly Obama’s lame duck status as a president about to leave office changes. This will affect his legacy.

The conservatives on the Court can no longer straight down gun control legislation if it made it through Congress. The process will be incredibly messy.
