    It strikes me as likely that Reagan didn’t get the distinction between “X is repugnant” and “it is constitutional to ban X”. Reagan wasn’t exactly a legal scholar, and this quote seems to support the idea that he didn’t grasp the distinction.

    exactly the same criticism many of us have for the likes of Justices O’Connor, Blackmun, Kennedy….
