Only initially, but this will be easy to clean up.
If we get a positive ruling, "carry" will be the same as "abortion" except that the red-blue states will be reversed. All tricks that have been tried in the past ended up not working and ended up only affirming the SCOTUS ruling.
Here is a glimpse of what can happen: due to games with sensitive areas, SCOTUS "determines that sensitive areas are only those that have secured perimeter and metal detectors." If the antis keep pushing against SCOTUS, this is what *will* happen.
