Just makes the question bigger.
I agree that he's "set for life" but it requires responsible investment/spending, but if he lives gvir culture style he'll be bankrupt pretty quickly.

If the gvir culture is unsustainable for someone with $52m in the bank, it says more about the gvir culture and less about the $52m.

This is just one aspect of how big lottery winners are typically far worse off a decade after winning than before they won.

One of the pros of receiving it as an annuity. Hopefully at some point they get their head on straight.

Yep. Fiscally, annuity is dumb (inflation and time value of money), but from a human emotion standpoint it may be the better option.

This is often discussed when analyzing lottery winning best strategies. Literally sometimes less is more

I always tell people that I just want to win 1-5mm dollars.

I can take my money quietly, and no-one will bother me.

Does this mean the good folks are now allowed to have guns as well ? It would be nice to even the playing field.

I know this ruling may not be applicable inside a school, but imagine if one teacher in Uvalde had a concealed weapon?

The way my imagination sees this is a western style shootout between people who are untrained killing many children stuck in the middle

To me it seems more that Kavanaugh's opinion is about pushing back on the lies that gun control advocates will say about this ruling. It does not limit the reach of the majority (to which he and Roberts signed on).

I did not yet read the whole opinion, but the Syllabus explicitly mentions that “laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings" and makes it clear that those can be fine.

Why would you do that when you can just go to people you agree with and see what they cherry picked on Twitter?

The teacher might have ended up like John Hurley, the good samaritan who used his gun to kill an active shooter.  Police had been called, and as they ran up they saw the man with a gun... and killed Hurley.
