SCOTUS Three Rulings:
1) 1st - in US v. Davis. The court holds that Section 924(c)(3)(B) is unconstitutionally vague.
The vote was 5-4. Gorsuch's opinion was joined by Ginsburg, Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan....
Kavanaugh dissents, joined by Thomas and Alito; Roberts joined all but one part of the dissent.
This was a case about the definition of the phrase “crime of violence,” for purposes of a federal criminal prosecution for using a gun during such a crime....
Kavanaugh's dissent is significantly longer than Gorsuch's opinion. It starts "Crime and firearms form a dangerous mix."

This will go down as another split between Gorsuch and Kavanaugh in terms of their tendency to side with the Court's liberal wing,
this is not remotely surprising to Court watchers. Gorsuch has channeled this aspect of Justice Scalia's jurisprudence (as many have noted) while Kavanaugh has -- throughout his career -- generally been a law-and-order conservative on issues like this one.” <end>
