In Rosemond v. United States, decided this past term, the Court spoke to the requirements under 18 U.S.C. § 2 for liability as an aider and abettor to the use or carriage of a firearm during a crime of violence or drug trafficking crime in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 924(c). Here I offer my reading of Rosemond. I hope it will be useful to litigants and lower courts (and law professors) as they try to understand what the Court said and didn’t say — or maybe should have said differently — as it addressed Rosemond’s arguments.
