The current balance is 51:49. Even with two GOP Senators abstaining from the vote, Pence's voice will the decisive. I don't foresee any issue, unless Trump changes his tactics.

Kennedy was mostly pro-2A, that probably won't change much for us, but this replacement may solidify the conservative line on other issues. Ginsburg won't voluntary retire in the current political layout.
