Show Your Papers law and Supreme Court

So, the good news: the Supreme Court decided that Arizona's law requiring POC to show their citizenship papers to vote is wrong.

Bad news: Will Arizona listen? After all, the Supreme Court struck down the laws making sodomy (anal sex, kinky sex, gay sex, etc) illegal YEARS, even DECADES ago, but those laws are still on the books. The thing is, the Supreme Court can say whatever it wants, but the states are apparently under no real obligation to abide by its decisions.

So now the great question: will Arizona be forced to listen to the Supreme Court, or will they put their fingers in their ears and go "La dee da dee doo..."
