Does anyone here believe Thomas wrote....

that "majority" opinion? I think it was written by the Federalist Society and he just scrawled his name on it.

2. Alito wrote it

But he's one and the same with the Federalist Society.

6. The OP could be referring to the gun opinion

Which Thomas wrote.

9. No.

I haven't read the opinion and thought since Thomas is the senior justice that he wrote the opinion. Sorry for my mistaken supposition.

10. Thomas wrote a solo concurring opinion on the abortion ruling...

he's off sitting on his own far right branch that's hopefully about to break!

5. The majority opinion was written by Alito and concurred in by Thomas, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh and Barrett

The premise of your post is mistaken.

7. Thomas probably did write his concurring statement.

He was just leveraging Alito's draft opinion.
Which makes me think he was involved in leaking the draft.
Probably leaked to keep Kavenaugh and perhaps Gorsech in line to overturn Roe, as Kavenaugh's statement was really weak.
But yeah, it's definitely in line with the Federalist Society Platform, so It wouldn't be difficult for him to write.

8. Assuming this is yesterday's gun ruling

Yes, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had the framework written years ago - at least the part rewriting the levels of legal scrutiny for gun cases. Long term, that part is probably going to be more impactful than the gun carry change itself. It sets the stage for shredding most gun laws on the books today.
