Supreme Court Refuses To Decide On Public Carry Gun Rights

Description

On Monday, the US Supreme Court declined to decide whether the Constitution provides the right to carry a handgun in public, bypassing a major issue about firearm owners' rights simmering across the nation. The court announced it would not look into a California law requiring an individual to show "good cause" in order to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. As a practical matter, the law makes it difficult for most individuals to obtain a permit in the state's urban areas. In June of 2016, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the "Second Amendment does not protect in any degree the right to carry concealed firearms in public." The ruling caused outrage among advocates of gun rights but was celebrated by gun control groups. California currently bans openly carrying firearms in public, a challenge to that law is currently pending in a separate case.

  • U.S. Supreme Court To Hear Major New York Gun Rights Case

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday took up its biggest gun rights case in a nearly decade. The court will hear a challenge backed by the influential National Rifle Association lobby group to New York City’s strict limits on handgun owners transporting their firearms outside of the home. The nine justices will review a 2018 lower court ruling upholding the city’s restrictions after three gun owners and the NRA’s New York state affiliate sued claiming the regulations violated the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.” The case will be heard and decided in the court’s next term, which starts in October and ends in June 2020. The decision indicates a new interest on the court, where conservatives hold a 5-4 margin, on guns and is the first major gun case to come before the justices since 2010.
