Major Second Amendment case awaiting Supreme Court decision

June 23, 2022

The court is expected to soon rule on New York's concealed carry law.The closely-watched case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Asso­ci­ation Inc. v Bruen, addresses whether New York state's concealed carry law violates the Second Amendment."The Supreme Court for the past 10 years or so has just not placed that hot-button issue on its docket.Local authorities currently are given the discretion to decide who receives a concealed carry license even if basic requirements are met.If New York's law remains unchanged, there are other Second Amendment cases in the pipeline that are seeking Supreme Court review, Miller said.
