The NRA along with the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association has asked the Supreme Court to hear a challenge to New York’s concealed carry law.
The issue of course is New York’s requirement to show “proper cause” to carry a gun. Since self-defense is not considered proper cause this effectively denies permits to most everyone and in fact the heart of the issue is that New York uses this arbitrary standard on purpose to do just that.
It’s too soon to know if the Court will hear the case. It’s been something like a decade since the Court has taken a significant 2A case but with the recent addition of Amy Coney Barrett perhaps the time has come. Should the Supreme Court rule that providing “proper cause” to exercise our 2A rights is unconstitutional that could overturn all remaining “may issue” state laws across the country.
It is indeed time for another landmark 2A ruling.
