Breaking news for the Second Amendment: The Supreme Court just issued a 6-3 opinion in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association. v. Bruen.
At issue is New York's "proper cause requirement" which forces applicants to prove "a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community" in order "to obtain an unrestricted license to 'have and carry' a concealed 'pistol or revolver'."
The opinion ruled that the requirement "violates the Fourteenth Amendment by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense."
