The Associated Press reports:
The Supreme Court struck down a New York law Thursday that only lets firearm owners receive a concealed carry license if they have “proper cause,” a blow to gun control advocates that marks the court’s most significant Second Amendment ruling in over a decade and could roll back gun control measures across the country.
The court’s decision comes on the heels of a string of mass shootings from mid-May to early June that jolted the nation and acted as a catalyst for Congress to once again search for consensus on a legislative plan to curb gun violence.
The Supreme Court’s fourth and final opinion of the day is in Bruen. In a 6–3 opinion, Thomas writes that New York’s strict limits on the concealed carry of firearms in public violates the Second Amendment. https://t.co/QtXnGlobBG
