Haven’t we been witnessing mass shootings every month in this country?
Aren’t people talking about ‘Gun Control’?
The US Supreme Court judges are gonna let us know in 6 months or so if people can actually just say they they just brough a gun for ‘personal use’ and have to be approved?
The case is a challenge to New York laws that tightly restrict ownership of guns….
Go read the Second Amendment…
It does NOT say anything about people having the ‘Right’ to own a gun….
It does talk about a militia, something that is long gone….
The question is likely to be one that previous courts have shied away from…
Given the increased gun violence now one wonders why this court would take up this case?
Maybe it Is because this country does have a “Gun Culture’?
After the court announced it was taking the case for argument next fall, the NRA said most states already agree the right to carry a weapon outside the home is fundamental.
“The [Supreme] Court rarely takes Second Amendment cases,” Jason Ouimet, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action said in a statement. “We’re confident that the court will tell New York and the other states that our Second Amendment right to defend ourselves is fundamental, and doesn’t vanish when we leave our homes.”
Gun-control advocates saw the decision and its timing as ominous.
“Over the past month, Americans have reckoned with a never-ending series of shootings in public places, including shootings by law enforcement,” Hannah Shearer, litigation director at the Giffords Law Center, said in a statement.
