SCOTUS Strikes Down New York State Concealed Carry Law

Published on

In the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Second Amendment rights and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

Justice Clarence Thomas’ 6-3 decision held that New York’s requirement for “proper cause” to obtain a concealed carry license violates the Constitution. This prevents law-abiding citizens with normal self-defense needs from exercising Second Amendment rights to keep and bear arms publically for self-defense. Justices Kagan, Sotomayor, and Justice Breyer were the dissenters.

Justice Thomas states in the introduction that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments provide protection for an individual’s right to keep a gun for self-defense.
