On Tuesday, the high court said it will take up a right-to-carry gun control case -- the first time it’s taken up a major second amendment case in nearly a decade.
The court will examine the legality of New York’s ban on transporting handguns outside city lines, even if those handguns are locked and unloaded.
The suit pits the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association against the City of New York. The law itself is a minor one, but depending on how broadly the court rules, the implications could be far reaching for concealed carry and the issue of transporting a gun outside the home.
With Justice Kavanaugh on the court, what is the likely outcome of the case? What kind of implications could it have for concealed carry? Is this a bellwether for a new SCOTUS approach to the second amendment?
