Supreme Court Reverses New York Gun Law

New York, until recently, required its residents to seek a license were needed to demonstrate “due cause” to carry concealed guns and that they faced “a specific or unique” danger.

 

According to the 6-3 decision, the requirement violates the constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

 

The decision is likely to have an influence on other states that have stringent standards for concealed carry permits.

 

The conservative majority on the court, led by Justice Clarence Thomas, ruled that Americans have the right to carry “commonly used” guns for personal defense.

 

He said that the Second Amendment right, the right to keep and bear weapons is not a “second class” constitutional right susceptible to stricter limits “than other Bill of Rights protections.”

Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Stephen Breyer, all liberal justices, voted no and showed considerable dissent towards the decision.
