FPC’s Statement on Supreme Court Arguments in Major Second Amendment Case Challenging New York’s “May-Issue” Handgun Carry Scheme

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 3, 2021) — The United States Supreme Court heard oral arguments today in the case of NYSRPA v. Bruen, a lawsuit challenging New York’s “proper cause” requirement and “may-issue” scheme for the issuance of licenses to carry firearms in public. This important case could not only help restore the right to carry firearms in hostile states like New Jersey, California, Hawaii, and Maryland, but also provide key instructions on the mode of scrutiny that lower courts must use when evaluating Second Amendment claims. Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC)’s brief in the case, joined by preeminent Second Amendment scholar and Antonin Scalia Law School Professor Emerita, Joyce Lee Malcom, and authored by former Texas Solicitor General and supreme court practitioner, Scott A. Keller, can be viewed here and at FPCLegal.org. Legal experts from FPC Law are available for interviews.
