Supreme Court to Hear First Major Gun Case in Nearly a Decade

HeadlineDec 02, 2019

The Supreme Court is slated to hear its first major gun case in nearly a decade. The justices will hear arguments today in a case over a New York City law that prohibited handgun owners from carrying their weapons anywhere other than seven firing ranges inside the city limits. The law has since been changed, and justices will first consider whether the case is moot and should be thrown out because the restrictions have already been reversed.
