The Supreme Court's Gun Docket
In December 2019, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a Second Amendment case for the first time in nearly a decade—New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York (NYSRPA). Along with that case, nearly a dozen cert petitions are pending before the Court that raise complicated Second Amendment questions, like those concerning bans on assault weapons or high-capacity magazines, laws requiring individuals to show good cause to obtain a license to carry in public, and other regulations on firearms. Professors April G. Dawson (NCCU School of Law), Greg Wallace (Campbell Law School), and Joseph Blocher (Duke Law School) on NYSRPA and the Supreme Court's gun docket.
