SCOTUS Sides With Gun Owners

(Washington, DC) — The Supreme Court is making a stand on the Second Amendment. In a New York case, the High Court ruled 6-3 that people can carry a handgun for self-defense. The case involved a challenge to whether states can decide who receives a concealed carry license. New York is one of eight states that could deny a permit to anyone if “they have not demonstrated a strong reason to carry a weapon in public.” In a majority conservative opinion, the Court reinforced an individual’s right to keep and bear arms at home for self-defense.
