Supreme Court Takes Major NRA Second Amendment Case from New York

Supreme Court Takes Major NRA Second Amendment Case from New York

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...case-new-york/

WASHINGTON, DC The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted review in the first Second Amendment case in almost a decade, a case supported by the National Rifle Association (NRA), and perhaps signaling what to expect from the new membership of the Supreme Court.
New York law forbids residents from owning any handguns without a permit, and that permit allows the holder to possess guns only in their home or en route to or from one of seven shooting ranges in the city. A gun owner cannot transport a firearm outside the home for any other purpose, even if it is unloaded and locked in a case in the trunk of a car.

The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association and several of its members sued in federal court, arguing that this statute is unconstitutional.

And NOT about the SCOTUS deciding to hear it which is where the significance of it lies.

When SCOTUS takes a case does it mean this year a ruling will be made? by Oct. 1st? trying to think positive here.
As someone else asked (mxrider?) in the RGB thread, can she vote while in the hospital?

Ha! Extremely slim chance of a ruling this year. It won't even be argued until this Fall. Decision expected sometime before July 2020. As for Ginsburg, can't comment.

I'm not sad that Rhenquist participated in SCOTUS votes while recovering at home from cancer treatment during some oral arguments in 2005. Fair's fair.

Taking this one doesn't mean skipping others. We've had a lot of patience over this sort of thing. I still have more, especially now that there's some originalist light at the end of this current tunnel.
