It could be the first major Second Amendment ruling in a decade. We’re talking about the case called New York Rifle and Pistol Association v. Corlett, which the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear. Locke’s Mitch Kokai talked about the case with Campbell Law School professor Greg Wallace, who is a Second Amendment expert.
So what is the New York case all about?
The makeup of the Supreme Court is different since the last big Second Amendment cases were decided. Justice Amy Coney Barrett now sits on the court, and that could make a difference, according to Professor Wallace.
By the way, Justice Barrett has just signed a book deal. I can’t wait to read it. She’s an originalist who clerked for the late Justice Antonin Scalia.
