The Supreme Court will decide this Term whether the Second Amendment protects the right to carry a gun outside the home. At issue in the case that will be mooted is a New York law that requires a person who wants to carry a concealed firearm outside the home to show “proper cause” – meaning a special need for self-protection. Two men challenged the law after New York rejected their concealed-carry applications. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit upheld the law.
