A series of cases challenging California gun control in light of NYSRPA v. Bruen (2022) are set to begin Monday in federal court in San Diego.
Breitbart News reported the Supreme Court of the United States struck down New York’s proper cause requirement for concealed carry permit issuance on June 23, 2022, via Bruen.
In the majority opinion for the Bruen decision, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the Second Amendment protects an “individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.”
He noted, “Although we remarked in [District of Columbia v. Heller (2008)] that the need for armed self-defense is perhaps ‘most acute’ in the home, id., at 628, we did not suggest that the need was insignificant elsewhere. Many Americans hazard greater danger outside the home than in it…[and] the text of the Second Amendment reflects that reality.”
