Big 2nd Amend Case in Process
A number of states have argued (rightly so) that under the Second Amendment, applicants for concealed carry permits who meet all the requirements do not have to make a showing of specific need. The excellent opinion by the District Court is here. This case is also important because the lower court held that the Second Amendment is not limited to the home. I hope the U.S. Supreme Court will hear this case and clarify the scope and standard of review for the Second Amendment.
