Supreme Court Takes up First Second Amendment Dispute in Almost 10 Years

The Supreme Court on Monday will for the first time in nearly a decade wade into the debate over gun rights, as it hears oral arguments in a dispute over a New York City rule restricting the transportation of licensed handguns.

Brought by three firearms owners who live in New York City and the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, the case centers around a regulation that barred firearms owners from transporting their handguns to homes or shooting ranges outside city limits.

Since the case was filed, the regulation has been changed, but under the previous rule, gun owners with "premises" licenses were allowed only to transport their unloaded and locked handguns to seven shooting ranges in New York City.

Gun rights advocates and the Trump administration argue the prior restriction violates the Second Amendment and say the right to keep and bear arms includes the right to transport guns outside of the home.

But city officials are urging the Supreme Court, now with a 5-4 conservative majority, to throw out the case altogether because they amended the measure at the heart of the challenge in July. Now, handgun owners can take their licensed firearms to shooting ranges and second homes beyond city boundaries.
