NYSRPA v Bruen Heard at Supreme Court on November 3, 2021

The Supreme Court of the United States heard oral arguments in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen case yesterday. I listened to the arguments and found them interesting, but will not prognosticate on an outcome.

Given the significant nature of a case that deals with the Bill of Rights, we can expect that an Opinion will take a while to produce. My personal expectation is that we will not hear anything further from the Court until the final opinions for the Term are issued in June 2022.

For those that wish to listen to the arguments, go to https://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/audio/2021/20-843.

If you would prefer to read a transcript of the arguments, go to https://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/2021/20-843_f2q3.pdf
