Supreme Court rules in favor of 2nd Amendment in New York case
We'll get a lot of detailed commentary as people read the case, but the bottom line is that ordinary people won. The Supreme Court declared that New York's rules about carrying firearms and specifically their rules about who qualified for a license to do so were unconstitutional. New York pistol permits have a lot of discretion involved, and it was -- until this ruling -- very difficult for an ordinary person to get one. Celebrities, police, armed security, politicians and their donors, sure. Ordinary people not so much.
