Supreme Court to hear new 2nd Amendment case

Volokh ConspiracyFor the first time in nearly a decade, the Supreme Court has voted to hear argument in a Second Amendment case. Although the schedule has not been set, oral argument in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York, New York could take place this Spring. The case presents the Supreme Court with the opportunity to address an eccentric and abusive New York law, and, more broadly, to begin reining in lower court nullification of the Supreme Court's precedents in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago.

Volokh has a lot of details about the case. The fact that the now presumably solid conservative court is willing to hear the case suggests that they have at least 5 votes for a 2nd Amendment that exists outside the home. The questions surrounding Ginsbug's health at the moment only make things more interesting.
