Oral Arguments in New York gun case online


Of Arms and the Law points us to the transcript of oral arguments in an important 2nd Amendment case at the Supreme Court. If you don't want to read the transcript directly, here's an article about the case., and another describing the important points from the arguments.

The even briefer summary: New York laws make it effectively illegal to transport firearms -- even legally owned and licensed under New York laws -- outside of the home. There are narrow exceptions for going directly to and from a range, and if you have the political pull you can in theory get a permit to carry with fewer restrictions.

I haven't had a chance to read the transcript yet (it's 81 pages!) but early reports suggest Roberts may be going wobbly. That would be bad. On the other hand, Second Amendment Foundation reports cautious optimism.
