SCOTUS Gun Watch – Week of 12/16/19

By on December 17, 2019 Categories: ,

After all the excitement the last few weeks, it has been quiet at the Court for gun cases. No new petitions were filed this week, and we’ve seen no more movement on any of the pending ones. It also seems that NYSRPA is more than likely going to take a few more weeks or months, and not days, for the Court to issue its decision. We’ll be watching when the Court next convenes in the New Year!
