SCOTUS Gun Watch – Week of 1/20/20

By on January 21, 2020 Categories: ,

Due to the MLK holiday, the Court’s order list this week came out today. It was another relatively quiet week—no new cert petitions and no big action on the pending ones. We’re still suspecting that NYSRPA could come any day…or not for another five months.
