SCOTUS Gun Watch – Week of 5/10/21

By on May 10, 2021 Categories: ,

Other than the new ANJRP petition challenging New Jersey’s prohibition of high-capacity magazines, it has been fairly quiet since the Court granted Corlett. The parties recently requested an extension of time for the briefing in Corlett, with the opening brief due on July 2 and the response brief due August 23. It will certainly be an interesting summer as we track these developments.
