The Supreme Court of the United States has set Nov. 3rd as the hearing date for the most important gun rights case since 2010. The case, NY State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc., et al. v. Bruen will decide whether Americans have a right to carry a firearm outside of their homes.

The last two cases, Heller v. DC in 2008 and McDonald v. Chicago in 2010 did not answer the questions presented in the NYSRPA case but focused on the elimination of total gun bans in Washington, DC and Chicago, respectively and incorporating the Second Amendment to the states. Gun rights activists have sought a high court ruling on the right to carry for years. Opponents of the right to carry fear a ruling favoring gun rights will eliminate strict gun control laws in largely Democrat controlled states.

Their fears are well-founded.
