At the close of the year of the first Second Amendment cert grant in nearly a decade (setting Caetano aside), there are half a dozen petitions that have been discussed at conference and are awaiting the Court’s resolution of NYSRPA. That resolution could come next week, or it could take another 6 months. But one thing seems clear: with the new composition of the Supreme Court, the justices appear eager to more actively police the boundaries of the Second Amendment and advocates seem to have received the message.
Two cases are already up for discussion at conference in early January, Guedes and Worman. The former should not need to wait on NYSRPA for resolution, but I suspect the latter will be held. The next year is setting up to be another one where the Court could have a major impact on how the government can regulate firearms.
