SCOTUS Gun Watch, Episode 7

The big recent news from the Supreme Court on guns is, of course, the oral argument in NYSRPA that happened on Monday morning. We’ve had some initial analysis of that argument, and will have some more later on. For now, I’m updating the SCOTUS Gun Watch with other pending petitions and a new one. As I’ve noted before, if the Court does dismiss NYSPRA as moot, that decision makes it all the more likely that one of the petitions below will be granted.

Of interest on those, Paul Clement, who represented NYSRPA and argued on Monday, also represents the challengers in Rogers v. Grewal.
