New Jersey and California have opted to drop their unconstitutional requirements for conceal carry following the ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen.

The Supreme Court ruled that requirements, like New York’s “proper cause” requirement, are unconstitutional. In ruling this way, the Supreme Court nullified the requirements for concealed carry permits in other states like California and Hawaii. These requirements were excessive and essentially barred most state residents from ever exercising their right to bear arms.

New York’s “proper cause” requirement laid out that only those with an extreme need for self-defense, outside of everyday people’s typical concerns, could obtain these permits to conceal carry. With the court ruling, requirements like this will no longer be a problem for those who want to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights.

New Jersey ended its “justifiable need” requirement for concealed carry permits on June 24th, shortly after the ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen. New Jersey Attorney General Matt Platkin released a statement that read; “In reviewing an individual’s application for a permit to carry, the applicable law enforcement agency shall continue to ensure that the applicant satisfies all of the criteria of N.J.S.A. 2C:58-4d and N.J.A.C. 13:54-2.4, except that the applicant need not submit a written certification of justifiable need to carry a handgun.”

California Attorney General Rob Bonta put out a Legal Alert to all “All California District Attorneys, Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, County Counsels, and City Attorneys,” that read; “Although Bruen concerns a New York law, the Bruen majority specifically identifies California as one of six States that has an analogue to New York’s ‘proper cause’ standard. … Accordingly, it is the Attorney General’s view that the Court’s decision renders California’s ‘good cause’ standard to secure a permit to carry a concealed weapon in most public places unconstitutional. Permitting agencies may no longer require a demonstration of “good cause” in order to obtain a concealed carry permit.”

So, what about the restricted pistol licenses already obtained, do they become unrestricted?

That’s because they don’t want a challenge to their asinine laws
