The ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen has nullified the “proper cause” requirement for concealed carry permits across several states. The case, which ended in a 6-3 ruling in favor of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, should ensure that Americans living in “may issue” concealed carry states can get concealed carry permits without having to jump through additional hoops. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in his opinion, “We conclude that respondents have failed to meet their burden to identify an American tradition justifying New York’s proper cause requirement.”

Moving on from this ruling, states like New York and California should have to drop these high-bar requirements that stop regular citizens from exercising their 2nd Amendment rights. But instead,  these states might be gearing up for another fight.

Accoridng to AmmoLand:

Non-elected “Governor” Kathy Hochul was infuriated that she can no longer control the rights of New Yorkers. Upon learning of the Supreme Court decision, Hochul said in a tweet:

“It is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons.”

She also said in response to this ruling,

“We are closely reviewing our options, including calling a special session of the legislature. Just as we swiftly passed nation-leading gun reform legislation, I will continue to do everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe from gun violence.”

It would appear that some states, New York at the moment, are going to try and push back on this ruling and keep these restrictions in place or replace them with something similar to avoid violating the ruling.
