On Monday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a challenge to New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Corlett. “The impact of this case is potentially much greater on states that have higher levels of restrictions of concealed carry, as it would radically expand the right to carry in those states,” he added. “The risk to the broader public becomes far more relevant when those rights to concealed carry are extended to all gun owners.”For more than a decade, the U.S. Supreme Court has narrowly avoided weighing in on cases that could impact gun rights. “There was a sense that the Supreme Court was too divided on the issue to provide helpful guidance in elaborating what the scope of the Second Amendment was, under the old makeup of the court,” Lytton said. “It's absolutely a sign that the court has shifted since Justice Barrett was confirmed,” Giffords Law Center Litigation Director Hannah Shearer told VICE News.
