    Supreme Court Ditches Massachusetts Gun Law

    Published on

    Following its rejection of a New York concealed carry law in June, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) on Monday struck down a Massachusetts gun law that focused on individuals getting a handgun license.

    Alfred Morin, the plaintiff in the case Morin v. Lyver, was unable to obtain a new handgun license because of his two out-of-state convictions for weapons possession, according to the New York Post. If a potential owner has a history of nonviolent misdemeanor convictions, Massachusetts law places severe restrictions on the purchase and use of weapons, the site reported.

    The court order noted that the SCOTUS decided to overturn the regulation after analyzing the law. Referring to the June decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, the court then referred the Act to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit for additional consideration.

    The Supreme Court of the United States invalidated a New York State law that required applicants for concealed carry permits to demonstrate “proper cause” in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen. According to the SCOTUS file, the decision followed the denial of concealed carry permits to Rensselaer County, New York residents Robert Nash and Brandon Koch because they did not meet the state’s “proper cause” criteria while requesting to carry a pistol in public for general self-defense.

    Clarence Thomas, a Supreme Court justice, remarked in the court’s 6-3 majority ruling in June, “After reviewing the Anglo-American history of public carry, the Court concludes that respondents have not met their burden to identify an American tradition justifying New York’s proper-cause requirement.”
