  • The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a group of firearms dealers’ emergency request to block various gun control measures recently passed in New York that they argued were unconstitutional and hurt their businesses.
  • The brief order, which had no noted dissents, marks the justices’ second denial this month of a request to block portions of New York’s new gun regulations, which have faced numerous legal challenges under the high court’s expansion of Second Amendment protections in June.
  • Last year’s decision, which struck down New York’s requirement for concealed carry permit applicants to show proper cause, enshrined a right for individuals to carry handguns outside the home and held that gun control measures must be consistent with the nation’s historical tradition.
