Supreme Court Strikes Down New York's Proper Cause Requirement for Concealed Carry

New York State Rifle and Pistol Association  (NYSRPA) v. Bruen centered on denials for permits under New York’s concealed carry permitting law. The NYSRPA filed suit claiming that one of its members was eligible for a permit but was denied because of New York’s requirement that concealed carry applicants prove why they need to carry a gun.
