Constitutional Law Keyed to Barnett
New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., v. City of New York, New York
Citation:140 S. Ct. 1525 (2020)
Petitioners argued that a New York City firearms rule violated their Second Amendment rights because the law prevented individuals from transporting firearms to a second home or shooting range outside of the city. After the case was accepted by the Supreme Court, the law was amended to allow Petitioners to transport firearms to a second home or shooting range outside of the city. Petitioners argued that the law still could infringe on their rights, because they may not be allowed to make stops (i.e. for food, gas, restroom, etc.) on their way out of the city to their final destinations. The City argued that those stops were permissible.
Petitioners did not seek damages in the first lawsuit, but added claims for damages here. The Court allowed the Court of Appeals and District Court to consider whether petitioners could add claims for damages with respect to the law prior to modification.
