In 6-3 Opinion, Supreme Court Strikes Down "Proper Cause" Requirement For Gun Licensing in New York and Five Other States

They ruled that there is no other core constitutional right for which it is necessary to apply for special permission from a judge before exercising.

Thomas delivered the opinion for the court.


The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self defense is not "a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees." We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need. That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant's right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self defense. New York's proper-cause requirement violates the Fourteenth Amendment in that it prevents law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their right to keep and bear arms. We therefore reverse the judgment of the Court of Appeals and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.


The Supreme Court addresses here New York State's "proper cause" standard for the issuance of unrestricted gun licenses. Citizens were required not just to show the sort of standard things to get a license -- no history of mental disorders, no criminal record, etc. -- but to then show to a judge a special individual need for a gun for self-defense.


A license applicant who wants to possess a firearm at home (or in his place of business) must convince a "licensing officer"--usually a judge or law enforcement officer--that, among other things, he is of good moral character, has no history of crime or mental illness, and that "no good cause exists for the denial of the license."
If he wants to carry a firearm outside his home or place of business for self-defense, the applicant must obtain an unrestricted license to "have and carry" a concealed "pistol or revolver." 400.00(2)(f ).

To secure that license, the applicant must prove that "proper cause exists" to issue it. If an applicant cannot make that showing, he can receive only a "restricted" license for public carry, which allows him to carry a firearm for a limited purpose, such as hunting, target shooting, or employment.


No New York statute defines "proper cause." But New York courts have held that an applicant shows proper cause only if he can "demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community." Rather, New York
courts generally require evidence "of particular threats, attacks or other extraordinary danger to personal safety."


The Court analyzes all other rights and finds that in cases where the government seeks to abridge citizen rights, it is the government which has the duty to prove that they have the right to abridge the right. It is not the citizen's duty to prove they have a special need to exercise the right, as is the case in "proper cause" license schemes.

The Supreme Court noted that the Courts of Appeals had developed a "two-step process" for supposedly applying the Court's Heller ruling which -- they don't say this explicitly -- was really a way to subvert it.

The two steps consisted of first identifying if the behavior being regulated by law was part of the historical Constitution right to bear arms. If it definitely was, then it couldn't be regulated. If it definitely was not, it could be regulated, and there was no need to proceed to step two. If it was unclear if the behavior being regulated was or was not part of the historic right to bear arms, the courts would then proceed to step two, which was a "means-ends" test which asked if the regulation was a well-constructed means to a noble end.

Courts were incentivized by this scheme to find a lot of constitutionally-protected bearing-arms activities to be located in the "gray zone" where they could then apply their invented "means-end" test, and discover -- surprise! -- that a gun control law did in fact satisfy their test.

The Supreme Court rejects this. A bit snarkily.


Since Heller and McDonald, the two-step test that Courts of Appeals have developed to assess Second Amendment claims proceeds as follows. At the first step, the government may justify its regulation by "establish[ing] that the challenged law regulates activity falling outside the scope of the right as originally understood."

The Courts of Appeals then ascertain the original scope of the right based on its historical meaning. If the government can prove that the regulated conduct falls beyond the Amendment's original scope, "then the
analysis can stop there; the regulated activity is categorically unprotected." But if
the historical evidence at this step is "inconclusive or suggests that the regulated activity is not categorically unprotected," the courts generally proceed to step two.

At the second step, courts often analyze "how close the law comes to the core of the Second Amendment right and the severity of the law's burden on that right." Ibid. (internal quotation marks omitted). The Courts of Appeals generally maintain "that the core Second Amendment right is limited to self-defense in the home." If a "core" Second Amendment right is burdened, courts apply "strict scrutiny" and ask whether the Government can prove that the law is "narrowly tailored to achieve a compelling governmental interest." Otherwise, they apply intermediate scrutiny and consider whether the Government can show that the regulation is "substantially related to the achievement of an important governmental interest." Both respondents and the United States largely agree with this consensus, arguing that intermediate scrutiny is appropriate when text and history are unclear in attempting to delineate the scope of the right.

Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history.
But Heller and McDonald do not support applying means-end scrutiny in the Second Amendment context. Instead, the government must affirmatively prove that its firearms regulation is part of the historical tradition that delimits the outer bounds of the right to keep and bear arms.

...

Moreover, Heller and McDonald expressly rejected the application of any "judge-empowering 'interest-balancing inquiry' that 'asks whether the statute burdens a protected interest in a way or to an extent that is out of proportion to
the statute's salutary effects upon other important governmental interests.'"

We declined to engage in means-end scrutiny because "[t]he very enumeration of the right takes out of the hands of government--even the Third Branch of Government--the power to decide on a case-by-case basis whether the right is really worth insisting upon."

We then concluded: "A constitutional guarantee subject to future judges' assessments of its usefulness is no constitutional guarantee at all."

The Court also notes that the dissent in Heller argued for an intermediate scrutiny standard -- a means-end test -- which the Court rejected. But which lawless, rebellious Courts of Appeals have backdoored into Heller anyway, effectively making the dissent the ruling opinion.

This Court now affirms: No, the ruling opinion of Heller is ruling.

83 I think this is the decision that Cornyn and the others were waiting for. This now gives them cover to shitcan the proposed "red flag" Stasi regime. I thought before this decision that it was all failure theater to make it look like they were "doing something." I'm now sure that it is (or will be) failure theater.

I wish I agreed, but I don't. The political damage is done, so why would Cornyn back away now?

Except every religious "revival" movement is weaker than the last for the very same reason.

But, the left is a lot like technology advances. they've won so many battles on expanding the boundaries for what is normal, that each successive battle and change comes sooner and is more significant than the last.

The move from "gay marriage" to "trans rights" in the past would have taken decades to develop and make inroads into law and society. But now it took literally months from the gay marriage decision to "trans rights" being center stage and gov't's starting to pass laws about letting men use girls' bathrooms etc. I can't even imagine what comes after "trans rights", but something will. I suspect it will be normalizing pedophilia (we've seen some movements in that direction already)

What happened to States rights... Now that SCOTUS has knocked down NY needing a permit for concealed carry... 100 years that state has had that law.. I thought these righties were all about states rights.. what did I miss

State's rights are only for persecuting women, POC, LGBTQ, and killing children. And for terrorizing Americans, and for keeping them under draconian control.

159 So I went down a rabbit hole of reading about obscure scotus cases. So many of them are 9-0 or 8-1 or 7-2 decisions. And with various coalitions for and against. Outside of the big ones we hear about, scotus agrees a lot more than disagree. And you will have a 7-2 decision where the 2 are Gorsuch and Kagan or other weird combos like that.

Tubular .22 magazines are exempt from the 10 round limit. But nothing larger iirc. I have a 15 round Marlin 60 my kids like to use that's legal here in NJ.

Posted by: Elric Blade at June 23, 2022 12:38 PM (iFTx/)

If this analysis is correct then its dumb. I will convince the base in the run up to the midterms that we are weak and will sell them out in a heartbeat on an issue that is important to them, when we had no need to, and then hope that the SCOTUS hands down a decision I can use to pretend it has frustrated my efforts.

I cannot believe it is correct.
Posted by: blaster at June 23, 2022 12:42 PM (6TxNR)
_________________________________

It's more subtle than that. Cornyn and the others didn't vote in favor of any actual bill. They voted in favor of opening up debate. And while informed conservatives were up in arms about him doing even that, the reality is that there are a lot of moderates and center-left voters who (ignorantly) support red flag laws. So politically I don't think it was the suicide run many think.

Iianm, this ends the practice of "may issue" a permit, which has long been interpreted to mean 'at the gubmint's discretion'. Now it will be 'shall issue' unless the gubmint can show good cause to not issue a permit.

But each hoop they add for shall issue will keep the majority of the state's population from bothering with the onerous process. And each hoop has to be challenged separately in federal court.

275 Many years ago I did a deep dive on the 2nd Amendment and came to these conclusions:

a) The 2nd Amendment is the “Middle Ground”, and the middle ground is a desirable objective because it has a good chance of being a “stable” solution (i.e., the polar opposite boundary of ‘no citizen can own a gun’ is not the 2nd Amendment, it is 'all citizens must own a gun').

b) It is illogical to include 'People' in the amendment, if the amendment does not apply to 'People' (e.g., none of the other amendments explicitly include a party that is not covered by the amendment).

c) It is illogical to conclude in this amendment the word "right" does not apply to the party explicitly noted, when the word "right" does apply to the party explicitly noted in the other amendments. (e.g., 7 other amendments explicitly define a party that is covered by the amendment, none of the other amendments have this logic contradiction).

315 Once again we see the leftys on the court will never actually listen to the constitution and will just make up their own laws. It was probably best displayed earlier in the week when Sotomayor babbled about things that aren't even in ther constitution (church and state) In the next Supreme Court the liberals will honestly have 3 people on their side who apparently can't even read, either that or they refuse to do the minimum when it comes to doing their job.

As for this ruling, it's nice, but does any ruling matter any more? We know that liberal states will still do whatever they want and just ignore these rulings, as a Democrat DoJ won't do crap about it, and if a party sues them over it they'll have to spend millions and wait years to maybe, if they're lucky, get their case back to thr supreme court where they need to hope that another 2 illiterate liberals don't make it on the bench. Democrats have shown again and again they don't take any SCotUS ruling as law, and they will continue to ignore it until they start facing person consequences.

I remember reading an interview w/Hogg's mother shortly after Parkland. Some Harvard alum had approached and said they saw Hogg as a future leader, and wanted him exposed to the right sort of people (i.e. Harvardites). Mom said they in no way had the resources to send him to Harvard. The Harvard folk said "Don't worry."

The move from "gay marriage" to "trans rights" in the past would have taken decades to develop and make inroads into law and society. But now it took literally months from the gay marriage decision to "trans rights" being center stage and gov't's starting to pass laws about letting men use girls' bathrooms etc. I can't even imagine what comes after "trans rights", but something will.

Sure, its now legally easier to conceal carry, right up until you actually need that gun, then you will be judged by a New York jury and defamed globally by the international media(including the conservative media if you defend yourself against the wrong skin color). Just ask the McMichaels.

And how well did NYS protect it's citizens in Buffalo? NYS has a red flag law. The shooter threatened to shoot up his school a year ago - clearly a candidate for red flag invocation. Yet nothing happened. Not by family, friends, or the "state" - a la NY State Troopers.

I don't want the state to protect me. Especially after repeated examples of the failure of the state to do anything but cover their own ass and leave mine swinging in the breeze.

405 A short prologue is in order. Even before the Civil War commenced in 1861, this Court indirectly affirmed the importance of the right to keep and bear arms in public. Writing for the Court in Dred Scott v. Sandford, 19 How. 393 (1857), Chief Justice Taney offered what he thought was a parade of horribles that would result from recognizing that free blacks were citizens of the United States. If blacks were citizens, Taney fretted, th ey would be entitled to the privileges and immunities of citizens, including the right “to keep and carry arms wherever they went .” Id., at 417 (emphasis added). Thus, even Chief Justice Taney recognized (albeit unenthusiastically in the case of blacks) that public carry was a component of the right to keep and bear arms—a right free blacks were often denied in antebellum America.

412 from NYC Mayor Adams:

"Put simply, this Supreme Court ruling will put New Yorkers at further risk of gun violence. We have been preparing for this decision and will continue to do everything possible to work with our federal, state, and local partners to protect our city. Those efforts will include a comprehensive review of our approach to defining 'sensitive locations' where carrying a gun is banned, and reviewing our application process to ensure that only those who are fully qualified can obtain a carry license. We will work together to mitigate the risks this decision will create once it is implemented, as we cannot allow New York to become the Wild West."

445 The Court analyzes all other rights and finds that in cases where the government seeks to abridge citizen rights, it is the government which has the duty to prove that they have the right to abridge the right. It is not the citizen's duty to prove they have a special need to exercise the right, as is the case in "proper cause" license schemes.

I mean, this is so absolutely obvious the shocking part is that a single supreme court justice ruled otherwise.

The state has no right or duty to protect anyone.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at June 23, 2022 01:21 PM (llsW/)

446 Having lived in NYS (deep red, poor parts of the state), the gun laws there are just to keep the rubes unarmed and cater to the rich, famous, and politician classes. This "proper clause" is just one step. It is used to keep the regular person from defending themselves, and all the rich had to do is basically say "I'm rich and connected" and be licensed. Good to see it go (at least until Albany comes up with another unconstitutional way to get around it). The next thing that has to go is the fee that NYers have to pay just to own a hand gun. First you have to pay to be able to have the "right" to own a hand gun, then you have to pay for a stamp for each individual hand gun you purchase. Again this effectively puts gun ownership out of the reach of the "rubes", and only the well off get to have personal protection. And not to mention that if you had gotten the permit before 2013, you have to recertify (pay again) to keep the permit. "Shall Not Be Infringed" is seen as a challenge to overcome by the pols in Albany instead of a right.

493 I skimmed the dissent. Broadly, Breyer argues that there's a gun violence issue and individual locations need to be able to customize their laws for their unique problems.

He also argues that it's haaaaard for courts to analyze history and determine what are infringements and what aren't. He goes into the weeds of early laws that were all infringements and says, "See, these laws were upheld, and look how far into the weeds I had to go to find them, courts don't have the resources to go into the weeds and find these infringements and model their opinions on them."

He also does some real bullshit argumentation about how self-defense is a legit reason for carrying arms, but then he points to laws that required people prove their personal reason for self defense was more pressing than the general public, for whom self-defense isn't a legit reason for carrying arms.

Think about it. When someone applies for a conceal carry permit, you are guaranteed a background check at a minimum. Apply for other state permits and you get more background checks, fingerprints, etc. If you apply for a Utah or Florida permit, the state knows more about you than you do.

#1. Trying to hide a full sized H&K USP in Texas in the summer is a bitch.

Open carry does away with that.

Girlfriend at the time was a Big Lefty (but great in bed) and FREAKED when she found out I bought a gun (even though she knew I owned others). So supposedly the .45 was the 'Reason' she broke up with me.

Really it was because she saw me become Righteously Angry about what had happened, and her 'worldview' was such that even Righteous Anger was a no no.

That's my point though.

You shouldn't HAVE to carry like this.

I personally think doing open carry when you have the alternative for concealed carry is "bad" for gun rights in certain situations and areas, but I don't want it outlawed or anything like that.

Most businesses (like 99.9%) have a "no gun" sign here in AZ (which can be ignored if you CC) but not if you open carry.

Open carry was the de facto standard, and concealed was considered furtive and unsavory. Then, at a point in history, it was decided that concealed could be "allowed," obviating the "need" to open carry.

I get the queasiness with it, but that is no way to conduct a society in which armed self-defense is a right.

"Put simply, this Supreme Court ruling will put New Yorkers at further risk of gun violence. We have been preparing for this decision and will continue to do everything possible to work with our federal, state, and local partners to protect our city. Those efforts will include a comprehensive review of our approach to defining 'sensitive locations' where carrying a gun is banned, and reviewing our application process to ensure that only those who are fully qualified can obtain a carry license. We will work together to mitigate the risks this decision will create once it is implemented, as we cannot allow New York to become the Wild West."

722 It's fitting that Justice Thomas wrote the opinion. He's been dumping on the Court for quite awhile about their cowardice to take up 2A cases, and how the Court has been treating the 2nd Amendment as a bastard child.

723 Whatever the Democrat Party's constituents want, they'll get. Are you a hulking, bearded male who wants to force everyone around you to pretend you're a pretty, pretty lady? Democrats will FIGHT for your cause, so long as you vote for them!

Now compare this to the Republican Party's reaction when conservatives ask them to defend the Bill of Rights...

724 I was at an attorneys' conference when Masterpiece Cake had oral arguments before SCOTUS. During cocktail hour we discussed it. I had read the oral argument transcript and thought there were some interesting freedom of speech, compelled speech, and intellectual property issues. An attorney from MN kept insisting that SCOTUS had to find against the Christian cake baker because it was the right thing to do (best I could make out). I tried several times to get him to counter the First Amendment, compelled speech, and intellectual property arguments, but he had no response. I finally asked, "other than wanting a certain outcome, do you have any reason for the judgment?" This is called legal positivism - all that matters is the proper outcome, and that's what the left is ranting about/wanting from this NY Pistol judgment. It was the WRONG decision - never mind the law.

726 should have been 9-0, but three of them have the overriding mental command "GUNS ARE BAD" echoing thru their brains at all times.

727 So now that the Supreme Court has issued a ruling that people don’t need to ask permission to own weapons, Cornyn and RepubliCo(tm) have joined the Democrats in making a federal law that gun owners will have to petition the court that issued a red flag seizure to please let us have our weapons back.

“That anonymous caller, whoever they were, had it all wrong, whatever they said. I’m no hazard to the community!”

728 Do people like Keith Olbermann actually believe that no one could rationally hold any opinion other than theirs?

It appears so. Otherwise people like Olbermann might try to engage with their opponents rather than throwing tantrums, which do nothing.

If I were in any way inclined to give Olbermann the benefit of a doubt, which his behavior has made impossible, his latest outburst would decide me not to.
