Major New Gun Ruling

by Robert VerBruggen

Seventh Circuit judge Richard Posner, who was no fan of the Supreme Court’s recent gun rulings, nonetheless has held that these decisions imply a right to carry a loaded gun in public.

As the Supreme Court has noted, bans on concealed carry have a long history in the U.S. — but bans on all carrying are a subject of debate. It will be interesting to see where this case goes — and how far the Supreme Court is willing to go in micromanaging state and local gun laws.
