Supreme Court expands gun rights beyond your home

On June 23, the US Supreme Court published its opinion in the case of NY State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v Bruen.   

The decision was a 6-to-3 decision, consisting of 63 pages, with nearly all of the justices writing separate opinions on the issues presented.
