Bruen Gun Case Already Impacting other Gun Cases that had been appealed to the Supreme Court

Jul 3, 2022 | gun control, Gun Control Laws

The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to vacate lower court rulings in several gun rights cases and remand them back to lower courts for review “in light of” last week’s landmark 6-3 decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen. Among these cases are Bianchi, Dominic, et al. v. Frosh, which challenges Maryland’s 2013 ban on “assault weapons;” Duncan v. Bonta, which challenges California’s “high capacity” mag ban; and  Young v. Hawaii, which deals with carrying restrictions in Hawaii. The Court’s statement in each case was very brief: Petition GRANTED. Judgment VACATED and case REMANDED for further consideration in light of New York State Rifle & Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen, 597 U. S. ___ (2022).
