On September 21, Kaplan Hecker & Fink attorneys filed an amicus brief at the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence in support of the State of New York’s concealed-carry law in the case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc., v. Bruen (No. 20-843). This case involves a Second Amendment challenge to New York’s licensing scheme, which requires individuals seeking an unrestricted license for concealed carry of a gun outside the home to show “proper cause.” KHF’s brief on behalf of Giffords Law Center argues that New York’s law finds support in the history and tradition of self-defense as well as the broader structure of the Constitution.
