This decision was made by six of the nine judges, all conservative, of the highest American court, which validated a law of the State of New York on the carrying of weapons. The Supreme Court of the United States invalidated this Thursday, June 22, a law of the State of New York on the carrying of weapons, devoting in passing the right of Americans to leave their homes armed.

Victory for the lobby The Court is acting “without considering the potentially fatal consequences of its decision”, regretted its progressive colleague Stephen Breyer in a separate argument, recalling that “in 2020, 45,222 Americans were killed by firearms”. The decision represents a sharp snub for supporters of a better framework for firearms, whose efforts it will complicate. The powerful US arms lobby, the NRA, hailed a “victory”. “The NRA wins a victory!” exclaimed the National Rifle Association on Twitter, pointing out that the high court had declared “unconstitutional” the “restrictions” on the carrying of weapons provided for by a law of the State of New York. . Concretely, it relates to a law which, since 1913, has limited the issuance of permits to carry concealed weapons to people who have reason to believe that they may have to defend themselves, for example because of their profession or threats against them. It had been challenged in court by two gun owners, who had been denied permits, and an affiliate of the NRA.

Ratified in 1791, it states that “A well-organized militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms will not be infringed”. In 1939, the Supreme Court ruled that it protected the right to use arms as part of a law enforcement force, such as the military or police, but was not an individual right to self-defense.

It has, however, left it to cities and states to regulate out-of-home transportation, so the rules vary widely from place to place. Thursday’s judgment puts an end to this latitude by setting in stone the right to carry a weapon. As a first step, it should bring down laws similar to that of New York in force in other states, including some very populated like California or New Jersey. Other restrictions in force mainly in Democratic states could be challenged in court under this new legal framework.
