Acting AG Bruck: New Jersey Files Amicus Brief with U.S. Supreme Court Defending Common-Sense Limits on “Concealed Carry” of Firearms
Second Amendment Challenge to New York’s “Concealed Carry” Licensure Law May Have Implications for NJ
TRENTON – Acting Attorney General Andrew J. Bruck announced today that New Jersey has joined a multi-state coalition in filing an amicus brief in a case before the U.S. Supreme Court that defends the constitutionality of state laws that require those who seek to carry a concealed firearm in public to show a particularized need to do so.
At issue in the case—New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, No. 20-843 (U.S.)—is a New York law that requires applicants for a concealed carry permit to show an actual and articulable — as opposed to merely speculative or specious—need for self-defense.
