The U.S. Supreme Court today set the table for its first decision in a Second Amendment case in nearly a decade today when it issued an order in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York City for the parties to prepare for oral arguments on December 2. New York City had asked the Court to declare the case moot because the city has changed the law being challenged and now claims all of the issues raised in the lawsuit have been settled. Former Solicitor General Paul Clement, who represents the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, begs to differ and says there are still relevant issues left unaddressed by the city’s changes. What’s more, says Clement, is that the city could change their law again once the Court dismisses the case.
