SCOTUS declares NY's "proper cause" handgun licensing law unConstitutional

This is a first report. I haven't yet read the whole decision but here's a quick overview. It seems that all of the "red flag" laws will also fall, under the same ruling.

"The constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not “a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” McDonald, 561 U. S., at 780 (plurality opinion). The exercise of other constitutional rights does not require individuals to demonstrate to government officers some special need. The Second Amendment right to carry arms in public for self defense is no different."
