Effective July 1, 2021, there will be 20 states that will have Constitutional or “unrestricted” Right To Carry. This means that residents (an in some cases non-residents) can carry a loaded firearm concealed on their person without a permit!
SCOTUS to Hear First 2A Case in over a Decade
On Monday April 26, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association challenge to a law that prohibits residents from carrying a firearm outside the home without a permit. New York is one of 8 remaining “may issue” states, which means they only issue permits to citizens that can show the “actual and articulable” need for one”. ” Mere speculative or specious need for self-defense.. the desire to exercise a fundamental right.. nor living or being employed in a high crime area” is not enough to obtain a permit to carry in NY.
If SCOTUS rules in favor of NY State Pistol & Rifle Association, this may have the ability force all states to become either “Shall Issue” or “Unrestricted” Constitutional Carry States. Stay Tuned!

This appears to be the first step in a new push to become more involved in the fight over 2nd Amendment Rights. With the NRA wrapped up in turmoil and bankruptcy, this couldn’t have come at a better time.
