Instead of ruling on gun owners’ rights, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday found a controversial New York City case moot because local officials recently rescinded the law. New York City had prohibited licensed gun owners from taking their firearms outside the city limits to places such as shooting ranges and second homes. Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Clarence Thomas dissented, arguing the law blatantly violated the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
