Description

Aughie and Nia discuss this Second Amendment case, originally opposing the travel ban on guns outside of going to firing ranges, as set by New York City. The case is eventually declared moot (as the city rescinded the law), but there is a lingering question of the lower court's application of SCOTUS Second Amendment precedent.
