The Supreme Court agreed to New York’s gun licensing requirements that could expand protections for carrying concealed weapons in public.
It became more than a decade since the justices have ruled on a case concerning the right to bear arms.
It comes in the wake of several mass shootings and the Biden administration’s push for enhanced gun regulations.
The case accepted will put the spotlight on the three justices on Monday appointed by former President Donald Trump, all of whom received vigorous backing from gun organizations such as the National Rifle Association.
The court will hear the challenge to a century-old New York gun control law in the term that begins in October.
