The Massachusetts gun control statute is overturned by the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court instructed a lower court to examine the matter and ordered a lower court decision on a Massachusetts gun control law to be vacated.

A contentious Massachusetts legislation that places tight limits on the possession and purchase of handguns, including the requirement for a license in order to buy or possess a firearm, is at the center of the case in question, Morin v. Lyver. Anyone convicted of a nonviolent misdemeanor involving the possession or use of firearms is also prohibited from obtaining handguns for the rest of their lives under the law.

The law was initially deemed constitutional by the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts, but the Supreme Court on Monday ordered that decision to be overturned and the case “remanded to the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit for further consideration in light of New York State Rifle andamp; Pistol Assn., Inc. v. Bruen.”

A 6-3 decision earlier this year invalidated a New York law that demanded “proper cause” justification before granting a concealed weapon permit.

Justice Clarence Thomas stated for the majority at the time, “The constitutional right to keep and carry guns in public for self-defense is not a second-class right, subject to an entirely separate body of restrictions than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.” There are no other constitutional rights that a person can exercise only after proving to government officials that they have a specific need, as far as we are aware.


The court regarded the decision as a turning point in the case, potentially paving the way for fresh challenges to local and state gun laws.
