If this comes out proper (as I believe) it will basically grant whats considered Constitutional Carry, more accurately no permit required. But felony conviction and some other limits make carry unlawful. I suspect it will be more of a shall issue based on limited requirements aka, training class and background check.
No way. This is a pipe dream. The Supreme Court only granted review on the following question:
"Whether the State's denial of petitioners' applications for concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment."
The Court will not touch the issue as to whether permits themselves are in infringement, but only the question of whether the states policy of requiring extraordinary circumstances and only issuing such permits to people who can show "good cause" passes constitutional muster.
I predict the court will strike down New York State's laws (or at least the current judicial interpretation of those statutes). The Court will demand that New York issue carry permits to all qualified individuals, and one "qualification" cannot be that you must face an extraordinarily and remarkably high risk of being victimized.
The Right enshrined in the second amendment is for the masses, not a select few.
