After postponing debate on the important Second Amendment case for two consecutive weeks, the Supreme Court declined to hear Drake v. Jerejian in orders released this morning.
The proposed case would have challenged strict ‘may-issue’ practices. At the center of it was John Drake, a New Jersey ATM business owner, who was denied a concealed carry permit because he could not satisfy the state’s definition of “good cause.”
The Second Amendment Foundation, the National Rifle Association, 19 states and 34 congressional representatives supported the lawsuit.
The Supreme Court did not comment on reasons why it denied the case and is not required to. The orders released today, from Friday’s conference, denied certiorari for more than 100 cases including Drake, while granting to hear two.
