There’s a new round in the gun debate that’s already been raging for months.
The court is set to hear the Second Amendment and its protections against state and local government infringement.
The justices are scheduled to hear arguments in October in the case of a California man, Matthew C. Kizer, who is suing the state over the state’s law that requires gun owners to report any firearm used to commit a crime.
If the justices agree with the lower court that Kizer’s Second Amendment rights are violated, the state will have to reinstate his gun ownership.
If they don’t, he could be locked up for violating the state gun law.
The court’s new ruling will be a big win for Kizer.
He is the latest in a string of cases to emerge from the lower courts over the past few years.
As the legal fight over gun ownership in America heats up, Kizer is just one of many high-profile cases that show how the courts can play a critical role in the fight against gun violence.
The decision in Kizer v.
California came after a federal judge ruled that California’s gun laws violate Kizer and that he could not legally possess a gun because he’s a felon.
In his ruling, Judge David Tatel concluded that the state has the power to enforce the state law because it is “the sole source of authority for the law’s provisions.”
Kizer says the gun laws violated his constitutional rights because they infringed on his right to bear arms.
Kiser sued the state of California, saying the law is unconstitutional because it requires gun-owners to report the use of their weapons to law enforcement authorities.
The California Supreme Court disagreed with the federal judge, ruling that the federal law is constitutional because it doesn’t impose any restrictions on gun ownership that could cause harm to the public.
The state appealed the decision to the Supreme Judicial Court.
The appeals court heard oral arguments in February, and last week the justices declined to take up the case.
The high court’s action is expected to come down this month.
The ruling means that Kizers case is now on hold.
The state will likely appeal to the United States Supreme Court.
Kizers lawyer, Richard Pfeifer, told the Associated Press last week that the case is still on appeal and that Kiser “will likely have to go through the courts again.”
The Supreme Court declined to comment on the case in an email to the AP, but Pfeif has previously said that Kisers lawsuit is “a great example of the court’s willingness to engage in high-stakes constitutional litigation that is of great public interest.”
This is not the first time that the justices have weighed in on guns.
In 2009, they heard a case that concerned gun control in California.
In that case, the court ruled that states could not pass gun control laws that infringed upon the right to keep and bear arms, or that required gun owners who used a gun to commit another crime to register the weapon.
The Supreme Court ruled in favor of California’s law.
In recent years, the justices’ stance on gun control has shifted.
In 2016, they ruled against the Obama administration in a case called District of Columbia v.
Heller, which upheld the right of gun owners and those with a mental illness to keep guns for self-defense.
