From Yahoo News:
The court’s six conservative justices sided against the New York law, which allowed local licensing officials to refuse applications for a carry permit if the applicant couldn’t show they had a special need for self-protection.
The court rejected this, and said New York’s licensing regime violates the Constitution.
“We know of no other constitutional right that an individual may exercise only after demonstrating to government officers some special need,” wrote Justice Clarence Thomas, who authored the majority opinion. “That is not how the First Amendment works when it comes to unpopular speech or the free exercise of religion. It is not how the Sixth Amendment works when it comes to a defendant’s right to confront the witnesses against him. And it is not how the Second Amendment works when it comes to public carry for self defense.”
