In the first firearms related Second Amendment case to be heard in a decade, the Supreme Court granted a writ of Certiorari (decided to hear) the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. The City of New York. This case will have major ramifications for Second Amendment jurisprudence.
New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. City of New York, New York, No. 18-280
Issue(s): Whether New York Citys ban on transporting a licensed, locked and unloaded handgun to a home or shooting range outside city limits is consistent with the Second Amendment, the commerce clause and the constitutional right to travel.
Reuters thinks it will be heard in October of 2019. From reuters.com:
The case will be heard and decided in the courts next term, which starts in October and ends in June 2020.
Heritage thinks it could be in the spring or fall. From heritage.org:

Preparing for next term when another conservative gets confirmed.
That's probably right. Although, the Court might try to squeeze it in this term.
It depends on Roberts getting the o.k. from the DNC.
I dont want this SC anywhere near the 2nd. Roberts has dropped the pretense. Hes with the Rats now.
Quit the hyperbole. Roberts is not a Liberal, but is not as Conservative as any of us want. If he was "with the Rats now," then Janus v. AFSCME (forced dues to a public-employees union violate right to free speech) would have come out in favor of the unions.
That leaves time to replace Notorious RBG.
They won’t if they can avoid it.
I don’t even understand why this case isn’t a slam dunk. It’s like a law says you can only practice your religion at home, at church, and on the way in-between.
Sorry, Roberts is enemy scum.
Watch for his twisted defense of ObamaCare when it soon comes before the court again.
Meanwhile the real problem is the street thug gang members and the afternoon shooting murder on the subway platform.
The thinking on the gun forums is that SCOTUS took this case to establish a new standard of review for 2A cases. Probably strict scrutiny.
Even the antis are coming to believe that this particular law is really, really, stupid. Look for NY to repeal it and try to moot the question before it is heard by the Supremes.
If the Supremes want to base it on gun rights too, they can. But they usually duck contentious issues to decide cases on lesser ones.
It is very interesting, that is certain.
I doubt they took this case, which only effects a very small number of people, in order to issue a limited ruling.
So don't hold your breath. It would be wonderful if you turn out to be right, but the odds are against it.
Probably right, but hope springs eternal.
I think a lot of it depends on RBG's health. One more Justice and we have a big win.
