United States v. Rahimi

For decades, a federal law has barred people subject to domestic violence restraining orders from owning firearms. But here, that may change if the Supreme Court upholds a lower court decision striking down that restriction — despite the acute risk such a ruling would pose to the lives and safety of survivors of intimate partner violence. This case comes just two years after the court’s disastrous ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, where it struck down a 100-year-old gun safety law and opened up the floodgates to increased gun violence.
