Some states, among them NY, NJ and California, ban open carrying outside the home in all urban areas, i.e., the only exception is hunting. All three states severely restrict the ability/right of citizens to bear arms openly or concealed in urban areas--meaning that most most citizens simply cannot qualify for a CCW because of the requirement of "justifiable need." This is what Corlett will theoretically address.

The Question for Cert:

"Whether the State's denial of petitioners' applications for
concealed-carry licenses for self-defense violated the Second Amendment."

The parties submitting briefs did not directly answer the question.

Will SCOTUS address it if the parties that failed to answer the question in their briefs continue to do so in the hearing?

Justice Thomas: " I find it extremely improbable that the Framers understood the Second Amendment to protect little more than carrying a gun from the bedroom to the kitchen. "
