Editor's Note :
In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year.

National Rifle Association of America v. McCraw
Petition for certiorari denied on February 24, 2014
Issue: (1) Whether the Second Amendment right to
bear arms for self-defense in case of confrontation
includes the right to bear arms in public; (2) Whether that right to bear arms extends to
responsible, law-abiding eighteen- to twenty-year-old adults; and (3) whether Texas’s ban on responsible, lawabiding
eighteen- to twenty-year-old adults bearing handguns in
public for self-defense violates the Second Amendment
and the Equal Protection Clause.
