Court case make effect part of SAFE Act

A court case in the 4th Circuit may have an effect down the line in New York.

One provision of the so-called SAFE Act was to raise the age to obtain a pistol license to 21. The 4th Circuit court just ruled that prohibiting 18-20 year olds from purchasing handguns is unconstitutional. New York is in the 2nd Circuit so the ruling doesn’t apply here, however, it is in conflict with an earlier ruling in the 5th Circuit leading to a possible SCOTUS challenge at some point.
