(Worthy News) – The U.S. struck down a law requiring people to show a need for carrying a gun to get a license to have one in public. The justices said the requirement violates the Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.”

It was expected that the justices’ 6-3 decision could ultimately allow more people to legally carry guns publicly in the nation’s largest cities such as New York, , and Boston.

About a quarter of the U.S. population lives in states due to being affected by the ruling, the high court’s first significant gun decision in more than a decade.

The U.S. states of California, , , Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Rhode Island have similar laws as New York.

Thursday’s order came as the U.S. worked on gun legislation following recent mass shootings in , New York, and California.

U.S. President ’s administration had urged the justices to uphold New York’s law.

However, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the Court’s majority that the Constitution protects “an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.”

The liberal justices Elena Kagan, Sonia Sotomayor, and Stephen Breyer dissented, Worthy News monitored.
