CASE ENTRY

Gould v. Morgan

In Boston, people who want to carry a firearm for self-defense have to prove they have a “good reason” for doing so “beyond a generalized desire to be safe.” A Second Amendment violation? First Circuit: The right to armed self-defense is focused on protection of hearth and home. The right to carry outside the home gets only intermediate scrutiny, which this law satisfies.
