Trenton, NJ –-(Ammoland.com)- Over the past two weeks, the U.S. Supreme Court was twice scheduled to decide whether to hear an appeal in the ANJRPC / SAF challenge to New Jersey’s carry laws (Drake v. Jerejian).
Both times, the high court has not made a decision either way and has instead rescheduled the conference at which the decision is to be made.
May 2 2014 is the next scheduled conference date, although that does not necessarily mean there will be a decision following that date.
While there is much speculation about the significance of the action so far, all that can be said with certainty is that the high court has had two opportunities to decline the case so far, yet has not; and that the court has also had two opportunities to accept the case so far, yet has not.
The case is still under consideration, and nothing more can be concluded at this time.
This type of activity, while not the norm, is not unprecedented. The Supreme Court will act when it is ready, and we may have to wait weeks or longer until it does.
ANJRPC is monitoring the case closely and will issue alerts as new developments occur.
