Copying from SCOTUSblog.com

The court holds that New York's "proper-cause" requirement to obtain a concealed-carry license violates the Constitution by preventing law-abiding citizens with ordinary self-defense needs from exercising their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense.

Thomas says in the intro that the court is holding "that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual's right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.

The New York "proper cause" requirement violates the Constitution, Thomas explains, because it only allows public-carry licenses when an applicant shows a special need for self-defense.

This is a solid decision for the 2nd Amendment. The concurring decisions that largely address the dissent are also worth reading. The dissent is mostly an emotional appeal and does not address the constitutional issue except as secondary.

What the liberals want to do is turn the 2nd Amendment right into a privilege..like a driver license. So they can pick and choose who and when can get them. Communists do that all the time - only for a select few...and the rest are not.

Unlucky for conservatives to want everyone to enjoy this right...even for liberals -who adamantly want you disarmed.

Perhaps the justices realize that the country has become more dangerous than at any prior period in its history.
It was far more dangerous in this country during the Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and the American Civil War. But America certainly is not safe especially with numerous illegal aliens many of whom that are violent criminals pouring over the unsecure border.

Here in New Jersey, the application for a carry permit is pretty simple...

1. Background check on a fresh set of electronic fingerprints.
2. Recent handgun qualification on an LE course of fire.
3. Three references acknowledging your character.
4. Letter of need as to why you need to carry a handgun.
5. Notarized application submitted in triplicate.

Once your local police chief completes the investigation and signs his approval, it goes to a Superior Court Judge for his approval and signature. Any restrictions are added at that time. The permit is good for 2 years.

Piece of cake.

I understand in Thomas's writings In the opinion it states the Second Amendment is a restriction on the government not on the people.
In the minds of liberals and Democrats is the other way around - a restriction on the citizen.

Thank God for Justice Thomas - he has got to be the most hated black man in the eyes of liberals and many blacks. I am sure Scalia is in comfort knowing Thomas is there.
