THE EDGE

Earlier this year, the Supreme Court refused to hear two major Second Amendment cases. If the Court does hear one this term, it may well be Silvester v. Becerra, which challenges whether California may force people to wait 10 days before buying guns even if they pass background checks sooner. The justices will decide whether to hear the case this month.
