In contrast, he said the New Jersey ruling did not recognize that right, setting up a conflict among rulings made in different circuits.

In the wake of Tuesday’s decision, Mr. Hudak said other courts could begin to “punt” on cases similar to the one in Maryland, citing the Supreme Court’s decision to simply let the Maryland law stand. But, he said, the lack of a ruling by the high court could continue a steady stream of lawsuits on different aspects of gun control, as advocates continue to test the boundaries of the right to keep and bear arms.
