Bruen. That case set new standards for interpreting the Second Amendment.

Federal prosecutors, on the other hand, had argued that the portion of the law focused on drug users is "consistent with a longstanding historical tradition in America of disarming presumptively risky persons, namely, felons, the mentally ill, and the intoxicated."
