Firearm Ban After Assault Left Intact by U.S. High Court

The U.S. Supreme Court declined to take up a new gun-rights case, turning away an appeal from a man barred from owning a firearm because of a misdemeanor assault conviction 45 years ago.

The appeal by Jefferson Wayne Schrader contended that the ban violated the Constitution’s Second Amendment, which protects the right to bear arms.
