Judge Neil Gorsuch will hear a case out of California on handguns and Texas may soon have an official state gun.

Now that Neil Gorsuch has been sworn-in as the new Supreme Court justice, the high court will be hearing two cases considered to be highly important by gun rights advocates. Both come from California and one of them, Peruta v. San Diego County, could decide whether or not the 'may issue' status of handgun permits in certain states is constitutional. If the Supreme Court decides no, many think certain states would be compelled to issue permits more abundantly.
Texas legislators could soon name the 1847 Colt Walker as the official state handgun in Texas. The lawmakers proposing this say the storied pistol served as a vital instrument in defending Texas during its revolution. The piece is also named for captain Sam Walker, consider a hero of the Mexican-American war. Other lawmakers also want to recognize the cannon as the official state large gun and the bowie knife as the official Texas knife.
