Supreme Court Delays Decision On NJ Business Owner’s Gun Request

Posted: Updated:
United States Supreme Court Justices have again delayed their decision as to whether or not they’re going to hear the case of New Jersey’s John Drake, the ATM business owner who is fighting for the right to carry a gun in public for self-protection.

For Drake, it’s been nearly three-weeks of back and forth with the U.S. Supreme Court to see if they will hear his case and he says that he’s extremely anxious to see what they come back with.

“Certainly waking up through the night, through the day anticipation from yourself as well as it’s unbelievable how much support in a good way I’m getting but it’s also unbelievable how many people call and see ‘did you hear anything yet’,” he explained.

Drake’s lawyer is currently down in Washington D.C. and he’s hopeful that the Justice’s will rule in their favor and make history by hearing this case.

“I think all lawyers are cautious enough not to really over-predict what Supreme Court Justices would say or do, but the hopes are high because we do feel by now that if they were just totally against it, the whole group, they would have booted it by now and denied it,” Drake said.

Aside from the waiting game, Drake’s ATM business has been booming ever since word spread of his possible Supreme Court case and all the media coverage that his request has gotten him.

“Especially in the north Jersey area I’ve had four different people call, so a little side benefit of course would be picking up some business,” he boasted.

Drake hopes to hear more about his case by the end of this week.
