Supreme Court won't rule on carrying guns in public - The Supreme Court appears hesitant to wade back into the national debate on guns. The court refused Monday to decide whether the right to bear arms extends outside the home.

The case would have marked the most significant gun control case at the high court since its District of Columbia v. Heller decision in 2008 upheld the right to keep handguns at home for self-defense.
