N.Y. Libs Scramble As SCOTUS Takes On A Gun Rights Case.
New York has some pretty restrictive Gun Control legislation in place. But when they heard that the Supreme Court of The United States was going to be looking into the constitutionality of some of their ordinances, they suddenly started changing their tune. But despite their attempts to appease the plaintiff the case is still going to be heard this coming June.
“The lawsuit in New York began as a challenge to the city’s prohibition on carrying a licensed, locked and unloaded handgun outside the city limits, either to a shooting range or a second home.”
The lower courts upheld the second amendment infringing ordinances but the case, fortunately, drew the attention of SCOTUS, which caused libs to jump into action.
“Gun control advocates at both the city and state levels scrambled to find a way to remove the case from the justices’ grasp. Not only did the city change its regulation to allow licensed gun owners to transport their weapons to locations outside New York’s five boroughs, but the state enacted a law barring cities from imposing the challenged restrictions.”
The Gun Control Advocates claimed that the ordinances had been appealed and that there was no need to go before the SCOTUS. But Paul Clement felt this was too little too late.
“Paul Clement, who represents three New York residents and New York’s NRA affiliate challenging the transportation ban, said New York City “still views firearm ownership as a privilege and not a fundamental right, and is still in the business of limiting transport and denying licenses for a host of discretionary reasons.”
The liberal New Yorkers are probably concerned as the SCOTUS has more of a conservative lean now since Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch are now on the bench. It’s about time New York stopped infringing upon the rights of Americans. Hopefully, this case forces them to be more considerate of the rights of New Yorkers.
