NY Judge Rules Key Points of New Gun Laws As Unconstitutional

A federal judge in Syracuse has struck down several parts of New York’s broad new gun law.

On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Glenn Suddaby ruled that several provisions of the state’s new gun law are unconstitutional and cannot be enforced. He delayed the implementation of his decision for three business days, to allow the state to seek an appeals court’s ruling.

U.S. District Judge Glenn Suddaby focused on multiple parts of the law, saying licensing requirements — like a rule requiring applicants to turn over information about their social media accounts — went too far.

“Simply stated, instead of moving toward becoming a shall-issue jurisdiction, New York State has further entrenched itself as a shall-not-issue jurisdiction. And, by doing so, it has further reduced a first-class constitutional right to bear arms in public for self defense … into a mere request,” wrote Suddaby, who sits in Syracuse.

The ruling would keep restrictions in place that bar firearms from being carried into schools, government buildings and places of worship, but the judge said the state couldn’t ban guns from other sensitive locations, such as Times Square.

  1. In America, unlike any other nation on the planet , you are born with the right to possess a firearm Being there are over 30 million registered hunters in this country ( out numbers all branches of our military over 10 to 1 ) no enemy would ever consider invading our land . Biden always Brags about f-15s and drones , but if an invading army ever made it inside one of our major cities , our major weapons would be useless , and it would be house to house fighting . We wouldn’t bomb our own people . Remember the lessons of the Second World War . An armed population is the best way to secure peace against would be invaders .
