Court decision rules against gun control law in New York

A new court ruling struck down a New York gun control law that barred the licensed carry of a concealed weapon on private property.

United States District Court Judge John L. Sinatra Jr. made the ruling this week in the third court case in favor of New York Second Amendment rights in the past two months.

The cases

“The three decisions have each struck at a different aspect of a larger body of gun controls signed by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) in reaction to the Supreme Court of the United States’ June 23, 2022, decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen,” Breitbart News reported.

“That decision struck down New York’s proper cause requirement for concealed carry permit issuance,” it added.

Another case

“U.S. District Court Judge John L. Sinatra Jr.’s temporary restraining order stops the new concealed carry restrictions that took effect Sept. 1 inside churches and other places of worship, while the judge considers the larger question of whether the ban violates the Second Amendment,” Buffalo News reported in October.

“Ample Supreme Court precedent addressing the individual’s right to keep and bear arms – from Heller and McDonald to its June decision in Bruen – dictates that New York’s new place of worship restriction is equally unconstitutional,” Sinatra wrote in his order.

The cases are falling in favor of the Second Amendment, contrasting the state’s overreaching gun control laws.

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul’s (D) plan to limit weapons in the state is currently running into multiple legal problems.

Thankfully, courts continue to rule in favor of the Constitution instead of partisan politicians on the issue.
