The Reload reported New York City gun restrictions were ruled unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge John P. Cronan struck down portions of a New York City law governing when licensing officials may deny permits to own rifles, shotguns, and handguns. They were unconstitutionally denying licenses to applicants they said were “not of good moral character” or when “other good cause” exists.
“This case is not about the ability of a state or municipality to impose appropriate and constitutionally valid regulations governing the issuance of firearm licenses and permits,” Judge Cronan wrote in Srour v. NYC. “The constitutional infirmities identified herein lie not in the City’s decision to impose requirements for the possession of handguns, rifles, and shotguns. Rather, the provisions fail to pass constitutional muster because of the magnitude of discretion afforded to City officials in denying an individual their constitutional right to keep and bear firearms, and because of Defendants’ failure to show that such unabridged discretion has any grounding in our Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.”
A U.S. District Court Judge has ruled that New York City’s gun controls enacted after the city lost in New York Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen are also unconstitutional, The Truth About Guns said. The city completely ignored that law.
Mayor Adams is already looking for another way to stop people from having guns. The law means nothing to gun grabbers.
New York City mayor-elect @ericadamsfornyc calls the possibility of SCOTUS overturning restrictive New York gun laws “frightening.”
If overturned, he hopes to adjust current city rules to comply but create “restrictions [so] that people can’t get the guns in first place.” pic.twitter.com/Jwr6aIThLP

Alexandra O-Cortez has a new buzzword: the iron pipeline. She doesn’t want guns anywhere in the United States as she promotes flooding our borders with anonymous people.
“There is no discussion about gun violence in New York City without discussing the iron pipeline,” says @AOC, referring to a flow of guns out of states with looser gun restrictions and into crime scenes hundreds of miles away. pic.twitter.com/acxuAVfaeu
