SCOTUS Strikes Down Restrictive Concealed Carry Law

3
147

The Supreme Court Thursday ruled that New York’s regulations that made it difficult to obtain a license to carry a concealed handgun were unconstitutionally restrictive, and that it should be easier to obtain such a license.

The existing standard required an applicant to show “proper cause” for seeking a license, and allowed New York officials to exercise discretion in determining whether a person has shown a good enough reason for needing to carry a firearm. Stating that one wished to protect themselves or their property was not enough.

The case, New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen, was the first major gun rights case before the Supreme Court in more than a decade.

What will matter in the end is whether the state can get away with imposing huge permitting fees, unending delays, and permit denials without giving any reason whatsoever. Not many people can afford the kind of court fight involved in suing a government agency.

Biden and the Gov. of New York both ripped into the SCOTUS decision, and of course the MSM are crying about it too !!!!
