This article attempts to make good news sound bad. Well, it is all about perspective I guess. If you are a pro-gun 2nd Amendment advocate, this case is potentially great news. With all of the other anti-2A legislation in the works around the country, keep watching what happens in this case. Read the article below. It’s interesting how the left is afraid of ‘expanding’ the Second Amendment, which only restricts government from ‘INFRINGING’ on our Right to KEEP and BEAR arms.
New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York, the biggest guns case to reach the Supreme Court in more than a decade, began with a tiny dispute.
New York City offers two kinds of licenses to gun owners. A “carry” license permits them to carry a handgun for “target practice, hunting, or self-defense.” The less permissive “premises” license, meanwhile, permits gun owners to “have and possess in his dwelling” a handgun. Under a now-repealed rule, premise license holders were only allowed to bring the gun out of their home for limited purposes, including to practice shooting at seven specific gun ranges.
The plaintiffs in New York State Rifle brought a narrow challenge to this framework. As a federal appeals court explained in an opinion upholding the city’s repealed rule, some of the plaintiffs “seek to transport their handguns to shooting ranges and competitions outside New York City.” One plaintiff also owns two homes, and he wants to be able to transport the same gun between these two homes.
