NRA Statement on New York City’s Desperate Attempt to Avoid Supreme Court Review

 

Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, issued the following statement in regards to today’s attempt by the City of New York to dismiss the NRA-supported Supreme Court case N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Association, et al. v. City of N.Y., et al.:

“The City of New York clearly knows that its current restrictions on the carrying and transportation of lawfully owned firearms are unconstitutional and will fail under any standard of constitutional review, as the NRA has been saying for years. Today, it asked the U.S. Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and allow the City to slow walk a narrow expansion of its current policy through a lengthy bureaucratic process — the result of which, even if adopted, would still unduly infringe upon the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment. That is not how things work in the Supreme Court; the Court does not put its review on hold while the government embarks on a journey that at best might fix only a limited part of the constitutional defect. This is nothing more than a naked attempt by New York City to resist Supreme Court review of policies that even New York must recognize as inconsistent with the holdings in District of Columbia v.

SCOTUS Transgender Ban & Reversing NYC Anti-Gun Laws #WINNING 01/22/10

SCOTUS bans the transgendered fifth column from the military. SCOTUS also is set to overturn one of New York City’s most egregious anti-gun laws on the books in October.

Beach vs. Kelly Will Be Overturned by US Supreme Court This Fall (Transporting Handguns Outside NYC)

For over a decade New York City residents have not been able to take their handguns into Yonkers, what to speak of New Jersey or Long Island to go shooting or compete in competitions.

The Democrat Party Sausage making judges rubber stamp any outrage the City Council or the Mayor demand with regards to stripping New Yorker’s  of their second amendment rights.

One activist democrat judge after the other insist gun ownership is a privilege to be doled out by the libs as they see fit – that the US Constitution has no purview in this state.

Year after year the Supreme Court of the United States refuses to hear our pleas for relief through the judicial process.

Useless Justice Kennedy is no more. Today we have Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. Today the US Supreme Court has stated it will hear the case that will get rid of Beach vs. Kelly forever and return to New Yorker’s their constitutional right to travel anywhere they wish with their property.

This case might also open the door to the eradication of many of the most vile anti-gun laws in New York as well as other lib controlled states.

Today is a day of great celebration. One of the foundational planks of the anti-gun scheme ruling New York City is about to die this October.
