If you’ve been reading this site for any amount of time, then, you’ve likely read when I’ve said something along the line of anti-2A people, especially, anti-2A politicians, aren’t looking to give you and I a fair fight. They’ll use any underhanded, devious way that they can to steal our rights.
Maybe you thought that I was exaggerating when I wrote that. I wasn’t.
And to prove that, today’s story comes from a state with an aggressively anti-2A government who is looking for a way to just stick it to legal gun owners there after the Supreme Court’s NYSRPA v. Bruen case which effectively overturned New York’s stranglehold on issuing concealed carry permits. Former Representative Bob Barr writes,
Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling late last month that New York’s 110-year-old concealed carry law was unconstitutional, the Empire State’s Democrat-controlled legislature and left-wing accidental governor, Kathy Hochul, wasted no time reaffirming that they will go to any lengths to prevent its citizens from lawfully carrying firearms outside the home for personal protection.
The new law, signed over the weekend by Hochul, almost certainly will ultimately be thrown out by the federal courts. However, the state’s lawmakers know that such a process likely will take many months if not years to be finally decided, and that for at least that period of time, they will be free to continue denying citizens the right to protect themselves in public.
Beginning Sept. 1, when the new law is to take effect, no law-abiding New Yorker would be eligible to obtain a carry permit without first convincing the state police that he or she possesses “the essential character, temperament and judgment necessary to be entrusted with a weapon and to use it only in a manner that does not endanger oneself or others.”
This vague and undefined criteria is but one of many conditions an applicant must meet to the satisfaction of state law enforcement officials. Others include character references, family background information, and access to their social media accounts for three years prior. These and many other criteria are buttressed by a catchall requirement that allows the permitting authority to demand, “such other information required by the licensing officer that is reasonably necessary and related to the licensing application.”
Now, as you already know, anti-2A people think that legal gun owners already fail the test of having “the essential character, temperament and judgment necessary to be entrusted with a weapon” simply for wanting to own a gun.
But this bill gets even more ridiculous, placing restrictions on carrying in all kinds of places including “Into any private property unless the owner thereof has publicly posted a notice that such carry is expressly permitted.” No, I’m not kidding.
There are even more restrictions which are beyond ridiculous.
Imagine a state government being so arrogant and heavy-handed that they think that they have the right to violate your Fourth Amendment rights against illegal search by demanding all kinds of private information from you including access to your social media accounts in order to exercise your Second Amendment rights.
Give up your Fourth Amendment rights to use your Second Amendment rights? New York’s new gun control law would make both Stalin and Mao proud.
Although I wasn’t planning on going to NY, the foregoing commentary just firmed up not coming to NY. My $$ will be spent in welcoming states.
Well ALL they’re doing is wasting time because I’d bet when the supreme court starts next session they’ll hear of this now and the FIRST thing their gonna do is reaffirm it AGAIN for the a$$hole STUPID. DEMOCRAPS their just to DUMB. Plus the court CAN place the GOVERNOR IN PRISON
The Governor has conspired to continue to violate the Rights of the people, saying that the US Supreme Court does Not get the final word. I think that the Governor needs to spend some time in jail for Contempt, and violation of the Civil Rights of the people.
DemonCRATS true agenda is tyranny, globalism, communism at a global governance level! They are hard core Communists that hate our God-given Constitutional Liberties! All of the world’s dictators have stripped the citizens of those countries/nation-States of any ability to defend themselves and their loved ones by decree of the dictators! In the case of the U.S. they have been working at this goal for many decades, incrementally until “We the people” become like the proverbial frog boiling in the water! Suddenly; one day we’ll discover that we have lost all of our God-given Constitutional Liberties!! Ben Franklin said, “Those who give up “Essential Liberty” for a little temporary security don’t deserve Liberty or security!
ANOTHER SOROS BACK DA, new york is going to hell. look art the states with all the shooting, the common thread is all run by democRATS.
New York is crazy and dangerous, I will never ever go there.
More people need to know and understand what the oath says and means, defend the country against all enemies foreign and domestic! How long will it take before people start paying attention?
They have room to talk. Let’s talk about temperament. Your so called cops are committing treason and enforcing tyrannical UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws for quite some time now according to their masters orders. I don’t know about anyone else. But I won’t change now. Another words. I WILL NOT COMPLY. WAKE UP people. Our country is all but consumed by these tyrants.
