The Supreme Court released its ruling on Thursday against New York’s law that includes strict rules for concealed carry in the state. Prior to this ruling, the state could decide who it wanted to have this right and who it didn’t. The Gateway Pundit reported on this case moments ago:
New York requires its residents to obtain a license for lawful possession of a firearm, regardless of whether they plan to keep it at home or take it outside. To obtain a license, a licensing officer must determine whether the applicant is of good moral character, lacks a history of crime or mental illness, and that “no good cause exists for the denial of the license.”
Applicants must also have “proper cause” to lawfully conceal carry a handgun—openly carrying a handgun is entirely banned. New York law leaves “proper cause” undefined, but courts have clarified that this standard means one must “demonstrate a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community or of persons engaged in the same profession.”
Merely having the “generalized desire” to conceal carry, according to the courts, “does not constitute ‘proper cause.’”
The Supreme Court disagrees with New York law and just ruled on this case this morning.
Today, the Supreme Court decided its Second Amendment case, striking down New York’s strict concealed carry law & establishing the right of law-abiding Americans to carry a loaded gun in public w/out any showing of special need.
Tyrannical and lawless New York City Mayor Eric Adams made an announcement following the release of the ruling.
