Sheriffs Defy Blue New York Over ‘Unconstitutional’ Law – They Refuse to Enforce New Restrictions on 2nd Amendment

What’s Happening:

After the Supreme Court struck down a New York gun law, the state responded with an ever-worse law. The new law makes it impossible for New Yorkers to exercise their 2A rights outside of their homes.

Even if they can get a concealed carry permit, the state designated most places as “gun free zones.” But a group of sheriffs is not taking this sitting down. And they are refusing to enforce it.

From Fox News:

A group of New York sheriffs is pushing back on new gun restrictions in the state, arguing a new law will unfairly target law-abiding citizens…

Richard Giardino, sheriff of Fulton County, explained his opposition to the new law… and said he’s using his discretion in responding to calls and complaints.

“It unfairly targets law-abiding citizens who previously could carry concealed and could go into a store in a restaurant. And then on September 1st, all of a sudden, they could be charged with a felony,” he told host Steve Doocy.

The battle over this new law is being waged in the courts. But meanwhile, New York sheriffs are stating they will not blindly follow a law they believe violates residents’ rights.

They say they will use “discretion” in following up with complaints and charges. Most Americans know that strong gun control policies have done little to curb violence. Most “gun free” zones are targets for criminals and shooters.

All because they know law-abiding citizens are defenseless.

The new law would turn most of the city into a “gun free” zone, giving criminals confidence to wreak havoc. A group of Americans has sued the state and the Supreme Court has stepped in, forcing lower courts to rule in light of their recent decisions. The state quickly passed the law after the Supreme Court overturned a previous law. The previous law made it next to impossible for someone to receive a concealed carry permit.

The new law makes permits useless, as most places are off-limits, thanks to Democrats.

The battle is far from over. Blue states will not stop restricting Americans’ gun rights until they are voted out of power.

Key Takeaways:

  • New York sheriffs are refusing to enforce a new law banning concealed carry.
  • The law turns most places in the state “gun free” zones, restricting Americans’ 2A rights.
  • The sheriffs called the law unconstitutional and will use “discretion” when responding to complaints.
