This year, the Supreme Court overturned a New York law and made getting a concealed carry permit next to impossible. But the liberal state quickly made things even worse, by passing a new law. The new measure declared most of the state a “gun free” zone, ensuring that anyone concealed carrying cannot bring their firearm nearly anywhere.
Several lawsuits have already been brought before courts. The Supreme Court has already weighed in, ordering lower courts to judge on this law–in light of its own ruling. And now, one federal court just shot down part of this gun control measure’s restrictions.
A federal court judge in Buffalo, N.Y., has granted a temporary restraining order in a case filed by the Second Amendment Foundation that challenges New York State’s new concealed carry law, declaring the state’s “place of worship” restriction is unconstitutional…
The order is effective immediately and prohibits New York’s enforcement of this provision.
A federal court struck down a part of New York’s new gun control law affecting places of worship. The state banned residents from concealed carrying a firearm at a church or similar locations.
That might sound good on the surface, right? No guns at church mean nobody will get hurt!
That logic only works if you’re a kindergartener. Gun-free zones have been shown to be magnets for criminals and would-be mass shooters.
They know that their victims will be unarmed and defenseless. That is why there are so many shootings at places Americans are not allowed to bring guns to.
In recent years, we’ve seen a horrible line of shootings taking place at churches and synagogues. The only real solution is for places of worship to provide protection from would-be killers.
But not every church has the budget for armed security. The obvious alternative, of course, is for some attendees to be armed and prepared, should the worst happen.
This part of New York’s strict new law is effectively putting worshippers in harm’s way.
The court’s decision is part of a larger attempt by Americans to knock down this new law. It is likely other parts of the law will also be struck down in due time.
- A federal court struck down a New York law that bans firearms at churches.
- The new law attempts to make most public places in NY “gun free.”
- This comes as the Supreme Court overturned a previous anti-Second Amendment law.
