Effect of A-7752/S-6151 on carry licenses

Now that the legislature has passed A-7752/S-6151 a likely (unintended?) consequence of this will be that in certain municipalities carry licenses will be harder to obtain.  The reason being now that premises licenses can be used for transport and range use there is less “proper cause” for a carry license.

Legislature tries blocking SCOTUS lawsuit

A-7752, Relates to the transport of pistols or revolvers by licensees, has been substituted for S-6151 and just passed the Senate. A-7752 passed the Assembly yesterday. The bill now heads to the Governor.

The purpose of this legislation was to derail the NRA-backed transport lawsuit against NYC by changing state law to address the issues in the case. I do not know if SCOTUS will toss out the lawsuit after Cuomo signs the bill into law.

SCOTUS declines to hear silencer case

The Supreme Court declined without comment to hear a case regarding regulation of silencers.

I don’t think we can read anything into their decision at this time.  They turn down the overwhelming majority of appeals and already have one 2A case on their docket for next term.  As much as gun rights activists would like it the court only has a limited amount of time to hear cases and there are other issues before them besides 2A.

Legislature responds to lawsuit

Legislators know they are likely to lose the NYC transport lawsuit so they have prepared a response in the form of A-7752/S-6151.

From the Justification:

“Premise licenses for firearms in New York State allow a license holder to possess a firearm in a specific location, either their home or place of work, the address of which is specified on the license. Recognizing that premise license holders may have a legitimate reason to transport their firearms to another location, either another premise where they have a license to possess a firearm, a shooting range, or a shooting competition, this bill seeks to clarify the ability of premise license holders to transport their firearms to and from locations where they may legally possess such firearm. In order to ensure that any transportation of firearms that occurs is done safely and responsibly, this bill requires that, during transport, such firearms must be kept in a locked container separate from the ammunition.”

Bill text explicitly states, “The term “locked container” shall not include the glove compartment or console of a vehicle.”

As for non-City residents thinking about transporting a gun into the municipality:

“… [licenses] issued by a licensing officer other than the police commissioner of the City of New York shall not authorize transport of a pistol or revolver into the City of New York in the absence of written authorization to do so by the police commissioner of that city.”
