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.”

  1. By any constitutional standard, strict scrutiny or whatever, NYC reg and indeed state regs under SAFE act are unconstitutional.
    For those never trumpers the sword of spite about to fall. Time for honesty and recognition we have a 2d A.
    Why N.Y. wants is confiscation via taxation. They will tax every gun and every bullet to force economic forfeiture of 2A.
    SCOTUS should not only overturn but justice dept should start inquire on deprivation of civil rights under color of law. They talk about reparations: how about a new handgun for every pistol permit owner and those who were denied. Reparations. Let’s talk about reparations.
