For the Democrats, nothing makes them more angry than gun ownership.
That’s because responsible gun ownership is the last bastion of Americans’ freedoms.
And Kathy Hochul was furious after this court just smacked down her top anti-gun priority.
New York state is where Constitutional rights go to die
Of all of the states that have passed out-of-control restrictive gun laws, few are as draconian as New York state.
Over the years, Kathy Hochul and the Democrats who are running New York into the ground have made gun control their top priority.
One of New York’s most ridiculous anti-Second Amendment laws is the so-called Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA), which was passed just days after the Supreme Court of the United States shot down New York’s proper cause requirement, which required applicants for a concealed carry permit to give a reason for their application.
The CCIA was designed to make it harder than ever to get a concealed carry permit, which is a direct contradiction to the Second Amendment.
Fortunately, there are many in New York who agree, and six such citizens took their case to court.
As a result, Judge Glenn Suddaby of the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York placed a preliminary injunction the following provisions, which are considered to be the most extreme parts of the law:
(a) The provision requiring “good moral character”;
(b) The provision requiring the “names and contact information for the applicant’s current spouse, or domestic partner, any other adults residing in the applicant’s home, including any adult children of the applicant, and whether or not there are minors residing, full time or part time, in the applicant’s home”;
(c) The provision requiring “a list of former and current social media accounts of the applicant from the past three years.”
As you can see, these provisions are absolutely insane.
There is very little definition of what the state should deem as “good moral character” and the authority to search social media posts is also very concerning.
The Left will stop at nothing to disarm the American public
Thankfully these parts of the bill are on hold, for now, but it just goes to show how dangerous the radical Left is when it comes to guns.
Make no mistake, Democrats want these same laws to be implemented for the rest of America.
No government should have the authority to deny Constitutional rights on the basis of whether or not they think somebody has “good moral character.”
It almost goes without saying that New York state government officials have no earthly idea what good moral character resembles.
New Yorkers need to start challenging their elected officials on these insane bills before they get passed, or else these sorts of extreme laws will just keep getting worse.
Unless there is a big change in New York, anti-gun legislation will just keep on coming.
