With a conservative-dominated Supreme Court, I would imagine gun retailers in New York thought for sure they had a winning case.
They were challenging new NY concealed carry law that puts restrictions on where concealed carry can be used as well as more stipulations that must be met by retailers.
Not only did they lose, but there was no dissent to hang their hat on.
State Law Wins
The new law forbids carrying in what they are calling "sensitive areas." These are more or less public meeting places, such as stadiums, museums, parks, etc.
Additionally, it will require "revised record-keeping and new safety requirements on retailers; and mandates background checks on all ammunition purchases."
The attorney for gun retailers stated, "The list of new mandatory compliance even goes so far as a turnover of acquisition and disposition records… which the state of New York attorneys have admitted will be used to create the first-ever gun owners registry housed at the New York State Police."
Attorney Paloma Capanna continued, "We are disappointed that not one of the nine justices saw fit to grant the plaintiffs some stay of enforcement of the new laws against them.
"We are challenging the ability of the state of New York to target dealers in firearms in the lawful stream of commerce, to put them out of business, which is what the new laws will do. So it really was unfortunate to see that we couldn't get any emergency temporary injunction against those laws."
There are still aspects of this law working their way through the lower courts, but this is an absolutely crushing blow for gun retailers in New York as well as Second Amendment advocates around the country.
We all know how this works, right? One liberal state gets past the court, we all know more will be filing, then a federal law gets put through and we all pay the price.
