It’s Gonna Be A Great Week! by Tom Reynolds
Yesterday and Today could turn out to be a bad day for Kathy Hochul and the gun grabbers in NY State.
Please call or text or email a friend and remind them to get out to vote. If we get out every single like-minded New Yorker who is ready to get America and our state back on track, we win.
If we lose, we condemn ourselves to a future of darkness.

Judge Suddaby issued decision regarding the ‘Antonyuk v Hochul’ (formerly Antonyuk v Bruen) case about the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (“CCIA”). NY State under Attorney General Letitia James were appealing an earlier decision that went against them. They lost again.
Judge Suddaby found many of the provisions of the CCIA to be unconstitutional infringements of the Second Amendment. The Court then preliminarily enjoined the State defendants, including “their officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys,” from enforcing many – but not all - provisions of the CCIA:
Further, Judge Suddaby denied the State’s request for a limitation on the scope or stay of his injunction, pending further appeal. Therefore, the following provisions are no longer in effect in New York - at least until the NY State defendants appeal and the Second Circuit addresses these issues. (And James and Hochul will appeal, even if not justified, since, as SCOPE has previously pointed out, they work on the taxpayer’s dime.)
- “any location providing . . . behavioral health, or chemical dependance care or services” (but not places to which the public or a substantial group of persons have not been granted access);
- any place of worship or religious observation;
- public parks and zoos;
- airports (to the extent the license holder is complying with federal regulations) and buses;
- any establishment issued a license for on-premise consumption of alcohol;
- theaters, conference centers, and banquet halls; and
- any gathering of individuals to collectively express their constitutional rights to protest or assemble; and
- the provision making private property a prohibited “restricted location” unless a sign permitting possession of firearms is posted.
