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 Therefore, the following provisions are no longer in effect in New York - at least until the NY State defendants appeal and the Second Circuit addresses these issues.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.)

  • the provision requiring an applicant to prove he/she has “good moral character” in order to be issued a carry permit or have one renewed; 

  • the provision requiring the disclosure of “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” in order to complete the license application; 

  • the provision requiring a “list of former and current social media accounts of the applicant from the past three years” to complete the license application; 

  • the provision requiring “such other information required by review of the licensing application that is reasonably necessary and related to the review of the licensing application”;

  • the prohibition of carrying a concealed firearm in the following “sensitive locations”:
  1. “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);
  2. any place of worship or religious observation;
  3. public parks and zoos;
  4. airports (to the extent the license holder is complying with federal regulations) and buses;
  5. any establishment issued a license for on-premise consumption of alcohol;
  6. theaters, conference centers, and banquet halls; and
  7. any gathering of individuals to collectively express their constitutional rights to protest or assemble; and 
  8. the provision making private property a prohibited “restricted location” unless a sign permitting possession of firearms is posted.
