“Ruling will make it easier for NYSRPA v Cuomo to reach the Supreme Court” Tom King

The quote below is from the decision rendered in the Maryland AW suit a few days ago. This to most Constitutional Lawyers is one of the most important statements in the decision. The ruling will make it easier for NYSRPA v Cuomo to reach the Supreme Court.         “In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment — ‘the right of law-abiding responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home,’ District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 635 (2008), and we are compelled by Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), as well as our own precedent in the wake of these decisions, to conclude that the burden is substantial and strict scrutiny is the applicable standard of review for Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment claim.”     In other words, though other appeals courts have failed to uphold the Constitution, the Fourth Circuit says the Maryland ban clearly violates the Second Amendment, and the lower court needs to figure that out. That is very good news indeed! ~ Tom King, NYSRPA Cogito ergo armatum sum     “This case was a major victory for the NRA and gun rights advocates stated Adam Winkler”, a UCLA law professor   https://www.facebook.com/NYSRPA/photos/a.10150176427881489.300806.67690716488/10153905990326489/?type=3&theater    ... read more

RE: NYSRPA v Cuomo: PARTIAL VICTORY, FIGHT CONTINUES TO THE SUPREME COURT!!!!

Second circuit court of appeals decision – NYSRPA vs. Cuomo Ladies and Gentlemen, The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals has just released their decision on the SAFE Act legislation and it has resulted in the first permanent non legislative change. The Court upheld Judge Skretney’s decision that seven round magazine limit was an arbitrary number and unconstitutional but also upheld the State’s Assault Weapon ban. It’s a great victory for the Gun Owners of New York State and the final step on our way to the U.S. Supreme Court. We want to thank NYSRPA Members, the National Rifle Association, the Gun Owners of New York State and everyone else who supports The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association’s effort to defend the Constitution of the United States and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms of all citizens. Remember we have now reached the beginning of the end of our journey. Let’s pull together and finish this fight with another victory. This time in the United States Supreme Court.... read more
