Not Seeking Cert in NYSRPA Case

Members and Supporters: After three years of continued movement through the Judicial System the death of Justice Antonin Scalia accomplished a feat the anti-gunners were unable to do; it stopped our lawsuit. Below please find a statement Jay Porter a Constitutional Lawyer very much involved in NYSRPA V Cuomo and many other Constitutional issues prepared the statement below. If you have any questions please forward them to Mr. Porter at jporter@babc.com Ten or so days ago, all those who cherish the freedoms guaranteed by the Second Amendment suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. Justice Scalia was the author of the Heller decision and was a staunch defender of the right to keep and bear arms. Unfortunately, with his passing, it is likely that there are, at most, only four justices committed to a proper understanding of the Second Amendment. Given what we know or believe about the current makeup of the Supreme Court, the best case scenario would be a 4-4 decision, which would result in the Second Circuit’s decision being affirmed. Accordingly, at present, there is no chance of reversing the Second Circuit’s decision upholding New York’s gun ban on safety enhancing features and life-saving standard capacity magazines. There is, however, a very great risk that, in the absence of Justice Scalia’s influence, a majority could in fact vote to affirm the Second Circuit case, which would result in binding Supreme Court precedent and create a potentially insurmountable obstacle to the practice and enjoyment of those rights elucidated in the Heller decision.

“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
