Supreme Court repeals New York’s gun law in major ruling on expanding gun rights

The Supreme Court on Thursday overturned a centuries-old New York gun law that required anyone seeking a license to carry a concealed handgun stashed outside the home to have “good cause” to did so in the first major Second Amendment decision from the court in more than a decade.

In decision 6-3, the judges held that requiring anyone seeking a permit to carry a concealed handgun outside the home to determine “good cause” violates the second and third amendments. 14, which “defends the right of an individual to carry a handgun-tool outside the home. ”

“For those of us who work in the marble halls, constantly guarded by a dedicated and vigilant police force, the Second Amendment guarantees seem out of place. late and redundant,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the majority opinion. “But the framers had a clear choice: They gave all Americans the right to bear arms in self-defense.”

Judge Samuel Alito explained in a concurring opinion that in the District of Columbia’s 2008 decision against Heller, regarding possession of a handgun in the home, that the superior court decided that ” people”, not only members of the “militia” have the right to use guns in self-defense.

“Because many people face a serious risk of deadly violence when they venture outside their homes, the Second Amendment was understood at the time of its passage to apply in those circumstances, ‘ wrote Alito. “Therefore, today’s decision that a State may not enforce a law, such as New York’s Sullivan Act, effectively prevents its law-abiding residents from carrying firearms for this purpose.”

The 135-page ruling on the case, the New York State Rifles & Pistol Association v. Bruen, comes as the nation has been engulfed in gun violence in recent months, including a shooting at the University of New York. a supermarket in Buffalo, New York and a school. Filmed in Uvalde, Texas. The ruling makes it easier to carry a gun in New York – and perhaps beyond.

“It is outrageous that at a time when the nation is taking gun violence into account, the Supreme Court recklessly introduced New York law restricting who can carry concealed weapons,” said New York Governor Kathy Hochul speak after the comments were made, added that her office is considering their options, including calling a special session of the state legislature. “I will continue to do everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe from gun violence.”

Justice Stephen Breyer in his dissenting post addressed the recent mass shootings, pointing out “the dangers posed by firearms”, but argued that firearms regulation places a “complicated matter – one that should be resolved by the legislature rather than the courts.”

Breyer writes: “Many States have attempted to address some of the dangers of gun violence just described by passing laws that limit, in a variety of ways, who can purchase, carry or use different types of weapons. “Courts today have gravely burdened States’ efforts to do so.”

The court’s decision “does not prohibit States from imposing licensing requirements for carrying handguns in self-defense,” Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote in a concurring opinion piece attended by Chief Justice John Roberts, note that this decision does not affect existing licensing regulations in 43 States. But it affects other states with similar licensing rules as New York – like California, New Jersey, Maryland, Hawaii and Massachusetts.

President Joe Biden said he was “deeply disappointed” by the Supreme Court’s decision, saying it “contrasses both common sense and the Constitution, and would be deeply troubling to all of us.” .”

“In light of the horrific attacks in Buffalo and Uvalde, as well as the daily acts of gun violence that go unnoticed across the country, we must do more as a society – not as a society. must be less – to protect our fellow Americans,” Biden said in the statement. “Life is on the rope.”
