NY Law Banning Concealed Carry in Churches Gets Judicial Smackdown.

"The Constitution and Bill of Rights are the Status Quo"

The NY law banning concealed carry in churches was smacked down by a judge on Thursday. It seems the deep blue state has not learned its lesson after the Supreme Court ruled against their restrictions in the Bruen case. After that decision, they immediately passed gun legislation that attempted to go around the Supreme Court’s ruling. So far that’s been a huge bust.

U.S. District Judge John Sinatra Jr., issued an injunction blocking the law from taking effect, arguing the law violated the 14th amendment.

“The court reiterates that ample Supreme Court precedent addressing the individuals right to keep and bear arms – from Heller and McDonald to its June 2022 decision in Bruen – dictates that New York’s new place of worship restriction is equally unconstitutional,” Sinatra wrote.

“The Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the Status quo – not 2022 legislation on the books for nine weeks.”

“Legislative enactments may not eviscerate the Bill of Rights,” Sinatra wrote.  “Every day they do is one too many.”

“The nation’s history does not countenance such an incursion into the right to keep and bear arms across all places of worship across the state. The right to self defense is no less important and no less recognized at these places.” (Daily Caller)

In recent years, threats against churches have increased ot the point tha tin some areasm church leaders are actively holding training session for their congregations or leadership. Just recently a threat surfaced against synagogues in Jew Jersey – the perpetrator was located without incident. But there are many situations in which it took a parishioner with a weapon to stop the carnage.

The NY law banning concealed carry in churches is not the only part of the new law to be smacked down. Another one is the rule that concealed carry permit applicants have to submit their social media information for “review.”

U.S. District Judge Glenn Suddaby ruled in October that there are several places in the law that are unconstitutional, specifically requiring applicants to prove their “good moral character” and the requirement to submit social media information. He also rejected the portion that required an applicant to disclose the names and contact information of everyone who resided in a gun owner’s house. The judge allowed 3 days for the state to appeal, but the injunction remains.

The injunctions in effect block the law from being enforced pending further action by other courts. New York’s hysterical reaction to the Bruen ruling shows that they are so deep into trying to control the people that they basically gave the middle finger to the Supreme Court. They refuse to learn their lesson.
