New York Gun Law Blocked by Federal Judge

On the eve of the election, New York Governor Kathy Hochul was dealt a fairly significant blow in the federal courts.

Various parts of the new gun control law that was signed were blocked.

District Court Judge Glenn Suddaby said the law invoked “unprecedented constitutional violations.”

Second Amendment Win

The decision was celebrated by the Gun Owners of America (GOA).

Erich Pratt, GOA senior vice president, stated, “We are excited to see Kathy Hochul finally served a plate of humble pie, and we are fully prepared to continue the fight should she again attempt to disarm the citizens of her state at a time when her party’s policies are only escalating the danger that everyday citizens face.”

It was not a complete win, but it was pretty significant.

For instance, the state can still block concealed carry owners from carrying their weapons in Times Square, public playgrounds, libraries, nurseries, and preschools.

However, concealed carry was still possible at mental hospitals, places of worship, public parks, zoos, theaters, conference centers, protests, and bars.

This is now the second major loss for the state of New York in terms of gun control.
