(RepublicanInformer.com)- Last Friday, the New York State Senate and Assembly both passed new gun legislation which was quickly signed into law by Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul.
New York’s new concealed carry legislation is meant to counter the Supreme Court decision that overturned the state’s earlier restrictions on concealed carry applicants. But in reality, this new law is nothing more than an attempt to avoid adhering to the Court’s ruling.
The law mandates that those applying for a concealed carry permit must provide the state with three years of their social media history. Applicants must also provide written character references and sit down for an in-person interview, all so the corrupt reprobates running New York can decide whether to deem them of “good moral character” and worthy of exercising their Second Amendment rights.
But there’s more.
If by some wild stretch of the imagination, a law-abiding New Yorker manages to obtain a concealed carry permit in New York, the law turns virtually every public place into a gun-free zone.
The law bans concealed carry holders from carrying their guns in so-called “sensitive locations,” including public transportation, churches, schools, parks, bars and restaurants, hospitals, sporting and entertainment venues, government buildings, polling places, and even Times Square.
Rather than “stopping gun violence,” this law handed potential mass shooters a comprehensive list of all the places where they could murder a lot of people without worrying that a law-abiding citizen might be carrying a weapon.
Great work, guys!
When the bill was passed last week, Governor Kathy Hochul expressed excitement at the prospect of signing the bill during the July 4th holiday weekend, explaining that this massive infringement on the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments is “the embodiment of what it means to be an American.”
On Wednesday, The Federalist’s senior legal correspondent Margo Cleveland appeared on Buck Sexton’s show “Hold the Line” to discuss New York State’s new unconstitutional gun law.
