Supreme Court Denies Attempt to Derail NRA-Supported Case Against NYC’s Travel Ban

Opinion

New York City
The Supreme Court saw through New York City's rotten attempt to evade judicial review in this important case.

Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association on Monday applauded the United States Supreme Court's decision to reject New York City’s 11th-hour attempt to derail NYSRPA et al. v. the City of New York, et al.

This NRA-supported case challenges a New York City ordinance that violates the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding city residents by restricting lawful travel with firearms.

“The Supreme Court saw through New York City's blatant attempt to evade judicial review in this important case,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Jason Ouimet. “This case presents a national opportunity to confirm a simple truth that New York City politicians refuse to accept: Our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is fundamental, and it doesn’t vanish when we exit our homes.”

The city’s most recent attempt to moot the case follows a long line of maneuvers to derail the litigation.

Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, added, “The city clearly understands that their ordinance is indefensible and is attempting to avoid a positive Second Amendment decision by the Court. The members of the NYSRPA are thankful for the NRA's continued support in this critical case.”

The case is scheduled to be heard before the Supreme Court on Dec. 2nd, 2019.

NYC is more corrupt than Washington just with less money.

It’s absolutely clear the Democrats own all the NYC and majority of NY Judges. Due to a complete loss of public confidence they should disbar them for Article VI violations and start over by selecting Judges that abide by the US Constitution and Western Law. The mockery of law and abuses of the Judicial Branch in NYC need to stop!

Two questions should be asked of NY attorneys defending their cause during oral: 1). Is the City advocating its original legislation (travel ban) as unconstitutional, be-it chilling 2nd Amendment Rights, thus why the City re-wrote its ban, and now claiming the matter moot? Answer: Yes 2). Is it a fair statement to say if this Court did not grant certiorari, the City would not have re-written its now admitted unconstitutional ban, continuing then in its quest to chill Rights? Answer: oops. Fact is the City only changed its unlawful ban because the Supremes granted cert, as such, the taxpayers should… Read more »

The NYC travel ban is already in violation of the Firearm Owners Protection Act. I don’t understand why no one seems to mention that.

Unfortunately for every law that is challenged and over turned, 10 new oppressive laws are passed, Time for the Supreme court to rule all gun restrictions unconstitutional.

It’s time, but it won’t happen. I also don’t believe in giving them authority to decide my rights as the constitution laid out what each branch of the government is allowed to do.

Bring it. The right of the people to keep and bare arms will be upheld or there will be a reckoning. Tyranny must not stand. In a state where it’s OK to murder the unborn, in a state where it’s OK to murder young people, in a state where it is illegal to call an illegal alien an illegal alien, in a state where what has been an abomination for the last 5,000 years is deemed normal, in a state where basic human rights are abolished, in a state that is almost as corrupt as Washington the day is coming… Read more »
