NRA Wins Supreme Court Case, NYSRPA v. Bruen

The National Rifle Association (NRA) welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The National Rifle Association (NRA) welcomes the Supreme Court’s decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen. The Court affirmed that the right to bear arms does not stop at a person’s front door. This is the most significant Second Amendment ruling in more than a decade.

“This is another landmark win for constitutional freedom and the NRA,” says Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA. “The decision comes at an important time – as the Senate considers legislation that undermines Second Amendment freedom. This decision unequivocally validates the position of the NRA and should put lawmakers on notice: no law should be passed that impinges this individual freedom. It also confronts a troubling problem with the Senate legislation – underscoring that these freedoms should not be left to “unguided” discretion of state and federal officials. Second Amendment freedoms belong to the people.”

LaPierre adds, “Decades of Right-to-Carry laws all across America have proven that good men and women are not the problem. This ruling will bring life-saving justice to law-abiding Americans who have lived under unconstitutional restrictions all across our country, particularly in cities and states with revolving door criminal justice systems, no cash bail and increased opposition to law-enforcement.”

The NRA has been focused on promoting “shall-issue” protocols and eliminating “may-issue” laws since the late 1980s, and before today’s decision, only six states and the District of Columbia still operated under “may-issue” statutes. The Supreme Court’s ruling today marks the end of these subjective, unconstitutional permitting schemes.

“This is a monumental win for NRA members and for gun owners across the country. New York’s egregious law, which left its residents’ self-defense rights to the whim of a government bureaucrat, has been declared unconstitutional and must be changed. New Yorkers will soon be able to defend themselves outside of their homes without first having to prove that they have a sufficient “need” to exercise their fundamental rights,” said Jason Ouimet, executive director, National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA). “This is more than just a great day for New York because this ruling opens the door to rightly change the law in the seven remaining jurisdictions that still don’t recognize the right to carry a firearm for personal protection. The NRA has been at the forefront of this movement for over 30 years and was proud to bring this successful challenge to New York’s unconstitutional law.”

The case challenged New York’s requirement that applicants for concealed carry licenses demonstrate “proper cause” to carry a firearm outside of their home. New York routinely used this requirement to deny law-abiding citizens the ability to properly protect themselves. New York is one of six states and the District of Columbia that operate under such a “may issue” regime, and the NRA has long fought to abolish this practice in favor of “shall issue” or “constitutional carry” in which law-abiding citizens can exercise their right to carry as long as they meet certain objective criteria.

While the importance of this case cannot be understated and today NRA members enjoy a well-deserved victory, NRA remains committed to continuing this fight. Today’s ruling established the right to carry does not disappear at a person’s front door, but many unconstitutional gun control laws remain in America. The NRA will continue to fight these laws until every law-abiding American can exercise their right to defend themselves and their families with the firearm of their choosing.

From the Washington post
Although some observers say it seems likely that the court took the National Rifle Association-backed lawsuit to overturn a century-old New York state law, which is similar to restrictions in seven other states, there is a surprising split among conservative judges and legal analysts that could influence how broadly the justices rule.

The person that posted this lie should be ashamed of themselves. They also should be fired.

JPM

Wayne gave him a bonus and dropped his drawers for him.

HoundDogDave

The NRA won this case? The only thing the NRA won was another opportunity to take credit for someone elses work. If anything, the NRA is probably actually ticked off that the case was won. The more that things that don’t go the way of gun rights the more they can beg for money to fix the problems the help make.

NYSRPA is affiliated with the NRA, so there’s ample reason for them to take a victory lap over this one. Frankly, they deserve it. Sorry sir but it was the NRA that brought the suit before the Supreme Court. You might want to read before posting your slanderous comments

Russn8r

I doubt NRA led this, but if so, good. So the grifter-drained NRA can die having done something loyal instead of the usual betrayal, like the latest RINO “compromise” that NRA assisted, letting pols rely on its history of letting them keep phony grades after sellouts.

“I have never believed in the general practice of carrying weapons. I do not believe in the general promiscuous toting of guns. I think it should be sharply restricted and only under licenses.” -Karl T. Frederick (RIH), NRA President, congressional hearings on the National Firearms Act of 1934

Anticipating the “NRA opposed the AWB” lie:

Fact is NRA let ‘pro-gun’ pols keep faux A & B grades after backing it, even gave Dem John Dingell an award after he quit the bd of dirs to push it.

This wink-nod M.O. lets anti-gun pols survive in pro-gun states after voting for gun control that NRA wants but pretends to oppose to avoid losing members.

12 gun grabbers like Tester in MT kept faux A grades after confirming Sotomayor, Kagan, other grabbers. Also no price paid for endorsing grabbers in other races (e.g. Obama) or anti-gun leadership (e.g. Pelosi).

As the consensus affirms, the NRA did not initiate let alone win this Second Amendment victory on its own. It was the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association who supported and joined the petitioners Brandon Koch and Robert Nash before the court. Not until after a tsunami of State Attorney Generals, national, state and local pro gun associations had filed amici curiae briefs supporting the petitioners did the NRA move to support the effort. That happened on 20 July 2021, 7 months after the the case was docketed with the Supreme Court on 23 December 2020. The NRA was… Read more »

The 2A is BIG BUSINESS for all sides of the issue.

DIYinSTL

Vicarious pleasure is one thing but vicarious credit? That’s not much better than stolen valor.

Desert Guy

Like anyone really expects a state government to obey this ruling? There is no mechanism in the Constitution for its enforcement. It’ll be “business as usual” in NY and elsewhere…

swmft

title 18 is supposed to be there to enforce these things but dumshit will never tell justice to do it

Cappy

How come Ammoland is now the PR wing of the NRA?

GOA, SAF, FPC and others are actually representing gun owners while the NRA exists to bankroll Wayne.

If you want to cull your readership, keep pushing this kind of crap.

Henry Bowman

I believe that the owners/editors are boomer fudds… It’s the only way to explain why for every 18 NRA press releases, there’s only 1 GOA or FPC credited article, and SAF only gets a slightly higher rate of mention.

Carl up North

I was not aware the NRA was a party to the NYSRPA v. Bruen or had coin in the fighting this lawsuit.

Watch um

You need to read before you speak, yes the NRA was a party along with the GOA and others.

STRAIGHTSHOOTER

HEY GOMER , ALL CARL UP NORTH SAID WAS HE WAS NOT AWARE OF THE NRA BEING INVOLVE . YOU NEED TO READ BEFORE YOU SPEAK

“This is another landmark win for constitutional freedom and the NRA,” says Wayne LaPierre, executive vice president of the NRA.”

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot what that Turd has to say.

willyd

Another claim by the NRA on someone elses fight as LaPUE has spent much ofthe NRA’s money on his personal expences, what a shell game he plays!!!!!!

AZ Lefty

So by “Winning” Wayne got a new bespoke suit

Cam

Naw, probably a new yacht and summer home.
As far as the case, it’s was more likely “In spite of the NRA, gun rights were partially returned to people.”

Terry

No, just an ice cream cone from Joe and a BJ from Kameltoes!

Watch um

What fu**ing is it your business, you don’t pay dues $$ to the NRA all the rest of you a**holes can kiss my NRA ass

swmft

we are pissed about the money we paid for lifetime memberships that we feal we got screwed on so suck it up and shut up, or join a group that IS fighting for our rights not giving them away

Terry

We’d have to kiss you all over. You’re all ass!

WeWereWarned

Sir, I would gladly send you a shell of buckshot, if you promise to gargle it and clean out the infection between your ears.
Go support negotiating rights away on another website as we 2nd Amendment supporters own guns to keep cowards like you away from our rights.

Russn8r

No thanks, plus we’d have to get Wayne’s arm out of it first.

Orion

you cant fix stupid nor idiocy and these gurls show it every damn day.

Henry Bowman

NRA once again stealing credit from the many others who made this possible!! SHAME ON YOU, AMMOLAND, FOR PRINTING THIS LIE!

If what one senator said is true, TRAITOR WAYNE didn’t just bankroll the dirty 15 RINOs to backstab us, HE WROTE THE GUN CONTROL BILL ITSELF!

At this point, anyone willing to defend this turd is part of the problem.

Ope

NRA wins this case my ass. Still doing what they do best,taking credit for doing nothing.Anyone want to guess how much money the former NRA spent for this “win” in NY ?

Henry Bowman

Zero. However, Wayne spent $43 million in NRA funds to secure the vote of 15 RINOs AGAINST US.

Green Mtn. Boy

I tire of constantly reading this tripe continually pushed on Ammoland readers.

Henry Bowman

Bro, I feel ya. I know there used to be a guy (forgot his name) that was a little too vocal on here, railed A LOT against Little Hemmorhoid Hutchinson and called out the Ammoland staff for their WLP limited-edition golden kneepads, and suddenly POOF! He was perma-zucced. I think he was dead-on about the staff of Ammoland being partial towards the NRA, and I ask myself; “Now that we know that Radioactive Wayne paid the RINOs $43M to vote for the gun control bill, and possibly even wrote the original draft, will Ammoland repudiate the NRA, since the BoD… Read more »

I do agree the playing both sides is what they seam to do looks more like a fundraising scam than actual defense of second amendment ; now they have this lets take that so we can get more money to undo it while we set up the other ……………..big shell game

what 43 million are you ranting about? evidence or more blubbering?

Henry Bowman

You clearly do NOT keep up with 2A news, do you?
That info came from ARFCOM News. I already posted the link at least once or twice.

Russn8r

Take the enemy’s money, use it to provide a platform for pro-gun-rights writers & comments. I suspect that’s what they do with NRA-NSSF-ATF. It’s what I’d do.

It’s what the enemy does to 100 million “conservatives” who are too lazy & self-serving to even try to find alternatives to paying anti-American companies like Amazon. They take our money and use it against us. We’re fools not to do the same.

swmft

why did they print this rubbish? pew pew needs to go and that they let new york have this law 100 years says more about nra “leadership” than almost anything but 1934 act

Henry Bowman

At this point, Ammoland should not be posting anything ever again about the NRA. They bankrolled the 15 RINOs to vote against us as a whole, Wayne supposedly even drafted the bill. NRA needs to just go away!!

Dubi Loo

Maybe the NRA could claim victory IF they had helped finance this suit instead of spending money on the legal fees for the corrupt WLP and NRA administration including many Directors.

Ope

Tom King is a NRA BOD member and total thief,liar and Lapierre yes man. He also heads the NYSRPA.King represents everything that’s destroyed the NRA.
