More Unconstitutional Gun Laws & NY Leads the Way ~ VIDEO

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Ever since the Bruen decision reminded State Legislators of their Constitutional boundaries when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, overzealous, anti-gun Governors have defiantly searched for new ways to continue violating the rights of their citizens. New York, the state that triggered The Bruen case, may be the most defiant of all.

Since Clarence Thomas’ carefully written decision, appointed Governor Hochul pushed a package of unconstitutional gun laws known as “The Concealed Carry Improvement Act” through the state legislature during an “emergency session” (similar to her predecessor’s “midnight signing” of the NY SAFE Act), turning the New York State pistol permitting process upside down. The new package of gun restrictions includes:

  • Expanding on eligibility requirements in the concealed carry permitting process, including completed firearm training courses for applicants.
  • Allowing the state to regulate and standardize training for license applicants.
  • Restricting the carrying of concealed weapons in sensitive locations and establishing that private property owners must expressly allow a person to possess a firearm, rifle, or shotgun on their property. Individuals who carry concealed weapons in sensitive locations or in contravention of the authority of an owner of private property will face criminal penalties.
  • Establishing state oversight over background checks for firearms and regular checks on license holders for criminal convictions.
  • Creating a statewide license and ammunition database.
  • Strengthening and clarifying the law relating to the sale of body armor to include hard body armor, such as the type worn by the suspect in the Buffalo shooting and the safe storage of firearms.

Besides replacing the SCOTUS’s rejected “proper cause” requirement with her new “good moral character” requirement, Hochul’s training requirements would require a new firearm course be created to satisfy the law. In defiance of Constitutional rights, Lieutenant Governor Antonio Delgado said. “With this action, New York has sent a message to the rest of the country that we will not stand idly by and let the Supreme Court reverse years of sensible gun regulations.”

A recent email from an Attorney at the New York Sheriff’s Council was leaked by an individual at the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office which indicated that there could be a temporary halt on New York State’s pistol permits between September 1 (when the new law goes into effect) and April 1, (the deadline for the creation of the new pistol course). Rightfully so, this has gun owners wondering how the 2nd Amendment can simply be suspended for 7 months just because a law was signed without the proper protocols having first been put in place. Apparently, Hochul had no regard for that as long as she was able to make her legislative statement and show her defiance toward the Supreme Court.

Lawsuits are being filed by Gun Owners of America (GOA), Gun Owners Foundation, Ukrainian immigrant Ivan Atonyu and several others against New York State for its continued gun grab and this will likely result in a restraining order on Hochul’s new package of gun laws. The permitting process will likely continue as usual in the meantime.

I recently spoke to someone in the court system who has direct knowledge from Saratoga County Judge Murphy. According to the source, the leaked email excerpt was not Judge Murphy or Saratoga County Sheriff Zurlo’s decision. It was the suggestion of an Attorney at the State Sheriff’s Office which was passed on to Saratoga County among others. Judge Murphy and Sheriff Zurlo basically said, “thanks but no thanks,” and have no plans to delay or hinder the permitting process in Saratoga County. This includes the requirement to “meet with the Judge” to determine “good moral character.” Will other New York Counties take the same approach?

The Saratoga County Sheriff and Judge do not agree with the recommendation from the Sheriff Council Lawyer. The Saratoga County Sheriff and Judge are proceeding with the teaching of the classes, issuing licenses, and keeping the pipeline open. I was told there will be no stoppage of the issuing of permits during this time.

Kevin Zacharewicz, NRA Instructor, Owner Zack’s Sports Inc., Member Training House, LLC and firearms course creator said, “As of September 1st, Saratoga County is moving forward with the State’s new requirements of an 18-hour course.” He also said he believes the State Legislators passed a law that the county or even state was not ready for but is assured Saratoga County will be ready.

The Democrats in the state legislature have created quite a problem for county sheriff departments and others who are tasked with enforcing gun laws and meeting requirements that clearly violate the rights of New York gun owners. It is now the job of our elected county officials to defend the rights of the people who put them in office. It appears Saratoga County is attempting to do that despite the draconian laws coming down at the State level. The question now becomes; what are other counties doing to either prepare for the new gun laws or protect New York gun owners from them while we wait for Hochul’s dream gun grab to be defeated in court?

So, NY’s acting Governor established “good moral character” requirement. Odd, this coming from someone who supports infanticide. Once again, NY is being too clever and cute in their gun laws. The SCOTUS will strike down these laws and they did in Bruen. However, the voters may strike down the democrats and elect a republican governor and legislature. It has happened before.

DEFY, DEFY, DEFY, DEFY, DEFY. stop filling out 4473’s……..stop putting .gov. between you and your purchases……stop insisting on doing transfers through ffl’s……stop groveling for permits…..stop being a milk sop and stand up for your GOD GIVEN RIGHTS It is long past time to overwhelm the states with mass defiance of all gun laws. Bruin has opened the door. Overwhelm the police, the courts and the streets with open and concealed carry. they can’t arrest and they can’t try everybody. DO NOT CO-OPERATE WITH THE COMMUNISTS. F’ em FORCE THEIR HANDS… MAKE THEM TRY TO GO FULL TOTALITARIAN. TORCHES AND PITCHFORKS!!!!!!!… Read more »

There should be no 18-hour Course. Is the State paying for the course? Certainly not; some of these punks are charging $1,000 for these 18 hour courses. Hochul and Cuomo stole the Taxpayer’s money and gave $20,000 to each Illegal Trespasser in the country who could make it to New York; as well as Free Driver Licenses ($80.50 for Driver Licenses for the rest of use, and of course $12.50 for the photo on the license charged by New York even if no new photo), but 18-hour courses to prevent carry permits will be costly and some will not have… Read more »

One of the main reasons we need the state militias back in force and effect as they had grand jury indictment power and could being forth charges against the “governor” and anyone else who craps on our rights in the form of a Title 18 action. Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States. For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done… Read more »

Disobedient governors and legislators will continue to violate the laws until they are brought up on charges and found guilty. When there are no consequences crime (or flaunting SCOTUS in this case) will continue.

Perhaps the lighting bolt of Liberty up their backsides,that or good ole hemp may help them understand the errors of their ways.
New York City during the revolution was a nest of Tories and nothing changes but the calendar year.

I knew these liberals would defy the court first time it was their turn to comply with a law they disagree with. So what about it New Yorkers? The Supreme court ruled YOUR way! Not Hochuls. Are you going to conform to her demands? Because she sure isn’t going to conform to yours.

She needs a tyrants farewell…

would be nice if scotus would strike them down and place her in contempt jail

Ope

In a perfect world for sure.

I cannot see how hochul’s actions are consistent with her oath of office, protected by “immunity” covering her official acts, and are not blatant “contempt of court”, SCOTUS being the supreme court of the US.

Specifically, the contempt is: CONTEMPT IN THE FACE OF THE COURT; SCANDALIZING THE COURT AND ITS JUDGES; OBSTRUCTION OF COURT PROCESSES; AND DISOBEDIENCE OF THE COURT’S JUDGEMENT.

WeWereWarned

Sir, the whole oath of office garbage is garbage, since the person taking the oath is surrendering their Constitutional rights and swearing allegiance to the government, who the Constitution is a threat to their power. A man can say they are a woman, and it is a hate crime to correct their mental illness with facts. Why do you expect any better from a socialist government employee, who follows orders to violate the Constitution. The useful idiot conservatives have made it to where a socialist enforcer can murder us armed Citizens for being armed, and they blame the victim. That… Read more »

Move near me. We need more MEN like you in our county defense force.

musicman44mag

He thinks where he lives is better than any other place in the USA and doesn’t have the guts to share what state it is. I have asked him over four times and he never responds. On the other hand he messaged me that in his state? they do not need people like me and that I should move east of Missouri because I am a conservative sell out and a republican that integrated the blacks into the white society messing things up. He also blames republicans most often for the problems with guns and segregation and never seems to… Read more »

musicman44mag, et al I just that you would all keep the discourse civil!!!

musicman44mag

I noticed that you sent your comment to me only. I don’t see an ET or AL conversing on this post.

The comment I made stems from a past action from WWW to me. You should be saying something to him not me.

Notice, he still hasn’t said where he lives but thinks he should tell me where I should and shouldn’t move to because I am a republican. I only start defending myself when I am attacked. Why don’t you message him because that’s where the whole thing started.

Boom

Maybe it’s Utah
