Demand Reparations For NY Crime Victims Denied CCW Licenses

Human Rights Lawsuit

BELLEVUE, WA – -(AmmoLand.com)- More than two months after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down New York State’s “proper cause” requirement that was used for generations to deny carry licenses to untold numbers of people, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms says crime victims prevented from being legally armed deserve reparations for decades of disregard for their rights.

“A law found to be unconstitutional,” said CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, “was unconstitutional all along. Crime victims who were deprived of their most important right of self-defense under color of law deserve reparations. The state should compensate them, or their surviving families.”

Since the unconstitutional requirement was in place for a century, Gottlieb said, the state should apologize to all the people who were arbitrarily denied their right to bear arms, even if that apology is posthumous.

“Instead of scrambling to perpetuate a philosophy of citizen disarmament,” he contended, “New York officials should beg forgiveness from gun owners, especially those who were victims of violent crimes because they were prevented from being armed to defend themselves. There can never be enough compensation to surviving families who lost a loved one, even if it happened decades ago.

“Instead of complying not only with the letter but the spirit of the high court’s ruling, New York residents are now being told they must disarm if their homes or businesses have been recently placed inside the boundaries of a newly-created ‘sensitive area’ like the heart of New York city,” Gottlieb said. “Empire State anti-gunners are a disgusting crowd who are determined to prevent as many people as possible from being armed and able to defend their homes, businesses and lives.

“It’s time for New York officials from Gov. Kathy Hochul on down to the lowest level bureaucrat to understand they are public servants, and their constituents are citizens, not subjects,” Gottlieb observed. “If they cannot abide by, and operate within the limitations of the constitution, they should tender their resignations and find jobs outside of government.”

Reparations? I think executing public officials (elected or not) for this would be the best form of preventing this from happening again anywhere in the country. Might not matter since the country will be in Civil War soon and all these people are on “the list”.

Bankrupting a government to where they have to sell parks, schools, etc., would be a good start.

“It’s time for New York officials from Gov.

I wouldn’t mind seeing it codified into law, it is now anyway they all take the oath, they just ignore the oath after they chump us into voting for them. Another thing that I… Read more »

Best thing that can be done is to turn new york into the countries biggest prison ever, just build a wall around manhatten, have the wall say one hundred feet high 5 feet. Tal and 5 feet thick. Put all the known criminals in there along with those that backed them and just leave them there for life.

I guess we will now see if Hochul and her New Nazi Party are above the purvue of the US Supreme Court, or if they overstepped their bounds, with their authoritarian CCIA law that disgraced the Supreme Court by responding to NYSRPA V. Bruin with a FAR MORE RESTRICTIVE law to replace the one that was declared UNCONSTITUTIONAL. (Doing so with quite a SMUG SMIRK, I might add!) So, now in the second GOA suit brought against CCIA, either the District Court, which previously declared the law UNCONSTITUTIONAL, but did not enjoin because of (supposed) lack of standing, WILL SLAP… Read more »
