Posted on 11/27/2012 2:18:53 PM PST by AtlasStalled
A federal appeals court has upheld a New York State law limiting concealed-carry gun ownership, rejecting arguments that the law violates the Second Amendment right to bear arms. * * * To get a concealed-carry permit in New York, a gun owner must show proper cause, defined as a special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community or of persons engaged in the same profession.

Any other ruling would screw up the Sullivan Law of 1911.
Section 400 New York Penal Law. We mustn’t have that.
These courts are going to fight that pesky 2nd amendment to the bitter end.
The Heller decision only pertained to carrying a gun in your HOME? Good Lord! What happens if you get caught carrying a 17 oz. soft drink outside your home?
New Jersey has the same kind of provision, which effectively bars the unconnected from their Second Amendment right to self-defense. Your cause or reason is never sufficient.
Might be worth some prisoner somewhere filing an appeal of his sentence because the judge was incompetent as counsel due to his or her affiliations with organized crime.
Westchester County requires a permit holders to recertify his permit every 5 years for a $10.00 fee. There is also a rule that if your pistol is loaded and unlocked it must be within immediate reaching distance even in your home. If you go to kitchen for a drink and leave your loaded, unlocked pistol in the bedroom you have committed a misdemeanor. The Liberals in Westchester are always trying to find ways to get around the second amendment without attacking it directly. They also pressure the local representatives to stop the gun shows at the county center.
(do I really need the '/s'?)
gun owner woman seeking an abortion must show proper cause, defined as a special need for self-protection terminating a pregnancy distinguishable from that of the general community or of persons engaged in the same profession.
There... I'm sure the courts would strike down THIS law... even though a Constitutional right isn't at stake.
“the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed”
SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED
Do the bodyguards of the politicians, the wealthy and the well-connected have to show “proper cause” for carrying concealed?
And if so, what is their “proper cause”? Is it perhaps that the lives they are paid to protect are of higher value than those of the average citizen who are not allowed to possess a firearm?
And who is it that assigns a value on an individual’s life?
what’s next... lets imagine...
a citizen must show “proper cause” to exercise their right to free speech, and to get a permit to talk unless “ a special need for self-protection” is called for?
“Is it perhaps that the lives they are paid to protect are of higher value than those of the average citizen who are not allowed to possess a firearm?”
You ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait until Mau-Mau Buckwheat stacks his obumacare death panels with black racists. Their sole purpose will be to condemn old white guys to death because their lives have no value.
A decision like this is why the judiciary in this country should be considered nothing more than BLACK ROBED TERRORISTS!
“The three-judge panel of the court’s Second Circuit, noting that “New Yorks efforts in regulating the possession and use of firearms predate the Constitution” and continued with the 1911 Sullivan Law, said none of the plaintiffs demonstrated a qualifying need for self-protection beyond that of any other member of the public.”
Unbelievable. In other words, NY existed and had gun laws before the Constitution was ratified so the Constitution doesn’t have to be followed on this issue. They are essentially saying the 2nd Amendment doesn’t apply. Leave it to a liberal judge.
Why anyone would live or even go visit ny is beyond me.
America had better realize that it deserves whoever they put in office whether they are RAT or GOP clowns or POTUS.
Nobody forced the present administration on the American people but the results will be devastating all the same.
(Thank you Lord that my C.I.C was Ike Eisenhower.)
In other words, only members of the ruling class need apply.
the Supreme court is going to strike it down...
Clearly, the judges had their heads up their collective assh*les and took a p*ss on the constitution.
Happens all the time in Leftist enclaves.
