Appeals court rejects lawsuit against state's new gun law

Text Size: A | A

A midlevel state court has rejected claims that New York’s new gun law violates the state Constitution because it was passed too quickly and restricts the rights of a citizen militia. The Appellate Division decision Wednesday upheld a judge’s ruling that state law generally prohibits judicial review of Gov.

This was predictable. This law will not be canned until it hits the US Supreme Court. The plaintiffs have no chance of having it overturned when it goes before a bench loaded full of Leftist's....

To my dippy friend schdryes, you need to look up the Supreme Court case from a few years ago when it decided District of DC v. Heller, which pretty much harpooned the DC gun ban law. In this decision the court ruled that municipalities may restrict but not ban the right to own a firearm which includes magazines. You see us so called "gun nuts" know more about the Constitution then you moronic Leftist's think. We "gun nuts" actually do something called research which is something I have never heard of a Leftist ever doing. The American Left reacts to an incident with emotion and not with facts to back up any argument or debate which was done in passing the SFAEACT. The law like we all saw in the Heller case will be overturned and cost Andy Cuomo his job. My suggestion to you and all Leftist's who hold the 2nd Amendment in contempt is to actually read the this document called our Constitution you might learn something in between dope smoking sessions.
