NY Carry Concealed Handgun Law Upheld

A.G. Schneiderman Wins Major Court Victory in Defense of State Gun Safety Laws

In a unanimous decision in the case of Kachalsky, et al. v. Cacace, et al, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit rejected a constitutional challenge to New York's handgun licensing statute, ruling that the law requiring individuals to demonstrate “proper cause” to obtain a license to carry concealed handguns in public does not violate the Constitution’s Second Amendment.



This goes along with my previous postings that all the landmark Supreme Court ruling did was give you the right to purchase a firearm and keep it in the home.   Not what all want to hear, but when you boil down the ruling that's what your left with.

The states have the ability to pass restrictive gun laws at any time, as long as they allow a firearm in the home and don't go overboard with associated fees.  Yes, they can require firearm registration of said firearms!

Guns shows are heavily regulated in some states, as well as some states have assault weapons bans in place.  Those laws with not be overturned by the Supreme Court!

Don't take your eye off the ball at the federal level, but the battle for firearms rights is best fought at the state level...
