USA – We saw New York State’s blatant defiance of the NYSRPA v. Bruen case when the Democrat-dominant legislature slapped the Supreme Court in the face with the implementation of the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA) that went into effect in September of 2022. The CCIA was quickly voted on in Albany and signed into law in July of 2022, immediately after the June SCOTUS ruling when they Declared New York’s existing gun laws to be unconstitutional.
Matt Mallory, Founder of Public Safety and Education (psanded.com) / Host of Meet the Pressers (meetthepressers.com) said, “Why is it so hard for NY politicians to just obey the rulings from the highest court of the land? They expect us to obey their laws even though we all know true criminals won’t! Just to show us the distain NY politicians have for it’s legal law-abiding gun owners, the CCIA law could get you charged with a felony and over a year in prison for not being in compliance with the law! I wish SCOTUS could do the same for the Bruen decision. I bet Politicians would be less likely to blatantly defy a SCOTUS ruling ever again.”
Many people are asking, “how is this possible if the Supreme Court declares a law unconstitutional?”
Easy. Albany Democrats do what they want.
We must understand the mind of a tyrant. Although normal people would respect the ruling of the highest court in the land, Democrats spit in the face of our sacred judicial system if it doesn’t suit them politically. We are watching the same scenario play out with a recent 2019 ruling on stun guns.
Although SCOTUS ruled that the Second Amendment applies “to all instruments that constitute bearable arms,” NYS Law S 265.01 remains on the books. The unconstitutional law continues to put New York residents at risk of heavy fines and even jail time for possessing a stun gun.
The law states that a person is guilty of criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a class A misdemeanor with up to a year in prison, when: He or she possesses any firearm, electronic dart gun, electronic stun gun…
Although some jurisdictions have decided to ignore the State’s unconstitutional law, in support of the 2nd Amendment, Patrolman Zonnevylle arrested Austin T. Johnson for possession of an electric stun gun. This incident occurred in the 100 block of East Garden Street in the City of Rome, New York. Luckily for Johnson, the case was dismissed on a technicality. The law, being in blatant defiance of multiple court rulings, remains on the books today, continuing to put New Yorkers at risk of arrest.
Matt Mallory said, “Before COVID, I met with the NY Senator’s office that put a bill forward in 2019 to reclassify these tools under NY law. That bill, S2421, just keeps getting recycled every session and goes nowhere. This is a perfect example of New York State politicians dragging their feet. Is it on purpose? I leave that for you to decide.”
Our founding fathers would’ve never believed that future Governors and State Legislators would make Americans choose between their own personal safety or jail time. While Governor Hochul lets prisoners out of jail, it would seem those cells will not remain vacant for long as long as there are good people willing to defend themselves against her recently released detainees.
The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.
