Everyone, I hope, has heard about the Supreme Court case of The District of Columbia v. Heller, where a security guard has stepped up to say that the D.C. gun ban is an unconstitutional infringement on the Second Amendment, his right to bear arms.
The New York Sun has published that if gun enthusiasts are victorious in the supreme court case, laws in New York City may change. Currently in New York City to own a handgun, it would cost almost $1000 in fees and is a very lengthy process.
Unfortunately, Mayor Bloomberg has come about as a definite foe of the gun community, where he has pressed lawsuits against manufactuers and retail establishments across the east coast. Something that the people of NYC should consider when voting next 😉
While sometimes New York City seems like a completely different state when compared to the remainder of New York, the laws and actions regarding firearms in NYC can have a great impact on the rest of the state.
Personally, I think we, as gun enthusiasts, need to support the Second Amendment all across New York State, with hopes that we can fight these ridiculous anti-gun laws.
