The Supreme Court lets New York enforce gun laws during the trial

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court allows New York to continue enforcing a purge new gun law To ban guns from “sensitive places” like schools and playgrounds for now while a court challenge is fought.

The judges on Wednesday rejected an appeal by the challengers to the law. The gun owners wanted the Supreme Court to overturn a federal appeals court order that temporarily stayed a lower court decision blocking portions of the law. The Court of Appeal has not yet completed its review of the case, and judges are often reluctant to intervene in these circumstances. Judges may consider the case and the law more broadly in the future.

New York lawmakers rewrote the state’s handgun laws in the summer after a June Supreme Court ruling invalidated the old New York system for issuing permits to carry handguns outside the home. The ruling said Americans have the right to carry firearms in public in self-defense, invalidating New York law that required people to show a special need to be licensed to carry a gun outside of the home to get house. The ruling was a major nationwide extension of gun rights and led to challenges to other, similar state laws.

the new New York law passed The ruling broadly expanded the number of people who can obtain a license to carry a handgun, but it increased training requirements for applicants and required them to provide more information, including a list of their social media accounts. Applicants for a license must also demonstrate “good morals”. In addition, the law included a long list of “sensitive locations” where firearms are prohibited, including: schools, playgrounds, places of worship, entertainment venues, liquor outlets and Times Square.

However, US District Judge Glenn Suddaby did declared several parts of the law unconstitutional and issued a interim disposal Exclusion of Enforcement of Certain Provisions. But the US Circuit Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit had put that judgment on hold while considering the case. Challengers to the law had asked the Supreme Court to step in and allow Suddaby’s ruling, which blocks parts of the law, to come into effect while the case goes ahead.
