    Default New York City's Desperate Attempt to Avoid Supreme Court Review

    APRIL 12, 2019


    Fairfax, Va. - Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, issued the following statement in regards to today's attempt by the City of New York to dismiss the NRA-supported Supreme Court case N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol Association, et al. v. City of N.Y., et al.:

    “The City of New York clearly knows that its current restrictions on the carrying and transportation of lawfully owned firearms are unconstitutional and will fail under any standard of constitutional review, as the NRA has been saying for years. Today, it asked the U.S. Supreme Court to ignore the Constitution and allow the City to slow walk a narrow expansion of its current policy through a lengthy bureaucratic process -- the result of which, even if adopted, would still unduly infringe upon the fundamental, individual right to keep and bear arms under the Second Amendment. That is not how things work in the Supreme Court; the Court does not put its review on hold while the government embarks on a journey that at best might fix only a limited part of the constitutional defect. This is nothing more than a naked attempt by New York City to resist Supreme Court review of policies that even New York must recognize as inconsistent with the holdings in District of Columbia v. Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago. The City of New York did not respect its citizens' Second Amendment rights before the Supreme Court granted review in this case and it will not respect them going forward. We are confident that the Court will reject New York's desperate attempt to avoid review of its blatantly unconstitutional laws."

    Why does the NRA have to drag every liberal crap-hole community before the SCOTUS, to have the SCOTUS order them to stop infringing on our rights???

    Liberals don’t care about anyone rights but theirs. They have always thought that no matter what the constitution or ever the word of God says, they are right, they know better and can do what they want buy any means necessary.
