Federal judge strikes down parts of New York's new gun laws that restricted conceal carry and required gun applicants' social media history
· · Oct 8, 2022 · NottheBee.com

Remember how New York Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a law to make anyone applying for a handgun license to turn over their social media accounts so that their "conduct and character" could be judged?

Yeah, guess what?

That's totally unconstitutional.

A federal judge has struck down that and other parts of New York's gun law.

From CNN:

The state, however, cannot enforce a concealed carry restriction on public transportation, including subway cars and railroads; summer camps; at entertainment, gaming or sporting events; or zoos, libraries, parks, homeless shelters, domestic violence victims' residential programs and licensed childcare programs among others, in part because these places are in locations where law enforcement or security are "presumably – readily available."

Additionally, the state cannot enforce a requirement which would have required a prospective gun owner to turn over three years of their social media accounts.

At least some of the insane parts of this law are struck down thanks to this judge.

From the Post Millennial:

Federal Judge Glenn Suddaby blocked parts of a sweeping New York gun legislation package that went into law in September that involved strict application requirements for obtaining concealed carry permits and locations where concealed carry was prohibited on Thursday...

Judge Suddaby of the Northern District of New York in Syracuse also gave three days for an appeal to his ruling, giving Hochul and New York state representatives time to appeal.That three-day window also allows the Gun Owners of America to challenge the entirety of the legislation in a lawsuit.

Hopefully, the group will take the opportunity and file a lawsuit to get the entirety of the anti-gun law struck down.

Why these Dems want only the BAD guys to have guns is beyond me.
