New York Throws Anti-Gun Temper Tantrum



Governor Kathy Hochul receives word of Supreme Court Decision, June 30, 2022

New York State’s anti-gun legislators are really not taking the Supreme Court’s Bruen decision well …

A few days ago, our friends over at Freedom’s Lodge reported that New York State was already showing early signs of refusing to cooperate with the Supreme Court’s recent decision in the NYSRPA v. Bruen case. Other states with “may-issue” concealed-carry laws had already told their law enforcement to stop enforcing their now-illegal laws … but not New York. Governor Kathy Hochul and her gun-grabbing toadies in the New York legislature just curled out a “legislative package” that amounts to little more than a temper tantrum encoded into law. Today, the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action has the details. (We here at Guns & Gadgets Daily have the appropriate illustrations.)


Anti-Second Amendment politicians returned to Albany late this week and did the bidding of Gov. Kathy Hochul.  She called the Legislature back into an “extraordinary” session this week.  The session was anything but extraordinary. Lawmakers sat around in Albany for 36 hours while one party wrote the bill.  In typical one-party-rule fashion, this was done under a “message of necessity” with bill language made available for the first time in the middle of the night.  The normal three-day aging process for legislation was cast aside.  The public was almost universally shut out.

Governor Kathy Hochul reads the Bill of Rights for the first time, July 1, 2022

Democrats in Albany are accustomed to getting their way.  Why would anyone expect them to listen to the United States Supreme Court?  As a result, they wasted little time scurrying to find workarounds in the wake of the landmark NYSRPA v. Bruen decision which struck down the state’s unconstitutional “proper cause” standard for the issuance of pistol permits.

New York’s Governor and Legislature answered by drastically expanding “gun-free zones.”  As one Senator remarked, this bill essentially makes the entire state of New York a gun-free zone.  In remarkable fashion, they took this opportunity to go above and beyond simply thumbing their nose at the Supreme Court and expanded their attack on the Second Amendment to include everything from ammunition background checks, to point-of-contact status, to mandatory storage, among others.

What do you do when your governor’s a brat?

The Majority Party initially said they were doing this to “comply” with Bruen, but in closing remarks those pretenses seemed to be dropped (or forgotten) when Senators began revealing their true motives.  Sen. Robert Jackson (D-Washington Heights) said they were doing this to “counter” the Supreme Court.  These actions almost certainly guarantee that New York will be back in front of the Supreme Court.

Today’s vote shows how little regard New York Democrats have for the rule of law and our institutions.  This should come as little surprise, as the state has seen historic crime under a one-party-rule and bail “reform” in combination with anti- policing policies that have ceded control of the streets to criminals.  Fortunately, New Yorkers will have a tremendous opportunity in November to replace Gov. Hochul and her cronies.

    Yeah, but it doesn’t mean NYS will follow the Court’s ruling! Remember, Leftists follow their own set of rules, which don’t apply to anything they disagree with!

      And they still likely won’t comply. It’ll take an executive branch that gives a f*ck to do anything about it. We’re a couple years away from that just yet. Assuming the Dem’s don’t find a way to fix the next election.

        I live in UPstate NY.It will take an action like President Eisenhower did to their brethren in the South to uphold the Civil rights.

    i think this is actually a good thing in a way yes new Yorkers will have to suffer a little longer but when they inevitably end up back at the courts i think the Supreme court will be fed up with new york and shut down any remaining restrictions in such a way that no state will be able to do any workarounds whatsoever.
    i believe they will close any remaining gun control doors.

      SCOTUS needs to define their use of “reasonable restrictions”, beyond which is not permissible.

    I guess the NY state democratic government has no problem wasting the people’s money fighting lawsuits that they cannot possibly hope to win in Federal court.

    NYC? Why? Gavin Newsom eliminated every tenet of “law” in regards to clearing brush from the forest, such as “cool burns”. Why? Enacted by republicans. Now, California has out of control wildfires, erosion of soils , and a draught. What has this to do with NYC? Out of control “democrat mayors’, versus Rudy Guiliani. Look at the crime statistics and the companies doing business in NYC. Go ahead and compare. Crime was down and business was up when Rudy was Mayor. DiBlasio/Huchle[sp] , well crime is way up, business is down, way down. Thanks DiBlasio/Huchle annnd AOC who ran out Amazon, and raised the minimum wage.

    One thing’s for sure. This abortion of a bill, just opened up the killing fields for criminals. Gun free zones basically put a target on every citizens back in these places. Who better to rob, accost, rape, and murder than people who cannot defend themselves. The DEMIRAT UTOPIA of murder, and Mayhem.

    This will also be taken up to, and by, SCOTUS, and in the immortal words of “Stillwell” in “A League Of Their Own”:
    You’re going to lose!

    Then those New York democrats should be thrown in jail. That is why government has checks and balances. Just in case one party thinks they are gods and do not have to follow anything. This is why people voted for trump. These politicians can not get control of the people so they do anything to force compliance while still letting the criminals wander. Law abiding citizens suffer. They shown that they are also criminals
