ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A state judge is scheduled to hear arguments challenging New York's tough new gun law by more than 1,000 plaintiffs who claim it violates the state constitution because it was passed too quickly and restricts the guns of its citizen militia.
Robert Schulz, who's helping lead the effort, wants a preliminary injunction from Justice Thomas McNamara to stop further implementation of the law...

I was googling for info on that three-day waiting period — looks like this injunction has already been rejected.
“Cuomo used a message of necessity on Jan. 14, which allows him to skip the otherwise mandatory three-day waiting period before final passage of a bill. Bob Schulz, head of the group We The People of New York Inc., argued on behalf of the plaintiffs that Cuomos memo contained misrepresentations about what the bill would actually do.
“Supreme Court Justice Thomas McNamara said he denied the motion because he was constrained by previous decisions of the states highest court.
“The Court of Appeals has been clear, is clear, that judicial intervention or judicial review of a message of necessity is not allowed, McNamara said.”
As if anybody cares about Constitutions anymore, except a few old die-hard bitter clingers.
Do you know what a Hoover Permit is?
Why stop there? The Sullivan Act post McDonald, would certainly be unconstitutional, not to mention the trype in NY Safe Act..
FReepmail me if you want on or off my New York ping list.
Thanks for the link.
Isn’t it amazing how previous decisions by a court are considered to be rendered by God and not reviewable. Any Lawless political decision stands till the end of time. The court system in this country is not going to save this country. It dooms it.
That map is insane.
The law passed in areas where it is not needed yet where it is needed the most, it has not been proposed. It is quite clear this law is against law abiding hunters.
Albany: proposed. This has got to be a joke. Of all counties, this is where it should have passed, as well as DownState.
Thanks for the ping!
[[by more than 1,000 plaintiffs ]]
That’s it? ONLY 1000 people signed onto this? That’s all the p eopel that the NRA could come up with to sign onto this lawsuit?
This “too quickly” business ain’t gonna fly. This law has to be defeated on the grounds that it infringes on the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms, and that it violates the 14th amendment by allowing police to carry more than 7 rounds while denying citizens the same right.
[[This too quickly business aint gonna fly. This law has to be defeated on the grounds that it infringes on the rights of Americans to keep and bear arms, ]]
Exactly! All thesde little compromises and suits that don’t address the main topic do nothign but hurt America’s cause by not gettign to the root cause of the issue- the state’s attempts to trample our constitutional rights-
Just another example of why we should be closing down cities. They are where all the “citizen crap” resides. Go Under Detroit, Chicago, NYC and Los Angeles.
And the irony is, it’s brought to you by a Jew! (Or at least someone who claims to be Jewish). Must be from the Georgi Schwartz (nee George Soros) wing of “Judiaism.”
