Posted on 10/06/2022 2:02:06 PM PDT by matt04
On Thursday U.S. District Judge Glenn T. Suddaby issued a temporary restraining order against portions of New York’s newest gun controls, including the requirement that concealed carry permit applicants have their social media scoured.
The decision centered on the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA), which New York Democrats passed and Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) signed in response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ NYSRPA v. Bruen ruling (2022).
Judge Suddaby issued a temporary restraining order against the character test, ruling against:
. . . the provisions contained in Section 1 of the CCIA requiring “good moral character” EXCEPT to the extent it is construed to mean that a license shall be issued or renewed except for an applicant who has been found, by a preponderance of the evidence based on his or her conduct, to not have “good moral character,” which is defined as “having the essential character, temperament and judgment necessary . . . to use [the weapon entrusted to the applicant] only in a manner that does not endanger oneself or others, other than in self-defense.
His temporary restraining order also halts the requirement that a concealed carry permit holder “meet in person with the licensing officer for an interview” and the requirement that applicants hand over “a list of former and current social media accounts of the applicant from the past three years.”
Numerous other aspects of the CCIA were temporarily restrained as well.

What part of “shall not be infringed” do these idiots not get?
It’s obvious the hateful Marxist Nazis were circumventing the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
These people are broken inside. Dead and broken.
Over at DU:
“Any civil lawsuits against gun owners because they have more rights than the rest of us?
Pretty sick of planning my escape routes in public places and fearing for my loved ones’ lives.”
No, we do not have more rights that you. It’s just that you’re not exercising your 2nd amendment right. It’s sitting there right in front of you to use. You choose not to. That’s on you.
these commies want to force everybody into an utterly defenseless (and thus, dependent) status
its all about their lust for extreme power
>> applicants have their social media scoured
at first, thought that was a typo — “scored”
Such idiotic Rats have no problems with gang-bangers, robbers, rapists, & murderers
IIRC under the new law it’s a felony to carry on, say the NYC subway, but if someone beats and robs you, they will probably be out whiting a hour with no bail, assuming they are caught.
Guys, this is good news. There will be more lawsuits and I’m guessing the SCOTUS will make a ruling, or rulings. But for now, the good guys win one!
Hochul loses it in 3, 2, 1
Exactly. They passed this law as revenge for people daring sue them for restricting their constitutional rights and were angry the courts sided with the people.
Yep, and I posted before that D.C. tried to get around the Heller ruling for a few years, and kept getting beat over the head by the courts and had to give up. Same thing will happen in NY.
HochuL Fought the Law and the Law Won!
three hours prior - Schuyler County Joins Others Calling for Repeal of “Unconstitutional” New State Gun Laws
If democRats weren't keep letting maniacs run loose while preventing law abiding folks the means to defend themselves, you wouldn't need to live in fear.
A Notice of Appeal has already been filed.
They just can’t help being tyrants.
The NY law will never be found to be constitutional. It’s only a question of whether the circuit court will do it,or leave it to the supremes.
But the real question is whether the Supremes will take one hour now to slap down the circuit court's stay of the TRO, telling all of the lower courts that they are serious, or if they will do the "business as usual" thing, leaving people on both coasts subject to 20 more years of right infringements.
Wow. “Good moral character” sure is specific. I think it’s a requirement for law students seeking admission to the Bar, too. See how well it works.
