    I don't know if this has been posted before .
    BATON ROUGE, LA – With federal court decisions impacting Louisiana people, regardless of where the lawsuits originate, Attorney General Jeff Landry is leading a 17-state coalition against a New York City gun restriction which threatens Second Amendment protections.

    In an amicus brief filed today, General Landry’s coalition asks the United States Supreme Court to consider the permitting scheme’s burden on Second Amendment rights, the full extent of those rights, and the applicability of those rights to self-defense outside the home.

    “The restrictive policies memorialized in New York City’s ‘premises permit’ scheme unduly burdens the Second Amendment rights held by all Americans,” said General Landry. “Criminalizing travel with a securely stored firearm creates an imbalance in our federal system that weighs against lawful exercise of the Second Amendment inside and outside of New York City.”

    The terms of New York City’s pricey permit prohibit removing any firearm from the home with two exceptions, practicing at a range in the city or hunting in the state - and hunting requires authorization from the city’s police department. To remove a firearm from the home for any other purpose requires a separate, yet similarly expensive “carry” permit that is very difficult to obtain.

    In their legal brief, General Landry and his counterparts argue that New York City did not show sufficient cause to burden citizens’ gun rights in their pursuit of crime prevention and public safety, both of which are frustrated by restricting licensed and trained gun owners from carrying outside their homes. This restriction has the practical implication of leaving thousands of firearms in unoccupied homes, where they are of no use to their lawful owners when faced with dangerous situations.

    “The need for self-defense is not limited to the home and the right to possess a firearm should not be either,”

    Lets hope this is the first trickle of the tidal wave of legal actions that have been on hold waiting for a favorable Supreme Court.

    Louisiana Joins Fight Against NYC's Draconian Gun Laws

    Louisiana Joins Fight Against NYC’s Draconian Gun Laws
    There’s nowhere in the country where it’s more difficult to own a gun that New York City. If you have one, you can’t really take it much of anywhere, and that doesn’t even touch on getting a carry permit. In short, the law-abiding citizens of New York are screwed if they want to own a gun in the Big Apple.

    But there’s a lawsuit underway to try and change that, a case that may become the biggest gun rights case since Heller, and the state of Louisiana has just joined the fight.
    The 16 states joining Louisiana in the brief are Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, and Wisconsin through their Attorney Generals and Mississippi and Kentucky through their Governors. The case is New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. et al. v. City of New York et al.

    All good but not until RBG is dead and replaced by a conservative can we hope for results.

    Is there any way to get this professionally painted and framed so I can hang it on my wall?
    Not even necessarily for his alleged pro gun stances, but simply for his love of beer, which I identify with? :rock: :beer:

    Check Starbucks. You'll probably find an under-employed art major who can hook you up.

    kavanaugh is a disciple of Kenndy, Kennedy tended to take the middle of the road/tiebreaker approach. I wouldn't get to excited just yet that Kavanaugh is on the bench

    I couldn't agree more. However, if the DemocRATS win the mid-term and one other justice dies or retires, that seat will remain vacant until 2024.

    That reinforces the necessity for all of us to vote and to get others to join us.

    Just wait til Gorsuch is on the SC
    Just wait til Kavanaugh is on the SC
    Just wait til RBG is replaced
    Just wait
    Just wait
    Just wait


    FUCK WAITING!

    Why the HELL aren't the Repubs doing something about this? They're controlling all three branches of the Federal .gov, they could be doing something to reinforce the Rights we are LOSING here in NY.

    It is a long shot for them to take the Senate. If they take the House it will have zero impact on appointments. Unfortunately everything else will stall out

    Let's get the ball rolling. This is as good of a place to start as any.

    I do not want to see this stall out. I hope it gets seen all the way through and results in significant change for NYC and NY state.

    MAGA!!
    (and Thank you to those freedom loving states in the suit for having our backs)

    Watch. The NRA will gladly dump money into getting even better rights for southerners while still abandoning us.

    I don't know what I can do other than somehow send them words of support, strong words. I know I am already supporting their adversary involuntarily, through the onerous tax burden levied on me by the socialist bastards that run what used to be The Empire State and funneled down to that rat hole..

    Louisiana Is Now Involved In What Could Be A Landmark Gun Rights Case At The Supreme Court
    Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry announced Tuesday that the state will be joining 16 others in submitting an amicus brief in the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. City of New York case, meaning that Louisiana is going to play a role in what’s expected to be the most significant 2nd Amendment case since the Heller decision.

    New York City’s regulation not only offends the Second Amendment and other constitutional protections, but it also poses a serious economic burden. “New York’s regulatory scheme discriminates against interstate commerce because it ‘deprives out-of-state businesses of access to a local market’ by forbidding its citizens from hunting and patronizing ranges outside the State with their own guns,” wrote General Landry and the others.

    Because its all a banana republic, has been for years. The only thing these people care about it making money and laws that support them making money.

    IF interstate commerce is the reason why we get some gun rights back .. so be it ... Does anyone think if we win it could be the end of the Sullivan act ?

    And I plain don't care. ANYTHING, ANYWHERE that weakens the communist stranglehold on our rights is to be applauded, supported, and exploited.
