For New York Gun Haters, A “Good Reason” For Fear

posted on May 22, 2015

With the recent success of the lawsuit against the District of Columbia’s “good reason” requirement for gun-permit applicants, other anti-gun municipalities are feeling the heat. New York currently has a similar standard for issuing permits. You must identify a credible threat, because apparently they don’t consider, “It’s my Second Amendment right,” to be good enough. But such standards are now at increased risk of being declared unconstitutional by a higher court using the D.C. ruling as precedent.

New York looks like the state to watch for the foreseeable future. Could the beating heart of the anti-gun movement soon become a “shall-issue” state? We might find out soon.
