The Upcoming Supreme Court Case That Could Turn the Tide for Gun Rights

If you haven’t heard about the upcoming Supreme Court case that could put the kibosh on the anti-gun movement, it’s not your fault- because the last thing the MSM wants to do is tell you about it.

In January, the Supreme Court refused to hear NY State Rifle and Pistol Association v. The City of New York.

This is a case that was brought about in part as a response to New York City’s unreasonable hostility to those who apply for handgun and concealed carry permits. It’s an issue that many New Yorkers have run afoul of.

Consumer advocate and journalist John Stossel once did an expose in which he attempted to obtain a concealed carry permit in New York City.

For his trouble, he ended up waiting almost a year, being run through hoops and had to pay hundreds of dollars in fees. In the end, he was denied.

So if a well known and respectable television personality cannot get a concealed carry permit in New York, what chance does the average person have?

To make things worse, even New York residents who do successfully obtain a permit to own a firearm are restricted by a regulation that forbids them from taking their guns out of the New York city limits.

There are no provisions of ‘reasonableness’ allowing permit holders to take their guns to shooting competitions, hunting expositions, or ranges outside the city.

Legal owners of firearms in New York are only permitted to keep their guns inside their homes and to use them at firing ranges inside the city.

In an op-ed published on March 28 in the New York Daily News, the Director of One Pulse for America Ladd Everitt called for the city to repeal its handgun transport restrictions. This is a man who has referred to legal gun ownership advocates as “insurrectionists.” He writes;

“A ruling in NYSRPA vs. NYC could overturn not only the city’s gun transport reg, but also “may-issue” laws governing concealed carry of firearms in public in New York and seven other states. … It is within the authority of NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill to revise or repeal the regulation at the center of NYSRPA vs. NYC.

If he took this step (conceivably with the blessing of Mayor de Blasio) and cleared the way for premises licensees to transport secured firearms to locations outside the city, the plaintiffs’ stated grievance would be remedied. The Supreme Court might decide to drop the case before ruling on it.”

It might sound at first as if Everitt, a staunch gun control advocate, has had a change of heart. The truth is that he is attempting to convey a subtle legal strategy to those with the power to take his advice. Everitt has realized that if the city repeals the law, it is unlikely to go to the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court, as you can imagine, is extraordinarily busy. They have to be extremely discriminating in the cases they choose to hear since they are the only such court in the nation.

So, Everitt’s suggested strategy would allow the city to avoid a Supreme Court ruling that would forever forbid them from imposing this ridiculous restriction on legal, permit-holding gun owners.

In other words, if NYC voluntarily repeals the law, they can re-implement it later. But if the Supreme Court rules against the transport statute- that’s it- gun owners can move their weapons as they so choose.

In other words, Ladd Everitt is a jackass.

He continues;

“It’s true that allowing New York City residents to transport guns outside the city would entail certain public safety risks, even if the practice was regulated. But with the gun violence epidemic increasing in the United States, our communities simply cannot withstand newfound constitutional protections for violent “good guys with a gun.” Now is the time for the NYPD to step up and protect all Americans by repealing NYC’s gun transport ordinance.”

What we are seeing here is a blatant case of suggested political maneuvering in the cause of violating our natural and God-given right to defend ourselves, our families, and our neighbors.

Everitt believes that there is no such thing as a “good guy with a gun.” In our experience, people with attitudes like that are the ones who cannot be trusted with guns.

They are the ones who perceive them as tools of bloody violence, rather than just tools. They believe that the darkness that lives in their hearts lives in yours as well, and they’re ready to legislate based on that sub-human premise.
