NY Gun Banners Get Spanked on Signs, Social Media



You gun banners don’t come here for the hunting, do you?

Remember the massive toddler tantrum New York threw when the Supreme Court said they had to allow CCW?

Gun grabbers really are like small children, aren’t they? From the magical thinking that causes them to believe that criminals will obey gun laws, to the inability to model other people’s motivations, to the insensate rage that results when they don’t get what they want (and even when they do). If you’ve ever had a toddler scream for a toy, only to burst out in frantic, red-faced wails when you hand them the toy, then you know everything you need to know about anti-gunners. As far as they’re concerned, what’s going on in the appeals courts is that Mommy is being mean to them even though they cried and cried.

Bend over, New York. This hurts Mommy more than it hurts you! (Not really.)


A federal appeals court has struck down a New York state law requiring private property owners to post signs allowing concealed carry on property open to the public as part of a massive decision dealing with several separate challenges of the Empire State’s post-Bruen gun control legislation.

The Second Amendment Foundation was involved in two of the four cases decided by the court in its 261-page ruling. They are known as Hardaway v. Chiumento and Christian v. Chiumento. The cases were before the U.S. Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

The Christian case challenged the signage requirement. The court noted that the regulated conduct—carrying a firearm for personal protection on private property—“falls within the Second Amendment right to carry.” Thus, the requirement to post signs allowing carry on private property open to the public was struck down. The restriction carried with it a criminal penalty of up to four years imprisonment and was graded as a Class E felony – which would strip the individual of their right to keep and bear arms in perpetuity.

The Hardaway case challenged a tenet of the law prohibiting carry in places of worship. The complaint became moot when the legislature changed the law after SAF sued to allow people such as plaintiff Jimmie Hardaway to carry in his church. In both cases, SAF was joined by the Firearms Policy Coalition.

There was another major win for gun rights in the lengthy decision, in a case not involving SAF. The court struck down a requirement to allow government access to private social media accounts in order to apply for a carry license.

“Our challenges were narrowly constructed, allowing us to win a small but significant victory in the Christian case,” noted SAF Executive Director Adam Kraut. “Because the legislature changed the law after our lawsuit was filed in the Hardaway case, we consider that a victory as well.”

“These are just two more examples of SAF carrying out its mission to win firearms freedom, one lawsuit at a time,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb.
