New York goes back to court over concealed carry restrictions passed after SCOTUS defeat
(Worthy News) – A gun rights organization is suing New York over tight restrictions the state imposed on concealed carry permit holders after the Supreme Court in late June struck down state provisions restricting the issuance of such licenses.
Gun Owners of America, a guns owner’s advocacy group has filed suit against the Concealed Carry Improvement Act which will take effect on Sept. 1, according to the Epoch Times.
The CCIA imposed tight restrictions on the concealed carry of firearms by lawful permitting holders, barring gun possession in “sensitive locations” such as government offices, healthcare facilities, schools, public transportation, restaurants, churches, camps, and a bevy of other venues. The state also will require applicants to submit character references, spousal contact information, periodic background checks, and their social media history. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
