Judge blocks New York’s ban on carrying guns in places of worship

(Worthy News) – A federal judge has halted New York officials from enforcing the state’s ban on carrying firearms in places of worship.

“The State’s exclusion is, instead, inconsistent with the Nation’s historical traditions, impermissibly infringing on the right to keep and bear arms in public for self-defense,” the judge wrote in his order issuing an injunction. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
