    NY Governor Melts Down After Seeing What the Supreme Court Just Did

    Published on

    The Supreme Court has recently determined that the Second Amendment permits persons to carry firearms outside the home. This ruling invalidated the New York state statute requiring a special permission to conceal carry a pistol in public.

    Kathy Hochul, the governor of New York, is enraged by the court’s decision.

    Hochul tweeted in response to the Supreme Court’s decision, “It is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons.”

    It is terrible that in the midst of a national crisis on gun violence, the Supreme Court has carelessly overturned a New York statute that restricts concealed carry.

    Hochul has been a vocal advocate for gun regulation.

    The New York Post said that Hochul signed more restrictive gun legislation into effect at the beginning of June, right after the mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas.

    “I speak to you today as the governor of a state in mourning and the citizen of a nation in crisis … It just keeps happening. Shots ring out. Flags come down, and nothing ever changes — except here in New York,” Hochul said before signing 10 laws proposed by state legislators in response to the mass killings into law.

    But now, the Supreme Court has ruled against one of New York’s most fundamental laws for carrying firearms.

    The court’s decision was based on historical precedents and the text of the Second Amendment.

    “We reiterate that the standard for applying the Second Amendment is as follows: When the Second Amendment’s plain text covers an individual’s conduct, the Constitution presumptively protects that conduct. The government must then justify its regulation by demonstrating that it is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the court opinion.
