New York CCW Law Faces Legal Challenge

By Tom Knighton. February 6th, 2018

The Second Amendment clearly states that the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. However, that simple phrasing has created so much debate for some reason. Over and over again, lawmakers create laws that clearly infringe on the right to keep and bear arms. Perhaps few do so as egregiously as "may issue" permitting laws.

Requiring people to get a permit simply to exercise a constitutionally protected right is bad enough, but "may issue" laws take that process and make it more onerous by adding the requirement that someone has to justify wanting a permit in order to be granted permission.

Now, New York's "may issue" provision is facing a legal challenge by someone who was turned down for a carry permit. .......

Apart from permit requirements infringing on Second Amendment rights, those states that insist on maintaining "may issue" invariably seem to do everything possible to deny permits. The reason for denial is often simply stating that the applicant does not have sufficient 'good reason' - which is ridiculous when 'good reason' is simply the wish to excercise rights and have a means of self defense at all times. It would appear that people who have high office, enjoy fame and are wealthy may often get preferential treatment compared with a regular Joe.
