The U.S. Supreme Court has proven that the Second Amendment absolutists (absurdists) who argue there can be no laws regulating guns are wrong, yet again. The Court today declined to hear a challenge to a strict New York law that makes it
difficult for residents to get a license to carry a concealed handgun in
public. Oh, gnashing of teeeth and wailing among the gun worshipers and fetisihists!
Supreme Court leaves in place strict N.Y. limit on carrying concealed firearms:
The justices on Monday declined to hear a challenge to a strict New York
law that makes it difficult for residents to get a license to carry a
concealed handgun in public.
The court did not comment in turning away an appeal from five state
residents and the Second Amendment Foundation. Their lawsuit also drew
support from the National Rifle Association and 20 states.
The U.S. Supreme Court has made clear in its Second Amendment cases that government regulation of firearms is permissible. There is no support in law for the absolutist (absurdist) position.
