Second Amendment Defeat in NY
Judge upholds gun and mag bans.
Buffalo Federal District Court Judge William Skretny upheld New York’s anti-gun “SAFE” Act – the post-Sandy Hook bill that banned standard-capacity magazines as well as semi-automatic rifles that look scary. Skretny said the law is just fine because it serves to “further the state’s important interest in public safety.” Unbelievably, he also wrote that gun control “is not a judicial question; it is a political one.” Wrong. It’s a question of Rule of Law – either the Constitution means what it says or politicians can do whatever they please. The case is no doubt headed to the Second Circuit, where we hope constitutional sanity prevails.
