    NY: NYC slightly loosens gun restrictions to forestall SCOTUS case

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/04/12/n...rearms-scotus/

    New York City decided to change a portion of its gun laws related to the transport of firearms just a few months after the Supreme Court decided to review a lawsuit scrutinizing the city’s gun control laws.

    Licensed gun owners in New York City will soon be able to legally transport their firearm to a second home, business or any other place gun possession is permitted as a result of a rules change the NYPD announced Friday, The New York Daily News reported.
    Current rule is NYC residents can take their gun only to the range and back or to hunting area and back. Cannot legally transport it to second home or place of business.

    To clarify even further gun owners can't transport guns to just any range, but one of six in the city and it must be verified and approved by NYPD in advance. Gun owners can't just say, "I think I'm going to go to the range today." If they haven't jumped through all of hoops ahead of time they are out of luck. And the process to get approved just to go to the range can take months and cost hundreds of dollars.

    Why is NYC/NYPD changing the rules now? Don't they care about the children, etc.?

    If it was a good law and worth fighting up to the SCOTUS they should stand their ground...

    Maybe they want you to take your guns to the obstetrics dept of your local hospital to shoot newborns. Then when the stupid idea of killing babies bites them on the ass they can always claim it was "lead poisoning"...

    NYC is afraid SCOTUS will kill all of their unconstitutional gun laws.

    Although the below ruling has to do with charging fees or taxes to enjoy a right, how is it that a "right" can be so curtailed as it is today in NY? How do the people allow their rights to become so erroded that the "right" is simply gone.

    The slippery slope of nullifying a right seems to always start with fees and taxes, but more and more often ends the way of NYC.

    Murdock v. Pennsylvania (1943)

    "The power to tax the exercise of a privilege is the power to control or suppress its enjoyment"

    "A state may not impose a charge for the enjoyment of a right granted by the federal constitution. Thus, it may not exact a license tax for the privilege of carrying on interstate commerce"

    "The power to impose a license tax on the exercise of these freedoms is indeed as potent as the power of censorship which this Court has repeatedly struck down"

    "The state cannot and does not have the power to license, nor tax, a Right guaranteed to the people"
    "Si vis pacem, para bellum"
