Gun control laws have always been about racism.
New York – -(AmmoLand.com)- Following the Supreme Court’s strong rebuke of New York State’s discriminatory “proper cause” requirement to obtain a concealed-carry permit, legislators in Albany doubled down and enacted new, more invasive methods to dissuade law-abiding citizens who just want to carry a weapon to defend themselves.
In response, Gun Owners of America and our sister organization, Gun Owners Foundation. filed a lawsuit on behalf of a local resident – and you’ll never guess what historic laws the State has now cited in Court as a defense.
In response to our lawsuit, New York argued their new subjective “good moral character” requirement was “consistent with the long history in both England and America” because two colonial laws in 1756 and 1763 ordered the “disarmament of all Catholics or ‘reputed Papists,’” and forbade “the sale and trading of arms to indigenous people.”
