Gov. Kathy Hochul Outraged that SCOTUS Ruled Against NY Gun Laws

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) responded to the Supreme Court of the United States’ (SCOTUS) pro-2nd Amendment ruling by stressing, “We’re not going to cede our rights that easily.”

Hochul tweeted: “It is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons.”

She made clear she is considering “special session of the legislature” to find ways to weigh possible legislative responses.

Hochul noted, “Just as we swiftly passed nation-leading gun reform legislation, I will continue to do everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe from gun violence.”

The book you need when help is not on the way!

She posted a video in which she pledged, “We’re not going to cede our rights that easily.” She did not clarify to whom she was referring when she said “our” rights:

Breitbart News reported that the Supreme Court struck down New York’s proper cause requirement for concealed carry on Thursday.

Justice Thomas wrote, “We too agree, and now hold, consistent with Heller and McDonald, that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect an individual’s right to carry a handgun for self-defense outside the home.”
