Upholding the Sullivan Law

Miguel takes a look at exactly what the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld. Yes, judges Katzmann, Wesley, and Lynch (Clinton, Bush Jr., and Obama, respectively), this is the racist claptrap, that sacred “one-hundred-year-old law” that you tacitly endorsed when you declined to “call into question the state’s traditional authority to extensively regulate handgun possession in public.” You know, slavery and Jim Crow were a tradition in many parts of the country until relatively recently too. Time don’t make right.

    It is worth noting that newspaper stories are the only record of the Sullivan Act left. The original bill, vote sheet, memorandum, etc. are not available.

    Also it’s not just in public. As in NY State (and city) to merely *own* a handgun requires a permit.

    And while the state may grace you with a “house and range” permit it is still a selective process.

    NJ last I knew was the same for handguns, you had to have a permit for each handgun, rifles (and bb guns) “only” needed you have a firearms ID card to buy.
