New York is rather low on the list of gun-friendly states, and New York City is even harsher on Second Amendment Rights. In fact, New York is one of the only states that allows counties and cities to have differing gun laws. Legally licensed handgun owners in the city are only allowed to transport their firearms directly to and from the shooting range. During this time, they must remain locked, unloaded, and away from your person, with the ammunition separate.
In addition, it is extremely difficult for handgun owners on Long Island to transport their guns upstate and out of state. The same, of course, is true for travel in the opposite direction. Traveling through NYC is the only accessible land route to and from Long Island, which has slightly more lenient gun laws. (Emphasis on slightly). New York State Law outlaws the transportation of any loaded firearms out of compliance with specific carry provisions. For example, these provisions may allow someone to take a gun to a range or one’s place of business. Carry licenses from other counties of New York do not allow carry in the five boroughs of New York City.

You mean Fudds. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------The effort comes as gun sales are down, and the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to take up a gun rights case for the first time in nine years.
Colorado Gun Owners for Safety is made up of sport shooters, gun collectors and hunters like Mike Heyka. “We’re not gun grabbers nor do we believe in arming everyone with guns is the answer. We are the moderate middle". They say they were moved to action by shootings like that of Giffords, who told them, “Now is the time to come together, be responsible.” Giffords’ husband, Mark Kelly, is also a gun owner. “Strong second amendment rights I believe go hand in hand with stronger gun laws,” he said.
The new group will help push for gun control at the State Capitol.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday took up its biggest gun rights case in nearly a decade, agreeing to hear a challenge backed by the influential National Rifle Association lobby group to New York City’s strict limits on handgun owners transporting their firearms outside of the home.

The nine justices will review a 2018 lower court ruling upholding the city’s restrictions after three gun owners and the NRA’s New York state affiliate sued claiming the regulations imposed in the largest American city violated the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment right to “keep and bear arms.” The decision indicates a new interest regarding gun rights on the court, where conservatives hold a 5-4 majority. The Supreme Court had not taken up a major firearms case since issuing important rulings in 2008 and 2010 that established an individual right to own guns for self-defense inside the home.

PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) – Controversy is escalating over proposed gun control legislation for the City of Pittsburgh.
Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala recently wrote city council saying they don’t have the authority to pass a gun law and could put themselves at legal risk by doing so.
Asked about that letter today, Mayor Bill Peduto Shot back, “Arrest me. You know what; I welcome him trying to put up a lawsuit that would arrest me if I sign this legislation. I would welcome that.” Peduto said meaningful change from local officials challenging the justice of laws and as for Zappala saying that city council could put themselves in legal jeopardy. “Anybody who would threaten a legislature of any body, city council, state rep, Congress member that would will be arrested if you don’t vote a certain way, what country do we live in?” Continued⬇⬇

And not one person at the show has give a damn. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------The largest annual trade show for shooting, hunting and outdoor show in the world is not immune to the partial government shutdown’s effects.
Two scheduled educational sessions involving the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms at the Shooting, Hunting & Outdoor Trade Show at the Sands Expo and Convention Center were canceled due to the agents being furloughed. “The cancelled sessions were replaced with sessions on other topics,” said spolesperson Bill Brassard with the National Shooting Sports Foundation, which sponsors the show. “These and other seminars are attended by firearms retailers, who were basically unaffected because they continued to have a full seminar schedule to choose from.” The ATF is responsible for regulating the firearm industry in the U.S. through licensing. The agencies duties also include the investigation and prevention of federal offenses involving the unlawful use, manufacture and possession of firearms and explosives, according to the ATF website.

William Barr’s nomination for attorney general is very troubling for gun owners.
Even the most liberal, anti-gun justice on the Supreme Court — Ruth Bader Ginsburg — didn’t sit in the witness chair in the Senate Judiciary Committee and tell us she intended to shred the Second Amendment.
Yet that is what Barr did this week when he told senators he supported gun confiscation orders.
Of course, he led off with much milder rhetoric, telling Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) that “there’s room for reasonable regulation” on firearms laws — exactly the same lingo that Michael Bloomberg or Chuck Schumer would use. So much for the “shall not be infringed” protections in the Second Amendment!
But now it has become clear: Barr’s history as a gun control supporter goes back a long way.
Consider that in 1991 — in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee — he endorsed semi-auto bans, magazine bans, background checks and more. Said Barr:
On the assault weapon front, the proposal before us is the DeConcini amendment. And I think … I would support both the Brady Bill waiting period and the DeConcini amendment [semi-auto ban], provided that they were parts of a broader and more comprehensive crime bill that included … very tough provisions on the use of firearms in crimes and illegal purchase and trading in firearms.
