I haven’t seen similar celebrations like these post NYSRPA v. Bruen rejoicings since the Ewoks tore up Endor, playing glockenspiels made of stormtrooper helmets, and danced around the un-environmentally friendly mostly plastic and electronics fueled funeral pyre. It did not take long for the jubilation to end for many of the oppressed, finding that they’re back in the bondage of so-called “gun control”. The assaults on liberties not only persisted, in many ways they were exacerbated by the high court telling New York “not in my house”, with the Empire State doubling and tripling down. Honestly, New York politicians, and the un-elected Governor who took over since disgraced Governor Nipple Rings resigned, are all disgusting. “Okay google…define filth.”
The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) has a message for New York, et.al. on the antics that are occuring. There’s nothing in their message to make anyone find what they say to be idle; they put their moolah where their pie hole is.
Firearms Policy Coalition issued the following statement in response to reports of multiple carry permit issuing authorities across the country refusing to comply with the Supreme Court’s opinion in NYSRPA v. Bruen, which held that the Second and Fourteenth Amendments protect the right to carry firearms in public:
Quoting the plurality opinion from McDonald v. Chicago, the Supreme Court held in Bruen that “[t]he constitutional right to bear arms in public for self-defense is not ‘a second-class right, subject to an entirely different body of rules than the other Bill of Rights guarantees.’”
To those authorities that process or issue permits to carry concealed weapons that are abrogating the People’s right to carry: Obstructing the People’s fundamental right to an effective self-defense is not an option.
It doesn’t matter if you disagree with the recent United States Supreme Court opinion. It doesn’t matter if there are a lot of applicants. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel like spending time processing them. You are required to objectively process a carry permit application submitted to you without burdensome fees, delays, flaming hoops, and other games. The deluge of applications you’re now experiencing could have been avoided if you simply respected the People’s right to bear arms from the start and not treated it as a second class right.
FPC refuses to stand idly by while the issuing authorities—who are often law enforcement agencies—delay and deny the People’s right to the peaceable conduct they are entitled to. Your agencies must know that FPC will utilize every available instrument to remedy this ongoing and historic wrong.
The letter, which in my opinion should be downloadable as a PDF on FPC letterhead, with someone’s signature in blue ink on it, to allow applicants to print and include with their permit to carry applications in any hostile territory (just a note to ya FPC). Regardless of the lack of a fancy download, this message can be printed off their site directly and sent to issuing authorities who might need a reminder of what they may attempt to do (or are doing) is unconstitutional. A print out of the list of FPC’s litigation could also be a friendly reminder that FPC means business.
The Firearms Policy Coalition is one of several groups that have been and continue to challenge the assaults we suffer from the anti-freedom caucus. This succinct open missive to the gun-ban lobby should spark a small amount of reflection in decision makers, at a minimum get them thinking that they’re actually subject to personal liability when usurping civil rights of the people.
Will this work in all cases? Absolutely not. If I’ve learned something in this game about the gun-grabbers, we’re dealing with some of the most hubris and pompous power hungry political elites in the United States, and they want a disarmed population. The progressive anti-freedom caucus loathes freedom, and maybe they’ll wise up if a few judges or politicians end up being found guilty of malfeasance or civil rights violations. Bring on the litigation I say! They’ve all been warned.
