New York City's Overreach: Federal Judge Strikes Down 'Unconstitutional' Gun Restrictions

In a crucial victory for the Second Amendment and civil liberties, a federal judge on Tuesday ruled that New York City’s gun restrictions violated both the Second and 14th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.

Joseph Srour applied for a permit to possess rifles and shotguns in his home in 2018, followed by an application for a handgun license for home possession in 2019. Both applications were denied due to past arrests, a poor driving record, and allegedly making false statements, according to the court documents.

Judge John P. Cronan, in a 48-page ruling, specifically criticized the city for allowing broad discretion to local officials in denying gun permits. This is an important development in the fight for gun rights and could have nationwide implications.
