Gun Owners Prepare as Courts Prepare for Australian Style Gun Ban

On Monday, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision on the New York SAFE Act. According to the Court, virtually all of the law, which clearly infringes on the rights of the people to keep and bear arms does not violate the Second Amendment, which clearly it does. This ruling comes just days after both Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton have pushed for Australian-style gun bans and even putting forth repeal of the Second Amendment.

The Times Union reports:

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has upheld the constitutionality of the SAFE Act gun control law in a decision that came to the same conclusion about a Connecticut law that, like New York’s measure, was passed in response to the December 2012 killings in Newtown, Conn.

In a decision released Monday, a three-judge panel concluded that the “core provisions” of the expanded ban on assault weapons in both states “do not violate the Second Amendment” because they are “substantially related to the achievement of an important governmental interest” — in this case public safety and crime reduction — and are therefore subject to intermediate and not strict court scrutiny.
