Licensed gun owners in New York City do not face (full text) an undue Second Amendment burden imposed by regulations that ban traveling with a gun to firing ranges and homes outside of the city, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled Friday.
The panel of Circuit Judges Rosemary Pooler, Gerard Lynch and Susan Carney affirmed the previous order granting summary judgment in favor of the New York City Police Department issued by U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet of the Southern District of New York.
State law requires firearm owners to obtain locally issued firearm licenses. In New York City, the police department issues those licenses, which come with restrictions. Absent a special carry license, individuals are not allowed to transport their weapons out of the gun range where they’re registered to practice.
