When an anti-gun government entity knows they are going to lose a case and tries to manipulate the Court by quickly changing the offending law, you know you're going to win, PERIOD.  So, you can pretty well predict that the Court will rule against the anti-gun government and the offending law OR the Court will declare the case moot.  Either way it's a win for gun owners.  Read on.... 

BREAKING: Divided SCOTUS Moots NYC Gun Case

A divided Supreme Court declared on Monday that a Second Amendment challenge to a New York City gun law was made moot by the city and state’s last minute move to change the law in question. The 6-3 ruling saw Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh siding with the liberal wing of the court, while Justices Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, and Neil Gorsuch dissented from the opinion, arguing that the decision “permits our docket to be manipulated in a way that should not be countenanced.” 

In an unsigned opinion, the majority opinion declared that once New York City had changed its law forbidding the transportation of legally owned pistols to any place other than a range in the city, the plaintiffs in essence won their case.

After we granted certiorari, the State of New York amended its firearm licensing statute, and the City amended the rule so that petitioners may now transport firearms to a second home or shooting range outside of the city, which is the precise relief that petitioners requested in the prayer for relief in their complaint. Petitioners’ claim for declaratory and injunctive relief with respect to the City’s old rule is therefore moot.

The executive director of National Rifle Association's Institute for Legislative Action released the following statement Monday regarding the Supreme Court's opinion in NYSRPA v. The City of New York.

“Now that the Supreme Court has accepted New York’s surrender, perhaps the city will finally repay all legal fees incurred by their deceit. Because this lawsuit was necessary to force the government’s admission of wrongdoing and retreat, the NRA will continue these battles across America. The justices’ concerns about Second Amendment infringements are real, and our membership is excited to have their rights formally vindicated before the nation’s highest court.” -- Jason Ouimet, executive director, NRA-ILA.
