Defending New York’s Concealed Carry Improvement Act.
Court: Northern District of New York
Issues at Stake: Public carry; Licensing/registration; Sensitive places
Summary:Antonyuk v. Bruen is a challenge to New York’s Concealed Carry Improvement Act (“CCIA”). The CCIA strengthens New York’s permitting requirements in the wake of NewYork State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n v. Bruen and identifies sensitive places where firearms are prohibited.
Everytown filed an amicus brief in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York in defense of the CCIA. The brief argues that the regulations are constitutional under the approach to Second Amendment cases set out in Bruen. It explains that plaintiffs have not met their burden to establish that the Second Amendment’s plain text covers their conduct. The brief further argues that the relevant focus for historical inquiry is the second half of the 19th century and later periods. Firearms regulations during these periods demonstrate the constitutionality of New York’s law.
District Court Decision: On August 31, 2022, the district court denied the plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction for lack of subject-matter jurisdiction/standing.
