Defending New York’s “good cause” public-carry regime.
Court: Northern District of New York
Issue at Stake: Public carry
Summary: Everytown filed this amicus brief in the United States District Court for the Northern District of New York in defense of New York’s “good cause” licensing regime. Everytown’s brief explains that New York’s requirement that an applicant have “good cause” to obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon in public is consistent with centuries of Anglo-American tradition and therefore constitutional under the Second Amendment.
Decision: The district court rejected the Second Amendment challenge based on existing precedent in Kachalsky v. County of Westchester. The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit affirmed. The United States Supreme Court has granted certiorari and will review the Second Circuit’s decision.
