NY Gov Kathy Hochul Implodes as SCOTUS Strikes Down Her Unconstitutional Gun Restriction

New York Democrat Governor Kathy Hochul is melting down after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that her gun restrictions in the state are unconstitutional.

The SCOTUS just ruled that individuals have the right to carry a gun outside the home under the Second Amendment of the Constitution.

In the court’s opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote that Americans’ rights to carry guns for self-defense, inside or outside their home, are protected by 2A.

This decision struck down New York state’s law, which required a special permit to carry a concealed handgun in public.

Gov. Hochul is furious over the court’s decision.

“It is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons,” Hochul tweeted once the decision of the Supreme Court was released.

Hochul has been an outspoken supporter of gun control.

At the beginning of June, Hochul actually signed into law more gun restrictive laws, the New York Post reported.

Her move came just after the mass shootings in Buffalo, New York, and Uvalde, Texas.

“I speak to you today as the governor of a state in mourning and the citizen of a nation in crisis,” Hochul said before she signed into law 10 bills passed by state lawmakers in the aftermath of the mass shootings.

“It just keeps happening.

“Shots ring out. Flags come down, and nothing ever changes — except here in New York.”

But now, the Supreme Court has ruled against one of New York’s most fundamental laws for carrying firearms.

The court’s decision was based on historical precedents and the text of the Second Amendment.

“We reiterate that the standard for applying the Second Amendment is as follows: When the Second Amendment’s plain text covers an individual’s conduct, the Constitution presumptively protects that conduct,” Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in the court opinion.

“The government must then justify its regulation by demonstrating that it is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.”

The court ruled 6 to 3 in favor of striking down the New York carry law.

But Hochul has already said that she is ready to respond to this ruling.

She said on Twitter that she will do “everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe from gun violence.”

In response to Hochul’s outrage over the court’s ruling, however, many on Twitter pushed back.

Another user tweeted, “Get over yourself, you can’t dictate how we choose to defend ourselves.”

Many have called out New York’s law as unconstitutional and applauded the court’s ruling as setting things straight under constitutional law and history.
