168 House Republicans sign onto Rep. Tenney’s push for SCOTUS to reverse critical state gun law

Backed by 168 of her Republican colleagues in the House, Rep. Claudia Tenney (R-NY) is urging the United States Supreme Court to upend a statute in her home state that restricts who is permitted to carry concealed handguns outside the home, as Fox News reports.

The group of lawmakers led by Tenney announced on Thursday their plan to file an amicus brief in support of a challenge filed by the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association to the law, which prohibits the issuance of concealed-carry gun licenses unless an applicant can demonstrate “proper cause” for having such a permit and a “special need for self-protection distinguishable from that of the general community,” according to Syracuse.com.

As CBS News noted, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the appeal back on April 26, in what represents the first time in over ten years that the high court will rule on a case with significant Second Amendment implications and the first time it will do so since its current 6-3 conservative majority was solidfied.

Tenney has found significant support for her position among fellow House Republicans, explaining to Fox News, “Everybody is interested in it,” adding that the outcome in the case “would probably give some clarity on a national level as to the ability to restrict Second Amendment rights when it comes to concealed carry, particularly outside the home.”

The Congresswoman explained the problems she believes are inherent in New York’s restrictive regime, saying, “Everyone is basically issued a restricted carry permit,” and that she has sought an unrestricted permit in response to death threats she says she has personally received, but has found the process to be onerous to the point of not yet completing it herself.

“There are places in New York where [licensing rules are] really so limiting,” Tenney lamented, adding, “With more and more crime, you really can’t defend yourself.”

The group of Republicans expect to file their brief by the end of July, and a draft of its contents reviewed by Syracuse.com contends that the right of New Yorkers to carry concealed weapons for personal protection is guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution.

According those signing onto the brief, “For many years, New York has gotten away with barring all but a privileged few of its citizens from exercising their right to keep and bear arms outside the home, and this case presents a chance to right that Constitutional wrong.”

Tenney is joined in her stance by a powerful group of conservative legislators that includes top congressional Republicans such as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA), Minority Whip Steve Scalise (LA) and conference chair Rep. Elise Stefanik (NY). Oral arguments will take place in the fall in what is shaping up to be a critical moment for the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.

My last paycheck was $2500 for working 12 hours a week online. My sisters friend has been averaging 8k for months now and she works about 30 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out. The potential with this is endless.
