With the Supreme Court’s wrongheaded ruling on carrying guns outside the home, all persons in New York are less safe and in the bulls-eye. In the wake of this decision, the ability of states to regulate their own sensible gun policies has been sacrificed to the grossly misunderstood Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution amid cheers from gun manufacturers and sellers.
Clearly there is a deep divide with regard to gun laws in this country. There are those who will never yield their “right” to own a gun and their belief that the Constitution sanctions that right for virtually everyone. To try to convince a Wyoming cowboy or Texas ranch owner to the contrary is futile.
