Supreme Court Holds the Sullivan Law Unconstitutional; New York Doubles Down

Last week the United States Supreme Court issued the long-anticipated decision in New York State Rifle and Pistol Association vs. Bruen. The decision is already being considered a landmark ruling. There are many articles online that explain the decision and, more importantly, how the lawsuit came to be. We will post links to some of the best writings below. If we can distill the ruling down to its essential holding, the Court held that the right to self defense applies outside the home as well as inside the home, and, further, the discretionary “may issue” permitting scheme set forth in New York Penal Law Section 400 was arbitrary.

Instead of taking the drubbing with grace, which California (!) did, New York has doubled down with the Democrat Party controlled State Assembly and State Senate passing an even more draconian scheme. The new law makes permits renewable every three years, designates nearly every public space a “sensitive area” where concealed carrying is prohibited, and requires permit […]

Thanks

The large “Widowmaker” limb at the outdoor range is down. If someone can come out, cut it up and haul it away that would be much appreciated.

A very big Thank You goes out to Roy. He has serviced the mower including, engine and transmission oil change, replaced the belts and sharpened the blades. Roy would like to ask that you keep in mind that this mower is very old and tired. Please handle it gently.

2021/2022 Youth Shooting Season

Our final youth shooting session of the season was held this past Friday the 20th. We had great attendance for the final session and wrapped up the season with our annual pizza party and the awarding of NRA marksmanship certificates and patches for seven shooters. Thanks to Dan DeKruger for all his help on the marksmanship awards. And thanks to all the families who brought snacks and goodies for the party.

Overall we were very pleased with the season. Resuming a year and a half after we had to pause due to Covid we were not sure how the turnout would be. Happily we had great turnout from both returning shooters and many new shooters. We’re happy to report that since the founding of the program in 2016 (and our first shooting in the 2017/18 season) we are now over 100 individual participants who have shot with us. Considering that we had over a full year where we could not shoot due to Covid, this is a great accomplishment.
