No stringent rules, everyone has the right to bring weapons even outside your home. There Supreme Court American rejects, as unconstitutional, the restrictions on port of arms to New Yorksiding in fact in support of the Second Amendment. With this decision, taken with six votes in favor and three against, the Court effectively sanctions the right to carry arms. President Joe Biden it is said “deeply disappointed“From the decision of the Court and – as stated in a note from the White House – asks US states to” make their voices heard “on guns and rifles and” continue to implement common sense rules “for the safety of their citizens in the face of gun violence.

Gunmakers toast – The failing New York law stipulated the need to have one license to carry a firearm in public, limiting the right to take an unseen firearm out of your home, except for proven personal safety reasons. The restrictions were in place for over a century. The wise have established that the “right causea ”, provided for in the Big Apple, for weapons violates the constitution because the“ Second Amendment protects the rights of individuals to carry a weapon with you away from home in self-defense“. There National Rifle Associationthe powerful Use weapons lobbydeclares “victory” after the sentence: “The Supreme Court affirmed that the right carrying weapons does not stop at the front door ”, writes the NRA on its Twitter account. The immediate reaction to the Supreme Court’s decision was the reaction of the stock exchange: for example, the stock Smith & Wesson (US firearms company) soars over 7%.

“Violates the Constitution” – “Since the state of New York grants permissions to carry arms in public only to those who demonstrate a special need for self-defense, we conclude that this regime violates the Constitution,” reads the sentence written by Clarence Thomas and supported by the other five conservative judges. This is the first important ruling of the Court in defense of the second amendment, the one considered in defense of the right to own weapons, in over a decade. And this ruling may also have an effect in other states that have adopted laws similar to that of New York for the authorization to circulate armed. The decision comes at a time when the arms debate is heated in the United States, after the recent one massacre in the elementary school in Texasand for the first time in 30 years he found himself al Congress a bipartisan agreement to approve a package of measures for greater control over arms sales.

“Outrageous decision” – Harsh replica of the governor of New York, Kathy Hochul: “It is outrageous that in a moment of national reflection on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly canceled the law of New York that places limits on those who can bear arms, ”the governor wrote on Twitter. In response to the court’s decision, the governor announces, “we are carefully weighing our options, including one special session of the legislative assembly“. Hochul assures that “I will continue to do everything in my power to keep the citizens of New York safe from gun violence“. The Supreme Court decision exposes New Yorkers to “additional risks of gun violence” and paves the way for a wave of violence, said the mayor from New York, Eric Adams.

The risk of domino effect – A decision that, in addition to facilitating the circulation of guns and rifles in the metropolis, could generate a Domino effect which could involve 12 other states of the country, including California, New Jersey, Maryland, Hawaii And Massachusetts. At the beginning of June, the mayor of New York also spoke on the issue because in his city cases of violence with the use of firearms have skyrocketed in recent years. From 2019 to 2021 have passed from 777 to 1,562double in just two years, with figures reaching their highest levels since 2006.
