Cryo Chamber


The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit against Westchester County, visit web New York and its handgun permit licensing officers, seeking a permanent injunction against enforcement of a state law that allows carry licenses to be denied because applicants cannot show “good cause.”

SAF is joined in the lawsuit by Alan Kachalsky and Christina Nikolov, both Westchester County residents whose permit applications were denied. Kachalsky’s denial was because he could not “demonstrate a need for self protection distinguishable from that of the general public.” Nikolov’s was denied because she could not demonstrate that there was “any type of threat to her own safety anywhere.” In addition to Westchester County, Susan Cacace and Jeffrey Cohen, both serving at times as handgun permit licensing officers, are named as defendants. The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, White Plains Division.

Attorney Alan Gura is representing the plaintiffs, along with attorney Vincent Gelardi with Gelardi & Randazzo of Rye Brook, NY. Gura recently represented SAF and the Illinois State Rifle Association in their landmark Second Amendment Supreme Court victory over the City of Chicago.-[source]

    I wonder why that my NYS CCW can Be restricted by Nassau County PD(NY)by stamping on it target/hunting by the Nassau PD, but my FLorida Non res. will let me carry in 29 states (not NY). Last renewal I had to bring my licence and pistols in for inspection, I aske what I had to do to have the restrictions removed. I was told that unless i could prove need it would not happen. So I asked the officer at the pistol div. what I needed to do, he looked at me and said “move to NH.”
    Thats NY. I hope they win in Westchester so I can have back the freedom we have had taken away.
