The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit against NY Governor Cuomo after he order the closure of gun stores deeming them a nonessential business

The NRA is filing a lawsuit against New York stating that the order for gun stores to close is a violation of individuals’ constitutional rights. The order leaves citizens defenseless as more prisoners are being released from jail during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Cuomo’s March 20 executive order that included firearms retailers as non-essential businesses which must close is a pointless and arbitrary attack on the constitutional rights of New York citizens and residents,”
– NRA lawsuit

The order was issued on March 20 which ordered all nonessential businesses to close. Grocery stores, liquor stores, pharmacies and restaurants that offer take out are allowed to remain open.

“New York officials are going out of their way to protect liquor stores and release criminals onto the streets, while ignoring the public’s outcry over the suspension of Second Amendment rights,”

The NRA has also filed suit against several cities in Northern California that have ordered the closure of firearms retailers as well.

As firearm retailers see a dramatic increase in sales since the coronavirus pandemic the Trump Administration offered guidelines on what is an essential business and listed firearms retailers as essential.

As inmates are getting released from prison, individuals living in New York have concerns about the police being able to provide adequate protection

“New Yorkers have read about the release of thousands of prisoners by state officials, and they are concerned about the ability of police forces to maintain order when officers fear contact with Covid-19 or have fallen ill themselves,”
– NRA lawsuit
