US Second Circuit Court of Appeals Upholds New York City Gun License Provisions

The United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals held in a decision dated February 23, 2018 that the provision of a New York City licensing scheme (Rule 5-23), under which an individual with a “premises license” for a handgun may remove the handgun from the designated premises only for specified purposes, did not violate the Second Amendment, the Commerce Clause, the fundamental right to travel, or the First Amendment.
