NYSRPA v. NYC - This Week on Tom Gresham’s Gun Talk®
It’s the first gun rights case to reach the Supreme Court in a decade. Plus, sanctuary cities in Virginia, an extensive firearms training program, and much more, this week on Tom Gresham's Gun Talk® Radio, the original nationally-syndicated talk show about guns and the shooting sports.
This past week, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association argued a case in front of the Supreme Court. NYSRPA (https://www.nysrpa.org) sued New York City over their firearm transport law, and the case made its way through the system, ending on the doorstep of the Supreme Court. Only AFTER the highest court decided to hear the case did NYC officials change the law. The case now addresses the mootness of the argument and if the court can rule on the case at all. Tom was there for oral arguments, and is joined by Bearing Arms editor Cam Edwards this Sunday to discuss this could-be landmark case.
After the 2019 election in Virginia, the historically red state legislature turned blue, and the anti-gun bills have been pouring in ever since. Bills to limit First Amendment speech regarding the Second Amendment, making it illegal to gather for firearms training, red flag laws, and more are heading towards committees. Virginia Citizens Defense League’s Philip Van Cleave joins Tom to discuss the current sanctuary movement in Virginia as a reaction to the extreme anti-gun legislation being proposed.

Also on this week, Chief Instructor John Hanchey of FRC gun range in Baton Rouge, LA, talks about their extensive training and educational series called the Sentinel Program, consisting of nine different classes for novice to advanced gun owners to complete, focusing on defensive use, legal issues, marksmanship, medical intervention, and more: https://www.frcbr.com/classes/sentinel-program.
