Help Challenge  N.Y. Gun Control law in the U. S. Court of Appeals.

The 1911 N.Y. Sullivan gun control act was written to protect the N.Y.C mob.

The father of New York gun control was “Big Tim “Sullivan — a state senator and Tammany Hall crook, a criminal mobster overseer of the gangs ... Meanwhile, savor the irony of an edict written by a corrupt politician to save his bad guys from the electric chair's was used against law-abiding citizens, basically taking guns away from honest business owners stopping them from shooting the criminals that wanted to collect protection fees.

Everybody talks about the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms but nobody DOES anything about it.

Rallies, speeches, yelling at the TV and calling in to talk radio accomplish nothing.  We need less talk and more action.

The Libertarian Party of Erie County and nine brave citizens decided to get off the couch and actually do something.  They sued Governor Cuomo and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to have the New York Pistol Permit Law, one of the nation’s oldest gun-owner control laws, declared unconstitutional under Heller and McDonald. Libertarian Party of Erie County et al v. Cuomo et al, Case Number: 1:15-cv-00654, WDNY.
As we anticipated, a Federal Judge in Rochester dismissed the suit but an appeal has been filed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and we intend to take the fight all the way to the Supreme Court which now has a new pro-Second Amendment justice, Neil Gorsuch.  Here is a link to the decision dismissing the lawsuit. https://docs.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/new-york/nywdce/1:2015cv00654/103841/33

The appeal is being handled by long-time Second Amendment lawyer and constitutional expert James Ostrowski, who writes legal briefs in plain English and is not afraid to educate judges about the true purpose of the Second Amendment, to deter government tyranny!

Please help raise the funds for this appeal.  We also urge you to attend a rally on the steps of Foley Square the day the appeal is heard (date to be announced).  The government, using our taxes, has unlimited legal resources to use to destroy our rights.  Our own legal budget is just $5,000.  Please donate today.

This is a historical moment to take a bold step toward having this unconstitutional law ultimately reviewed by Trump-appointee Neil Gorsuch, Second Amendment hero Clarence Thomas and the other conservatives on the Supreme Court.

Please act now and send a small donation to the plaintiffs in this lawsuit and keep in mind, they are fighting for all us!

Thank You.
