NYSAFE Challenge Struck Down

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A trial-level judge has ruled that New York's new gun law does not violate the Second Amendment.

Wednesday's decision from state Supreme Court Justice Thomas McNamara also rejected claims that the gun law was improperly pushed through the legislature by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Cuomo issued a "message of necessity" that let lawmakers approve the measure without the usual waiting period for the consideration of bills. The law bans the sale of many semi-automatic firearms.
McNamara ruled that plaintiff Robert Schulz failed to make his case that the law violates protections on gun rights and that Cuomo's emergency justification was false.
Schulz plans to appeal the ruling to the Court of Appeals, the state's highest court.
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says the law established necessary safeguards without infringing on gun rights.
