( – The Supreme Court rejected a bid by New York gin retailers that sought to block the new gun control laws in the state. In the filing, the New York gun retailers had claimed that the laws violated their Second Amendment rights and would cause them issues with their business.

The justices did not provide any dissents or explanations for why the bid was rejected. Paloma Capanna, the lead attorney in the case said she was disappointed to see none of the Justices thought that the retailers should be granted some rights that would protect their business against this law.

She added the case is essentially challenging the extent that New York should be allowed to target gun retailers and even cause them to go out of business. She continued to say that this is going to be the result of this new law since they were not able to even get an “emergency temporary injunction” in order for them to have some protection.

New York Attorney General Letitia James praised the Supreme Court’s decision noting the importance of gun safety laws.

Last week the high court also rejected a different bid by gun rights activists for the Concealed Carry Improvement Act to be blocked. The act had been passed in the last Congress when the Democrats were in control of both the House and Senate.

The New York bill in question was passed after the Supreme Court struck down the state’s previous law in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, Inc. v. Bruen. At the time Justice Clarence Thomas had said that carrying firearms for protection was protected by “the Second and Fourteenth Amendments.”
