Safe Act Wont Be Blocked Until The State Supreme Court Case

03.14.13 | Sarah Harnisch

A State Supreme Court judge has denied a motion to block parts of New York's SAFE Act, the new gun control law. A group of more then 12-hundred Second Amendment supporters sued the state over the haste with which the law was passed. They say it violated the state constitution. State Supreme Court Justice Thomas McNamara did not disagree, but he said he had to deny the motion because he was "constrained" by previous decisions of the state's highest court; in other words, he can't intervene in a hearing. He said they will have to wait until the case goes before the highest court in the state.
