Libertarians Challenge N.Y.’s Pistol Permit Law To Be Heard February In Appeals Court

MANHATTAN – A challenge by several Libertarians to New York State’s Pistol Permit Law, known as the Sullivan Act, will be heard Feb. 10 in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.

The case was originally defeated last year when the court ruled the licensing law is a tool to keep people from buying handguns who should not own one.

The suit alleges the law is an undue burden because of its expense, time consumption and invasion of privacy.
