FOR ANDREW CUOMO, A HASTY LAW IS IN TROUBLE ALREADY: Gun-Rights Experts Call Local Challenge To “SAFE Act” Significant. “The federal lawsuit filed in Buffalo earlier this month raises serious constitutional questions about several of the new law’s provisions, according to legal scholars who specialize in studying the Second Amendment – which guarantees gun rights – and who are familiar with the New York measure. Most notably, legal scholars said, the Buffalo case might be the one in which the court determines whether the Second Amendment gives people the right to own the kind of assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips that the SAFE Act seeks to ban. ‘This is a very significant case,’ said James B. Jacobs, a constitutional law professor and director of the Center for Research in Crime and Justice at the New York University School of Law. ‘It may go all the way to the Supreme Court.’” Oft evil will shall evil mar.

All I can say is, I told you so.
