    The Supreme Court may have recognized the right of individuals to possess lawful firearms in their homes, but it did not overrule the established precedent that the Second Amendment applies only to Congress and not to the states, (Judge) Walsh wrote.
    .......
    Tom King, president of the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, said Walsh is "probably right" in his interpretation of the Supreme Court ruling and its impact.
    "That's the way it is," he said.
    King said he had never expected the Supreme Court ruling in the District of Columbia case to end up striking down licensing laws and restrictions in states and communities across the country. It will require other court challenges around the country in the wake of that recent ruling to determine what impact it may ultimately have, he said.
    King said there were no known challenges at this point to the laws in New York based on the Supreme Court ruling.

    Tom King in the news again. You would think he could add something like I understand he was carrying for self-defense, the system needs to be changed, etc...

    Get rid of Tom King


    Burress did have a concealed-weapon permit issued to him in Florida, where he has a home, but records show it expired in May.
    And even if it was still valid, New York does not recognize out-of-state permits.
    "New York has the most restrictive pistol-licensing system in the United States," said Thomas King, president of the New York Rifle and Pistol Association. "It recognizes absolutely no out-of-state permits. An out-of-stater never has the authority to carry [here]."
