NEW YORK, NY (October 24, 2022) – Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) announced today that, because of New York’s defeat in NYSRPA v. Bruen, New York City’s subsequent elimination of the city’s “proper cause” requirement, and the acquisition of unrestricted carry permits by all individual plaintiffs, the parties in its Greco v. NYC litigation filed a stipulation to dismiss the case as moot. The stipulation, which was approved today by Southern District of New York Judge Lewis Liman, can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.
“Make no mistake, the satisfactory outcome of this case is just the beginning of the larger fight to restore the rights of all New Yorkers,” said FPC Director of Legal Operations Bill Sack. “FPC Law is still involved in multiple active suits against New York, and will continue to drag New York lawmakers kicking and screaming into compliance with the dictates of the constitution.”
FPC is joined in this lawsuit by the Second Amendment Foundation.
