This is an intersting case and, if they win it, has the potential to eliminate a lot of state restrictions, against all gun owners. Once it becomes good, for retired LEOs, it has to become good, for all.

Gary, New Jersey isn’t the only state that makes it difficult for any law enforcement officer to qualify under LEOSA. Those restrictions under LEOSA require an officer to carry credentials from his former employer and qualify yearly. Many hurdles from states like NY and NJ make it difficult for these Retired Federal LEO to qualify or buy a pistol without a state pistol license since they carry under the Federal Law.
This case will take years, it won’t effect New York. If anything it will get appealed to SCOTUS but by that time we have a few cases that will possibly be heard that will change the handgun license rules throughout the liberal states.

Boosti:

   Yes, I'm aware that several other states, including NY, do this but I believe this is the first lawsuit, filed against any of them, for doing so. And, yes, like you, I expect this may have to go to SCOTUS. Hopefully, as you also mention, it will become academic, if we get solid pro-2A decisions, from some of the other pending suits.
