I think judges in spite of their political leaning and bias try to give logical and rational reasons for their rulings based on the letter of the law. The letter of the law has dramatically changed given the Bruen decision. That said I'm expecting a temporary injunction to be granted that halts the implementation of CCIA and that PL400 as currently written, minus proper cause which has been ruled unconstitutional, will remain in place. Counties where proper cause was used to apply restrictions can no longer enforce those restrictions and the proper cause elements of license applications will have to be removed.I know that we are not fortune tellers here otherwise one or all of us would be counting our billion from the mega millions but for an educated guess what do we think will happen? Not what do we want to happen or what is the right thing to happen but what do we think will happen given we are in NYS and liberals abound here?
This will leave in place other things that may be unconstitutional but not directly challenged in Bruen (an example would be reference requirements) to be challenged based on Bruen and the new standard of scrutiny down the road. The states can't just make up a list of requirements in order for a citizen to exercise a fundamental Constitutional right. It is now presumptive that a citizen has that right absent the government having some empirical evidence that the right should be denied based on some compelling governmental interest.
