    SAF SUES CORTLAND HOUSING AUTHORITY OVER 2A VIOLATIONS​


    BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation has filed a federal lawsuit against the Cortland, N.Y., Housing Authority (CHA), alleging Second Amendment violations by prohibiting tenants from possessing firearms on CHA premises.

    Joining SAF are three private citizens — all CHA residents — Doug Merrin, Elmer Irwin and Robert Hunter. They are represented by attorney Edward A. Paltzik at Bochner Law in New York City. Defendants are the housing authority and CHA Executive Director Ella M. Dilorio in her official capacity.

    The complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York.

    “The Supreme Court made clear in Heller, the home is where the need for defense of self, family and property is most acute,” SAF Executive Director Adam Kraut observed. “We’ve been involved in similar cases and prevailed because a ban on the possession of firearms in public housing is a flagrant violation of Second Amendment rights. The public housing authority’s refusal to alter their lease agreement to comport with the requirements of the Constitution demonstrates their disdain for low-income, elderly residents being able to exercise their rights. SAF looks forward to vindicating their rights and forcing the housing authority to respect the Constitution.

    “This case is nearly identical to one we handled a few years ago in Illinois,” recalled SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “We obtained a permanent injunction against the East St. Louis Housing Authority for the same violation.”

    SAF is seeking a temporary restraining order followed by a preliminary and permanent injunction, and a judgment by the court that this firearms ban is unconstitutional under the Second and Fourteenth amendments. The lawsuit is also seeking compensatory and/or punitive damages.

    “The prohibition on firearms on CHA property is unconstitutional on its face,” Kraut said. “We will pursue such cases when they come to our attention.”

    Washington Gun Law President, William Kirk, discusses the case of Hunter v. Cortland Housing Authority, a case which attempt to address one of the greatest violations of Second Amendment Rights ever, and one that has been occurring right under our nose for decades now. Did you know that if you rely upon government assisted housing, your lease agreement surrenders your Second Amendment rights? Well after the Second Amendment Foundation brought a lawsuit you're not going to believe how the government intends on justifying it. It almost as stupid as it is offensive. So learn more and arm yourself with education today.

    From link:


    Jody Madeira, Indiana University Maurer School of Law professor, said:

    ‘’if everyone who reports to a crime scene trying to help is carrying a firearm, then no one knows who the bad guy is.”


    Yes, some are that stupid.

    And they project their own stupidity onto others. . . . . . . .

    Worse, many of them are public employees, paid to ‘’teach’’ our Young.
