New York's Ban on Guns in Houses of Worship

 Preliminary injunction granted prohibiting enforcement of the ban and for all the right reasons.  Hardaway v. Nigrelli (W.D.N.Y. 2022).  If there is any tradition about and churches in effect in 1791 or 1868, it was the requirement to be armed present in several of the colonies.  Left unsaid: if white supremacists want to attack a black church or a Jewish house of worship, a ban will not stop them but an armed worshipper might.
