Supreme Court Overturns New York Law On Conceal Guns

In 6 3 vote, Court rules requirement violates constitutional right to carry guns.

The US Supreme Court struck down a New York state law Thursday that limits the carrying of concealed weapons.
It is a crime to possess a firearm without a license in New York, whether inside or outside the home. Individuals who obtain a license to have and carry guns are required to show "proper cause."
In a 6-3 vote, the Court ruled that the requirement violates the constitutional right to carry guns.
"Because the State of New York issues public-carry licenses only when an applicant demonstrates a special need for self-defense, we conclude that the State's licensing regime violates the Constitution," wrote Justice Clarence Thomas.
The ruling sparked a backlash from the state's leadership, with Governor Kathy Hochul saying "it is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons."
"In response to this ruling, we are closely reviewing our options – including calling a special session of the legislature. Just as we swiftly passed nation-leading gun reform legislation, I will continue to do everything in my power to keep New Yorkers safe from gun violence," she wrote on Twitter.
New York Attorney General Letitia James said she is currently reviewing the decision. "We will continue to do everything in our power to protect New Yorkers from gun violence and preserve our state's common sense gun laws," she said. -
