Senate Acts on SCOTUS Ruling Invalidating New York’s Concealed Carry Law

“Even as the gun industry attacks our sensible gun laws, our communities, and our children, we know we can count on New York State's leadership to protect us time and time again," said Rebecca Fischer, executive director of New Yorkers Against Gun Violence. "Last week, the gun-lobby backed U.S. Supreme Court overhauled New York's concealed carry licensing law, a law that has helped keep New Yorkers safe for over a century.  Today, our state lawmakers have taken swift action by enacting new laws that will strengthen our public carry permitting process and enable New Yorkers to live safely in sensitive places across New York.  We applaud Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, State Senators Zellnor Myrie and Brian Kavanagh, and the entire Senate Majority conference for being model leaders for our nation as we continue to address the gun violence crisis and save lives.”
