AG applauds SCOTUS decision to let NY gun law stand amid litigation
New York Attorney General Letitia James has expressed her support for the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on a controversial gun law amid the appeals process.
New York's Concealed Carry Improvement Act can remain in effect as the appeals process continues through the court system, the high court decided. The law has been met with several legal challenges from gun rights groups across the state. The law, which went into effect in September 2022, prohibits guns in places deemed sensitive, such as schools.
The law also requires concealed carry permit holders to obtain a property owner's consent to carry a registered weapon on their premises.
James said in a release that too many state residents have been affected by gun violence and that basic firearms safety laws help save lives.
