What’s next for conceal carry permit holders in New York?
The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to make a decision that would change New York’s law that requires people to explain why they need a conceal carry permit.
The New York State Rifle and Pistol Association sued the state saying it violates the 2nd Amendment.
“On concealed carry– We are working with our legal team, our policy team, as well as advocates like Every Town, drawing on people who have been studying our options for quite some time. Since this case was determined to be a case before the Supreme Court this year,” Governor Kathy Hochul said of the issue.
She was ambiguous in what steps would follow if New York had to make a change in state law.
“I’m not going to say now what we are going to do, because I have to see what the rationale is for whatever decision they come down with. I need to see that first. I also have no intention of telegraphing a strategy to the Supreme Court that the State of New York may be considering because I believe that will be counterproductive when the decision is ultimately issued,” she said.
Hochul did note that once a Supreme Court decision was rendered- a state response would follow within days.
