New York Attorney General Letitia James has filed a motion to appeal a federal judge’s ruling on New York’s gun legislation.
Judge Glenn Suddaby ordered a temporary hold on several provisions of the state’s new gun laws that went into effect on September 1st.
Part of the issue at the center of the rule was a requirement that permit applicants hand over social media account information.
“Today my office filed a motion to keep the entire Concealed Carry Improvement Act in effect and continue to protect communities as the appeals process moves forward,” James said. “This common-sense gun control legislation is critical in our state’s effort to reduce gun violence. We will continue to fight for the safety of everyday New Yorkers.”
