Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Case On New York Law Limiting Concealed Carry

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

The U.S. Supreme Court has refused to hear a suit against New York’s Concealed Carry Improvement Act which gun retailers in the state say hurt their businesses and violates the Second Amendment.  The law prohibits carrying a gun in places such as stadiums, houses of worship, museums, parks and other public places.  It also mandates background checks on all ammunition purchases, as well as imposes revised record-keeping requirements.  While New York State Attorney General Letitia James praised the Supreme Court’s decision, the attorney for the gun retailers, Paloma Capanna, said that the new laws “will be used to create the first-ever gun owners registry housed at the New York State Police.”
