Thursday the Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a New York gun law of more than a century that had restricted carrying concealed handguns.
This will likely set a precedent, making it easier to carry a gun in most major American cities.
New York Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, reacted with fury to the court ruling, saying that it flew in the face of efforts to restrict gun rights following several high-profile mass shootings.
‘It is outrageous that at a moment of national reckoning on gun violence, the Supreme Court has recklessly struck down a New York law that limits those who can carry concealed weapons,’ Hochul wrote in a tweet.
‘In response to this ruling, we are closely reviewing our options – including calling a special session of the legislature,’ the governor added.
