NY leaders vow new gun limits after Supreme Court ruling

For decades, New York’s leaders boasted that its strict limits on handgun ownership made it one of America’s safest places, a claim backed by statistics showing the state — and its biggest city — consistently have among the nation’s lowest firearm death rates. Now, in the aftermath of a Supreme Court decision striking down key portions of the state’s gun-licensing law, lawmakers will try to preserve as many restrictions as they can on who can carry a pistol and where they can bring it. Gov. Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, vowed Thursday to call the Democrat-led Legislature back for a special session to pass new rules, including a law specifying “sensitive locations” where people cannot carry concealed weapons, like school zones, bars or hospitals.
