NY State’s gun control law will remain in effect as it moves through legal system
ALBANY N.Y. — New York State’s law to restrict carrying guns in public places will remain in effect as the case moves through the legal system.
An appeals court on Wednesday issued a stay on a federal judge’s decision that would have temporarily blocked parts of it. This gives the New York State Attorney General’s Office more time to argue for the laws.
A judge on October 6 found the requirements that new applicants submit social media accounts and the names and numbers of everyone who lives in their house were both unconstitutional.
Then on Monday, the state asked an appeals court to allow the gun laws to stay during the appeals process. That was granted.
