N.Y. Lawmakers Introduce Bill Aimed at Limiting Concealed Guns

New York state lawmakers introduced a bill on Friday that would ban people from carrying concealed guns in Times Square, mass public transportation, schools, polling places and government buildings, ABC News reports.

The proposed legislation was sparked by the Supreme Court decision to overturn a state law that had restricted those who could get permits to carry concealed weapons.

The Supreme Court, in a 6-3 decision, ruled last week that the Constitution provides a right to carry a gun outside the home.

The ruling was considered a major victory for gun owners. It came in a case involving a New York law requiring a concealed carry application to demonstrate a special need for the protection.

Gov. Kathy Hochul had summoned the Legislature back in session in order to come up with the bill, the Daily News in New York reported.

The bill would also ban concealed weapons in houses of worship, libraries, public playgrounds, public parks, zoos, and homeless shelters. The bill would also ban guns on all private property, unless the owner of the property has a sign permitting guns.

"We want to ensure we're doing this in a constitutional way, in a way that comports with the court's opinion," state Sen. Zellnor Myrie, a Democrat, said, according to the Daily News.
