Queens lawmakers condemn Supreme Court’s decision to overturn New York’s concealed carry gun law


As the U.S. Supreme Court’s conservative majority on Thursday, June 23, struck down a century-old New York law that limits who can carry a concealed weapon in public, Queens lawmakers expressed disappointment in the court’s landmark decision and said they will continue to work together to protect communities from gun violence and make streets safer. 

In a major ruling for gun rights, the Supreme Court justices voted 6-3 in the case of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen, where two men whose applications for unrestricted licenses were denied. The case was argued before the court in November of 2021.
