Kathy Hochul condemns Supreme Court’s ruling on New York concealed carry gun law

New York governor Kathy Hochul has condemned the Supreme Court for striking down a state gun law restricting concealed carry.

The Supreme Court ruled a law requiring handgun owners to show “proper cause” in order to obtain a license to carry a concealed weapon violates the Second Amendment.

“This decision is not just reckless, it’s reprehensible, it’s not what New Yorkers want,” she said.
