NY governor calls SC ruling "absolutely shocking" & says she's already prepared new gun legislation

NYT Politics @nytpolitics 3m
New York officials and law enforcement are preparing for a new legal regime after the Supreme Court struck down a law limiting handgun carrying. Gov. Kathy Hochul called the ruling "absolutely shocking" and said she already had language for new measures.



___Ms. Hochul, visibly angry, said that her team was reading the language of the decision and that they had already prepared draft legislation to place new restrictions on New Yorkers’ ability to carry guns. She planned to call the legislature back to Albany for a special session, she said, and was discussing dates with legislative leaders.

“In that special session, we will have worked out language that identifies restrictions on sensitive locations, which we will be defining,” she said.

“I don’t think this is going to take that long,” she added, saying that the special session would likely take place in July.

Ms. Hochul said that new laws would look at whether the state could restrict carrying handguns in sensitive locations. She also said that the state was considering changing the permitting process to create basic qualifications for gun owners, including training requirements. And she said New York was considering a system where businesses and private property owners could set their own restrictions on firearms.

1. It's not shocking at all

It was fully expected by this Court.

2. it's shocking to most Americans

...and evidently not unexpected at all by the governor.

"Does everyone understand what a concealed weapon means? That you have no forewarning that someone can hide a weapon on them and go into our subways, going to our grocery stores, like stores up in Buffalo, New York, where I'm from," she continued. "This decision isn't just reckless. It's reprehensible. It's not what New Yorkers want. And we should have the right of determination of what we want to do in terms of our gun laws in our state."
