New York’s Concealed Gun Restrictions Survive Court Challenge

  • US judge invites gun rights groups to try again to block law
  • Licensed concealed weapons can provide safety, judge reasons

New York defeated an attempt by gun-rights proponents to stop it from enforcing new restrictions on who and where people can carry concealed weapons.

US District Judge Glenn Suddaby in Syracuse rejected the request by Gun Owners of America Inc. and others for an order to halt the roll-out of the state’s Concealed Carry Improvement Act.
