Possession of weapons in New York: The governor speaks of a black day after the repeal of a 1913 law

Possession of weapons in New York: The governor speaks of a black day after the repeal of a 1913 law

The U.S. Supreme Court annulled a 1913 law on possession of weapons in New York. The governor of the State is talking about a frustrating day, while the NRA, the powerful lobby of the arms lovers, is triumphing.

New York Governor Kathy Hawkul described the court ruling that restored gun ownership as “absolutely shocking”. The US Supreme Court has annulled a 109-year law and now allows citizens to move around with their weapons hidden. “I’m sorry that this dark day has come,” Hawkle added.

Earlier on Thursday (June 23, 2022), the Federal Supreme Court, by a vote of 6 to 3, ruled unconstitutional a New York State law restricting the right of citizens to carry concealed weapons in public. It therefore gave New Yorkers the right to leave their homes armed.

“It is scandalous, it is absolutely scandalous that we are being deprived of the right to have reasonable restrictions,” the governor, Kathy Hawkul, told reporters. “I am very sorry that this day has come,” he added in a press conference.

Gun ownership in New York: Celebrates the lobby

The powerful NRA lobby that promotes gun ownership spoke of a “victory” in a Twitter post, stressing that Supreme Court judges deemed the restrictions provided by law in New York “unconstitutional.”

“The Supreme Court has ruled that the right to bear arms does not stop at the door of one’s home,” he added, accompanying the post with an icon symbolizing the holiday.

This decision is considered a blow to those who argued that a more rational framework for gun ownership should be established and is believed to complicate their efforts.
