From: New York Governor Kathy Hochul

"We are pleased with today's decision to keep provisions of the Concealed Carry Improvement Act in effect. Common-sense gun laws keep our streets and communities safe from senseless gun violence. Challenges to New York's gun laws undermine public safety and increase the presence of guns in our communities. We will continue to fiercely defend the constitutionality of our laws and protect New Yorkers from these baseless attacks."
