In June, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the New York State Law governing the process to obtain a conceal carry permit for a firearms.

In the case of the New York State Pistol and Rifle Association v Bruen, the high court found that the “probable cause” language in New York’s law was unconstitutional, ruling that part of the law was in violation of the second amendment.

In response, Governor Kathy Hochul called the state legislature back into session to pass new state laws dealing with conceal carry permits. The new laws restrict where concealed weapons are allowed, require background checks before buying some types of ammunition and provide changes the laws dealing with locking your weapon in your home or car.

Host David Miranda is joined by New York State Bar Association member Peggy Finerty. She is a partner at Getnick and Getnick in New York City. She is a member of the Committee on the New York State Constitution and the co-chair of the Task Force on Mass Shootings and Assault Weapons.

The two discuss the current legislation to address the conceal carry rules in the Bruen case.
