“New Yorkers deserve to be safe from all forms of violence, including the gun violence that has harmed our communities for too long. The U.S. Supreme Court’s dangerous ruling to make the concealed carrying of guns in New York easier puts us at risk of even more bloodshed and trauma. I applaud our state partners for convening a special session to pass laws that will protect New Yorkers and save lives, especially the expansion of ‘sensitive areas’ to restrict guns in locations that the New York City Council identified as in need of protection. These measures are crucial, and I thank Governor Hochul and state legislative leaders for their leadership to protect New York from the detrimental impacts of this misguided decision.”
