Up until now, New York and about seven other states required gun owners prove there’s a special need for them to carry a concealed weapon when they leave their homes and go out into public with it.

The case originated in Rensselaer County, and now five years later, the Conservative leaning Supreme Court agreed with the local litigants.

Many critics view the decision as insensitive to the victims and their families in places like Buffalo and Uvalde.Many progressives see it as a significant step backwards for American society.

This ruling comes after a spate of mass shootings that have reinvigorated the national debate over gun control.

Many people believe the timing of the ruling is insensitive. Tom King, president of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association, counters that assertion by pointing out the lawsuit was filed years ago, long before any of these recent shooting tragedies.

Hear why he says the decision was the right move by watching the video of Dan Levy’s story.
