After Supreme Court overturned New York’s concealed carry law, Americans react

Americans visiting a public park shared their reactions to the Supreme Court overturning a New York law that restricted people’s ability to carry concealed firearms in public.

“I think that today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is dangerous,” Brian, a New Yorker, told Fox News, at New York’s High Line park. “It probably is going to put a lot more guns on the street that probably are already there.

“I don’t want a gun, and I don’t want anybody I know to have a gun.”

Lionel, from Chicago, disagreed.

“In light of all this carjacking going on … I’m thinking about getting concealed carry to defend myself, my wife and my property,” he said. 

The Supreme Court overturned a New York state law Thursday that required anyone who wanted to carry concealed guns in public to show they had “proper cause” indicating they had a specific need.

The justices, in the 6-3 ruling, said the law violated the Second Amendment. 

“It’s just going to add a lot more to the numbers,” Brian said. “We don’t know who’s carrying guns right now. It’s frightening.” 

Mila, New York, said the Supreme Court’s ruling was “shameful.”

“We don’t want their decisions,” she told Fox News. “The illegitimacy of not being able to have an abortion but being able to be exposed to guns everywhere? Horrible.” 

BIDEN REACTS TO SUPREME COURT GUN DECISION: ‘DEEPLY DISAPPOINTED’ 

Children run to safety after escaping from a window during a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School, where a gunman killed 19 children and two adults in Uvalde, Texas, May 24, 2022. 

The Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade Friday, giving the states authority to establish their own abortion laws. 

“With what’s going on in our country? We should be looking at stricter laws,” one woman told Fox News.

President Biden signed the most sweeping gun control legislation in three decades into law Saturday. The bipartisan bill expands background checks and gives states incentives to pass red flag laws that allow firearms to be taken from people who could be a threat to themselves or others.

“Enough is enough. I mean those kids in Parkland, and now Uvalde,” said Kathy of New York, referencing a pair of mass shootings. 

“Every other day you are hearing about mass shootings.”

One man said he had “mixed feelings” about the New York carry law being overturned.

“I don’t think guns per se are the problem. It’s the people that wield them,” he said. “I would say that it is an invitation for more aggressive behavior.

“If you are going to disarm people, disarm the police as well.”

Glenn, a New Yorker, added, “I don’t think that the answer is more guns.”
