A few months ago, NY passed the most restrictive concealed carry laws in the Country. The lawful concealed carrier, under the new laws, couldn’t carry anywhere unless permission was given. Then, a restraining order was placed. Then it was removed. Now, it’s apparently lawful again to carry in these new restricted areas.
We’re not attorneys, but this guy is:
Legal analyst and Buffalo attorney, Barry Covert, joined 2 On Your Side’s Scott Levin to break down this federal court decision and what it means for the new gun legislation.
“So it can’t be enforced until the underlying legislation or litigation plays its way out. In other words, he’s saying I find there’s a substantial likelihood on the merits for those that want it to be held constitutional so the state and no law enforcement agency can enforce it but we’re going to wait for the outcome of the eventual litigation” said Barry Covert.

What’s the conclusion? It’s hard to tell what’s lawful and what isn’t, and the only people who want to know are the lawful concealed carriers.
