After the US Supreme Court overturned the decision restricting civilians from carrying guns in New York, the state administration reportedly added to an existing decision on firearms that those who want to have guns in invisible form “must share their information on their social media accounts”.
It was emphasized that the additional decision signed by New York Governor Kathy Hochul will come into effect from September, and that those who want to carry a concealed gun in this way will have the opportunity to “review their characters and behaviors” from their social media accounts.
Peter Kehoe, the director of the New York Sheriffs Association, who put his concerns about the additional decision into words, stated that no additional workers and budgets are allocated for the new application, and that the local authorities may abstain from the worry that the decision may violate the 2nd Annex of the Constitution, which protects the right to acquire a gun.
On June 23, the US Supreme Court annulled the New York state’s decision to restrict civilians from carrying weapons, on the grounds that it was contrary to the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.
In a written statement made after the announcement of the decision, US Leader Joe Biden stated that in 1911, the state of New York requested documents from people who wanted to carry a gun, stating that it needed it.
Biden stated that the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, which gives the right to own guns to US citizens, is not absolute and invited the whole country to raise its voice to stand against armed violence.
