The Supreme Court of the United States struck down the New York law that limits guns in public. The decision was based on an interpretation of the Second Amendment, which it will make state-enforced gun control more difficult.
The Supreme Court said Thursday that Americans have the right to carry a firearm outside the home for self-defense and that a recently enacted New York law requiring a special need for such a permit is too restrictive.
The vote was 6 judges in favor and 3 against this annulment. The mostly conservative judges say that the The Second and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution protect the right from one individual to carry a firearm.
Contrary to this, the jLiberal judges say the way states and local governments try to reduce mass shootings is being blocked, passing local laws to limit access to the purchase and carrying of weapons.
