  • Guns will be prevented from being carried in private businesses unless the business owner explicitly allows them
  • State lawmakers will meet in an emergency session on Thursday where the state’s gun-licensing laws will be loosened to conform Supreme Court decision

  • Democrat NY Gov Kathy Hochul has warned it would lead to more gun violence
