ALBANY, NY (WNY News Now) – New York’s Attorney General is making a move in court to keep a controversial statewide gun law in effect.
Monday, AG Letitia James has announced her office has filed a request to stay a federal court’s temporary restraining order on New York’s Concealed Carry Improvement Act.
If the court approves the stay, the law remains in effect in its entirety. As it stands now the temporary restraining order, taking effect this week, prevents the state from enacting several of the act’s provisions.
This includes banning people from carrying concealed weapons in several public places like zoos, libraries, parks, and homeless shelters.
The order also prohibited New York from enacting a law that would make Times Square a “gun-free zone.”
The state AG says her office is appealing the ruling and has asked the court to stay the order until the appeal process is over.
