Proclamation for Extraordinary Session Available Here
Governor Kathy Hochul today announced she will convene an extraordinary session of the New York State Legislature on June 30 to pass new gun safety legislation in response to the United States Supreme Court's decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen.
"The Supreme Court's reckless and reprehensible decision to strike down New York's century-old concealed carry law puts lives at risk here in New York," Governor Hochul said. "Since the decision was released, I have been working around the clock with our partners in the legislature to craft gun safety legislation in response to this ruling that will protect New Yorkers. My number one priority as Governor will always be to keep New Yorkers safe."
