New York overhauls gun laws after Supreme Court ruling


New York has passed emergency legislation to ban guns from many public places, following last month’s landmark Supreme Court ruling which struck down the state’s restrictions.

The rules also require gun buyers to prove they can use a gun and submit social media accounts for review.

Analysts say the new restrictions may end up in a fresh legal challenge.

The Supreme Court’s ruling, effectively expanding gun rights, is its most important on guns in over a decade.
