New York lawmakers pass gun safety bill in response to US Supreme Court striking down handgun law


(CNN)The New York State Legislature on Friday passed a bill restricting the concealed carry of firearms in locations such as government buildings and schools after the US Supreme Court last week struck down the state’s century-old law that had placed restrictions on carrying a concealed handgun outside the home.

The state Senate passed the bill 43-20 Friday in a party-line vote. The state Assembly passed the legislation Friday evening 91-51.
