State lawmakers are still working to pass additional gun legislation that's aimed at protecting New Yorkers.
Lawmakers were called back to the Capitol Thursday by Governor Hochul for a special session in response to a U.S. Supreme Court decision that overturned the state's conceal carry weapons law. However, voting didn't begin right away because lawmakers needed to wait while the official bill language was negotiated. The governor wants the Assembly and Senate to pass a measure that'd ban guns in certain locations such as government buildings and schools. She also wants it to be tougher for people with a history of dangerous behavior to get a concealed carry permit.
