New Yorkers are divided on the Supreme Court's gun ruling

On Thursday, New Yorker's Supreme Court {6> overturns a century-old state lawthat limits who can carry guns in public. } I had various feelings about the judgment. Some celebrated the decision, others worried about their safety. 

"I got my pistol license two months ago. I applied for it in the first stages of the pandemic," said 51-year-old Nick Alpino, shooting a Queens Woodhaven rifle and pistol. I told the post outside the venue. "Would you like to apply for a carry permit? Immediately!"

"I was very excited when I heard this morning," Alpino added. "I will apply as soon as possible. As much as possible ... my wife and all her friends want to apply now."

A 6-3 decision issued Thursday morning. The New York Sullivan Law, which has been in the book since 1913, holds and retains the right to keep and bear arms, the second amendment right, and the Bill of Rights.

Nick Arpino, 51, of Queens expressed excitement over the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a state law limiting who could carry guns in public.

The law requires a New Yorker who wants to get a license to carry a pistol To show "justification" that weapons were needed especially for self-defense in public.

Now that the Sullivan Act has been overturned, it may be easier for people to carry guns in public. The news made Brooklynite Ansonia Lucas uncomfortable. 

"New York crime rates have risen exponentially in the last few years and only get worse," she said. 

"We are already afraid to use public transport every day. And now we deal with people with potential weapons. You have to do it. It's ridiculous. "

Oumou Haidara, 25, agreed. 

"I don't think this is the best decision given the shootings that have taken so far. Some are racially motivated. Some people are doing it as a result of approaching crime, "she said. 

"New York is diverse but very isolated. This is the definition of terrorizing people. Making people live in fear of what's to come. Is a form of terrorism. "

Mayor Erik Adams warned at a press conference in the afternoon thatso farwouldn't change anything. 

Alliyah Brown, 27, called this decision "reckless" because of the high rate ofviolence and theBig Apple already working on it.

"This will do more harm to our people. We already had to worry about random behavior, and now it is up to each individual to add fuel to the fire. You have to worry if you have a gun, "Brown said. "This decision will cause turmoil in our city." 

While Anaxson Labissiere, 35, supports the second amendment, he is not convinced that the recent ruling is a "good idea" in New York City.

Anaxon Raviciere, 35, upheld gun rights and told the post that he was allowed to bring in other states, but it was "in five autonomous regions." I don't know if it's a good idea. 

"I think the underworld may be happy today because there are a lot of people here who don't have a license and are carrying it anyway, but we have to see it. No, we need to figure out how they get the license, "says La Vicière. 

Matthew Aliyashi, 46, who owns Queen's Deli, said the decision was to "open a door that could cause confusion." 

"Many people will be killed with allowed guns. Instead of being beaten or stabbed, they will be shot this time," he said. 

Returning to the Queens shooting range, employees did not seem to be upset by the decision and said it would take some time for something to change. 

"This will be a constant proceeding," the workers said.  

"They are worried about subway shooters, baseball shooters. They have it now.

" Nothing will change. . "
