PCAC Statement: Riders Alarmed With the Supreme Court’s Ruling on NY’s Gun Laws

“There are already too many weapons in our transit system, and we’re extremely disappointed with what the Supreme Court’s ruling to change conceal carry laws in New York means for riders: in fact, we’re alarmed. After the spate of recent shootings, riders have made it clear that they do not feel safer or comfortable with people more easily bringing guns into the transit system. The state, city, and MTA should continue to ban guns on transit and continue to fight against ghost guns and other illegal weapons. We urge the Governor and Mayor to pass laws emphasizing this ban, similar to the laws the Governor recently passed in anticipation of Roe v. Wade being overturned.”
