On June 23rd 2022 the Supreme Court of The United States (SCOTUS) ruled in the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA) vs. Bruen case, which took seven-years to make it to the Supreme Court, that New York State’s “proper cause” scrutiny was not constitutional. While many states immediately started to comply with the SCOTUS ruling the political mob of New York State was enraged. To spite SCOTUS and their ruling, the NY State Senate and Assembly put forth S51001 and the governor signed it into law on the 1st of July 2022. This law is called the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA).
