For the time being, New York State shall remain a “may issue” state for CCW permits. From Fox News:

The Supreme Court is staying out of the gun debate for now.

The justices on Monday declined to hear a challenge to a strict New York law that makes it difficult for residents to get a license to carry a concealed handgun in public.

The court did not comment in turning away an appeal from five state residents and the Second Amendment Foundation. Their lawsuit also drew support from the National Rifle Association and 20 states.

So, if you live in NYC and you’re not a celebrity or a diamond merchant, you’re an open target for thugs.
