Letters to the Editor — June 25, 2022


The Issue: The Supreme Court’s overturning of New York’s law restricting the carrying of concealed firearms.

I believe The Post’s editorial about being disappointed with the Supreme Court’s ruling on concealed carry is misguided (“Supreme Disappointment,” June 24).

I am a former New York resident and had a concealed carry permit. I had to be fingerprinted, give references and was subjected to a background check before I was approved.

Criminals don’t follow laws. Law-abiding citizens are not going to make New York streets unsafe. It’s the lawless individuals and the coward politicians that make the streets unsafe. Maybe a criminal will think twice now that law-abiding citizens can legally carry.

In these hyper-polarized times, there are very few issues that folks on the far left and far right agree upon.
