Gun Ban In Certain Places Remains In New York

Albany, N.Y. - The state's ban on guns in places like parks and theaters will remain in place for now.

The Associated Press reports a federal Court of Appeals panel has placed a stay on a preliminary injunction issued by a lower court last month.

That means state police can enforce the ban while the legal challenge to the state's new gun law plays out.

That panel has left an exception in place to allow weapons in places of worship.

The lower court judge had found provisions such as social media background checks for concealed permit applicants to be unconstitutional.
