New York passes emergency law tightening gun rules in public places

New York has passed an emergency law imposing a ban on guns in many public places, following a landmark Supreme Court ruling last month that eliminated the state's restrictions on gun ownership.

The new rules also require gun buyers to prove their ability to use the gun and submit social media accounts for review.

Analysts say the new restrictions could lead to new court challenges.

The Supreme Court ruling, which effectively expands gun rights, is the most significant on guns in more than a decade.

There is a heated debate in the United States about carrying guns, particularly between Republicans who favor guns and Democrats who want tighter controls.
