Democratic Governor Kathy Hochul, speaking moments after the ruling, called it deeply disturbing, and says it puts the safety of "millions of New Yorkers" at risk.

"This decision isn't just reckless, it's reprehensible," Hochul said. "It's not what New Yorkers want. And we should have the right of determination of what we want to do in terms of our gun laws in our state. If the federal government will not have sweeping laws to protect us, then our states and our governors have a moral responsibility to do what we can and have laws that protect our citizens."

A recent poll found that three-quarters of New Yorkers wanted the Supreme Court to uphold the law, including the majority of gun owners.
