US Supreme Court rules against state handgun law

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court has issued its biggest gun rights ruling in more than a decade. The Supreme Court said that Americans have a right to carry firearms in public for self-defense. That's important because about half a dozen states have conditioned getting a license to carry a gun in public on the person demonstrating an actual need -- sometimes called "good cause" or "proper cause" -- to carry the weapon. That limits who can carry a weapon in those states.

Body armor rules in NY get questions

ALBANY (AP) -- New York's new law barring sales of bullet-resistant vests to most civilians doesn't cover the type of armor worn by the gunman who killed 10 people at a Buffalo supermarket, a gap that could limit its effectiveness in deterring future military-style assaults. During the May 14 attack, the gunman wore a steel-plated vest, an armor strong enough to stop a handgun round fired by a store security guard who tried to halt the rampage.
