WASHINGTON - President Biden is "deeply disappointed" with a Supreme Court gun decision that struck down a New York law restricting access to concealed carry permits Thursday.Biden released the statement hours after the Supreme Court released its decision.

The New York law had required permit applicants to provide specific reasons for needing a firearm. "Since 1911, the State of New York has required individuals who would like to carry a concealed weapon in public to show a need to do so for the purpose of self-defense and to acquire a license," Biden wrote. "More than a century later, the United States Supreme Court has chosen to strike down New York’s long-established authority to protect its citizens.""I urge states to continue to enact and enforce commonsense laws to make their citizens and communities safer from gun violence," he added.HOUSE BILL CREATING ACTIVE SHOOTER ALERT SYSTEM DOESN'T PASSBiden's statement came minutes after Democratic New York Gov.

Kathy Hochul also condemned the ruling, calling it a "dark day" for New York. Hochul stated that the U.S. only had access to muskets when the 2nd Amendment was written, and that she was "prepared to go back to muskets" through gun restrictions.President Joe Biden departs the podium after delivering remarks on the recent mass shootings from the White House on June 2, 2022.

Dearth of downtown workers means end of the line for Winnipeg restaurant after 40+ years
COVID-19 pandemic.Downtown staple Nathan Detroit’s Sandwich Pad will be closing for good later this month after more than four decades in business.The eatery, located in the underground beneath the Fairmont Hotel and the Richardson building, said much of its business comes from downtown workers — a group that hasn’t fully rebounded since the pandemic began.Brenlea Yamron, who runs Nathan Detroit’s with her sister Karen after taking over from their late father 20 years ago, told 680 CJOB’s The Start that the outpouring of support from the public is making the tough decision a little easier.“It’s hard, but we are so enjoying all that Nathan’s has given our family,” Yamron said.“We’re so incredibly overwhelmed by the people out there. We are lovers of Winnipeg, we are promoters of Winnipeg — we’ve all raised our families in Winnipeg.“Winnipeg … man, are you making us proud right now.”Yamron said that while the closure will give their mother, Fraydel, the opportunity to finally retire after 40+ years, the future remains unwritten for the sisters.“My sister and I are definitely way too young to retire, so we’re going to be looking for something else,” she said.“Whatever it’ll be, we’ll enjoy hopefully a little time off and then start looking — but it will definitely be in Winnipeg.”The restaurant will be making an announcement in the near future about the plans for Nathan Detroit’s final days.The president of the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce says it’s a simple fact that businesses like Nathan Detroit’s need more people downtown in order to stay open, and that as more and more businesses take on debt to make it through, many have reached their limit.

AMS urges President & PM to step down
COLOMBO (News 1st); The Association of Medical Specialists (AMS) says that President Gotabaya Rajapaksha and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should step down immediately paving way to a credible, all party, interim Government to take over for a specified period, and if the authorities do not heed, the AMS has threatened to launch nationwide trade union action and mass scale peaceful protests.In a communique, the AMS notes that Sri Lanka had experienced the worst ever recorded economic downturn in the country, however the worst is yet to come.As a result of this, AMS points out that medical specialists are experiencing multiple challenges during the process of delivering optimum health care to our citizens, as all medical staff go that extra mile to serve our people under trying circumstances, they too have experienced the strategy of the rulers not only to ” patch up “but also to “divide and rule “to divert the focus of attention, capitalising on fuel shortage.The AMS strongly believe that distribution of fuel or any other essential commodity, when in short supply, should be done in a rational manner based on the ultimate benefit to the citizen of this country and should not lead to any division within the society.“We are of the opinion that it is the responsibility of all citizens of the country to direct the government to find a workable solution for the present crisis before it becomes unsalvageable,” the statement mentions.Therefore, the AMS reiterates their current stand endorsed by the membership at the recently held annual general meeting that the President Gotabaya Rajapaksha and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe should step down immediately paving way to a credible, all party, interim government to take
