NEW YORK (WABC) -- For now, New York's conceal carry law is being upheld.

The conceal carry law banned guns in certain "sensitive areas" like Times Square.

A lower court struck down the ban as unconstitutional over the summer.

The ban on guns in sensitive areas will remain while the state appeals.
