More people could soon be carrying concealed weapons around New York City thanks to a new emergency rule from the NYPD.

NEW YORK (WABC) -- More people could soon be carrying concealed weapons around New York City thanks to a new emergency rule from the NYPD.

The department is giving people previously rejected for special licenses 60-days to reapply for free.

The rule is a direct result of the recent Supreme Court decision that overturned state gun restrictions.

Before the ruling, people could be denied licenses for a lack of proper cause.
