The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

 

New York’s standing as the safest big city in the nation is at risk. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act, currently pending in the U.S. House and Senate, would make any state-issued permit or privilege to carry concealed weapons valid in every other state regardless of local law. This legislation would override our state’s restrictive concealed-weapons permitting system and force New York to honor concealed-carry firearm privileges issued in other states that have much weaker standards. Under this law, someone could drive to New Hampshire in the morning, buy a handgun at lunchtime, and carry it hidden and loaded into Time Square in time for dinner without having done anything illegal until they pull the weapon out.

Passage of CCRA could unleash countless new concealed weapons on the streets of New York and undermine public safety. Politico recently reported that the House could consider CCRA as early as October so we must do everything in our power to defeat this dangerous legislation now.
