New York County District Attorney Cy Vance in an interview aired Sunday blasted a GOP plan that would allow qualified owners to carry concealed handguns in other states that allow individuals to carry concealed firearms.
Speaking to radio host John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, Vance argued that the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act introduced earlier this year would only put New York City at risk of violence.
"If that bill passes, I believe the safety, and the greater safety we have achieved will be at risk," he said.
The bill, which was introduced in the House by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.) and a version in the Senate by Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), would allow concealed carry owners to carry in any state that permits the practice as long as they qualify to concealed carry in their home state.
