    New York is against National Conceal Carry.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/poli...icle-1.2116821

    WASHINGTON — A Texas Republican’s bid to force all states to accept the lax gun laws of the country’s most firearm-friendly states has New Yorkers up in arms.
    Sen. John Cornyn, the Senate’s second-ranking Republican, introduced a “concealed-carry reciprocity” bill Thursday.


    “This bill is evil and dangerous,” said Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
    Democrats for years have blocked similar bills. But the Republicans’ Senate takeover opened the door for congressional approval.

    This is a right step for freedom even though the 2nd amendment is really all one needs to carry guns. Plus anything that the Brady Campaign calls "Evil" is generally a good pro-freedom idea. Personally I would like to see this bill allow national open carry as well but that's just how politics works.

    NY is a may issue state - and in truth it's largely "don't issue." You expect different?


    “Times Square is different than rural Wyoming, and our police don’t need even law abiding citizens having the right to carry guns,” Schumer said.
    I'd love to ask the esteemed Senior Senator to justify that statement. He also needs a geography lesson. NY is 19,000,000 square miles in area. Times Square is about 0.5 square miles.

    Just like any May Issue state. When I was station in California as a Marine MP. I was denied a permit because "I didn't have sufficient training"

    California and NY run neck to neck in the harshness of their gun laws in practice. It is literally impossible to justify a carry permit in NYC and virtually impossible in the surrounding counties. About the only people who get them are retired cops and those who are politically connected. The average person has zero chance.

    My permit only allows me to carry when hunting and when traveling to where I'm hunting or going to the range.

    Once you get away from the city and it's suburbs it becomes somewhat easier but it's still at the whim of some local official.

    The law would be struck down by the SCOTUS even if it were enacted, but have at it.

    No. Local governments should have the right to exercise discretion regarding issuing these permits.
