AG Schneiderman Statement On Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

The Latest: GOP-led House passes NRA-backed gun bill | The Tribune

Called "the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act", the bill was proposed by Doug Collins of Georgia in January and sponsored by Richard Hudson of North Carolina and amends Title 18 of the US Code, "to provide a means by which nonresidents of a State whose residents may carry concealed firearms may also do so in the State". Mikie Sherrill, the most successful fundraiser now facing Frelinghuysen, quickly issued a statement opposing his vote on the bill. Number two, her tweet ignores the fact that concealed carry permit holders are among the most law-abiding of law-abiding citizens. There is a broad national consensus on how to license drivers that does not exist with concealed-carry permits. Other states, which have "shall" issue instead of "may" issue clauses regarding concealed carry permits, are much more permissive.

The bill, which was a top priority for the National Rifle Association, was blasted by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who led the state's effort to pass the controversial gun control law called the SAFE Act in 2013. Democrats are largely opposed to the bill.

Our senior senator pointed out that states such as North Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, Michigan and Georgia, to name just a handful, have gun permit standards that are not as safe as NY and geographies that are much more rural than urban. Certain states use stricter processes for issuing permits, with some states requiring mandated safety training before a permit can be issued.

Rep. John Faso, R-Kinderhook, Columbia County, said the bill adds uniformity to the patchwork system of concealed-carry laws in the nation. Let's be clear: "These politicians are trading our safety for political contributions from the gun lobby".

The FIX NICS Act (SB2135) gives incentives to federal agencies and states to improve their reporting of records into the National Instant Criminal Background Check System - and hold them accountable if they don't. "H.R. 38 is a common-sense solution". In New York, a concealed-carry license can be applied for in the county where the applicant lives based on stringent criteria, but the state does not recognize licenses from other states. "They say it will eliminate the confusion of varying state-by-state laws and protect the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Americans".
