House passes reciprocity

The House passed CCW reciprocity yesterday.  The final vote was 231 to 198 in support.

The New York delegation voted as expected with the latest lame attempt at intimidating Lee Zeldin accomplishing nothing.

The vote was less than expected with the House Liberty Caucus opposing it based upon the “Fix NICS” amendment. I think NICS is a waste and should be scrapped, but I do not believe this amendment should be a deal-breaker.

Here is a press release from Elise Stefanik explaining her supportive vote.

Here is some PSH from Cy Vance expressing his (phony) outrage at the bill.

The Governor too was angry:

“The appalling House vote for concealed carry reciprocity puts all New Yorkers at risk. This legislation would let individuals from out-of-state convicted of certain crimes carry hidden, loaded weapons in New York, in violation of New York’s much better, safer law. Only the NRA could propose something so ill-considered, dangerous and vile.

“New York passed the strongest gun safety measures in the country, and instead of joining the fight against senseless gun violence, Washington is trying to make New York and the rest of the nation less safe.”

He’s pissed because he went all in on gun control thinking it was a political winner when, in fact, it turned into a real stinker for him.

New York Democrats went on the attack, but their aim was off:

New York Republicans never learn. You gain nothing by pandering to Democrats. They will attack you no matter how you vote.

    OK Jacob, GR8! I hope it goes all the way. I don’t particularly care about carrying myself, but enjoy pissing off the scumbags.
