Concealed Nation has an article, “What You Need To Know About The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act Of 2017.”

They have some issues with the bill:

“… Problem #1: A permit holder would only be able to carry in a state that, “has a statute that allows residents of the State to obtain licenses or permits to carry concealed firearms” OR “does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms by residents of the State for lawful purposes.” The problem with the above text is that it provides a strong incentive for restrictive states (like Maryland, New Jersey, Hawaii, New York & California) to prohibit concealed carry altogether …”

New York will never prohibit concealed carry.  The Sullivan Act was as much about graft as it was sticking it to the Italians.  Nobody wants to stop this gravy train.

“… Problem #2: “This [law] shall not be construed to supersede or limit the laws of any State that—(1) permit private persons or entities to prohibit or restrict the possession of concealed firearms on their property; or (2) prohibit or restrict the possession of firearms on any State or local government property, installation, building, base, or park.” What this means is that those middle-of-the-road states (like Oregon, Washington, Illinois and South Carolina) which likely won’t decide to eliminate concealed carry altogether, but also don’t necessarily want millions of visitors carrying guns in their state, will likely make it SUBSTANTIALLY more difficult to carry a gun in their state …”

New York’s licensing is already arbitrary while the NYPD just makes shit up.  This may be an issue elsewhere, but not locally.

Reciprocity bills have been around for over 20 years.  They don’t have to be perfect especially from a New York view to be a big plus for us because passing pretty much anything would open new legal and legislative avenues for us in the state.

    Jacob, we should also make a BIG issue of the elitism of Chucky Shmucky (as Levin calls him) who has been CARRYING A GUN ALL HIS LIFE while hysterical that “It goes against our NY values”. REALLY?? Then why do YOU do it you lying little hypocrite scumbag?? As ALWAYS, the “progressive” ruling elite are exempt. I call for HIM to give up HIS license as a gesture of decency!

    Neither Chuck nor his wife or daughters have pistol licenses. That is a long running internet myth. What he does have is some sort of marksmanship award from NRA he earned around the time he was in college. He used to keep it in his district office when he was in Congress and is very proud of it. He also did vote to make NY/NYC shall-issue back when he was in the Assembly.
