Officials: Congressional gun bill would bring more weapons to New York City


Quote
There was a show of force in Lower Manhattan Tuesday by law enforcement officers from all over the country, urging Congress to reject a controversial new proposal that would force states -- including New York -- to honor concealed gun permits issued in other states.

The legislation would supersede New York's current gun laws, as state gun laws vary widely across the U.S. Some states issue permits to convicted felons, people wanted on warrants, and those subject to orders of protection. Twelve states do not require permits at all - meaning that residents of those states may carry weapons in New York without ever having a background check.



Well bulls---, it's against the law for a felon to possess a firearm except in special circumstances.

Shipwreck; All,

It's LONG past time for a carry concealed license from any of the 50 States to fall under the Full Faith & Credit provisions of the US Constitution, just as marriage/drivers/professional licenses/etc. MUST be recognized in EVERY State.

Personally, I hope that they do this needful task SOON, as I sometimes travel to/through States, whose laws are more OPPRESSIVE than Texas laws.

yours, satx

would like to see the word "strict" replaced with "oppressive" (otherwise, I agree)

Tango,

Have you noted that those States/cities that have the OPPRESSIVE & UNCONSTITIONAL GUN LAWS are all DAMNYANKEE States or on the LEFTIST coast??
