The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
You know automatically DC , New York, Chicago, New Jersery, and California in particular want " control " because they feel they are the only one's who "know best " for the populace, and want to be the one's to control and dictate what they will allow and won't.
That's about the only reason (idiots like these) that I would support the Fedl recriprocity bill.

Well New York...I will never ever ever visit you & I am ok with that....
Or maybe he just doesn't understand that reciprocity means you follow the laws in the state you're visiting. He's just an NY AG, what does he know about following laws?
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
I am 59 yrs. old and was born and raised in NY state.
Though many Gun restriction laws have been in effect there since before I was born, there has been a "sea change" since the 1960s.
ALL INDIVIDUAL FREEDOMS have come under attack by NYs own elected and appointed representatives.
The taxes are incredibly high ( necessary to support the welfare state ) and everything is becoming state regulated in ways the NAZIS never dreamed of.
Thank God I moved to PA about 6 yrs. ago

If national CCW Passes, I'm going to be in the Big Apple...never.
I still don't like going.

IT'S OUR RIGHTS>THEY WANT TO WRONG
Right there is where the spin started....Specifically, it would force nearly every state in the Union -- including those, like New York, with reasonable restrictions on firearm ownership and transport, that are essential to public safety -- to abandon its own gun laws by allowing out-of-state visitors to carry concealed firearms based on their home state's less safe laws, rather than those of the state they are entering.
How many times does this crap need to be discussed.
It (the 2A) is not enumerated by Constitution for the Federal Govt to control or for that matter any State. It is a law that was agreed on by our founders as being absolute and was never supposed to have regulations such as licensing and other draconian controls placed on it. Argue with me if you want to but I bring substance.

Look at how well reciprocity works in the realm of drivers licenses. I have to wonder how many Montanans and Vermonters hurt NY residents with their cars versus the other way around, be it on an absolute or appropriate percentage basis.
Far more people running loose with lethal automotive weapons than with guns, but no one seems to think that license reciprocity is a problem with regard to driving privileges.

I regularly go to NYC, DC, and Atlantic City, NJ to hang out. I don't carry, and I don't really consider it a big deal. I like the idea of living in a red state where people are allowed to carry guns, but I'm not afraid of going anywhere in the country. My priorities must be messed up.
Maybe the NY AG should concentrate on what is happening in NY...and reel-in the mayor of NYC. You deal with your problems, we'll deal with ours. I'd love to see someone snap some cuffs on Bloomberg for the garbage he's pulled with his "sting operations".
Being from CT (originally)...I loathe NYC, NY, NJ, and MA for their idiotic gun laws (CT ain't all that either)--but you would think where our republic started they would embrace our freedom...instead, they trample on our rights and feel the need to tell the rest of us how we should live and to ask permission to exercise a right.
In Virginia, there is no such problem.
