Hope for NY
Assembly bill A06187 looks very promising for New Yorkers.
I hope everyone will support this bill and help NYS get on par with other "shell issue" states.
Establishes a license for a pistol or revolver shall be issued to have and
carry concealed, without regard to employment or place of employment and
without judicial discretion on whether proper cause exists for the issuance
thereof; requires the police authority in the locality where an application is
made for a license to carry, possess, repair and dispose of firearms to conduct
a search of the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).

I have my doubts but it is really nice to see that there are some people in N.Y. that are trying to instill some common sense in our laws.

Here's a question: NYC has its own carry permit and won't recognize NYS's permits.If they're truly separate, then a strictly NYS permit should be voted on by only reps from areas that recognize NYS permits, right? That would mean the NYC reps would not be able to vote on this?
I would think w/o the NYC libs voting, the upstate reps have a shot a getting this passed. They should also allow non-residents who don't work or own property in NYS to get a permit also.
I saw Sheldon Silver's name at the top. Isn't he the guy that blocked Jessica's Law from coming to a vote?
That's the problem with these committees, if you have the chairman opposed to something, they won't let it through no matter what.

I would like to see the following bill put into law in NY.
" SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section 1. Adds a new subdivision 17 to Section 837 of the Executive
Law as it relates to the functions, powers and duties of the Division
of Criminal Justice Services to require the Division to promulgate, in
consultation with the Superintendent of the State Police, a
standardized publication of general information defining the term
"concealed" and establishing guidelines on where and when a concealed
weapon may not be carried pursuant to any applicable state or federal
law, rule or regulation. Such publication shall be provided to county
licensing officers for distribution to any person receiving a
concealed carry permit and upon the request of any person who
possesses such permit pursuant to Section 400 of the Penal Law.
Right now it's "You have a pistol and a permit, Great, you are now on your own to interpret the law on your own."
Nowhere on my unrestricted permit is the word concealed. I will continue to carry concealed as I have for many years but I would something in black and white rather than the varied hearsay answers I have heard from LEO's, gun dealers and the agencies that issue the permits.

I believe in miracles and it will take one to get this law passed by the NYS legislature. The powers that be in NYC, Nassau and Suffolk Counties will fight it with all the taxpayer money available to them.

Many years ago, I would not have believed that the majority of the States would now be Shall issue, and that I would possess a Michigan license that made it legal for me to carry a concealed pistol in 36 States.
Every one of the States that has converted to Shall issue has had to start somewhere. While it may be more difficult in some States than in others, the progress we've made shows there is hope.
I do hope that all of you who live in New York and are certain this has no chance are at least contacting your State Legislators and urging their support of the bill. Might also be good to send a note of support to the Bill's Sponsors and Writers.
Best of luck to the people of New York.

It is times like this that make you wonder. Now NY has 1 pro gun vote and that's Gillibrand. If she is to survive the onslaught from McCarthy and the likes to unseat her in the primary she will vote for this bill. But unfortunately NY is a very Democratic anti-gun state, and I know this bill will not pass. Me being a LEO wishes everyone can carry concealed, then I can open up the NY times and not see "Three people shot in two hours" stories anymore.
One more step and it's on!

That is excellent logic but you are, after all, dealing w/NY politicians.

The Senate now has the same bill listed under S 3478.
Please keep the calls, emails up to the rep's showing that these bills are wanted by the people.
