Shame NY laws make it a felony when the federal law itself gives states the out as does Colorado and many others.

I appreciate the officer explaining in a well mannered and non threatening way that I needed to be aware of such things in this state..
we also always carry when camping here in NY, but again, its a felony to carry in a state park, anywhere in the state, bears, coyotes and potential homicidal lunatics not withstanding, so we'll have to reconsider where we camp from now on.... bob
Do the bears, coyotes, and potential homicidal lunatics not understand that the law says they can't go where you can't legally carry?
I CC'd for 20 years. Then I OC'd for 10 years. These days, it's about 90% CC, 10% OC. // As a Virginia Tech Alum, I say that tragedy was avoidable. Too bad the school's administration didn't learn from their mistakes.
