DA McMahon speaks out against concealed-carry legislation

The bill also includes language from the Fix NICS Act of 2017, which would ensure agencies are reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
With the House of Representatives recently passing a sweeping concealed carrygun law, Connecticut's senior senator is urging his colleagues in the Senate to reject it.
"I think if you have a permit, you should be able to take your gun wherever you want", said Dane Canelli, of Catskill.
Supporters of the bill, which still must be approved by the Senate, say states recognize each others' drivers licenses and other permits, making concealed-carry permits the exception. And it would not establish a national standard for who is allowed to carry a hidden, loaded gun in public. Barletta has consistently supported concealed carry reciprocity.
Under current California law, it is incredibly hard to obtain a license to carry a hidden gun in a public place. Right now a person has to find out what the law says in each state that they are traveling in so they don't get arrested.
The bill would also allow such qualified individuals to carry concealed weapons on federal lands.
Beyond being a basic constitutional right, states that do not allow non-residents to carry concealed weapons leave these citizens in danger and with no real option for self-defense in instances of gun violence. "The Congressman voted to make the job of our law enforcement agencies more hard and to allow untrained and potentially risky individuals to carry concealed weapons in New Jersey".
"New York City's well-recognized success in the continued decrease in shootings and murder is in no small part a result of effective control of guns on our streets", said NYPD Commissioner James P. O'Neill.
Recognizing the sovereignty of states' rights has been a mantra of conservative Republicans for generations - it has been used to support racial segregation, voter disenfranchisement and anti-LGBT laws.
"If this law were to pass, someone with a gun permit from a state with low standards could legally carry a firearm in NY, even if their background would prevent them from legally obtaining a permit here".
Our senior senator pointed out that states such as North Carolina, Florida, Indiana, Tennessee, Michigan and Georgia, to name just a handful, have gun permit standards that are not as safe as NY and geographies that are much more rural than urban. And even if the gun owner refuses to depart, he or she would only be guilty of trespassing and not subject to more severe criminal penalties. Some states allow reciprocity, or recognition of other states' laws, and some don't.
