Oppose Federally-Mandated Concealed Carry, H.R.38/S.446

Concealed Carry Reciprocity (CCR), federal legislation introduced to Congress in 2017, would require New York and other strong-gun-law states to recognize the concealed carry permits of gun owners from all other states.  Since many other states have weak concealed carry laws, CCR would allow people who have not been through a background check or who have no permit at all to carry concealed weapons in New York and around the country.  CCR would also override state law prohibitions on guns in public places, such as bars and schools, and other reasonable safety measures that prevent dangerous people from carrying guns in public.  The NRA-backed CCR bills would endanger our citizens and police and let weak-gun-law states dictate national gun law policy by overriding strong state laws.

Support Safe Storage/Child Access Prevention


Nicholas Naumkin

The New York Child Access Prevention or Safe Storage Act, a.k.a. Nicholas’s Law, would require the safe storage of weapons in New York State not in the immediate possession or control of the owner.  The bill is named for Nicholas Naumkin, who was unintentionally shot and killed by a friend playing with his father’s unlocked gun. The Assembly passed the law in 2015, but the Senate failed to take up the measure.

Remove Firearms from Domestic Abusers

NYSThe Safe Homes Act, would authorize New York law enforcement to remove firearms found on the premises where there has been a report of domestic violence. The Domestic Violence Firearm Surrender bill, which would require New York law enforcement to remove guns from the possession of individuals convicted of a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence.

FederalThe Protecting Domestic Violence and Stalking Victims Act, would prohibit domestic abusers and stalkers from purchasing firearms or ammunition and close loopholes that allow abusers and stalkers access to guns. The Zero Tolerance for Domestic Abusers Act, is the House equivalent. The Lori Jackson Domestic Survivor Protection Act  would close loopholes pertaining to temporary restraining orders and dating violence. The Domestic Violence Gun Homicide Prevention Act would give states additional resources to remove firearms from domestic abusers.
