Join NYAGV and other activists and policy experts for the “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Forum,” a free community event on Thursday, September 7 in White Plains.
The forum will discuss the very dangerous legislation proposed in Congress, called Federal Concealed Carry Reciprocity (CCR). CCR would override state laws and require states to honor concealed carry permits of other states–no matter how weak their gun laws. If CCR is enacted, New York State would be forced to allow visitors from weak gun-law-states to carry hidden, loaded weapons onto streets and into public places, from Times Square to Westchester’s parks–and potentially even in schools and shopping malls.
Policy experts and activists will discuss the federal CCR bills (H.R. 38 and S. 446), their potential impact on Westchester, New York State and cities throughout the state, and discuss ways you can fight the gun lobby’s dangerous agenda.
