These New York reps voted YES on Concealed Carry Reciprocity.

These New York reps voted YES on Concealed Carry Reciprocity. Tell them their vote to endanger New Yorkers won’t be forgotten!!
On December 6, the full U.S. House of Representatives voted to pass a very dangerous bill–the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (CCR) Act, which will now move to the Senate. Although this act was opposed by New York law enforcement and would override our strong gun laws, seven New York representatives voted YES!
If enacted, CCR will force New York to honor concealed carry permits issued by weak-gun-law states. Even out-of-staters with criminal convictions will be able to freely carry their hidden, loaded guns into New York communities and crowded, public spaces like Times Square.
Here are the reps that voted YES on this dangerous bill. Please contact them today and tell them that their vote endangered the safety of New Yorkers. And remind them that with their vote, they’ve lost your vote.

County: No gun shows planned at Westchester County Center in 2018

County: No gun shows planned at Westchester County Center in 2018

Posted: Nov 30, 2017 1:10 PM ESTUpdated: Nov 30, 2017 5:28 PM EST
Westchester County officials announced Thursday that gun shows will not be returning to the Westchester County Center in 2018.
Members of the County Board of Legislators passed a bill back in January that would have banned gun shows on county property, but the measure was vetoed by County Executive Rob Astorino.
A few days after the veto, Westchester hosted a gun show at the County Center in White Plains. Since then, there has been speculation that the county was going to host another show in 2018. In fact, the company that puts on the show had it on their schedule of events up until October.
It has since been taken down.
A county spokesman says there is no contract for a gun show at County Center next year, and one is not being authorized.
News 12 reached out to the organizers of the gun show at the Westchester County Center, but has not heard back so far.
