Local Gun-Carrying Restrictions May Be Wiped Out Under Trump




From The­Guardian - If Con­gress pass­es a fed­er­al right-to-car­ry law, New York tourists could find them­selves able to car­ry con­cealed weapons around the city

With Don­ald Trump in the White House, tourists from oth­er states may soon be able to bring their guns to shops of Fifth Avenue, the plaza at Rock­e­feller Cen­ter and oth­er New York City sights.

Advo­cates say they expect Con­gress to final­ly pass a sweep­ing gun rights law that could dis­man­tle local gun-car­ry­ing restric­tions in states includ­ing New York, New Jer­sey, Mary­land, Cal­i­for­nia and Hawaii.

These changes could come soon. If Con­gress pass­es a fed­er­al right-to-car­ry law, it’s “cer­tain­ly pos­si­ble” that with­in a year or two, New York tourists might be able to car­ry a con­cealed weapon as they tour the city, said Robert Spitzer, a gun pol­i­tics expert at SUNY Cort­land.

Trump, who him­self has a per­mit to car­ry a con­cealed firearm, has already endorsed a new reci­procity law as part of his gun rights plat­form. Con­cealed-car­ry per­mits from one state “should be valid in all 50 states”, his plat­form reads, call­ing the pro­pos­al “com­mon sense”.

Gun con­trol groups call nation­al reci­procity “a threat to pub­lic safe­ty” and have pledged to fight the leg­is­la­tion, as they have done before. But it’s not clear how suc­cess­ful they may be against a unit­ed gov­ern­ment, with Repub­li­can majori­ties in the House and Sen­ate and a Repub­li­can pres­i­dent.

Gun rights advo­cates say the law would be a major vic­to­ry for civ­il rights. Pass­ing nation­al car­ry reci­procity is a top pri­or­i­ty for the Nation­al Rifle Asso­ci­a­tion, one of Trump’s most loy­al sup­port­ers through­out his cam­paign.
