Defeating the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

Strong state gun laws are under attack.

Legislation pending in the U.S. House and Senate would require every state – including New York – to let people from states with weak gun laws carry concealed firearms while they are visiting. The Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (CCRA) would make any state-issued permit or privilege to carry concealed weapons valid everywhere – undermining public safety in some of America's most celebrated neighborhoods and tourist attractions.

The Manhattan District Attorney's Office is working to defeat the CCRA in Congress, and if necessary, we will defeat it in the courts.
