Faso votes to weaken gun laws

Dec 07, 2017 1:08 am
Rep. John Faso voted Dec. 6 to rip up New York's concealed carry gun laws. The House voted 231-198 in favor of the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017. The bill makes permits to carry a concealed weapon issued in one state valid in most other states as well. That takes away the right of individual states such as New York to determine what qualifications a person must meet before being allowed to carry a concealed firearm in its borders. Instead, the state with the least regulation makes policy for all other states, since its concealed carry rules would be law everywhere if the bill passes the Senate and is signed by the president.
