No I don't trust them when they start this stuff either. I didn't have to take a class or get a license for by big mouth. So if no license is needed to exercise the first I shouldn't need one for the second.
I also don't like the background checks. If someone has had the right to carry+vote revoked they 1 shouldn't be on the street 2. If they are in public they should pay an extra fee for their state ID and it should be marked. The fee is for maintaining the criminal data base. All I should have to do is show a valid state issued ID card.
When you fly into La Guardia or JFK, call Mayor Bloomberg and tell him you are carrying and want his advice regarding NY handgun law. New York is known for its hospitality to out-of-staters who come into their state carrying.
I'm in NYS and yeah I'm sorry to tell you there is no way I know of that you can carry here unless you have a NYS CC permit and you can't get one unless you live here. Also, you can't carry in NYC at all even if you do have a permit. In fact you can not even own a handgun unless you have a permit here much less carry it on your person. Trust me, we don't like it but as long as we are attached to NYC, I'm afraid that's how it is, we are way outnumbered and overpowered by NYC politics it bullies the entire state.
