In debate over a bill that would allow carry permit holders to carry legally in any state with "shall issue" concealed carry laws, New York Senator Charles Schumer said this:
If you walk down the street in New York ... you can have the solace of knowing that if someone has a gun on them they've gone through a rigorous police background check. After this bill, you can have no such comfort," Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday.
Actually, in the New York (city especially) that I've visited, if someone is carrying a gun, they are most likely a street thug, not a carry permit holder. I don't know what New York Mr. Schumer is talking about, but it's not the one the Mets, Yankees, and Bills call home!
Never mind the fact that any carry permit IS done with a rigorous police background check in any state that issues them.
