Hon. Senator Dean Skelos~Concealed Carry Act

Concealed Carry Act
Hon. Senator Dean Skelos
907 Legislative Office Building
Albany, NY 12247

Dear Senator Skelos,

Licensing officials in some New York State counties issue concealed carry
pistol permits, while officials in other counties issue restricted permits that
limit firearm use to sporting activities such as hunting, target shooting, or collecting. New York State law does not yet preclude such discretionary authority.
This arbitrary practice results in a stratification of rights, rewarding one class of citizens, while unfairly discriminating against another - based solely upon their county of residence.
The current policy clearly violates the spirit of equal protection under the law.
I support the act amending the penal law to remedy this disparity. I respectfully request that you support A6187/S3478: The Concealed Carry Act

Thank You,
