A03719 Memo:

BILL NUMBER:A3719

TITLE OF BILL:  An act to amend the penal law, in relation to allowing
individuals duly licensed out-of-state to carry a pistol or firearm to
carry such weapon within the state for a limited duration

PURPOSE  OR  GENERAL  IDEA  OF  BILL:  Relates to allowing individuals
licensed out-of-state to carry a  pistol  or  firearm  to  carry  such
weapon within the state for a limited duration.

SUMMARY  OF  SPECIFIC  PROVISIONS:  Section  1 amends the penal law by
adding a new section 400.15, which prescribes reciprocity  with  other
states.

Subsection  1  of  section  400.15  prescribes  that  any  person duly
licensed to carry a pistol or firearm by another  jurisdiction  within
the  United  States  shall  he allowed to carry such pistol or firearm
within New York State for a period of time not to  exceed  one  month.
Subsection  2  of  section  400.15  prescribes  the  requirements  for
carrying a licensed pistol or firearm within the state.

Section 2 contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: After a recent incident  involving  a  Marine  who  was
arrested for unknowingly violating New York's gun laws, it seems clear
that  there  needs  to  be  a  change  to  address  this problem. This
individual held a valid concealed carry permit and while visiting  New
York,  this individual was under the impression that it would he legal
to bring such firearm. This is not the only story involving arrests of
out-of-state visitors volunteering that they had a firearm.

Individuals who obtain the proper license to carry a pistol or firearm
within any state  within  the  United  States  of  America  should  be
lawfully  allowed  to  carry such weapon when visiting New York State.
This legislation would amend the penal law allowing  reciprocity  with
other states on individuals who properly hold a license for carrying a
pistol  or  firearm  to  enter into New York State for a period of one
month.
