10 attorneys general oppose concealed gun carry permit law

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Attorneys general in New York and nine other states have written to U.S. Senate leaders urging them to stop legislation that would allow licensed gun owners to carry concealed firearms across state lines.

Letters sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., say the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act would restrict the ability to control gun permits inside their borders, forcing them to recognize permits from states with weak oversight, making it harder to prosecute illegal gun traffickers.

The other attorneys general included in the letter are from California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Nevada and Oregon, along with Pennsylvania’s attorney general-elect.
