Gotta "love" Sen. Schumer and his hyperbole. He's hating on the Toomey bill. Of course CCRKBA was involved with the Toomey bill so they're going to relish his attack on it (just as I'm sure they're uncomfortable with gunners attack on them for it).

Here's CCRKBA's latest email on it.

New York Senator Charles Schumer’s remarks over the weekend about provisions that could be added to an alternative bill regarding background checks are “demonstrably false and delusional,” the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said today.

The perennially anti-gun Schumer told reporters that a concealed carry reciprocity amendment that may be offered to the alternative bill sponsored by Senators Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey – announced last week as a substitute for Schumer’s own draconian anti-gun background check bill – would make New York “much more dangerous.”

“This legislation could change Times Square into the OK Corral,” the senator asserted.

CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, who helped craft some of the language in the Manchin-Toomey alternative, said Schumer “once again cannot tell the difference between reality and his own extremist anti-gun rhetoric.”

“His opposition to any legislation that would benefit gun owners is obvious in the way he is trying to characterize the Manchin-Toomey proposal as a public safety disaster,” Gottlieb said. “Obviously he’s afraid of the alternative bill or he would not have taken the time to demonize it. Their bill provides for gun rights restoration, immunity from prosecution for selling a firearm later used in a crime, interstate sale of handguns and other gun rights benefits, which he opposes, and it prohibits gun registration, which he supports, and adds a 15-year felony prison sentence for government officials who violate the registration provision. In short, the alternative bill represents everything he hates.”

Gottlieb pointed to another Schumer remark that “doesn’t pass the smell test.”

Said Schumer: “To allow criminals to go to other states, get a permit for concealed carry and then carry their guns concealed here in New York…outrageous.”

“Senator Schumer knows that no criminal can travel to another state and get a carry license because law enforcement agencies would flag that person in a minute,” Gottlieb said. “When he throws around canards like that, it proves the desperation of his position. He will stop at nothing to prevent a reasonable alternative to his anti-gun extremism from gaining traction.”

Yeah, but Schumer isn't talking about criminals who might get a gun in another state, he is talking about otherwise law abiding citizens of any state who would only be criminals because they have a gun in NYC. It is just an example of the conflation of his twisted anti-gun logic and NY political arrogance. NY law says is is illegal to have a gun in NYC, so anyone carrying a gun in NYC is a criminal under NY law and federal reciprocity just immunizes these "criminals" from prosecution. He apparently thinks NY is the only state whose laws can not be nullified by federal law.

So... Schumer's believes that NYC laws are superior than federal laws, doesn't that mean KS and MO have said the same thing (their laws [outlawing suppressive/oppressive federal laws] are superior to federal laws) and if one cannot be challenged than neither can the others?

Sorry New York I have no intent to visit your State as long as you have Bloomberg, or any of your Anti-gun Schumers in office as well as that idiot Governor whose name I can't recall at this time.:(:banghead:

Not quite the same thing. Schumer is complaining that federal law nullifies state law. But it is a Constitutional provision that federal law are superior to state law so his complaint really has no merit. But NY law does not specifically seek to nullify federal law.

KS and MO laws, OTOH actively nullify federal law. Nullification is an assumed power of the states under the 10th Amendment*, that has been tested in the past but it has never been settled one way or the other if the power is legitimate. All tests in the past have ended in a compromise that avoided answering the question.

*Since it is not specifically denied to the states by the Constitution.

I'm not sorry, and I never plan on traveling to NY. If I am spending my money and my vacation time, it's gonna be with like minded folks in places I like to go. Been to NY State one time to visit my son when he lived there. He has since moved and I left nothing there worth going back for on my visit.

Anti-gun and a dislike for 16oz drinks just to start :-( Nope, not my kind of folks. Down South we have the Sonic Drive in and they sell the Route "44" drink. only problem is, by the time you get home your out of drink and have all that ice left. Hum, maybe another 12oz on top of that :-). It's none of the government's business, and I'm not overweight. I don't drink sodas often, but when I do... well, Nuff Said.

But when the government is paying for your healthcare, they will make it their business.

Now that's just plain funny. Before Obamacare the same prescription I was paying $15 a month for now cost me $90. I sure wish they would leave me alone, I can't afford them to pay for much more.

So, other than getting swarms of people with CC permits and showing that it doesn't end with "Blood in the streets" how do we fight that argument. The data is on the side of CC and as far as I know always has been but that argument just wont die.
