Illinois AG among those opposed to gun permit law
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – Attorneys general in Illinois and nine other states are asking U.S. Senate leaders to stop legislation that would let licensed gun owners carry concealed firearms across state lines.
Letters sent to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., say it would restrict states’ ability to control gun permits inside their borders, forcing them to recognize permits from states with weak oversight.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says 68 percent of the guns used in New York crimes last year were traced to other states.
