Gen. Weirich was among more than a dozen district attorneys, legislators and law enforcement officials who gathered at the Millenium Hilton in New York City with Manhattan Dist. Atty. Cyrus R. Vance Jr. for a press conference announcing opposition to the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act (CCR).
“The CCR would be a tremendous step backward for the safety of citizens in every state of the union.” said General Weirich. “This legislation creates a forum-shopping environment for dangerous or questionable owners to bypass strong concealed-carry laws in one state for weaker laws in another state. This is a bill that everyone, especially responsible gun owners, should oppose.”
