National Reciprocity Helps ISIS

On Sunday, New York County District Attorney Cy Vance suggested Republican efforts to pass national reciprocity for concealed permit holders helps the Islamic State.

Speaking about Rep. Richard Hudson’s (R-NC) national reciprocity legislation–HR 38–Vance said, “this bill is supported, I’m sure, by ISIS.”

Vance said these things during an interview on AM 970 and the The Hill quoted Vance, saying, “It would be completely legal for a person to bring a loaded gun or guns in New York as long as it was legal to possess them in the person’s home state. A guy from Idaho, where there’s no permitting requirement whatsoever, could carry his gun into New York city loaded, into Times Square.”

He said that Congressional members supporting national reciprocity are “playing into the hand” of the Islamic State, and he pointed to the “ease” of buying guns in certain states in an attempt to bolster his point. For this reason he said, “ISIS is paying close attention to this [national reciprocity] bill as well.”

Of course, national reciprocity is not about purchasing guns; it is about mandating that all states recognize the rights of law-abiding Americans to carry guns for self-defense. Criminals are already carrying guns and terrorists are already using guns to kill innocents–see San Bernardino (December 2, 2015) and Orlando (June 12, 2016). National reciprocity simply levels the playing field by allowing law-abiding citizens to be armed in more states for the purposes of shooting back.

Vance went on to describe Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety as a “think tank” and credited it with showing the dangers of national recognition of the concealed carry permits of law-abiding citizens.

On December 13, 2014, Breitbart News reported that Everytown’s list of “100 School Shootings” since Sandy Hook included non-school shootings, shootings that did not occur, and accidental discharges of firearms that were legally possessed on campus.

    What an idiot. Criminals are already carrying loaded guns anywhere they want. It is only the law abiding citizen that is limited to where they can carry.

  • Trey D

    Let NY city split off into its own little fortress and the rest of us will watch as it is destroyed by terrorists, just like Paris and London. As a matter of fact, they can take California with them.

      Don’t kid yourself. Muslims are allowed to lie about ANYTHING to further the cause of Islam, or to save their own lives.

    Politicians are protected, why can’t the AMERICAN CITIZENS CARRY to protect families , People are afraid to leave their homes . The Politician are violating the 2nd Amendment

  • Bill Newcomb

    The DA has a back ground in what?? It sure isn’t History of the 2nd Amendment Counter Insurgency or action of Law biding Citizens. Criminals will get guns anyway, any time they want. We, the US Gun owners go by the Law of the Land and because of this you, the Government keeps punishing us. Go get a job you can understand, like packing chickens per box.

  • John Redman

    I think of how my terrier grabs and shakes a groundhog to death and see that as a fitting response to those having no respect for and the proclivity to interfere with my basic rights. Death to tyrants/bureaucrats everywhere for freer and more peaceful living.

  • Red Steiner

    I suspect Bloomberg contributes heavily to this fools “election campaign” every month. Where do those of his and Bloomberg’s ilk come from?

  • help_us_survive_this

    Do not look now Mr. Vance, but you are a total failure where cuns are concerned. If you take all the guns from the good guys then the crooks and cops will have all the guns. ISIS will dance in the street on our blood and then shoot you too. What you need to do you will not do. Time to replace you with someone who loves America and want it to be here for a long time. We the people are so tired of mamby pamby lawyers and do nothing DAs that get the crooks off, don’t process cases, let the good guys get burned and finally set themselves above the majority that We the People are contimplating going back to basics. You know, do away with the courts and lawyers and start over. You brought it on yourselves by ensuring that lawyers make the laws, enforce the laws and finally oversee the laws. There used to be 3 distinct division of government. Now we have lawyers, lawyers, and lawyers. Go firgure! Time to return to the basics. An Amendment needs to be forwarded and passed that restricts lawyers, attorneys or anyone with a legal degree from serving any public office. They may be allowed to advise, but not serve. THEn we will se true justice and fair and impartial trials. Thank you.

  • Big Larry

    One if I was from Idaho visiting N.Y bet your sweet xss I’d carry a loaded gun with me. But this bill does not do enough, Here in the moron state of California were not allowed to do crap with a gun so we would be restricted as well in liberal N.Y.

  • Juanito Ibañez

    Cyrus Roberts “Cy” Vance Jr. is a long-time, hard-core gun control advocate who was elected as Manhattan District Attorney on name recognition with his famous father, former Secretary of State for Jimmy Carter, Cyrus Roberts Vance Sr.

    Of COURSE he’s going to push such a bullshit piece of propaganda as that.

  • Fox

    “New York County District Attorney Cy Vance suggested Republican
    efforts to pass national reciprocity for concealed permit holders helps
    the Islamic State.”

    Aaaaaand, this wouldn’t be a potential problem at all, IF you libtards would stop allowing these blood-thirsty savage moslems murderers into our country, now would it?

  • Richard Moorer

    This is B S.. at it’s finest..it doesn’t give people legality to carry everywhere they want to. not a loaded gun in times square, etc. it’s about fairness for legal citizens to have the ability to drive in other states with them and also to be able to carry in legal places of the state they might travel..i carried from S.C. to Ky. through all those i had to travel thru.. Ky. recognizes all states permits..

  • Summer Rose Sutton

    Apparently when this New York District Attorney went to Law School, he skipped or missed the class regarding the United States Constitution and the 2nd Amendment of that Constitution. The wording in the 2nd Amendment specifically STATES and I quote “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a FREE State, the RIGHT of the people to KEEP AND BEAR arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”. Unquote. I capitalized the most important words, so he could see them. So what words of the 2nd Amendment does he or others not understand? What is meant by a Militia? Simply put, ANY able bodied Man or Woman CAN BE called to defend their State; or be Deputized to assist Law Enforcement Officers. That takes having a Firearm/s.
    It constantly amazes me that we have ANY Attorneys or politicians against our US Constitution and the 2nd Amendment, because they ALL swear or affirm to uphold and defend that Constitution.

  • Bill Newcomb

    Statements like this , the person is at ‘wits end’. Also, he must feel the current laws will not protect the American people or people of NYS. Terrorist will get firearms no matter what laws are in place, history show this. A person can get a NYC Permit. I had one for over 20 years. NYC has not been in the top 10 crime ( unless it has changed the passed few years) cities, Rudy Giuliani did that. But the right to own firearms and high crime are not connected, if anything crime rates are down where the 2nd Amendment is strongest. NYS & NYC are every anti gun and politico’s have used this for years to get ahead. But if you take a closer look at these people, you will find, If they felt pro gun would help them get to the White House , they would be selling Glocks in the steps the the Capital Building.
