Councilmen Oppose City Gun Resolution

Councilmen Oppose City Gun Resolution – While most City legislators have taken aim at protecting the City’s stringent gun laws, two Queens councilmen have put more lax gun laws in their sights.  Queens Councilmen Dan Halloran (R-Whitestone) and rising GOP star Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park) have joined Staten Island Republicans Vincent Ignizio and James Oddo to oppose a Council resolution that voiced its displeasure with a bill approved in the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives.  The bill would allow a resident of one state who has a license to carry a concealed handgun to carry that gun in a different state, regardless of individual state law. State gun-control laws vary widely, and New York State, particularly New York City, has among the toughest gun-ownership restrictions in the country.
