NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The U.S. Senate will take up debate on the compromise gun control measure on Tuesday.
The bill, which was hammered out last week, would require background checks for most gun purchases. A limit on gun clips and a reinstatement of the federal assault weapons ban are not part of the measure because they do not have enough support to block a possible Republican filibuster.
Sen. Charles Schumer speaking on Sunday noted that there is still time for amendments to be introduced.
But he issued a warning to his senate colleagues that he will not stand for any proposals that would force New York to honor out-of-state concealed carry gun permits.
“Any person who has a permit, a concealed carry permit, in Wyoming could come to New York and carry it concealed even though it would be against our laws,” told reporters including WCBS 880’s Jim Smith. “In New York, there are great limits on when you can carry and where you can carry and how you can carry and all those would be undone.”
