Daily Courier-Observer | St. Lawrence County legislators want county sheriff to issue pistol permits

CANTON — St. Lawrence County legislators decided Monday night to continue their long-running battle against the restrictive pistol permit policy used by County Court Judge Jerome J. Richards.

At Monday night’s Operations Committee meeting, the board directed County Attorney Stephen D. Button to explore whether the authority to issue pistol permits can be extended to County Sheriff Kevin M. Wells.

Does Your Representative Support Concealed Carry Reciprocity? | Current Alerts


(note: as of this posting, Rep. Elise Stefanik is NOT listed as a Co-Sponsor)

Urge Your Rep. to Cosponsor HR 923!With your help over the past month, we have been able to get several dozen new cosponsors to legislation that will protect Constitutional Carry and reciprocity.

The bill is HR 923, and it now has over 80 cosponsors. This legislation will protect your right to carry concealed outside of your home state, whether you live in a Constitutional Carry state or not.

But the fact that it would protect citizens from Constitutional Carry states — enabling these gun owners to carry around the country without getting permits — is what makes HR 923 THE BEST reciprocity bill in the House of Representatives.  Currently, there are 11 states that have permitless carry, and even more states are looking to join the “Constitutional Carry” club.

This is why your help is needed.
