There's slightly less than 1500 carry permits issued in the city, the vast majority (something like 900+) are retired NYPD.

I wonder........does NYFC honor LEOSA? If not, then the city is already guilty of federal crimes.

I propose a compromise: CCW will be implemented & enforced as each state sees fit(leaving the federal law on inter-state transportation of firearms, unloaded and cased, intact), if the States can do likewise with marriage and abortion.
