A good sign but the people in the People's Republic of New York need to change their voting habits. As long as you aren't in the PRNYC, you just may have a chance of getting a CCW. There is a reason I won't live, vacation, or spend money in a PR state.
IE, any "May issue" state. May issue usually means fat chance of ever getting a CCW unless you are rich, a criminal, famous, or part of the political machine. Sounds too much like the People's Republicks across the pond, and the worker's para-dices south of the border. The ones with "death squads", disappearing dissidents, and rooms where the public can't hear your screams. Keep wasting your 'vacation with us' adds folks. I will never venture there.
We warned you in 1862!
