Assemblyman Angelo J. Morinello applauded the clarification of the intent of the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (A.3005-C) as it pertains to exceptions for those who carry a weapon in sensitive locations. These newly defined exceptions include but are not limited to reenactors, those participating in military ceremonies, funerals and honor guards. With this clarification, honorable military forts such as Fort Niagara will be granted the exception.
“I am pleased to know that Fort Niagara, the oldest continuously occupied military site in North America, will be able to display their year-round, family-friendly historic events along with all historical landmarks,” Morinello said. “Fort Niagara is filled with rich history that is showcased through live reenactments that my constituents and I have embraced for decades.
“These events should continue to be supported in their entirety, and any bill that diminishes them is taking away from history. With that being said, I am pleased Fort Niagara is able to remain an educational and historical landmark in its entirety.”
