Glock, for the 125th Anniversary of the Statue of Liberty, made a beautiful engraved model. As a community we need goals, so I would suggest we’re not finished until you can lawfully carry the Statue of Liberty Glock at the actual Statue of Liberty.
We’re a long ways from that, even if HR822 passes. Currently there is a security screen at the Statue of Liberty ferry, run by the National Park Service. There’s no law against the carrying of firearms in National Parks under New York Law, that I know of, but the building they do the screening in is a federal facility, which are gun free zones. So even if HR822 passes, you won’t be able to carry to the Statue of Liberty.
So I guess you could say HR822 is a Statute of Liberty won’t enable you carry at the Statue of Liberty.
