Well, the "urban versus rural" myth is EXACTLY what Suffolk County police use to justify their "to and from range" administrative restriction. I sat at a table where three of us were directly told by the Suffolk County Police Commissioner's loyal servant that the population density of Suffolk is too high, and the average handgun owner is too irresponsible to allow for civilian concealed carry. The only civilians that are allowed to concealed carry are retired LE. We can only hope that the national reciprocity law passes and gives them all a good smack down.
Justification for infringing on a fundamental right should be backed up with facts and not speculation. Here are some areas where CCW is allowed that have population densities greater then those found in Suffolk County (population per square mile)...
Suffolk County 1,639 and the relatively highly populated Town of Islip 3,064.
At face value their argument doesn't hold water.
