New York: An Event You Don’t Want to Miss
Posted on February 15, 2013
Save the date! On February 28th, the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association (NYSRPA) will have its 2013 Lobby Day and Rally. New Yorkers are encouraged to attend to show support of your firearm freedoms in New York and your opposition to the recent back-room decisions by your state lawmakers and Governor Cuomo that dealt away your rights.
Your Second Amendment rights are under attack in Albany, and your state Senator needs to hear from you TODAY. Exploiting tragedy, Cuomo has launched an assault on your constitutionally protected civil liberties and will stop at nothing to make sure your other elected officials join him in shredding the U.S. and New York Constitutions that they are sworn to uphold. Proving he has truly missed the mark when it comes to effective solutions to violent crime, Cuomo outlined yesterday a laundry list of recycled gun control proposals that only target and punish those who already obey the law! These measures have failed across the country -- and have already failed in New York. Anti-gun lawmakers are teaming with Cuomo to make sure you DON’T have a voice and that bills are quickly passed before the public has an opportunity to resist. Even though this legislative session has only just begun, these bills can be introduced and voted on as early as Monday. Stand up for your Second Amendment rights and make your voice heard now before it is too late. Please contact your state Senator TODAY, and respectfully ask him or her to oppose legislation that does nothing more than target law-abiding gun owners.
Next Wednesday, the New York Assembly and Senate will convene for the 2013 legislative session. Anti-gun Governor Andrew Cuomo has expressed his desire to make gun control a top legislative agenda item. Gun owners should pay particular attention to his State of the State address next week. Your NRA-ILA has been closely monitoring and preparing to fight these extreme and senseless restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of New Yorkers. These proposals do nothing except criminalize law-abiding gun owners, target shooters and hunters, and do nothing to prevent crime or impact public safety.
In light of the egregious law passed at the behest of Gov. Cuomo, using secret deals behind closed doors, eliminating public input and circumventing normal legislative processes, NRA is fully committed to its members and all gun owners in New York.
