As anticipated, several anti-gun bills moved to the Assembly floor this week. A 673 creates the crimes of failure to store a firearm "safely" and criminally negligent storage of a firearm. A 2302 would prohibit the retail sale of a handgun which does not contain a "child proofing" or integrated safety device. A 2345 would impose new restrictions on firearms dealers. These measures are expected to be considered by the full Assembly as soon as Tuesday, May 24. Please contact your Assembly Member today and urge him/her to oppose A 673, A 2302, and A 2345!
A 4471 is now being considered in the Assembly Ways and Means Committee. A 4471 would ban the sale, use, and possession of .50 caliber firearms. Unfortunately, this anti-gun legislation is expected to pass out of Committee and on to the Assembly floor. Please also contact your Assembly Member today and urge him/her to oppose A 4471.
