New York Anti-Gun Bills Advance: Your Help is Needed!

Friday, June 3, 2005

The Assembly approved several anti-gun bills last week. They include A 673, which creates the crimes of failure to store a weapon "safely" and criminally negligent storage of a firearm; A 2302, which would prohibit the retail sale of a handgun that does not contain a "child proofing" or integrated safety device; A 4471/S 2590, which would ban the sale, use, and possession of .50 caliber firearms; A 2345, which would impose new restrictions on firearm dealers; and A 2466, an expansion of the state’s ban on so-called assault weapons. These measures now move to the Senate. In addition, last Friday, Senator Frank Padavan (R-11) introduced S 5504, which is another bill to expand the state’s ban on so-called assault weapons. This bill is similar, but not identical to, A 2466. Please contact your State Senator today and ask him/her to oppose all of the above measures! You can reach your Senator by calling (518) 455-2800.

A 4853-A, which would allow the use of rifles for hunting in certain parts of the state, and A 6608, which would exempt shooting ranges already in existence from new local noise ordinances, are two NRA-supported measures in the New York Assembly. A 4853-A has been referred to the Assembly Rules Committee, and A 6608 is now in the Assembly Codes Committee. Please contact your Assemblymembers today and urge him/her to support A 4853-A and A 6608! Your Assembly member can be reached by calling (518) 455-4100. Finally, please make plans to join NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC) Rich Mullin (NY-22), and fellow NRA activists for a volunteer meeting on June 18, at 5:00 p.m. The meeting will be held at Gander Mountain in the Seminar Room, located at 528 Harry L. Drive, Johnson City, NY 13790. Please call Rich Mullin at (607) 757-9657, or e-mail David Decker at deckerdm@stny.rr.com with any questions.
