A public hearing has been scheduled for August 7, 2006, for Introductory Local Law No. 3 that would require any person who sells, possesses or transports any air pistol or air rifle to obtain a license and pay an annual fee in the City of White Plains. Any violation of this local law will be a misdemeanor and may require payment of a fine or even result in imprisonment!
Mayor Joseph Delfino (R) and the Common Council of the City of White Plains have proposed this anti-gun local law that would effect both businesses and owners of air pistols and air rifles, also known as BB or pellet guns.
To stop this proposed anti-gun legislation, attendance at this public hearing is needed!
According to the agenda, the public hearing for Local Law No. 3, will be the first item addressed at the Common Council meeting. The public hearing is August 7, 2006, at 7:30 p.m. to be held at the Council Chambers on 255 Main Street.
