State Senator Sue Windels (D-19) has introduced Senate Bill 49, which requires mandatory storage of all firearms. This legislation would force adults to put all their firearms under lock and key or face an undetermined misdemeanor if that firearm is later used in a suicide or crime. This dangerous bill renders homeowners defenseless and gives criminals a clear advantage in home invasions. If passed, SB49 would add to the already cumbersome bureaucracy that gun shops, gun shows, or anywhere else firearms are sold, by requiring them to post a sign informing gun-owners that they must lock up their guns.
No hearing date has been scheduled in the Senate Committee on State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee.
Please contact the members of the Committee today and respectfully urge them to oppose SB49.
