On Monday, May 19, Governor David Paterson (D) outlined a proposal that he plans to introduce that targets law-abiding gun owners and licensed gun dealers. This measure is still under review by the NRA; however, already some portions of the proposal are of major concern. Two areas that we specifically oppose are those that would implement more requirements for pistol license applicants without making licenses more accessible to those who qualify, as well as a plan to require licenses for employees of gun stores and granting the State Police broad authority to impose regulations on licensed dealers and gunsmiths.

We will be sure to inform you when we have completed our analysis and will alert you as to when the bill has been officially introduced.
