In the closing days of the legislative session, negotiations are taking place between Democratic Governor David Patterson’s Administration and legislative leaders on numerous proposals, including the Governor's gun control package.
This package targets law-abiding gun owners and licensed gun dealers. The NRA strongly opposes this measure. 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. The plan would also require licenses for employees of gun stores and grant the State Police broad authority to impose regulations on licensed dealers and gunsmiths.
