Earlier this week, Senate Bill 3098 was introduced in Albany and sent to the Senate Codes Committee. S3098’s companion bill, Assembly Bill 5844, is awaiting action in the Assembly Codes Committee.
S3098/A5844 would require households with children to store their guns in locked boxes with trigger locks installed. NRA safety classes teach that guns not readily needed for self-defense be stored unloaded and locked with ammunition locked separately. Moreover, this “one sized fits all” government mandate ignores the fact that many New York families own firearms for self-defense.
