Laundry List of Anti-Gun Bills Introduced in the Empire State

Friday, February 26, 2010

Please contact your lawmakers and urge them to oppose the laundry list of anti-gun bills pending consideration in Albany prior to the Assembly’s annual “gun day.”  The package includes the following bills:

  • Assembly Bill 801A and its Senate companion, S 1598A, would require five-year renewals on pistol licenses. 
  • Assembly Bill 1093 and its Senate companion, S 1715, would create liability for legal firearm retailers when criminals misuse firearms.
  • Assembly Bill 1275 and its Senate companion, S 1712, would outlaw the private sale and transfer of long guns.
  • Assembly Bill 1326 and its Senate companion, S 5228, would outlaw the sale of all handguns not equipped with so-called "child proofing" devices.
  • Assembly Bill 2881 and its Senate companion, S 2379, would ban the sale of common self-defense and hunting ammunition.
  • Assembly Bill 2884 would prohibit gun shows on public property.
  • Assembly Bill 2885 and Assembly Bill 2910 would establish standards for guns sold in the state and would allow the state police to prevent ANY firearm they deem unsafe from being transferred into the state.
  • Assembly Bill 3200 and its Senate companion, S 2953, would require ammunition coding or bullet serialization. 
  • Assembly Bill 3346 would outlaw affordable handguns commonly used for self-defense.
  • Assembly Bill 3477 and its Senate companion, S 1188, would expand the failed 10-year-old ballistic imaging program to include even more firearms.
  • Assembly Bill 4441 and its Senate companion, S 4338, would prohibit the manufacture, sale or transfer of handguns not equipped with so-called "smart gun" technology.
  • Assembly Bill 5844 and its Senate companion, S 3098, would prohibit keeping firearms available for self-defense in the home.
  • Assembly Bill 6157 and Assembly Bill 6294 and their Senate companion, S 4084, would drastically expand the state's ban on so-called "assault weapons" to include virtually all semi-automatic rifles and pistols that can accept detachable magazines.
  • Assembly Bill 6468B and its Senate companion, S 6005, would outlaw the sale of all semi-automatic handguns not equipped with so-called "microstamping" technology.
  • Senate Bill 4752 would ban certain firearms based upon bore diameter.

As the anti-gun agenda awaits activity, a few other measures deserve our support. They include Assembly Bill 5118A and its Senate companion, S 2430A, which would grant a tax exemption to conservation clubs and rod and gun clubs owning land having an assessed value of $500,000 or less. These bills are in the Assembly Real Property Tax Committee and the Senate Local Government Committee respectively. 

NRA-ILA also supports Assembly Bill 7463A and its Senate Companion, S 3299A, which would expand hunting opportunities by allowing the use of a rifle to hunt deer or bear in certain parts of Chautauqua County.  These bills are pending in the Assembly and Senate Environment Committees, respectively.  Also, Assembly Bill 10158 and its Senate companion, S7006, would expand hunting opportunities by allowing rifle hunting in certain parts of Ontario County.

Please contact your lawmakers and urge them to oppose the anti-gun bills pending in the Assembly and to support AB5118A/S 2430A, AB7463A/S 3299A in both the Senate and Assembly.
