Last week, the New York Legislature wrapped up its 2012 regular legislative session with the microstamping mandate being blocked for the fifth consecutive year. Despite a last minute attempt by anti-gunners to push Assembly Bill 1157B through the Assembly by an 85 to 60 vote on June 19, the Senate rightfully refused to move this ill-conceived gun control scheme.
Rest assured, the anti-gun forces will be back next year in
Your NRA-ILA will continue to fight against these unproven technologies that do nothing to solve gun crimes, while only escalating the price of guns and ammunition. Rather than drive employers and jobs out of the state, legislative efforts should focus on enforcing the scores of gun laws already on the books.
