New York: Today's Senate Committee Agenda Contains Anti-Gun Proposals

The deeply flawed SAFE Act remains strongly opposed by law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in New York State, and yet lawmakers in Albany continue to push for more gun control.  New York already has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, but the assault on the constitutional rights of New Yorkers continues in 2015. 

The Senate Codes Committee will be meeting today, April 28, at 1:00 p.m.  Among the bills on their agenda are two anti-gun proposals:

Senate Bill 2050, sponsored by state Senator Daniel Squadron (D-26), would ban .50 Caliber rifles which are almost exclusively owned by collectors and competitive shooters.  Anti-gun legislators have never been able to demonstrate cases where this gun has been used in a crime.  This legislation would have zero impact on public safety and would do nothing but add insult to injury to the state’s already beleaguered firearms community. 

Senate Bill 2491, sponsored by state Senator Liz Krueger (D-28), would force gun owners to lock up their guns in the home which would only give criminals an advantage. This legislation is dangerous in that it renders firearms useless in self-defense situations. S.2491 would create six new crimes within article 265 of the penal law and creates felony penalties.   Every household is different and firearms storage should be a matter of personal responsibility not mandated by legislation.

Please contact members of the Senate Codes immediately and respectfully ask them to oppose these two anti-gun bills.  Contact information for members of the Senate Codes Committee is provided below.
