New York: Gun Control Bill Defeated in Senate Committee

New York:  Gun Control Bill Defeated in Senate Committee

On Monday, March 28, the Senate Codes Committee voted along party lines to defeat a mandatory storage bill that would have forced gun owners to lock up their firearms, thereby rendering those firearms useless in self-defense situations.  S.04291, sponsored by state Senator Liz Krueger (D-28), would have imposed felony penalties for failing to keep guns under lock and key.  The Assembly has passed this legislation in previous years, but it has stalled in the Senate.  Your NRA-ILA also lobbied against this bill last year when it was defeated in a Senate Committee.  The Assembly still has a pending companion version, A.00053a, sponsored by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-88).

Gun safety and storage is a matter of personal responsibility and every person’s situation is different.  Gun owners who live in high crime areas, who want access to a firearm for personal protection, should not be forced to give criminals the upper hand.  This bill could have drastic, unintended consequences.  Unsatisfied with the harsh SAFE Act, anti-gun politicians continue their onslaught in Albany against law-abiding gun owners while failing to go after criminals. 

Despite the rhetoric from enemies of the Second Amendment in the Empire State, this bill is about more gun control and a political agenda, not public safety.  The National Rifle Association is the country’s leader in firearm safety with hundreds of thousands of certified gun safety instructors across the country. 

Please continue to follow NRA-ILA alerts for updates as we work to defeat the dozens of anti-gun bills that are introduced each session in New York.
