New York: Legislature Convenes for its 2017 Legislative Session

On Wednesday, January 4, the New York State Legislature began its 2017 Legislative Session.  Several gun control bills had already been introduced by the end of the first day, and dozens more are expected by the end of session.  Despite failed attempts to pass microstamping for over a decade, anti-gun lawmakers in Albany are once again trying to pass this unworkable, anti-gun legislation.  S.470, sponsored by state Senator Jose Peralta, would do nothing to improve public safety as microstamping is easily circumvented by common household tools.  The bill however, would severely impact honest, law-abiding gun owners by driving up the price of firearms and ammunition.  Please contact your Assemblyman and Senator, respectfully urging them to oppose S.470 and also vote to repeal the SAFE Act.


It is important that gun owners and sportsmen across the state of New York stay actively involved throughout the New Year as well as stay-tuned to NRA-ILA email alerts and www.NRAILA.org as the session progresses.

Your NRA-ILA will continue to work hard to promote and protect your Second Amendment rights, and keep you updated on the status of legislation impacting your Second Amendment rights in New York.
