    Exclamation Anti-Gun Measures to be Heard in New York General Assembly!

    Make Your Voice Heard Today!

    Several anti-gun measures pending action on the State Assembly floor will be considered as early as Monday, April 14.

    Assembly Bill 6525A, sponsored by State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-88), would create new sales and reporting requirements for licensed firearms dealers and require dealers to carry a minimum of $1,000,000 of liability insurance.

    Assembly Bill 9819A, authored by State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel (D-16), would seek to ban the sale of semi-automatic handguns not equipped with so-called "microstamping" technology. The bill requires all semiautomatic pistols sold in the state to microstamp an array of characters that identify the make, model, and serial number of the pistol on the firing pin, which would copy the characters onto the cartridge case upon firing.

    Assembly Bill 7331, sponsored by State Assemblyman Matthew Titone (D-61), would expand the ban on semi-automatic “assault weapons”, as well as require the ballistic “fingerprinting”(registration) of all semi-automatic “assault weapons” owned prior to a specified date.

    Assembly Bill 3451, introduced by State Assemblyman David Koon (D-135), would expand New York’s failed ballistic imaging program.

    Assembly Bill 2772, authored by State Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington (D-3), would ban the sale, use or possession of any firearm with a bore diameter .50 caliber or larger. This bill would require gun owners in possession of these firearms to surrender them to law enforcement.

    Assembly Bill 829, sponsored by State Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-4), would prohibit the sale of any handgun that doesn’t contain a childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into the design of the handgun.

    Assembly Bill 76, sponsored by State Assemblyman Harvey Weisenberg (D-20), would require the mandatory storage of all firearms.

    Assembly Bill 3447, introduced by State Assemblyman David Koon (D-135), would ban the sale or possession of frangible ammunition.

    Assembly Bill 9543, authored by State Assemblyman Michael Gianaris (D-36), would require purchasers of antique firearms to undergo a background check.

    Please contact your State Assembly Member today at (518) 455-4100 and respectfully urge him or her to vote "NO" on these NRA-opposed measures. To find your Assembly Member, click here.

    Okay the rest of these are the typical junk you would see coming out of NY, MA, NJ or CA. But this one? Are they serious?!?! Why the heck would you ban Frangible??? Because it is designed to break-up on impact?!? I'd love to know how many people are killed annually in NY with frangible ammo.

    Many gunowners in New York State including members of my local shooting clubs voted for the treasonous democrats that control the New York State Assembly. Many feel the proposed laws won't affect them and they don't want to go against their union. You could run Jeffrey Dahmer on the Democrat line in this state and he would be swept into office. This is only the beginning from the democrats in the New York State Assemby with the election coming up and the republications in the state senate controlling it by only 2 seats. New York State gunowners are holding on to our gun rights by 2 seats.

    Do these people look up from feeding from the public trough to see that these failed measures like microstamping and ballistic imaging DO NOTHING to combat crime or prevent BGs from getting firearms?

    What a bunch of morons...

    OK. Now what I would like to see is CA, MA, NY and NJ just succeed from the union. Maybe Washington, DC, too.

    Oh I could go along with this. We wouldn't have the rest of the country blaming us for all of the social ills that keep cropping up even in places like NY and DC. Except that California pays for most of the nations excesses through it's taxes and the rest of the nation can't let that funding source go. (Ca is the worlds 5th (6th?) largest economy and pays a ton of money to the FedGov.)

    We may be nuts here in California, but we're useful nuts that the rest of the country can't live without. Maybe we need a fence along the Ariz/Nev/Or border to keep the riff-raff in?

    As a lifelong CA resident, I feel for those in NY and other states that are getting the same garbage legislation we've had. FWIW, in CA, the blame for this rests on our Dem lawmakers who have gerrymandered the district borders to ensure their elections.

    Two constructive suggestions to counter these legislative actions:

    1) Quit pretending that if it isn't in your backyard, it won't affect you. I heard that a lot when CA gun owners were fighting microstamping. Now that it passed here, the anti's are using CA to enable their success in other states. We're in this as a whole or we'll be dissected like road kill.

    2) Build coalitions. Think about other groups who are under similar pressures to your own. Individually, you may not have the numbers for either group to succeed. But, if you coordinate with the other group(s), you all join to fight for EACH group's goals. Organize and coordinate, just like the individual 13 colonies did to defeat King George. None would have stood a chance alone, but together they did succeed.
