well that letter is politics .. I am always cautious of politicians. They work for the elections not the people at the end of the day.

Here is a revised letter,
To the Honorable Senator Alesi
My name is Jeff McSpadden, I live at ************St, Rochester, NY 14621 and I am a law abiding resident of New York and I am a Concealed Carry Permit holder.
It has come to my attention that the New York State legislature is going out of there way to limit or remove my right to self-defense and attack the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.
My main concern is the complete lack of thought and care with which several bills are being passed in the Legislature. Also I am very disappointed to see there are absolutely NO crime deterrent laws being passed with such enthusiasm.
Specifically Assembly Bill 6468 would ban the sale of all semi-automatic handguns not equipped with so-called Micro-stamping technology. The Companion Bill to A6468 is Senate Bill 4397. There is no scientific proof that this technology will help solve any crime.
Assembly Bill 1093 would impose new restrictions on licensed dealers and require retailers to obtain liability insurance against the possibility of a crime being committed with a firearm any time after it is legally sold. The companion Bill to A1093 is Senate Bill 1715. Is the legislature going to impose liability insurance on Car Dealers if a drunk driver kills someone with a car after the vehicle is legally sold?
Assembly Bill 801A would require five year renewals on pistol licenses. Its companion Bill is senate Bill 1598. New York State all ready requires licensed Pistol owners to “renew” there license every three years. This Bill is a complete waste of time and money.
Would you please explain to me how any of the following Bills are going to deter any crime?
Assembly Bill 1326 would outlaw any handgun that is “Capable” of being fired by anyone under five years of age or younger, How is this bill going to deter crime? Does the Legislature realize that more children are Four times more likely to burn to death or drown?
• 17 times more likely to be poisoned,
• 19 times more likely to fall, and
• 53 times more likely to die in an automobile accident
Assembly Bill 2882 would expand the ballistic imaging program. This program has been in effect since 2002 and has cost the taxpayers of NYS over 30 million dollars. As of today this program has not solved one single crime. The State of Maryland tried a similar program. Maryland abandoned the program because of the cost and it’s complete failure to solve any crime. Also consider how easy it is to remove or replace the firing pin and barrel of most handguns, thereby rendering the program useless. Here is a very good article of the CoBIS program, for your review: CoBIS or GUN DNA:A waste of millions of dollars, a waste of police manpower.
Assembly Bill 3211A would outlaw .50 caliber Firearms. What about the .50 caliber muzzle loaded firearms? The Black powder, muzzle loaded firearm has been around since the country was discovered? And is still used for sporting and hunting purposes. Americans have been long-distance target shooters since revolutionary times. According to period writings, Americans were shooting small targets at upwards of 150 yards using simple Kentucky Long Rifles and muskets. .50-caliber rifles are heavy. They weigh as much as 30 pounds and they are expensive ranging from $3,000 to $10,000 each, with ammunition costing $2-$5 for each round. .50 Caliber rifles are impossible to conceal, typically they are four feet long. They are usually single shot (slow to reload), and impractical for criminals to use.
On a side note, many Kentucky Rifles were in excess of .50 caliber, some measured out to .812 caliber but typically ranged from .60 to .75
There are several other bills on firearms that the Legislature is pushing through. All of them have nothing to do with crime deterrent? I will be watching this legislation closely and how the Senators vote on these Bills. I will do my best to get the word out on how my Government is wasting my tax dollars.

so I modified my letter to Senator Alesi and I got this response:
*note, I don't know how to scan a letter so I'm just going to type what he wrote to me:
Dear Mr. McSpadden
Thank you for contacting my office to express your concern regarding pending gun legislation. I always appreciate hearing from my constituents.
I have always been of the belief that a legal and responsile gun owner is one who should not be subjected to laws that are politically motivated and infringe upon an individual's second amendment rights. That is why I have always been and always will continue to be an advocate for the right of sportsman and law abiding gun owners. Further, I will not support any legislation which infringes on a gun owners legal rights.
Once again, thank you for taking the time to share your perspective on this very important issue. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance to you in any other state government matter
James S. Alesi
he sent that letter "snail mail" and signed it. I'm going to post both my e-mail and his letter of response at my Gun club

Congratulations on getting a reply! Your revised letter was succinct and to the point. I'm sorry you didn't get a comprehensive reply, but at least it was consistent with your topic. Somebody read it. You were more successful than most.
