Anyone want to critque my letter To Senator Alesi
To the Honorable Senator Alesi
My name is Jeff McSpadden, I live at ************ St, Rochester, NY 14621 and I am a Law Abiding member of the State of New York and I am privileged to have a Concealed Carry Permit for New York.
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. I defy anyone in the legislature to find a scientist, criminologist or Police technician that will confirm that Micro-Stamping a bullet, projectile or case 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. Seriously? Is the legislature going to impose liability insurance on Ford, GM and Chrysler if a drunk driver kills someone with a car after the vehicle is legally sold? How about Budweiser or Coors? Is the legislature going to require the liquor industry to acquire liability insurance if their products kill someone after they are 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 someone in the New York State Government 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?
Assembly Bill 2882 would expand the ballistic imaging program. Are you kidding me? This program has been in effect since 2002 and has cost the taxpayers of NYS over 3 million dollars. As of today this program has not solved one single crime. The only other state to attempt this program was Maryland and the dumped they program because of the cost and it’s inability to solve any crimes. This bill is another complete waste of money.
Assembly Bill 3211A would outlaw .50 caliber Firearms. Why? Can anyone in the NYS Legislature show the taxpayers a case in which ANY .50 caliber firearm was used in a crime? 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. This is another bill that is a complete waste of time and money.
there is going to be more, but I need someone to check this out before a send it
