Heads up New Yorkers! 50 BMG ban!

Several bills that would impact law-abiding gun owners, hunters, and sportsmen are currently pending in the Assembly. They include
A 3311, which would prohibit the sale of any pistol or revolver not containing a "child-proofing" device; and A 4615C, which legislates how gun owners must store their firearms and creates new crimes and penalties. Reported out of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee this week were A 7039 (same as S 4453), which bans the sale, use, and possession of .50-caliber firearms; and A 8542B, which would expand the current ballistic "identification" program to include rifles and shotguns. These measures now head to the Assembly floor for consideration. A 8456A, which would place many new onerous restrictions and requirements on firearm dealers, was also reported out of the Assembly Ways and Means Committee and was referred to the Assembly Rules Committee. Please contact your Assembly member and urge him to OPPOSE the proposals listed above. Also please keep in mind that, although the New York State Senate has rejected Governor George Pataki`s (R) plan for renewable pistol licenses and new state fees contained in budget bills S. 6056/A. 9556, the budget process won`t be over until it`s finally adopted by the Legislature, so it is important to encourage lawmakers to continue to stand firm in opposing the Governor`s plan. To get contact information for your Representatives please use the "Write Your Representatives" tool at www.NRAILA.org.

I already mailed and emailed my Assemblyman, NYS senator, and the Governor on this. Anybody else here willing to do the same?

Just so you don't feel alone, we have that and more going on in Illnoise. King Richard II AKA Richard Daily, Mayor of Chicago and King of Illinois is attempting, AGAIN, to ban just about everything in the state except Red Rider BB guns, as long as they aren't painted black and will accept a rubber bayonet! The Queen of Spin, Mrs Brady, has also set up shop in this State of Misery. I recommend all gun owners in this state move to Montana and leave Illinoise to the criminal.
