It's tough generating bad press that's good press (did that make any sense?) when the local papers print your name and address for following the law. IE the dust up last week about printing the name and address of every pistol licence in several countys. I'm 50 miles away from that but the local media is equally useless. We has someone running for DA promise to do just that a couple years ago. He lost by aapprox a 4 to 1 margin.
We've had to live with a NYS law that is nearly identical to the 1993 AWB however, it is permanent. My AR and anything we could buy here is a neutered version; Straight barrels, no flash suppressor, no lug (not that I need a bayonet to hunt yotes.) fixed stocks, and a 10 round mag limit. Now They're talking outright confiscation. If I could sell my property here, I would do it immediately and move to a red state.
Good letter. May I plagurize it? It is short and to the point. I like that.
