ny anti gun bills
Numerous anti-gun bills are slated to be voted on as early as Monday,
April 14, in the New York State Assembly. The National Shooting Sports
Foundation - the trade association of the firearms industry - and the
New York State Association of Firearms Retailers are encouraging all
sportsmen, gun owners and firearms enthusiasts to contact your state
assembly member immediately, urging them to oppose these anti-gun bills.

Below is a listing of all the bills that could be taken up on the floor.
Please review and familiarize yourself with them.

^ You poor bastard - Aren't they in your neck of the woods?

What was that you were talking about revolution a few days ago? Maybe the Romans didn't have such a bad idea after all.

Let me know if you need sniper support. :D

Yeah, these clowns are my state legislators. Historically, our state assembly has been dominated by the left, but our senate has had a conservative majority, so things balanced out. But it looks like we might lose the senate. That would make things...interesting.

I really, truly, do not want to leave my home. But I will not buckle under these pigs.

Would you expect any less from the liberal weenies in a state that elected and then re-elected both Hillary and Schumer?

Down State New Yorkers vote in liberal blocks therefor running the whole State of New York.

Getting up State rural New Yorkers to vote is like pulling teeth with a knife.

Where I live in upstate NY you would be unemployed if your job was pulling teeth! I've never seen worse dental or medical care in my life!
I always thought Upstate was a predominantly Republican base - when Hillary ran I found out how wrong I was....time to move down south or out west I think.
