    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.

    Assembly Bill 6525A, sponsored by State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin (D-8,
    would create new sales and reporting requirements for licensed firearms
    dealers and require dealers to carry a minimum of $1,000,000 of
    liability insurance.

    Assembly Bill 9819A, authored by State Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel
    (D-16), would seek to ban the sale of semi-automatic handguns not
    equipped with so-called "microstamping" technology. The bill requires
    all semiautomatic pistols sold in the state to microstamp an array of
    characters that identify the make, model and serial number of the pistol
    on the firing pin, which would copy the characters onto the cartridge
    case upon firing.

    Assembly Bill 7331, sponsored by State Assemblyman Matthew Titone
    (D-61), would expand the ban on semi-automatic assault weapons, as
    well as require the ballistic fingerprinting(registration) of all
    semi-automatic assault weapons owned prior to a specified date.

    Assembly Bill 3451, introduced by State Assemblyman David Koon (D-135),
    would expand New Yorks failed ballistic imaging program even after a
    study by the National Academy Sciences was released stating it does not
    work to solve crimes.

    Assembly Bill 2772, authored by State Assemblywoman Patricia Eddington
    (D-3), would ban the sale, use or possession of any firearm with a bore
    diameter .50 caliber or larger. This bill would require gun owners in
    possession of these firearms to surrender them to law enforcement.

    Assembly Bill 829, sponsored by State Assemblyman Steve Englebright
    (D-4), would prohibit the sale of any handgun that doesnt contain a
    childproofing device or mechanism incorporated into the design of the

    would ban the sale or possession of frangible ammunition.

    ^ 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.
