Just curious - gun owners live in New York State why, exactly?
Why? Because it's actually not all that bad here. Most out-of-staters seem to have no idea that New York City and the rest of the state are different places.
NY is MORE gun friendly than many states.
These bills come up virtually every year. Most always they die in committee. The whole "OMG, there a democratic assembly" is nonsense. NY almost always has a democratic assembly. Most of them are not the rabid anti-gun nutbags that bring up these bills. Usually these bills come from the never-been-out-of-NYC liberal elitists and the rest of the upstate people pretty well shut them down.
In short, yes, we NYers should oppose these bills actively. No, it is not the end of the world, the sky is not falling.
This bill has gotten a little to far for comfort, but it's not over yet.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
