Brian, I hope more people write the same, and I hope it gets read and considered by the politicians in New York.

However, the momentum is there in the legislature, and in the governor's office. It may take a court challenge to kill this.

This legislation will protect New Yorkers by reducing the availability of assault weapons and deterring the criminal use of firearms while promoting a fair, consistent and efficient method of ensuring that
sportsmen and other legal gun owners have full enjoyment of the guns
to which they are entitled
The word entitled implies a privilege (which appears in the law) rather than a right (which does not). Let's all remember that language and where it got New York. If nothing else spurs people into action, this should.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
