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.

Quote:
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.
