New York: Urge Your Legislators to Oppose S.470 and vote to repeal the SAFE Act

senate Bill S63
Establishes a special fee on firearms, rifles and shotguns

A2260 Requires Firearms owners to obtain $250,000.00 in insurance

Establishes a special fee on firearms, rifles and shotguns; establishes the gun violence research fund.
On Wednesday, January 4, the New York State Legislature began its 2017 Legislative Session.  Several gun control bills had already been introduced by the end of the first day, and dozens more are expected by the end of session.  Despite failed attempts to pass microstamping for over a decade, anti-gun lawmakers in Albany are once again trying to pass this unworkable, anti-gun legislation.  S.470, sponsored by state Senator Jose Peralta, would do nothing to improve public safety as microstamping is easily circumvented by common household tools.  The bill however, would severely impact honest, law-abiding gun owners by driving up the price of firearms and ammunition.
ACTION ALERT: Bill introduced again this year to mandate $250,000.00 in Liability Insurance.  Please see the link for full bill or click to download and review.
