National Rifle Association

FAIRFAX, Va. --(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association joined the New York State Rifle and Pistol Association in filing a complaint against the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Act in the United States District Court for the Western District of New York.

“The National Rifle Association is committed to defending the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding New Yorkers,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature usurped the legislative and democratic process in passing these extreme anti-gun measures with no committee hearings and no public input. This obvious disrespect for New Yorkers and their Second Amendment rights will not be tolerated.”

The New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Act threatens severe penalties for previously lawful activities, including acquiring certain commonly owned firearms, ammunition magazines and ammunition. It lowers New York’s arbitrary magazine capacity limit from ten rounds to seven. It also greatly expands the state’s existing ban on commonly owned semi-automatic firearms, and will require New York gun owners to undergo background checks on ammunition purchases.

“The NRA will defend the right of law-abiding New Yorkers to Keep and Bear Arms under the Second Amendment,” added Cox, “Despite the wishes of Governor Cuomo, law-abiding citizens have a fundamental right to keep commonly possessed firearms for defense of themselves and their families and for other lawful purposes including the enjoyment of New York’s rich hunting and sporting heritage.”

    2. How about two way communications here. The ability to create a dialog between commenters?

      One cannot use the same type of thinking that created the situation to fix the situation.
