Firearms Microstamping Defeated In New York Again

NEWTOWN, Conn –-( Microstamping legislation A. 1157, which earlier this year passed the General Assembly, failed to be voted on in the New York State Senate.

This marks the fourth straight year that microstamping has been defeated in the Empire State.

Fortunately, legislators have listened to the independent studies of this flawed, easily-defeated concept and instead want to save the close to 9,000 jobs attributed to the firearms industry in the state.

NSSF thanks everyone who urged their legislators to oppose microstamping.
