New York –-(Ammoland.com)- According to the Plunkette Research, the TOTAL ANNUAL SPENDING FOR TARGET SHOOTING, 2001:
“The nation’s target shooters spend an astounding $9.9 billion annually on their sport, more than the National Football League’s annual revenue(Note 1). That is a per-shooter expenditure of approximately $493 annually.”
Economic Contributions from All U.S. Target Shooting and Hunting Activities in 2011:

Ranked by SPENDING, New York is in the Top 5 States (NY = 4th) in the USA
Because the political SCHMUCKS in Albany, New York refused to do the right thing, I have attempted, only by simple mathematical means, based upon the 2011 numbers above, to create the Economic Impact Statement on the effects of the New York SAFE ACT that the politicians in Albany could not be bothered to do.
