Observer-Dispatch letter to the editor

As a follow up to my previous posting, the Observer-Dispatch ran my letter in today’s edition:

In your Aug. 15 article, “U.S. Rep. Anthony Brindisi on impeachment, gun control, re-election plans,” the Congressman is quoted as saying, “I don’t think anyone wants to restrict a law-abiding gun owner’s right to have access to a firearm.”

If he really believes this then I would like him to prove it by adding his name as co-sponsor to H.R.38 the Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2019.

After going through all the criminal records checks the state requires to obtain a pistol license proving license holders are “law-abiding gun owners” there is no legitimate reason their ability to carry firearms should be restricted based entirely upon artificial political boundaries.

I’m not expecting Brindisi to do this.

Ithaca Mayor joins #localgovs4gunsafety

I believe Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick is the first local to jump on this “new” bandwaggon:

This is unlikely to succeed for two reasons:

  1. It was done before and nearly bankrupted Smith & Wesson.
  2. The market share of even large cities can dry up and blow away with negligible impact on the firearms and ammunition manufactures.
