What would happen if a NY gun law is ruled unconstitutional

Assemblyman DiPietro just shared this:

This is exactly what the state legislature will do if some aspect of New York gun law is ruled unconstitutional by SCOTUS. They will rewrite it with slightly different wording and punctuation and start the judicial process all over again.

The only way for permanent change is for gun owners to be involved with Democrat party politics and their selection and election processes.

First bills to watch

The state legislature begins their regular session on Monday.  In addition to the bills Governor Cuomo said he wanted passed there are others which I believe the legislature will take up.

Here is the list of ones that need to be watched:

  • A-425, “Children’s Weapon Accident Prevention Act”, mandatory firearms storage
  • A-451, relates to a ban on undetectable firearms, receivers and magazines
  • A-503, “Nicholas’s law”, mandatory firearms storage
  • A-506, mandatory firearms storage
  • A-763, establishes certain crimes relating to the criminal manufacture or possession of an undetectable firearm
  • A-773, relates to the criminal possession of a firearm or magazine digitally made
  • S-101, limits educational institutions ability to authorize the possession of a weapon on school grounds
  • S-1083, creates the “New York State Firearm Violence Research Institute”

Gun shop owner not convinced new laws will make a difference

City of Auburn Resolution 49-2018

The City of Auburn passed Resolution 49-2018 calling for passage of “red flag” gun control legislation at the state and federal level.

It actually passed last March, but city officials are trying to get some political mileage out of it by bringing it up now:

Cuomo’s agenda items

Governor Cuomo outlined his gun control agenda for this session. It includes:

  • “red flag” bill
  • prohibit bump stocks
  • extend background check waiting period to 10 days

It is important to note that this is just what Cuomo is asking for. It does not mean that the full legislature won’t pass addition legislation which the Assembly supported in previous sessions. I am expecting them to do just that. There are already three versions of mandatory storage introduced.

Here is some commentary on the proposals from Rochester media:

Rep. King’s priority item

Rep. Pete King has a long history of being a RINO.

That tradition continues in the new Congress:

“… Tuesday, on the eighth anniversary of the 2011 Tucson shooting that gravely injured Giffords and left six people dead, a bipartisan group of lawmakers introduced gun legislation to extend existing background check requirements to almost all gun sales and most gun transfers, including Internet sales, at gun shows and person-to-person transactions, with certain exemptions for immediate family. The bill is co-sponsored by Reps. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and Peter King, R-N.Y., and includes four additional original GOP co-sponsors: Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Fred Upton of Michigan, Chris Smith of New Jersey and Brian Mast of Florida …”

The bill has not yet been assigned a number.  You can see the draft in Thompson’s press release from yesterday.
