Better not be true

There is an ongoing controversy within the NRA that I have not felt the need to comment on here as it does not relate to the purpose of this blog.

Then there’s this:

“… I had a call out of the blue late this afternoon from a person on the NRA Board. It was off the record and not for attribution. This person thinks that the lawsuit might be a smokescreen to protect the NRA from New York State. It gives the impression that they are taking their fiduciary and financial duties seriously. As both the lawsuit notes and I mentioned above, the State of New York revised their statutes to require not-for-profits to do more due diligence and to pay more attention to where members and donors money is being spent. The rationale behind this being a smokescreen to protect the NRA is that, according to this person, the NRA had not been requiring any sort of invoices or other detailed record-keeping for services rendered in years gone by. In other words, Ack Mc said here is how much we want and please send us a check. God forbid that they were that slack but I believe it.”

This better not be true.

S-4849, stun gun regulation

A couple weeks ago a judge ruled that the state’s ban on stun guns was unconstitutional.  I wrote:

“It’s a safe bet that new restrictive legislation will be introduced in Albany shortly.”

Brad Hoylman promptly introduced S-4849 to Senate Codes.

According to the justification statement:

“… This bill would regulate the sale, possession, and use of electronic stun guns and electronic dart guns in a similar manner to New York’s current laws regulating the use of personal defense sprays. The bill would limit the possession of these weapons to possession for personal protection or the protection of property, and limit the permissible use of such weapons to self-defense … It is imperative in light of the recent court decision that New York act to impose sensible restrictions on the use of these potentially deadly weapons in order to protect our residents from harm …”

There is no Assembly companion bill (yet).

The legislature is going to do the exact same thing if/when a gun law is struck down by the courts.  They might even cut-n-paste the justification from this bill.
