Senate Democrats announce gun control bills

The stupid, it burns:

“… Sen. Kevin Parker, D-Brooklyn, said incidents of gun violence in Brooklyn are a daily occurrence, “and something that is not getting better over time.” “This conference supports the Second Amendment,” he said. “We understand that there is a long tradition of hunting and shooting … but we certainly understand the morale obligation that we have as a Democratic conference to address the needs of safety.” …”

The fact that “gun violence” is a daily occurrence in Brooklyn in spite of Governor Cuomo’s so-called SAFE Act would be an indication to a normal, rational person that such policies do not work.

Of course, Parker will never admit that any more than he would acknowledge the irony of him talking about violence.

Here is the list of bills they are pushing:

  • S-3355, Enacts the “Children’s Weapon Accident Prevention Act”. Companion A-1990.
  • S-4363, Creates the “New York State Firearms Violence Research Institute.” Companion A-2977.
  • S-5808A, Enacts the “Effective Background Check Act of 2018.” Companion A-9068.
  • S-5829, Establishes certain crimes relating to the criminal possession or manufacture of an undetectable firearm, rifle, or shotgun. Companion A-914.
  • S-5922, Provides for compensation for injury or death caused by the negligent entrustment of a firearm. No Assembly companion.
  • S-6902, Relates to defining and prohibiting an accessory to accelerate the firing rate of a semiautomatic weapon. Companion A-8913.
  • S-7133, Establishes extreme risk protection orders as a court-issued order of protection prohibiting a person from purchasing, possessing or attempting to purchase or possess a firearm, rifle or shotgun. Companion A-8976B.
  • S-7605, Relates to access to foreign state records concerning previous or present mental illness of applicants for firearms license. No Assembly companion.

Opinion 17-166

As a follow-up to my previous post, the Watertown Daily Times reports, “St. Lawrence County lawmakers cite ethics issues with judges as pistol permit officer in resolution“:

St. Lawrence County lawmakers want the state to grant authority for counties to remove judges as pistol licensing officers. In a resolution passed during the county’s Finance Committee meeting Monday, legislators unanimously passed a resolution urging the county’s state representatives to pass legislation regarding pistol licensure to create uniformity statewide … The resolution states that the legislators have long been concerned with the manner in which the pistol licensing occurs in St. Lawrence County, specifically with respect to the addition of restrictions, and asks state lawmakers, among other things, to grant counties the ability to designate a pistol licensing officer other than a judge … Monday’s resolution came after the Dec. 7 opinion issued by the state Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics that states “a judge who serves as a firearm licensing officer must not initiate licensing revocation/suspension proceedings … nor conduct one without a prosecuting agency.” …”

There is state legislation designating county sheriff’s as the licensing agent A-6912/S-908, but SLC legislators are not specifically endorsing it.

Here are copies of the resolution and advisory committee opinion in PDF format:
