As a follow-up to my previous post, Senator James Gaughran announced his plans to introduce legislation prohibiting gun raffles:
“… A prospective bill would outlaw making guns the prize for raffles commonly held by community groups and sportsman’s clubs in the latest move to tighten restrictions on firearms in New York. “You shouldn’t be able to simply walk into a catering venue and walk out owning a firearm,” said state Sen. Jim Gaughran, D-Long Island. “This law will protect public safety and advance New York’s commitment to common sense gun reform.” …”
Gaughran’s target is the local FNRA dinners, but it would also effect everything from local firearm/ambulance departments to gun/hunting clubs. This is a totally phony non-issue, but he doesn’t care.
