Gaughran bill S-6738 introduced

Senator Jim Gaughran has introduced his gun raffle ban bill as S-6738 to Senate Rules.

Bill text is short and sweet:

“NO FIREARM, AS DEFINED IN SECTION 265.00 OF THE PENAL LAW, SHALL BE OFFERED OR GIVEN AS A PRIZE IN ANY GAME OF CHANCE UNLESS THE AUTHORIZED ORGANIZATION IS A BONA FIDE ORGANIZATION OF VETERANS, VOLUNTEER FIREFIGHTERS OR A POLICE BENEVOLENT ASSOCIATION.”

The memorandum/bill justification statement is missing, perhaps because Gaughran feels the stupidity of the legislation speaks for itself.

Senator Robert Ortt held a press conference today at the Tonawanda Sportsmen’s Club to criticize the bill:

One thought on “Gaughran bill S-6738 introduced

  1. You don’t win a gun at these. You win a ticket good for the gun you won , good at a gun store or FFL that must follow all background rules and if a handgun,the winner must have a valid permit(and go through a background check). This law does nothing but waste time and get a feather in the hat for the sponsor from people who don’t understand the law or system
