I was interviewed by a NYSNYS News reporter yesterday and it made it into today’s Troy Record:
“… “People know that registration leads to confiscation,” Jacob Rieper, a spokesman for the NYS Rifle and Pistol Association, referring to the portion of the law that requires anyone possessing a military style assault rifle on January 15 register it by April 15. Failure to do so is a misdemeanor. But Rieper and other gun-rights advocates predict that many owners will run the risk, which may not be much of a gamble if their belief holds true that local police, sheriffs and the State Police will not go out of their way to aggressively enforce the law … Gun rights advocates are in federal court in Buffalo to overturn the law. Rieper said that the judge has indicated he will rule based on court filings rather than oral arguments, and was cognizant of the looming registration deadline …”
One thought on “Quoted in Troy Record”
Ah! The SAFE Act; the Gift that keeps on giving.
Just when folks thought SAFE Act outrage was dying, there’s some new aspect of that law becoming effective that makes a person realize only thing missing in that Law and with Cuomo is cranberry sauce & dressing.
Any Pol that voted for SAFE must be wondering if they should be updating their resume’ looking at a 2014 Election Year.
