Assemblyman Greg Ball (R-Carmel) is continuing his fight for New York State hunters and sportsmen. Recently, legislation was brought to the floor of the assembly that would severely restrict huntersí rights in this State. Greg Ball has once again stood up against anti-hunting measures brought to the Assembly Floor by Manhattan liberals, as he did when the Assembly banned the use of .50 Caliber Guns in New York State. Below you will find links to Assemblyman Ball debating these issues on the Floor of the Assembly. As this yearís session winds down, he will continue to be the most vociferous defender of Sportsmenís Rights in New York State.

Sure he stands up for sportsmen, but what about gun owners?

That's nice but how about an assemblyman who stands up for the 2nd Amendment? I don't remember seeing a "hunters" clause or "sportsmen" clause in the 2nd Amendment.

picky, picky, picky.....:banghead:

Try "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" on for size. If we decide that only those with "perfect" outlooks merit our support, we will have very few choices at the ballot box.

The (voting) majority of the good people of New York state aren't exactly falling all over themselves to support and proclaim the 2nd Amendment. Since we don't think he is completely right on the issue, maybe we should ask Rep. Ball to focus all his time on meaningful issues to New Yorkers (upstate job creation, property tax relief, lower fuel and energy costs/taxes). Then he wouldn't waste ANY of his (or our) time or energy on gun or gun-related issues. :neener:

Look, I know he has to use the "sportsmen" rhetoric in NYS. I understand that he'd get laughed off the floor otherwise. Still, it's rhetoric that is 10 years or more behind the times. "Sporting" rifles my foot. Just like my Maadi is a "sporting rifle". Beh, sport schmort, why must we cower when people say, "do you realize that your gun could be used to inflict massive damage on a group of people?" To that I answer, "yes, I do". It's not going to be used for that purpose by me, but yes, it can do that. Yes, a .50 cal could be used to shoot an airline, while it was taxiing. No, it's not a particularly useful hunting weapon. So what? NY Democrats aren't particularly useful congressmen, should we ban them too... wait, bad example... but I think you all get my point.

as he did when the Assembly banned the use of .50 Caliber Guns in New York State


Reading is fundamental.

Supports hunting and gun ownership!

I for one, stand behind this guy. I've met him at a Sportsman Center locally back when the Journal News posted it's list of all Pistol Permit holders in the Westchester/Rockland county area. Not concealed permit holders, Pistol Permit holders. And in Westchester County you need to have this permit to even get a handgun from a store. There were thousands of names on that list, retired and current LEO, town board members, you name it and he took the time to come to the meeting that was organized and give us his view points. By my recollection we had at least 25 people there and he spoke with each and every one of us. Now I may be idealistic and had the wool pulled over my eyes by a "politician" but he didn't double speak, he didn't flip flop on the issue, he pretty much came into the room angry at what was done and giving the best advice he could as to how to prevent it from happening again.

As far as I'm concerned I'd volunteer for his dang campaign if he asked lol
