Cuz they really, really want this bill. It's for your own good don't ya know? They just want it to help protect you, not enforce a tyranny, really.

Golden, you will need to contact your STATE Senator and Assembly Member about this bill. This is a NY Legislature issue not the Federal Congress, therefore Chuck doesn't have a vote in this.

There are more than this bill on the table. Please contact your State Assembly Member and Senator!

The Anti-Gun Bills:

1. 5-year handgun licenses (S 1598A/A801A)—would require all legal handgun owners to reregister every five years

2. Gun dealer liability for criminal acts (S 1715/A1093)—exposes retailers to lawsuits when a firearm is used in a crime.

3. Ban sales of long guns (S 1712/A1275)—bans the private transfer of rifles

4. Child-proof guns (S 5228/A1326)—bans sales of firearms without child-proofing

5. Limits on ammunition (S 2379/A2881)—restricts certain commonly used ammunition

6. Gun bans (A2910/A2885)—allows police to ban possession of any firearm they deem “unsafe”

7&8. Bullet stamping (S2953/A3200 and S6005/A6468B)—requires serial numbers on all bullets, and “microstamping technology” for all semi-automatic handguns.

9. Ban affordable handguns typically used for self-defense. (A3346)

10. Prohibit gun shows on public property. (A2884)

11. Expand the failed ballistic imaging program—proven virtually useless in fighting crime—to all firearms. (S1188/A3477)

12. Requires so-called “smart gun” technology on all firearms made or sold in the state. (S4338/A4441)

13. Safe storage (S3098/A5844)—creates several new crimes for failing to use gun locks and store firearms unloaded, and in locked cases.

I'm not going into how many ways this bill is awful, but I once marched with my current Senator years ago when I was working on an political friend of her's campaign so it looks like I'm gonna have call her up and try to explain just how awful this bill is in non-gunnie terms. Maybe try and setup a face to face on the weekend. Anyone got any tips or suggestions what I should say?

Stay calm and stick to the facts. Logically explain why these bills will only serve to further burden an already overburdened law enforcement and over taxed populace, while doing nothing to actually stop crime from happening.

Ballistic Imaging (A3477) failed to make it out of Assembly Codes.
11. Expand the failed ballistic imaging program—proven virtually useless in fighting crime—to all firearms. (S1188/A3477)

As to the original question on the Microstamping bill (A6468)... it still is on the 3rd reading (since 5/6/2010).

Microstamping is being pushed by the company that developed the process. They have pushed this in many states. Make a campain contribution and they have a bill submitted.

Microstamping passed the assembly today.

Microstamping passed the assembly today.

Pretty much expected, since the Assembly has a majority with the downstate anti-gun politicians. The State Senate is where these bills get shot down. If you are from NY please contact your State Senator to vote against these bills when they come up for a vote in the Senate!

Let's stay focused, folks. This isn't the place to debate the effectiveness, legality, or motivation behind this bill and technology - this is the place to get organized, and fight it.

Springfield 30-06 & Al LaVodka have posted links to find out who you should be contacting, and what to tell them when you do - so let's get on it, huh? If we give up, they win by default.
