Tell Your New York State Legislators to Oppose NY Assembly Bill 8262!
New York Assembly Bill 8262 was introduced this week by Assemblyman Demond Meeks (D-137). The bill, if adopted, would require New Yorkers to pass a 5-hour firearms safety course prior to being able to purchase a firearm (rifle, shotgun, etc.) and/or ammunition. Clearly, this is just another hoop that anti-gun state legislators are pushing that law-abiding citizens would be required to jump through, that criminals will continue to bypass.
