NY Prepares for New Round of Anti-Gun Bills

The Anti-Gunners of New York State are at it again. with a round of ant-gun bills that target 3D-printed guns, prohibit people guilty of committing ‘hate’ crimes from having guns, and adding the time it takes to go through a background check.

These New York grabbers will do whatever they can do to further disarm and undermine the ability of people without magic badges to be able to effectively defend themselves.

Senate Dems unveil ambitious gun control package  NY

Senate Democrats are pushing a package of nine bills that would, among other things, restrict gun ownership for individuals who have committed hate crimes or who may be a danger to themselves or others.

The bills would also create an institute to study gun violence, extend the time frame to conduct background checks during a gun purchase, and outlaw undetectable firearms, such as those made through 3-D printing.

“We must continue to take bold steps to reduce gun violence throughout New York state by passing sensible gun safety legislation,” said Senate Democratic Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, D-Yonkers. “It is our responsibility to protect our communities. Enacting this common sense legislation will help save lives by keeping guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals and banning tools to make legal guns more dangerous.”

A bill (S.7072/A.7547) sponsored by Senator Brian Kavanagh, D-Manhattan, would add hate crimes to the list of offenses that disqualify offenders from possessing a firearm.

In New York state, crimes such as stalking and sexual assault disqualify individuals from possessing guns. There is no law that stops those convicted of misdemeanor hate crimes from purchasing a gun. The bill would add those convicted to the list of serious offenses that denies the right to purchase or possess a gun.
