PISTOL PERMIT RE-CERTIFICATION https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/pprecert/welcome.faces Ladies and Gentlemen, I know there is a lot of talk and consternation regarding the re-certification process and the page that has recently been made active by the NYSP. Let me perfectly clear; while we object to any regulation that places any additional burden on the practice of our Second Amendment Rights we cannot advise you not to re-certify. If we preformed that illegal act it would have dire consequences for the Association. I would suggest to those re-certifying to visit their County Clerk’s Office to make sure your permit matches what is on file in the office. Remember you have one year to perform this re-certification, make good use of that time, make sure everything is correct. I would also suggest that December 29, 2017 would be a good time to re-certify for two reasons (1.) It will give us time to work on a legislative fix (2.) It would be a good test of the system’s capabilities. If you have any questions please contact us. Tom King Cogito ergo armatus...

Let’s get this straight from the start, I support Donald Trump for President of the United States.

Come Together Let’s get this straight from the start, I support Donald Trump for President of the United States. That was not so one year ago when I supported Mike Huckabee because of how and what he said at the NRA Annual Meetings in Nashville. At this point in time no matter what the pundits are saying Mr. Trump is our last best hope to defeat Hillary Clinton. Think about this for a moment; millions more people voted for Mr. Trump than any other Republican candidate, he brought thousands if not millions of new voters to the party and through thick and thin they stayed with him. Loyalty is a scarce commodity these days but his supporters have it. But all that said there is a more important aspect of this election to be considered. We must support whoever is chosen as the Republican candidate for President and it doesn’t matter that I think Trump is the best man for the job and that I will be working toward that goal. The most important goal of this election cycle is to elect a Republican President. Why? Following are the eight most important reasons: Kennedy          80                                Sotomayor       62 Ginsburg          83                                Roberts            61 Breyer             78                                Alito                 61 Thomas           68                                Kagan              56   Look at the judges’ age. The next President if elected for two terms will most likely nominate three or four judges to fill vacancies on that list to the Supreme Court; as well as nominate a candidate to replace deceased Justice Antonin Scalia. Think of that for a moment. This is one of the most precarious times that I...

Not Seeking Cert in NYSRPA Case

Members and Supporters: After three years of continued movement through the Judicial System the death of Justice Antonin Scalia accomplished a feat the anti-gunners were unable to do; it stopped our lawsuit. Below please find a statement Jay Porter a Constitutional Lawyer very much involved in NYSRPA V Cuomo and many other Constitutional issues prepared the statement below. If you have any questions please forward them to Mr. Porter at jporter@babc.com Ten or so days ago, all those who cherish the freedoms guaranteed by the Second Amendment suffered a tremendous loss with the passing of Justice Antonin Scalia. Justice Scalia was the author of the Heller decision and was a staunch defender of the right to keep and bear arms. Unfortunately, with his passing, it is likely that there are, at most, only four justices committed to a proper understanding of the Second Amendment. Given what we know or believe about the current makeup of the Supreme Court, the best case scenario would be a 4-4 decision, which would result in the Second Circuit’s decision being affirmed. Accordingly, at present, there is no chance of reversing the Second Circuit’s decision upholding New York’s gun ban on safety enhancing features and life-saving standard capacity magazines. There is, however, a very great risk that, in the absence of Justice Scalia’s influence, a majority could in fact vote to affirm the Second Circuit case, which would result in binding Supreme Court precedent and create a potentially insurmountable obstacle to the practice and enjoyment of those rights elucidated in the Heller decision. In light of this stark reality, after reaching and prolonged consultation...
