Gun issues hot in 101st Assembly primary
Gun issues hot in 101st Assembly primary - If you want to win the northern part of the 101st Assembly District, it doesn't hurt to have the workers at Remington Arms in Ilion on your side. "We have 1068 union members that work here at this facility at Remington Arms," United Mine Workers Local 717 PAC Chairman Rusty Brown said. To get Brown's seal of approval, you need to concentrate on jobs, a priority he says is compromised by something called microstamping.
Ban guns, boo God; is that the image Democrats want?
Ban guns, boo God; is that the image Democrats want? - Wednesday saw an affirmation of sorts that the far left-tilting Democrat party has embraced Barack Obama’s 2008 sneer about Americans who cling to their guns or religion when, over the course of a single day, a powerful party leader announced a new move against gun rights, while convention delegates booed the notion of restoring a reference to God and language about Jerusalem in the party platform.
Microstamping Bills are an Economic Disaster in the Waiting
Microstamping Bills are an Economic Disaster in the Waiting - If legislators in New York and Connecticut approve proposed microstamping bills in 2013, it will cost both states hundreds of jobs and the loss of at least two iconic American firearms manufacturers. Remington Arms in Ilion, N.Y., and Colt Arms of Harford, Conn., say they will close their plants and move to Midwest states with less restrictive gun laws if they are forced to implement microstamping technology.
State hunter education courses available now
State hunter education courses available now - All new hunters or trappers planning to go afield this upcoming season must first complete a mandatory hunter or trapper education course, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation is reminding people. Previously licensed hunters who plan to hunt out of state should also have their sportsman education certificates or previous licenses in hand as proof that they have completed the required course. All states accept New York’s hunter education course but states differ on what is required as proof of completion. Sporting licenses went on sale Aug. 13.

Fighting Against Guns
Fighting Against Guns - As Assemblyman Brian Kavanagh, D-Manhattan, stood on the steps of City Hall with other lawmakers pushing for tougher gun control legislation, he did so knowing they were unlikely to get much support from Republicans. But Kavanagh and others who presented during the August press conference said bipartisan support is the only way New York lawmakers are likely to pass tougher gun control policies.
