    Citing NY's SAFE Act, Henrietta Guns and Ammo Store Closes

    Citing NY's SAFE Act, Henrietta Guns and Ammo Store Closes - Jackson Guns and Ammo in Henrietta has closed up shop, and owner Kordell Jackson said that New York's SAFE Act is to blame. "We catered to the assault rifles and once that was out, it kind of hurt us," Jackson said. Jackson operated out of two locations, Henrietta and Scottsville, for more than 10 years. His stores are now empty. With certain assault weapons now banned in New York state, and a limit on magazine capacity, Jackson says sales dropped from about $250,000 to $15,000 a month. "We were struggling with all the rules and regulations, the New York SAFE Act as well as the New York State payroll taxes, the state taxes, all these taxes," Jackson said. "You can't stay in business with all this going on." Jackson closed up shop Jan. 17.  He says the decision was difficult.  After spending five to six months looking for ways to keep his business viable, Jackson said closing made the most sense.


    Nassau Democrats eye gun control activist for Denenberg's seat

    Nassau Democrats eye gun control activist for Denenberg's seat - The Nassau Democratic Committee is wasting no time in replacing Legis. Dave Denenberg, who resigned his seat Wednesday after pleading guilty to stealing more than $2 million from a client. Nassau Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs said the party will screen five potential candidates for the seat Wednesday night and a decision is expected by late Wednesday night. Among the top candidates is Rita Kestenbaum, 56, of North Bellmore, who served a term on the Hempstead Town Board from 1999-2001. “She has been an elected official before and has a thorough understanding of all the issues,” Jacobs said. In recent years, Kestenbaum has become known for her work to prevent gun violence.


    Company That Provided Guns for ‘Taken 3′ Does More Than Talk After Reading Liam Neeson’s Fiery Anti-Gun Rant

    Company That Provided Guns for ‘Taken 3′ Does More Than Talk After Reading Liam Neeson’s Fiery Anti-Gun Rant PARA USA, the firearms company that provided guns for use in the movie “Taken 3,” is cutting all ties with the film’s star, Liam Neeson, after he made a number of fiery anti-gun comments in a recent interview. Not only did PARA USA say that the company “regrets its decision to provide firearms for use in the film,” the gun manufacturer vowed to never again provide firearms for any future films starring Neeson. “While the film itself is entertaining, comments made by its Irish-born star during press junkets reflect a cultural and factual ignorance that undermines support of the Second Amendment and American liberties,” the company wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday.


    Columbia Journalism School's biased alliance with Mike Bloomberg's advocacy organization

    Columbia Journalism School's biased alliance with Mike Bloomberg's advocacy organization - For years I’ve advocated for the journalists, activists and politicians who argue for more gun control to better acquaint themselves with guns and gun laws. It’s always struck me as pretty appalling that the only requisite for an opinion on limiting gun rights appears to be passion, not knowledge. From cable news anchors to newspaper reporters, college administrators to anti-gun lobbyists, local legislators to the vice president of the United States, the very people who want to reinterpret the Constitution and limit your Second Amendment rights often seem to know the least about the issue, save for their uncanny ability to prey on emotion and fear.
