Klein calls NYSRPA president’s comments ‘insulting’

Klein calls NYSRPA president’s comments ‘insulting’ – Senate Independent Democratic Conference Leader Jeff Klein hit back at comments by state Rifle & Pistol Association President Tom King, who grumbled to YNN that the state’s gun control laws should get an F instead of the B+ awarded earlier this week by the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence and the Brady Campaign. To be fair, King and the Brady Campaign have rather different metrics on this issue. Klein’s statement: “Tom King’s recent remarks on the NY SAFE Act are insulting to all New Yorkers who understand we need smart gun control laws.

Lawmakers took an easy step Monday when the Democratic-run Senate unanimously gave final congressional approval to a bill adding another decade to the prohibition against guns that can slip by airport metal detectors and X-ray machines. The National Rifle Association, which has helped scuttle firearms restrictions this year, did not oppose the... read more

Business blames SAFE Act for move from Farmington

Business blames SAFE Act for move from Farmington – In stark contrast to new construction, infrastructure upgrades and storefront facelifts along Routes 96 and 332 in Farmington, two vacant buildings stand dormant, both casualties of New York’s Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement (SAFE) Act of 2013, according to their owner. Supervisor Ted Fafinski concurred. Fafinski said until last spring, the two structures at 6162 and 6132 Route 96 were being completely renovated in preparation for the opening of a new showroom, a small arms training space and an indoor range. The properties were home to AR15.com, an Internet-based community, distributor and manufacturer of AR15 semi-automatic rifles and assorted... read more
