Long Island Lawmakers Disagree on Crime Gun Bill

Long Island Lawmakers Disagree on Crime Gun Bill – Two Long Island State Assemblymembers are at opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to the recent passing of A. 1157-B, the Crime Gun Identification Act of 2012. New York State Assemblyman Dan Losquadro (R,C-Shoreham) expressed disappointment today at the passage of A.1157-B, which requires microstamping of semi-automatic pistols sold in the state of New York. Losquadro noted the legislation is near impossible to implement and will cost the state jobs, as firearm manufacturers will move operations to other states, and is ineffective at preventing firearm-related crimes; in short, a backdoor infringement of the 2nd Amendment.
