CHECK BACK BECAUSE I ADD NEWS AND INFORMATION AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE.
SO MUCH IS GOING ON THAT IT IS HARD FOR ME TO KEEP UP


SPECIAL ALERT
S7033 was not voted on.
It is still in committee.  I talked to Sen. Larkin's Albany office and was told that a vote was taken to force the S6093 out of the Codes Committee and that vote failed.  S7033 was not voted on and the bill still lacks a sponsor in the Assembly but that could change on a moments notice.  As long as the bill is in committee it can not come to the floor for a vote.
THIS IS IT!! WE ARE IN OUR FINAL DAYS.  EVERY GUN OWNER MUST STAND UP.  EVERYONE MUST CALL TODAY!  THIS IS IT.  PATAKI'S PROPOSAL HAS A VERY GOOD CHANCE OF PASSING AND WORSE, (S6093/A7668,) ANTIGUN LAWS ARE WAITING IN THE WINGS.  WE HAVE A GOOD CHANCE OF HAVING ANTI-GUN LAWS THAT WE HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST OVER THE LAST YEARS BEING PASSED THIS WEEK OR BY THE MIDDLE OF APRIL BUT IT IS LOOKING A LITTLE BIT BETTER.
     It has been reported by SCOPE that Mario Pataki's office is throwing away all form letters that it is getting that are against it new gun laws so that it can say that it has only gotten 40 letters against the new laws so far.  Make sure that you send Mario Pataki a letter and call and e-mail him.  (I would guess that they are ignoring e-mails also.)

My Summary of S7033
(I am not a lawyer so read it yourself and see if you can figure it out.
My comments in italic and subject to change.)
Trigger locks:
 Requires that all FFLs sell a trigger lock or other locking device if the gun does not have some type of locking device as "AN INTEGRATED DESIGN FEATURE"  with each gun and post a sign:     "THE USE OF A LOCKING DEVICE OR SAFETY LOCK IS ONLY ONE ASPECT OF RESPONSIBLE FIREARM STORAGE.  FIREARMS SHOULD BE STORED UNLOADED AND LOCKED IN A LOCATION THAT IS BOTH SEPARATE  FROM  THEIR  AMMUNITION  AND  INACCESSIBLE TO CHILDREN AND ANY OTHER UNAUTHORIZED PERSONS."
     It provides: NOTHING  IN THIS SECTION SHALL BE CONSTRUED TO PROHIBIT A MUNICIPALITY FROM ADOPTING OR MAINTAINING A STRICTER STANDARD REGULATING  THE SALE,  DELIVERY OR TRANSFER OF GUN LOCKING DEVICES BY LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE.
******
     I do not see much of a problem with this other than the cost and it does not allow someone with a safe to not have to buy a lock.  It does not mandate use.
The fatal flaw is allowing local law to be stricter.  Your town could require that you have a safe that they approve and that the police be able to inspect your safe and guns at any time and/or that guns must be taken apart and stored disassembled and locked in a safe unless you are going to the range or going hunting.  Some town could even  require that all guns be stored unloaded and locked with a trigger lock when going to and from the range or hunting.

PISTOL AND REVOLVER BALLISTIC IDENTIFICATION DATABANK

     Requires that the MANUFACTURER ship the gun with a fired bullet and shell casing in a sealed container and that the FFL forward the container the State Police within 10 days of the sale of the handgun.

*****
     What a waste of time and money.  A recent TV news report stated that over 12,000 rape kits from NYC are waiting DNA testing and now Pataki wants to waste time with this?  It is going to cost millions, be backed up for years and if what the anti-gunners say is true, that 90% of crime guns come from out of state, the program will be more than useless.  It will only be usable if you have a random crime where you have no clue except the bullet and and/or the brass.  (If a revolver was used you will not have the brass.)  The bullet must be in good enough shape to be identified.
     It ends up that the only way to really catch someone is if a legal firearms owner uses a legal firearm in a crime and keeps the gun and does not alter the barrel, firing pin or block that the base of the brass hits. (Excluding the fact that someone else might take the gun, use it in a crime and then return it to the legal owner.)
The fatal flaw is the fact that it will cost millions, be a huge waste of manpower and is easily defeated.  (The first thing that I will do when I get a gun and after every criminal use, is to fire lap the barrel or switch barrels and take some polishing compound to the firing pin and block.)  New manufacturing methods in use today produce guns and barrels that are almost identical when new.  You would almost have to require that the guns be made with some defect that would make the gun unique.
This is something that if it has to be done, must be done on a federal level.  Some method would have to be used so the the manufacturer could scan the bullet and brass into a computer and then transmit that to the Feds.  It would still be a waste of time, money and manpower.

SALE OF FIREARMS, RIFLES OR SHOTGUNS AT GUN SHOWS

     Require that a NICS check be done on all sales at any "gun shows."  You can be charged  "cost" of the check.

*****
          Not as bad as other proposed laws in that it is more reasonable in defining a "gun show" and requires no other record keeping.
     The fatal flaws are the fact that the Gun Control Act of 68, allows the private sale of firearms.  The gun will have to be transferred to the books of an FFL and only an FFL can do a NICS.  The FFL is allowed to charge "cost."
Assault Weapon Ban
UPDATE 6/12/00
The following is in the bill.  It would appear that even bolt action rifles could be included.

21. "ASSAULT WEAPON" MEANS (A) A SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLEOR A RIFLE HAVING
    4  ONE OR MORE BARRELS LESS THAN SIXTEEN INCHES IN LENGTH THAT HAS AN ABIL-
    5  ITY  TO ACCEPT A DETACHABLE MAGAZINE AND HAS AT LEAST TWO OF THE FOLLOW-
    6  ING CHARACTERISTICS: (I) A FOLDING OR TELESCOPING STOCK; (II)  A  PISTOL

    8  (III) A BAYONET MOUNT;  (IV)  A  FLASH  SUPPRESSOR  OR  THREADED  BARREL
    9  DESIGNED TO ACCOMMODATE A FLASH SUPPRESSOR; (V) A GRENADE LAUNCHER; OR 
   10    (B)  A  SEMIAUTOMATIC  SHOTGUN OR A SHOTGUN HAVING ONE OR MORE BARRELS
   11  LESS THAN EIGHTEEN INCHES IN LENGTH THAT HAS AT LEAST TWO OF THE FOLLOW-
   12  ING CHARACTERISTICS: (I) A FOLDING OR TELESCOPING STOCK; (II)  A  PISTOL
   13  GRIP  THAT  PROTRUDES  CONSPICUOUSLY  BENEATH  THE ACTION OF THE WEAPON;
   14  (III) A FIXED MAGAZINE CAPACITY IN EXCESS OF FIVE ROUNDS; (IV) AN ABILI-
   15  TY TO ACCEPT A DETACHABLE MAGAZINE; OR 
   16    (C) A SEMIAUTOMATIC PISTOL THAT HAS AN ABILITY TO ACCEPT A  DETACHABLE
   17  MAGAZINE  AND  HAS AT LEAST TWO OF THE FOLLOWING CHARACTERISTICS: (I) AN
   18  AMMUNITION MAGAZINE THAT ATTACHES TO THE PISTOL OUTSIDE  OF  THE  PISTOL
   19  GRIP;  (II)  A  THREADED  BARREL CAPABLE OF ACCEPTING A BARREL EXTENDER,
   20  FLASH SUPPRESSOR, FORWARD HANDGRIP, OR SILENCER; (III) A SHROUD THAT  IS
   21  ATTACHED  TO,  OR PARTIALLY OR COMPLETELY ENCIRCLES, THE BARREL AND THAT
   22  PERMITS THE SHOOTER TO HOLD THE FIREARM WITH THE NONTRIGGER HAND WITHOUT
   23  BEING BURNED; (IV) A MANUFACTURED WEIGHT OF FIFTY OUNCES  OR  MORE  WHEN
   24  THE  PISTOL  IS  UNLOADED;  (V)  A SEMIAUTOMATIC VERSION OF AN AUTOMATIC
   25  FIREARM; OR 

MY ADDITIONAL COMMENT
Please note that NY PL 265.01(1) already bans, (using  PL265.00, Definitions,) all rifles with barrels less than 16 inches and all shotguns with barrles less than 18 inches.

     Puts the Federal AWB into NY State law.  It is a ban on new production after 9/14/94.  It contains the following:
265.45 ASSAULT  WEAPON  AND  LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION FEEDING DEVICE;
AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE.  IN ANY PROSECUTION FOR AN OFFENSE UNDER THIS ARTICLE, IT SHALL  BE  AN AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSE THAT THE ASSAULT WEAPON OR LARGE CAPACITY AMMUNITION FEEDING DEVICE ALLEGEDLY POSSESSED, TRANSPORTED OR SOLD BY THE DEFENDANT WAS  LAWFULLY  POSSESSED PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER FOURTEENTH, NINETEEN HUNDRED NINETY-FOUR AND HAS THEREAFTER REMAINED, WITHOUT ALTERATION, IN SUBSTANTIALLY THE SAME CONDITION.

     (Great defense after you have been arrested and have gone to trial!)

*****
  I talked to Chris McGrath, the lobbyist in Albany for the NRA, and his reading of the bill would ban semi-autos of all types.  SCOPE's Legislative Alert for March states; "Mandate licensing for long gun owners, and registering of each semi-auto firearm on whatever list the state creates; Ban large, (+10,) capacity ammunition devices- felony penalties for non compliance."  It is impossible for me to make a call on what this bill would really do. 
PL 400 license age to 21
     Pl 400 does not list the age when a PL 400 license can be issued.  Most counties have a min. age of 18 but a few go as low as 16.  This would raise the age to 21.
*****
The fatal flaw is that it is stupid.  A judge has to issue a license and they should let the judge decide.  I want my daughter to apply when she is 12.  I see no reason why he can not issue a license with no guns listed on it with a restriction that she is only allowed to shoot at a range when I am instructing her.  I hate this more than almost any other part.
MY SUMMARY
     All in all the bill is not 10% as bad as the anti-gunners want but it is still flawed in many ways.  I can see that it is weak enough that he might have a hard time selling it to the antigunners.  I could write a bill that would allow for locking devices and NICS check and punish criminals who use assault weapons.  I wish that Mario Pataki would ask me.  Pataki sure did a bad job with this.  Everyone is going to be mad at him.  The pro gun people because he is pushing it and the antigunners because the proposals are not bad enough.  It does make sections of the law more PC by adding some "she"s to go along with the "he"s in the wording of the law.
THIS BILL SHOULD NOT PASS

     I am still trying to find out all of the bills.  It is hard to figure out what bills are what and who is pushing it.  I will be making more calls on Thursday, 3/30/00, to find out more.  Keep making calls in this order to.

    Orange County Legislators want to start process to limit
    Rifle hunting in Orange County


    UPDATE 3/23/00
         Frank Carbone and others did a great job getting out people for the meeting during the day at 1 PM in Goshen.  The final understanding that I had was that the other county lawmakers did not want the county to get involved.  The cities and towns have the legal power to deal with any problems that they have and no one is stopping them.  If Newburgh has a problem then you do not need to pass a county law that will include other towns.
         Everyone was well behaved and did a good job.  I think that the lawmakers were quite surprised and impressed with the number of people who showed up.
         The Times Herald-Record can not count and missed the number of people by over 20 and I know because I counted everyone when we were in the meeting.  I counted over 100 people.
          Thanks to everyone for showing up and as Carbone said, "Just stay tuned, we may have to do this again."

         I have talked to Pat Berardinelli, Sr., 6th Legislative District from Newburgh and have been told that he along with Stephen Brescia, 9th Legislative District from Montgomery and Leigh J. Benton, 16th Legislative District from Newburgh will be sending a letter to the Orange County Legislature Rules, Enactments and Intergovernmental Relations Committee.  The letter is to ask approval to start the process to ask the different county cities and towns to see if they want to the County Legislator to form a Committee to decide if and how to limit rifle hunting in Orange County.
        George Bucci, Newburgh Supervisor; Stephen Brescia, Montgomery Mayor and George Myers from New Windsor are the ones who have requested this action.

        The Rules Committee will meet on Wednesday, 3/22/00 at 1:00 PM in Goshen.

    Carol Klein wins County Family Court Judgeship nomination.

        Carol Klein won the Orange County Republican nomination for the Family Court Judgeship vacancy that was created when Judge John McGuirk was elected to serve on a higher court in the November 1999.  Carol Klein's name will be submitted to Gov. Pataki and he is expected to appoint her to serve until the Nov. elections. Carol Klein will have to run in the November election and if elected will serve for ten years.
        In the past any Republican could expect the support from most gun owners however this election anti-gun Rudy will be running and after the anti-gun laws proposed by Gov. Mario Pataki that support will not come as easy.
     


    Gov. Mario Pataki SCREWS gun owners.

    IF PASSED AND SIGNED THE LAWS WILL START IN NOVEMBER TO JAN. 1, 2001.

        I am as upset and surprised about this as I can be.  We will have to wait for the details to see how bad it really is but I can not see how these bill will not pass and possibly within just a few weeks.  It is going to be worse than NJ or Cal.  The only reason that the AWB bills have not passed is that we have a 2 or 3 vote margin in the Senate.  I do not think that we can expect to prevent two or three people from switching when the Gov. of their own party is demanding that they vote for the bill.  The bills are the written by the Democrats and are the same ones that have passed the Assembly but failed in the Senate in past years.  The Senate is our only hope.  They are coming to take away our guns.  This really cuts the legs from George Bush and the NRA.  (Is Pataki paying George back for not choosing him for his VP?)

    To:         gov.pataki@chamber.state.ny.us

    When will I be able to see the details of your new gun laws?
    It looks like I stand to loose about $5,000 worth of guns because of your new laws.  Guns that NY state approved that I buy just a few years ago.  Now it looks like you want me to go to jail because I own legally licensed firearms.

    Please let me know how else you plan to make us felons.  Your new gun laws are going to cost the Republicans the state  Senate and you might as well get used to saying Senator Hillary.

    I would like to have a meeting with someone from your office.

    How long does Mario Pataki want you to go to Jail for?
    NY Penal Law
    § 70.00 Sentence of imprisonment for felony.

    2. Maximum term of sentence. The  maximum  term  of  an  indeterminate sentence  shall  be  at least three years and the term shall be fixed as follows:

    (d) For  a  class D felony, the term shall be fixed by the court, and shall not exceed seven years; and
    3.  Minimum period of imprisonment. The minimum period of imprisonment
    under an indeterminate sentence shall be at least one year and shall  be
    fixed as follows:
    4.   Alternative definite sentence for class D, E, and certain class C felonies.   When a person, other than  a  second  or  persistent  felony offender,  is sentenced for a class D or class E felony, or to a class C felony specified in article two hundred twenty or  article  two  hundred twenty-one, and the court, having regard to the nature and circumstances of the crime and to the history and character of the defendant, is of the opinion that a sentence of imprisonment is necessary but that it would be unduly harsh to impose an indeterminate or determinate sentence, the court may impose a definite sentence of imprisonment and fix a term of one year or less.

    NOT TO BE LEFT OUT NY AG SPITZER ANNOUNCES HIS OWN STUPID PLAN.

        Under Spitzerís plan, members of the new coalition would agree to purchase firearms only from gun manufacturers who sign on to a new voluntary code of conduct. This code has three major principles:
     

        In announcing his plan, Spitzer signed an Executive Order, stating that the Department of Law will no longer purchase guns from any manufacturer that refuses to adopt the code of conduct.

     ''We have the capacity to squeeze manufacturers like a pincers and hurt  them in the marketplace.,'' said Democratic Attorney General Eliot Spitzer of New York. ''We are bigger than the NRA (National Rifle Association).''


    N.Y. Mayor Supports Licensing System for Gun Owners
    New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who is campaigning for U.S. Senate, said he
             supports a licensing system for firearms owners, the Associated Press reported March
             20.

             According to Giuliani, gun owners should be required to obtain licenses, similar to those
             required by motorists. He said those who want to own a gun should "have to pass a
             written exam that shows they know how to use the gun, that they're intelligent enough and
             responsible enough to handle a gun."

             Giuliani said his proposal would cover all dangerous weapons. His opponent in the
             Senate race, first lady Hillary Rodman Clinton, has proposed a licensing system for all
             handgun purchases.

       Gun Control Provisions Still in Limbo

       By John Bresnahan

       Despite a White House meeting this week designed to end the stalemate, GOP and Democratic leaders are no closer to ending a months-long deadlock over new gun control legislation.
       In fact, both sides seem relatively satisfied with keeping the logjam in place - despite a recent spate of high-profile
       shootings.
       "Both parties are better served if nothing gets done," said a senior House GOP aide. "In presidential politics, it may have
       some resonance, but Members of Congress have already defined themselves on this."
       Democrats claim that they want to end the impasse over juvenile justice legislation, which has been the subject of House-Senate talks since October 1999. But Republicans insist that the minority would rather have the stalemate as a political weapon.
       GOP leaders point to a recent incident between Reps. James Greenwood (R-Pa.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.) as a sign that
       Democrats have no desire to reach a legislative compromise on the juvenile justice bill.
       Scott and Greenwood, both of whom have worked extensively on the legislation in committee, had discussed stripping the gun and cultural provisions from the conference report and then moving the proposal.
       According to Greenwood, Scott supported this effort, and suggested they move forward with it in the conference
       committee.
       But Greenwood wanted assurances from Scott that Democratic leaders would not attack Republicans if they pressed ahead with the plan, and requested that Scott check with his leadership.
       Following consultations with top House Democrats, Scott told Greenwood their plan was rejected.
       "He said, 'It went over my pay grade. It's not going to happen,'" Greenwood said of the reaction Scott received from party
       leaders.

    UPDATE: The House did pass by a narrow margin a Message to Instruct that is non binding that will request the committee to meet within two weeks


    H. RAP BROWN HAD 45 CAL WHEN ARRESTED

        The NRA has reported that H. Rap Brown had a loaded 45 Cal. on him when he was served with an arrest warrant in 1995.  While the charges that he was arrested on were latter dropped, that still does not erase the fact that he was a felon in possession of a firearm.  He should have been in jail for 10 years.

    S&W Makes deal with HUD, GOA urges full BOYCOTT

    CLICK HERE TO SEE THE S&W  March 17, 2000,
    Settlement Document, AGREEMENT

        I am still trying to figure out what the implications are but S&W really screwed up.  I did have a meeting on 3/22/00 with the North East Sales Director, (or some title like that,) who said that the employees had no idea what was going to happen and that they were as upset about it as anyone.  (After the Supreme Court ruling that the FDA could not regulate tobacco they realized that they made a bad deal.)  I am sure that they are trying to find some way out of it.  S&W has spent Millions over the last few months on lawyers and the bosses in Britain called up and told the lawyers to make what ever deal that they had to to make the lawsuits go away.
        S&W now has the worse of both worlds.  GOA and others are calling for a BOYCOTT, (many people would do that anyway,) and the anti-gun people are saying that it is not a good deal because reproductions are exempt and the deal has other problems.
        One of the requirements are that the guns be child proof in 3 years.  When I asked what that meant the person said that a 6lb trigger pull is considered "Child Proof".  (The agreement states a 10lb trigger pull in DA mode.)  I asked him how many S&W 41s he thinks that they would sell with a 6 lb trigger.  He said that the planned to have target guns that would be covered under the requirement.

    (Keep trying, I could not get it to work the first time.)
    Some of the Press Releases:

    DEAL IS WORSE THAN HAS BEEN REPORTED IN THE PRESS

        Not knowing anything about guns and to avoid reporting on what would be obvious as stupidity on the part of S&W, the following parts of the deal between HUD and S&W have been left out of the news reports.
     

        Of course you would not expect the police or military to have to pay for or deal with the new provisions so the deal includes:
    "Guns manufactured and sold to the military and law enforcement agencies will be granted an exception to the safety features mandated by the new agreement, if the military or law enforcement agencies certify the need."
        I guess that the children and family of the police are not as important as the rest of us.
