|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.)
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.

Legislators want to start process to limit
Rifle hunting in Orange County
| 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.
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
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?)
If you question Governor Pataki's intentions and would like to complain
to the NYS Republican Party, please call them at: 914-949-3020.
elected officials and register your opposition to the Pataki proposals:
call 877-373-7920 and ask for the offices of:
Governors phone number is: 518-474-8390 (they only ask if you are "for" or "against" - let's keep the phones tied up!)
Send letters, faxes and e-mails - we need things in bulk quantity!
Any phone call should always be followed up with a letter - don't let them
"change the numbers/results"! (CLICK

Pass this on to as many pro gun people as you can please.
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.

(d) For a class D felony, the term shall be fixed by the court, and shall not exceed seven years; and3. Minimum period of imprisonment. The minimum period of imprisonment
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.

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
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

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
"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
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
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.

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.
HER TO GO TO HUD'S PRESS RELEASE SITE
(Keep trying, I could not get it to work the first time.)
Some of the Press Releases:
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
"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.
