I will be appearing as a guest on the Cable TV Show
"Direct Line" on Monday 8/14/00 at 6 PM (1st half) on Time Warner Cable
Channel 6 and the 2nd half of the previously taped show on Wednesday 8/16/00,
9 PM on the same Time Warner cable channel 6. These shows had been previously
broadcast on US Cablevision and Media One. The host of the show is Terance
Michos, who does a great job - the topic of the show is the over-population
of deer in New York State. Two other guests appeared with me at the same
time - they are: Glen Cole Region #3 NYSDEC Wildlife Manager and Ann Muller
of Wildlife Watch - who represents what appeared to me to be the anti-hunting
community and also anti-gun. Folks in Orange County should be able to pick-up
this broadcast. It was a very interesting time and Ann blames us for shooting
the frogs, calls me a killer and blames us for the violence in children.
Please watch this show if you can and let me know what you think.
Sporting event targets gun safety
Middletown – Sam Osborne Jr. smiled as he watched
his 5-year-old son Andrew concentrate on shooting the five targets set
up in frontof him.
He hit them all.
Hunting has been in Osborne's family for generations, and yesterday the older Osborne passed the tradition on to three sons. A few times, Kevin, 9, asked his dad for help while Christopher, 10, got up to say that he shoots for fun and "that's about it." "By teaching them the proper way to handle a gun, the proper safety procedures," the boys' father said, "they get the responsibility."
The Osbornes, of Middletown, were among the 150 or so people who spent the day at the Shawangunk Fish and Game Association's first-ever Sportsmen's Extravaganza, which continues today.
The weekend event is being held at the end of Beakes Street on 200 acres of land. Organizer Tom Plocharczyk spent a year putting it together.
Yesterday, dozens of families spent the day fishing, shooting, trapshooting, blacksmithing, and learning how to shoot a bow and arrow and flyfish.
Carmine Montalbano, a safety instructor from the National Rifle Association and the coach of the Middletown Pistol and Rifle Association, was on hand at the target youth shooting range to teach gun safety.
To use an air rifle, a child has to be at least 8; to use a .22 caliber rifle, at least 12. "No child should have a gun," said Dan Maher. "If there's a gun in the house, he should be schooled on it."
Newburgh 8/19/00 T H-R Nine-year-old finds loaded gun
A 9-year-old boy found a loaded handgun under a tree
Wednesday evening on Ann Street, at the east end of Newburgh, city police
The child's mother told police her son brought the gun to her, saying he found it at the foot of a tree, covered with grass as if someone had hidden it.
The mother found the gun was loaded. She removed the bullet from the chamber and called police.
07/27/2000 GUN CONTROL S8234 DELIVERED TO GOVERNOR awaiting his action.
Expect to see Gov. Mario Pataki sign the gun control bill in the next few days to much fanfare and a large press.
It would seem that the time has passed because the bill was passed on 6/23/00 and the Legislature adjourned on 6/24/00. I guess that it all depends on what you me by "adjourned".Governor has 10 days, excluding Sundays, to act on bills sent by
10 days before adjournment. If Governor does not act in that time,
the bills automatically become law. Governor has 30 calendar days
after Legislature adjourns to act on other bills; these bills
may not become law without the Governor's approval ("pocket veto").

(2) Paragraph (1) shall not apply to the possession or transfer of any semiautomatic assault weapon otherwise lawfully possessed under Federal law on the date of the enactment of this subsection.
I still do not know how this is going to work out. I have talked to Assembly people and the Sen. Padavan's office and they said that nothing was banned. We will have to sit tight and see what the State Police tell us. It looks like our greatest risk is the added of the phrase; "OR FUNCTIONING FRAMES OR RECEIVERS OF SUCH."
I talked to a local Senator who told me that his
current understanding of the new law is that if you did not own your assault
weapon on 9/14/94 then you are going to be a felon. (Too bad for
all of the people who have sold their gun and upgraded to a better gun
or did not buy an assault gun before the set date. Too bad you did
not know before the magic date that in 6 years they were going to ban any
gun that you bought after that date. Too bad if you were born too
late and it was illegal for you to buy a gun before 9/14/99.)
I am not going to say that the Senator is wrong but based on what the antigunners said when the bill passed nothing is banned. I am trying to find someone in Albany who know what it means. The law is vague in that it does not say who has to "LAWFULLY POSSESSED PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER FOURTEENTH, NINETEEN HUNDRED NINETY-FOUR." Lawfully possessed by an FFL, by an importer, by someone in NY State, by you and nobody else but you? It does not say "lawfully possessed by the current owner...
We will have to wait and see how Spitzer decides to handle it. He is the only one who really has the power to define what it really means. Get ready to start collecting your nickels and dimes, dollars, ten dollars, fifty dollars, hundred dollars to start with. I guess that we are going to see how much support all of those pro-gun people are going to give when it cost them money. You know, those loud pro-gunners who were sitting on their hands at home on the election day when Spitzer won.
If anyone has any specific information that I can
confirm please e-mail me. Letters from your local representative
would be great.

LOS ANGELES, July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Just prior to the Republican
National Convention, likely Independent voters favor
Republican George W. Bush's position on abortion, taxes and gun control over Democrat Al Gore's. In a poll conducted between July 6-8, 2000, the non-partisan polling firm Zogby International surveyed 1,008 likely Independent voters
nationwide. The poll has a +/- 3.2% margin of error. Key results are as follows:
-- 69% of Independent voters favor a candidate who
wants better enforcement of current gun control laws, including
mandatory jail time for those who commit a crime with a gun, as compared to 25.1% who support a candidate favoring more gun control laws, including mandatory gun locks. These results are similar to a Feb.2000 "Zogby American Values" poll, which indicated a 68.3% to 29% split.
-- 71.7% of Independent voters would support a candidate who believes the Second Amendment of the Constitution protects the rights of individuals to own guns. Only 21.5% indicated support for a candidate who believes that the Second Amendment protects the rights of states in the form of militias to own guns.
-- 47.2% of Independent voters believe that crime
is down for the seventh consecutive year because of tough laws such as
mandatory sentencing, no early parole and "three strikes you're out." 37.4% of Independent voters believe crime is down because of economic growth and programs to aid troubled youth and communities. In February, 54.7% of respondents believed that crime reduction was because of tough laws compared to 31.6% who chose the economy and programs to aid youth and communities.
-- 76.2% of Independents support a candidate who favors federal prosecution for criminals committing a crime with a gun. Only 13.5% support a candidate that believes criminals should be allowed to plea bargain.
