    The following is a email I received from my NYS Senator, I called the Senator's office and asked if anyone in NY could sign this petition or did we have to be in his district, the answer was anyone in NY can sign and PLEASE GET THIS OUT to as many NY sportsmen as possible. I am adding the link to make it easier http://www.nysenate.gov/senator/william-j-larkin-jr

    Dear Friend:

    As you know, New York recently passed restrictive gun control laws that
    weaken the Constitutional rights of all New Yorkers. I strongly opposed
    this legislation because - like most gun control measures - it hurts
    law-abiding gun owners and does nothing to prevent crime. To make matters
    worse, this feel good, headline grabbing bill was rushed through both
    houses of the State Legislature without a single public hearing or any time
    for lawmakers and citizens to carefully review its contents.

    While we may have lost the battle, the war is far from over. Join me in
    sending a loud, clear message to Governor Cuomo and other lawmakers in
    Albany that instead of attacking law-abiding gun owners, the focus should
    be on increasing penalties for gun criminals and addressing mental illness.
    Help me send this same message to our federal representatives in
    Washington, who are considering similar measures for our entire country.

    If you have not done so already, please go to my website,
    larkin.nysenate.gov and sign my petition to build public support for
    repealing these restrictive gun control measures. If every New Yorker who
    supports the Second Amendment makes their voices heard, we can show state
    and federal lawmakers that more gun control laws are unnecessary, misguided
    and ultimately wrong for our state and our country.

    This is not the time to sit on the sidelines: every gun owner, hunter,
    sportsman and supporter of the Second Amendment must get involved. Now is
    the time to be heard. Please sign my petition today.


    William J. Larkin, Jr.
    State Senator

    Send him an email and suggest he ask his fellow lawmakers from the floor of the assembly, why is the safety and concern of the police greater than that of the citizens if there is a fear criminals will disregard this law.

    He is a good guy and his office has been extremely helpful with some of my questions, even to the point of calling me back after checking with the lawyers for interpetation of some of the ammo buying laws. He cannot fight this alone so please sign the petition and contact your own district Senator to voice your disapproval.
