MAP: See what counties have passed resolutions against NY gun law

2

 

Fifty-one of the 62 counties have passed resolutions in opposition to the state’s gun-control law passed Jan. 15.

The website, www.nysaferesolutions.com, has kept track of the resolutions, which were passed last month and earlier this month in response to the controversial law.

Upstate, all but three counties have passed resolutions in opposition to the law — Tompkins, Broome and Albany counties. The rest are Westchester, New York City and Long Island.

The resolutions, which are ceremonial, have called for either a repeal of the law or major changes. Gov. Andrew Cuomo and state legislative leaders have indicated they will seek some minor modifications this week, such as allowing for 10-bullet magazines, but limiting the number of bullets allowed to be loaded to seven.

There are other changes introduced in a budget bill late last night.

  2. The ATF Has Yet to Be Convinced That 3D-Printed Guns Compare to the Real Thing

    Around the same time that Cody Wilson took the stage at SXSW to discuss his new for-profit 3D-printing design database earlier this month, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) was finalizing his application to become a federally-licensed firearms manufacturer. Wilson stood in front of the crowd and talked about how everyone should have access to technology that made it easy for them to print gun parts in their garages.

    He talked about Defense Distributed, the organization he and some friends set up to offer 3D-printed gun designs to the masses for free through a website called DEFCAD, and finally addressed the government’s role in the manufacture of firearms. “I’m not soliciting help from the government,” he said.

    “We are trying to follow the law as it is now and be good citizens,” Wilson added. “I don’t view government as a benign institution.”

    Well, the government doesn’t seem entirely sure what to think of Wilson’s own institution. I talked to a number of ATF representatives, all of whom sent a similar message: 3D-printed gun technology has arrived, but it’s not good enough yet to start figuring out how to regulate it.
