Advocates push for more gun-control laws (UPDATED w/ video)


From Gannett’s Ashley Hupfl:

Outside the state Capitol, thousands of firearms supporters are attending a rally today against the SAFE Act, the strict set of gun-control laws passed in New York last year.

IMG_1441Inside the Capitol, gun-control advocates were pushing for expanding state laws to require more storage requirements, a one-gun-a-month purchase limit and a system of marking bullets with a unique code when they’re fired.

New Yorkers Against Gun Violence and State Legislators Against Illegal Guns spoke out in support of the SAFE Act and called for more legislative action to further gun-safety laws.

“We must move forward,” Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee, D-Suffern, Rockland County, said at the news conference. “It was a proud moment for us to be here and vote for the SAFE Act because we took a step in that direction of protecting our families and protecting communities, but we need to move forward and do more.”

Jaffee said she supported legislation that would limit child access to guns by requiring them to be locked up in a safe or gun cabinet when not in use, increase background checks and impose the purchasing limit.

“We have to stand together, firm and strong, even those who are advocates to have more guns,” she said. “You need to be with us, to stand with us, to ensure that our children are not in danger. Let’s do it together, let’s protect our children.”

Assemblyman David Buchwald, D-White Plains, said Westchester County already has a child access prevention law and supports a statewide law.

“It’s been on the books for many years, it’s helped in numerous circumstances and there’s no reason why that model can’t be extended to the state of New York,” Buchwald said. “It’s time to make progress on this issue.”

  1. so a few liberals inside get the photo op while 7000 outside in the cold are ignored… was this a direct order from king cuomo

  2. A few “useful idiot” anti-American marxists, communists, socialists and their globalist elite handlers inside the capitol trying to push for citizen disarmament while thousands of brave American Patriots are outside supporting the fundamental limitations the Constitution guarantees!

  3. How is it that 28 people are receiving more media attention than the THOUSANDS outside? No, media isn’t biased.

    We will continue to fight for our constitutional and civil rights.

  4. I don’t want to hear one more person tell me the “slippery slope” does not exist. Last year NY state, already one of the strictest gun-control states, passed sweeping gun-control laws demonizing the most popular rifle sold in the US as well as trying to further limit how many bullets your gun can hold. Here, barely a year later, they want more? That IS the “slippery slope”.

  5. Can I upload or email you a picture of the 7,000-10,000 Pro-2A protesters that were outside? Shouts of “Freedom!” Echoed across the mall & I’m sure rattled the capital windows.

  7. August Braun on

    In assemblywoman Jaffee’s rant, she kept talking about “protection” incessantly. If memory serves me correctly, Hitler used this word extensively in his speeches prior to registering and confiscating guns in Germany.

  8. The SCOTUS must take up the NY lawsuit and stop this crap once and for all, for the whole country, most notably other authoritarian states like CT, NJ, CA etc.
