The New York State Bar Association devoted the summer 2012 issue of its Government, Law and Policy Journal to an in-depth discussion of gun laws, public health, and public safety, and invited the Law Center, as well as other gun violence prevention organizations, public health experts, elected officials, and scholars, to contribute to the conversation. We are pleased to share our contribution, which analyzes the current laws on the books in New York.
Our article, entitled “Regulating Guns in New York: Existing State Laws and How They Could Be Strengthened,” focuses on six key legislative approaches to preventing gun violence that New York should adopt. For each approach, the article details New York’s existing law, or lack thereof, recommends how the law should be changed, and presents examples of relevant existing laws in other states and New York City.
Yep the Joyce-Funded LCPGV admits that New York City has some of the most stringent gun control laws, and yet is still a dangerous place. Of course their solution presented is:
-Gun Ownership Permits
-State Harrassment of FFLs
-”Safe Storage” Laws
With the exception of Microstamping that is both proven not to work even when used ad advertised (Not to mention degraded by legal use of the firearm) but can be easily removed from any firearm in a few moments with simple household tools, all of these actions have been tried before. As a matter-of-fact ALL of them with the exception of One-gun-month, are currently active in Massachuetts. One of them that is currently law here, “Safe Storage”, was ruled unconstitutional by Heller v. DC and McDondald v. City of Chicago. Virginia recently scrapped their one-gun-a-month law.
Why? Well because all of these initiatives have been proven not to work. Just like how New York City’s unique set of laws haven’t worked.
Good Job Joyce shills, the first step to recovery is to admit you made a huge mistake. I won’t hold my breath when it comes to demanding we repeal these laws that don’t work. I mean they don’t work, but why chance individual liberty?
Anti-freedom, not Anti-Gun!
