  1. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I was contacted by Sen Farley and asked to write a letter as to what products are out there that need legal clarification as to legality, such as the MR2, Bullet Button and the like. All things that the NY State Police refuse to give an answer on. Sen Farley asks that letters be written to your...
  2. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    For anyone who had firearms or firearms parts (pre-94 magazines) that they either can no longer possess, or have to modify/spend money to modify (MR2, M1 carbine barrel bands, etc...) to make "compliant", can you write that off as a loss on your NY State taxes? I'm sure some people will have...
  3. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I dug up the owner of some property that's adjacent to the property my parents own (90 acres vs 5 that my parents own), and I'm in the process of writing a letter to try to get permission to hunt it either this year or next (this year may be too late, we'll see). Normally, I'd want to go knock...

    Apparently the folks at Midway are a bit behind the times. They will not ship 10 round magazines to NY because: "Thank you for your email. On January 14, 2013 Governor Cuomo signed into law the New York Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act. This law restricts the sale of detachable...

    OK, not sure if it even matters or not (because our elected scumsucking officials don't care what we say), but, hopefully all of you already did this (and are continuing to do so), but, just figured I'd try and do my part.... NRA-ILA | Write Your Lawmakers Guys, we can't stop hammering these...

    I suspect they did. How about the Colorado law? They are a menace to our rights.
  8. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    . I was really wondering about this wording when I first read the SAFE Act. Not being a lawyer, I figured it was one of their "look at the smoke over in that corner, while the real fire is in the opposite corner". Anyway, last night I was reading the lawsuit that the NYSRPA filed and it points...

    This is my letter I just sent them. "Hello, I am writing you as a concerned American citizen residing in NY State. I am a husband, father, home owner, tax payer, registered voter and tremendous firearm enthusiast. I currently own many firearms made by manufacturers you represent, and with...

    A co worker of mine asked me to write and editorial with a pro-gun view for a minority newspaper/website that he is involved with. Afer viewing the site, and noticing that all contributors were minorities, I wasn't sure how this would be received since I am a caucasion male. My picture wasn't...

    I usually prefer to be quiet, off the radar, and not attract attention to myself, but the upcoming potential regulation and legislation is giving me concern. Feel free to take the text I wrote Chuckie below and send it to your legislator. Only way to prevent the impending disaster to gun rights...

    It's game time. Senator Feinstein will introduce new legislation for an updated Assault Weapons Ban when they reconvene in the new year. This time they are coming after anything with a detachable magazine; it's not just scary black rifles any more. Politicians, even the ones out of touch with...

    Got the FN FS2000 today... Heres just a few quick pics showing how they ship these. A bit nicer than a regular cardboard box...and surprisingly a bit safer than the "hard" clamshell type gun cases...which I find to crack in shipping, and have the contents shift and mix around , causing nicks...

    I was going to write a letter to see if it was possible for someone to make it so dutchess county could do the amendments on the spot rather than waiting for a judge to sign off on it. It's been 4 and a half weeks for me just to get my initial pistols put on my permit. (Yes I have been carrying...
