Protecting Our 2nd Amendment Rights

Help Senator Maziarz Repeal and Replace Restrictive New Gun Control that Weakens the Second Amendment Constitutional Rights of Law-Abiding New Yorkers! 

In a vote held in the state Legislature last night – Monday, January 14, 2013 – the Second Amendment Constitutional freedoms of New Yorkers were weakened with passage of restrictive new gun control.  I strongly opposed this legislation that was rushed through both houses of our state Legislature without a single public hearing or the proper time to carefully review the bill.

Law-abiding citizens are NOT the issue!  Millions of New Yorkers own firearms and do so safely, responsibly and legally.  The real issue, the real threat, is dangerous criminals having guns and the seriously mentally ill obtaining access to guns.

Monday’s vote was only the beginning, not the end, of a critically important debate.  I believe we must repeal and replace the restrictive parts of the enacted legislation.  We should focus on increasing penalties for criminals who use firearms and addressing the issue of mental illness.   However, I cannot do it alone: I need strong Second Amendment supporters like you to stand strong – and stand with me.  

Please sign my Legislative Petition to build public support for repealing and replacing the restrictive gun control measures.  If every New Yorker who supports the Second Amendment makes their voices heard we can forge a true public safety remedy that addresses real issues such as dangerous criminals and mental health without curtailing the Second Amendment.  

This is no 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!  I will personally deliver these petitions to the Governor and Legislative Leaders.

YES Senator Maziarz, I support your efforts to preserve and protect the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding New Yorkers by repealing and replacing restrictive new gun control.  Keep standing strong for our Constitutional Freedoms!
