STATEMENT FROM SENATOR OBERACKER

Peter Oberacker

July 01, 2022

ALBANY, 07/01/22 -- State Senator Peter Oberacker (R/C – Schenevus) today commented on his vote in opposition of gun control legislation:

“Today is another prime example of what one-party Democrat rule in Albany has to offer - zero transparency, criminal-friendly policies, and complete disregard for the Second Amendment rights of millions of New Yorkers. 

“Legal gun owners, who meticulously follow the law, are being further overburdened with more unconstitutional regulations that fail to improve public safety.  In fact, there are many who will now face new dangers, including our volunteer first responders.  I guarantee that these new gun control laws will not deter one criminal and will only contribute to more senseless violence.  Lawbreakers know they have a free pass in New York and this action will only further embolden those who look to do harm to others.”
