Mandatory Storage Violates Constitution

A statement from Senator Rob Ortt (R,C,IP,Ref-North Tonawanda)

“Not only is today’s firearm storage legislation irresponsible, but it is also impractical and unnecessary. The passage of this legislation further highlights the utter disdain New York City regressives hold against the legal gun owners of our state and illustrates their ignorance regarding Second Amendment protections. By requiring firearms to be stored and locked away in safes, lawmakers are infringing on the fundamental American right of self-protection, and they are doing so in a manner that has already been ruled unconstitutional in D.C. v Heller. Either Democrats have no idea how firearms work or they are solely resolved to make them cost-prohibitive and inaccessible to American citizens."
