Ortt: Dems Trample over Constitution

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

“Once again, Democrats have chosen to target the law-abiding gun owners of our state in order to push a political narrative instead of actually addressing the real crux of gun violence. Nine out of ten crimes committed with guns are done with illegal firearms. However, Democrats continually neglect these statistics and refuse to go after these criminals. Instead, they choose to go after the law-abiding citizens of New York and assault our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. These measures range from the unnecessarily duplicative to the theoretical and blatantly unconstitutional. I swore an oath to support and defend the constitution, and I question whether or not some of my colleagues have even read it.”
