Statement by Senator Bill Larkin on the Governor's Gun Control Legislation

William J. Larkin, Jr.

January 15, 2013

Senator Bill Larkin (R-C-I, Cornwall-on-Hudson) issued the following statement:

"I voted against the Governor's proposal because I firmly believe it is too restrictive on our legal, law abiding gun owners and does not adequately address the issue of illegal weapons and their use during the commission of a crime.  Gun violence will not be stopped by restricting lawful, honest gun owners.  It is career criminals and their access to illegal weapons that are the main problem facing our cities, towns and villages – not people who support the second amendment."
