As you know, I prefer to take a bottom-up approach in dealing with issues facing our community, and I want to hear from you. Legislation has been introduced to outlaw so-called “bump stocks” in New York State. Bump stock devices are used specifically to make semi-automatic weapons function similar to fully-automatic weapons. Under current law, it’s illegal to attach bump-stocks to semi-automatic weapons, but it is legal to possess, sell and purchase them.
Are you in favor of outlawing the purchase, possession and sale of bump stocks in New York State?
