Bump Stock Baloney In New York

We knew this was coming…. New York’s proposed ban on bump stocks.  Interestingly, a senate republican, Andrew Lanza (24th District) is the sponsor for the Senate version.

The information below came from a great web site: http://www.gunpoliticsny.com/?p=15699.

JAN 9, 2018 State Legislation

State of Politics reports that Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie backs a ban on “bump stocks”:

“… Lax gun laws are the reason handguns, bump stocks and military-grade assault rifles are crossing state lines and finding their way into our communities. We must take action as a state to curb this deadly pipeline …”

This is a phony non-issue, but that won’t stop antis from pushing the issue.

Heastie co-sponsors A-8717 which currently sits in Codes. Senate companion is S-6918 which is somewhat unusual in that it has a Republican sponsor and Democrat co-sponsor. This is the one they’re likely to try and move. Alternate version is A-8913/S-6902.
