” Opposition to New York’s extreme gun control law the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act continues and elected officials are stepping forward to promote full repeal of the bill that was hastily, strong-armed into law.
“The Republican majority made this happen,” said Rep. David J. DiPietro (R.-East Aurora), a freshmen state assemblyman representing parts of Erie and Wyoming County in western New York.
Dean G. Skelos (R.-Rockville Centre) who is the majority leader of the New York State Senate is to blame, he said. “He voted for the bill. He allowed the bill to come to the floor.”
The former Village of Aurora trustee and mayor said that Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo brokered a deal with Skelos to enact the SAFE Act. “They threatened Long Island Republicans that if they did not vote for the bill, $1 million would be donated to an opponent for their seat.”
“Skelos and his Long Island delegation sold us out,” he said.
An overwhelming majority of Democrats in the state’s assembly will not pass a repeal bill, and the governor will not sign it, she said. “Our hope is in the lawsuits pending and the courts determining the law unconstitutional.” “
Long Island “Republicans” are nothing of the sort . They are all John McCain style republicans which is to say , no republican at all .
” We are always pleased to showcase a talented shooter on the “other side of the Pond.” This week we present the record-setting green machine of Vince Bottomley, creator of the Precision Rifle WebZine. Vince shot his way into the record books with this rifle, breaking a 5-year-old UK 1000-yard, 5-shot group record. Then, a month later, he lowered his new record to 2.670″. He set that mark with Norma brass, Berger 180gr VLDs, and Reloader 25. Vince’s BAT-actioned rifle started life as a 6.5-284. But after one season, he rechambered it to a 7mm WSM (a 7mm/300 WSM to be precise). The 7mm experiment was a huge success, and Vince now proudly owns the most accurate 1000-yard Light Gun in the United Kingdom.”
Here is a video of Mr Bottomley in America getting to shoot some weapons that are banned in his home country of the UK .
“ Vince Bottomley, Editor of Target Shooter magazine in the UK comments on his experiences in the USA at SHOT Show. Here Vince, a top-level benchrest competitor, gets a chance to shoot pistols, revolvers, AR-15s and other guns that are now banned in the United Kingdom. The video starts with an interview with S&W ace Jerry Miculek. “
A little video would probably be welcome , don’t you think ? Nothing quite like moving pictures to convey the awesomeness of firepower.
