    Welcome, fellow besieged New Yorker. If you have not already done so, I encourage you to join both NYS Rifle & Pistol, the NY affiliate of the NRA, and SCOPE (Shooters Committee on Political Education) and if you are from Westchester or LI the local groups there. There is an all-out fight against the Cuomo gun laws, which are easily the most anti-2A laws in the country (well, CA vies for that title also). These groups are the tip of the spear and need your support.

    Welcome Where in NY are you from.

    I assume you have a Glock and that's why you landed here.

    There is a Glock competition coming up in a couple of weeks in Fulton NY

    Membership in SCOPE and NYS Rifle & Pistol is cheap. And remember that as bad as the SAFE Act is (basically banning any new AR sales in NYS), if we don't stop Cuomo and his NYC liberals we will be WORSE than CA --

    1) Cuomo has already talked about confiscation of firearms;
    2) Cuomo has a 20 year history of anti-2A efforts;
    3) the NYC movement is led by Bloomberg and his $20Billion fortune, and they want microstamping, more restrictions on carry permits, and no lead ammo;
    4) many upstate judges are moving toward restrictions on carry permits;
    5) you say you are from Monroe County, which is one of the last urban counties with conservative Republicans running the county, the county clerk and the sheriff's offices -- it needs to stay that way but only if we all get involved.

    Too often the 2A crowd spouts nonsense like "all politicians are alike" and then they vote for the liberal Democrats because their union told them to or some other crap, then they get outraged when the liberals pass laws taking away their 2A rights. Get involved, get registered, and vote.
