Re: “Building support for gun safety

I do not support the NY SAFE ACT. I find the majority of the provisions in the law unconstitutional and am certain they will have no positive impact on gun violence. The provisions within this act are simply a knee jerk reaction with no empirical evidence to back up any assertion that lives will be saved. In fact, only evidence to the contrary exists. If you want to take away someone’s rights, you need to prove there will be a benefit to society in doing so. I have not seen that proof.
I find the fact that I cannot hand my rifles down to my own children unacceptable. The fact that I have to register rifles I already lawfully own is unacceptable. I feel as though I’m being treated like a sex offender and it’s highly insulting. The fact that NYS is further limiting the number of rounds in a rifle or pistol is proof that the gun control agenda is progressively escalating infringements upon our second amendment rights. Standard capacity in many of the now banned rifles is 30 rounds. NYS had already limited the rounds to ten and is now further limiting them down to seven (then back to 10 by court order). There were already limits on cosmetic features which are also being further limited down to none. What’s next, background checks for ammo purchases? Oh wait, that was included as well.
I and many like me will fight this new law with all of the resources at our disposal. The manner in which this law was enacted and it’s over zealous provisions has polarized opposition to this law. This of course is going to hamper any real attempts at making life saving changes. This law was a mistake, and it needs to be repealed. Let's focus on the real problems like our revolving door justice system and our mental health issues.
