Weeks after the November 3rd elections we are just figuring out who won key State Senate races after a massive number of mail-in ballots had to be counted.
Of course, similar to the mail-in ballots in the race for the White House, the overwhelming majority of these ballots were for anti-gun candidates here in New York State, supposedly.
As a result, many Senate races that were won by pro-gun candidates on election night have been handed back to Cuomo’s radicals, prompting Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins to declare a supermajority in the State Senate.
In fact, Stewart-Cousins announced just yesterday that she and Governor Cuomo may be calling the legislature back into session YET THIS YEAR to advance portions of their agenda that stalled earlier in 2020.
And one of the main gun control bills that Cuomo’s radicals would love to pass is mental health gun control legislation.
This legislation (S-7065) is being sponsored by Senator James Sanders and Assemblyman Thomas Abinanti, two of the most corrupt politicians in Albany, and would force you to complete a mental health background check each time you want to buy a firearm!
With the elections behind them, Cousins, Sanders, and Cuomo would love to pass this legislation during the holidays when gun owners are distracted.
That’s why we have prepared this email campaign, which allows you to voice your opposition to this legislation with your State Senator and Assemblyman automatically — showing them that gun owners are NOT distracted!
Obviously, no gun owner wants a criminally deranged person walking around carrying a gun. But there is already a process in place to deal with people like that.
Just consider the facts.
Under current law, those who exhibit ‘warning signs’ can already be detained by law enforcement — at minimum -– and can be taken to a care facility for treatment if necessary.
As anyone in law enforcement will tell you, you can tell A LOT about a person’s mental health with the answers to just a couple questions.
But Cuomo’s mental health gun control legislation has nothing to do with attempting to help individuals who are in need of real mental health treatment.
On the contrary, this legislation would authorize Governor Cuomo to aggressively weaponize ‘mental health staffers’ across the state and instruct them to deny your right to own a firearm for just about any reason they want!
It wouldn’t matter if you’ve been a gun owner for decades.
It wouldn’t matter if you have a spotless criminal record.
It wouldn’t matter if you’ve not been charged with a crime.
The truth is that this legislation has absolutely nothing to do with public safety; instead, this is a tool for radical socialists in Albany who want to break the back of gun owners in this great state once and for all.
You see, tyrannical dictators have been labeling political opponents as ‘mentally defective’ as a way to punish them throughout history.
Former Russian leaders Stalin, Khrushchev, and Brezhnev imprisoned countless people who disagreed with their Communist agenda, leaving them in prison or labor farms or worse…
China’s Chairman Mao did the same thing, denying people who questioned him the right to vote, travel, and much more, claiming that they were mentally defective.
And now Governor Cuomo wants to do the same thing: use the results of politically motivated mental health evaluations against gun owners who disagree with his socialist gun-grabbing agenda!
I’m sure you’ll agree that this is the very definition of tyranny!
Some gun owners have allowed themselves to think that Cuomo and his allies have more or less passed the gun control bills that they want with the SAFE ACT of 2013.
But that’s not the case.
There are plenty more freedoms that they want to take away from us with legislation just like this.
It’s our job, as gun owners, to make sure that every politician in Albany knows that the we are watching their every move and that they will be held accountable for their votes on legislation like this.
And if you possibly can, please send us your most generous contribution, as well.
I don’t know about you, but the idea of letting Governor Cuomo and his allies ram through a bill that would label proud gun owners as mentally defective, without doing all we can to stop him, is simply not an option for me.
We must push back!
I know that’s a lot, but with the stakes this high, doing nothing is just not an option. So if $100 is simply not possible, please agree to a donation of $50, $25 or at least $10!
Some people say that New York State is gone, and that we should all just move away. But I don’t believe that, not for a second!
I meet wonderful people every single day, patriots, who care deeply about our flag, our nation, and this great state!
In many ways, freedom in this great country got its start in New York State, as over one-third of our nation’s Revolutionary War battles were fought right here!
So we simply can’t give up. Our forefathers stood for freedom and carved out the greatest country the world has ever known, freeing us from the tyranny of Europe.
But that freedom is under attack!
And it’s up to you and me to make sure that our children and grand-children will inherit the same freedoms that our forefathers passed down to us!
For New York State,

P.S. Late yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins announced that after the counting of the mail-in ballots, multiple Republicans who won their elections on November 3rd lost, giving her a super majority in Albany.
Now Cousins in talking about convening the legislature yet this year, to pass key pieces of their leftist agenda.
The primary threat facing gun owners is Senator Sanders’ S-7065, which would force you to complete a mental health background check each time you want to buy a firearm!
And if you haven’t yet done so, please renew your membership in the NYS Firearms Association so we can continue our struggle to save our Second Amendment in Albany.
