Help Us Pass Stand-Your-Ground Law!

Governor Hochul and liberal judges across the state are releasing thousands of criminals onto the streets under the guise of ‘dealing with Covid 19 — while requiring gun owners in New York State to retreat if attacked by them!

Between that and their bail reform disaster, violent crime is spiraling out of control across the state! And because New York State does not have Stand-Your-Ground law, if you defend yourself from a violent criminal without first retreating, you could be the one headed to prison!

Of course, using defensive force, it’s all but assured that you’ll be facing devastating civil lawsuits, as well.

Stand-Your-Ground legislation would solve these issues by removing the current requirement that you retreat before taking defensive action, from any place that you are lawfully allowed to be.

Even better, this legislation stipulates that you are immune from criminal and civil prosecution unless there is probable cause that you committed a crime! This legislation (S-3718/A-05269) is being sponsored by Senator George Borello and Assemblyman David DiPietro and is gaining cosponsors quickly!

With the elections on the horizon, now is the time to make sure that your legislators cosponsor this important legislation as well! Please use our automated system to send your PRE-WRITTEN EMAIL to your elected officials in Albany immediately!

Once you’ve done that, take the next step and become a member of the New York State Firearms Association so we can keep fighting for you in Albany and in D.C.! Get involved at!
