Co-Sponsor Stand-Your-Ground Law!
Petition to the Members of the New York State Assembly and Members of the New York State Senate
Whereas: Violent crime is spiking out of control thanks to Kathy Hochul’s bail reform laws and the insane gun control laws that law abiding New Yorkers are forced to live under; and
Whereas: Under current law in New York State, gun owners like me can be criminally prosecuted or bankrupted in civil court for defending ourselves against a violent criminal; and
Whereas: Law-abiding gun owners here in New York should be able to exercise their God-given right to self-defense without fear of facing baseless prosecutions or frivolous civil suits, just like gun owners in thirty-seven other states can; and
Whereas: Stand-Your-Ground law would simply state that a gun owner like me could use justifiable force, without having to retreat from any place that I am lawfully present; and
Therefore: As a constituent, I am writing to ask you to cosponsor the Stand-Your-Ground legislation (A-5433/S-1120) that Assemblyman DiPietro and Senator Borrello have filed! The NYS Firearms Association will keep me informed about the status of this bill.
