Why Civil Immunity is So Important to Gun Owners!

Stand-Your-Ground legislation is getting gun owners fired up all across the state! Already almost half of the Republican Senate conference have added their name as cosponsors on our bill, and we have just had the bill introduced in the Assembly as well. As you’ll remember, this legislation is wildly popular across the country and is already law in thirty-six states. The Stand-Your-Ground law that we have drafted would remove any

Castle Doctrine v. Stand-Your-Ground in Albany

Since our announcement that the NYS Firearms Association has had Stand-Your-Ground law introduced in the State Senate and the Assembly in Albany last week, it’s clear that New Yorkers are ecstatic to be on offense!  And make no mistake, that’s exactly what we are doing with this bill, going on the attack! Sure, it’s 2020, King Cuomo is on the throne and passing this legislation sure isn’t going to be

Stand-Your-Ground Legislation Filed in Albany!

It’s time that gun owners in New York State go on offense. For years, gun owners and the organizations that supposedly fought for them in Albany have been reacting to what Governor Cuomo and his socialist allies in Albany have said or done. By doing that — by never going on the offensive and taking the fight to Cuomo’s radicals in Albany –- those organizations surrendered the playing field and

Mandated Mental Heath Evaluations to Buy a Gun?

  While hundreds upon hundreds of violent criminals are being released back onto the streets thanks to his ‘Bail Reform Bill’ last year, America-hating Governor Cuomo is launching another attack against law abiding New Yorkers. And folks, this one is as nasty as they come! SB-7065, being sponsored by Senator Sanders, would mandate that every gun owner in the state submit to a mental health evaluation before you could buy

New York State Firearms Association

It’s no secret that gun grabbers in Albany are some of the most arrogant people that you’ll ever meet in your life. (At least, until they are drug off to jail for corruption, but that’s another story.) They do everything they can to ignore gun owners in their districts and are well known for passing gun control bills in the middle of the night or advancing legislation through both chambers

Merry Christmas from the NYS Firearms Association

On behalf of the board of directors, I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Cuomo to Gun Owners: Surrender Your Social Media Accounts!

Less than three weeks! We’re less than three weeks away from the start of the 2020 session of the New York State legislature, and if you think that maybe Governor Cuomo and his America-hating cronies have done enough to attack our gun rights, I’ve got bad news. Far from easing off, sources indicate that Governor Cuomo will be working overtime to cram every gun control law he can think of

Are You In or Out?

If you forgot to complete your membership renewal forms for 2020, I hope that you’ll take a moment to do so IMMEDIATELY! With everything that we are facing in 2020 –- from the war we’ll be in with socialist gun-grabbers in Albany who want to crush our freedoms, to the election programs that we need to run to expose vulnerable anti-gun lawmakers — I am counting on you! In the

Don’t Let Gun Grabbers Shut Down the NYSFA!

“Don’t you understand? If you go after Cuomo as hard as you have been lately, you’re all but certain to be attacked through a bogus ethics complaint or phony civil suit!” That’s what one Capitol insider told me recently, as he warned me that fighting for the Second Amendment in New York State is a great way to get in trouble with Governor Cuomo. I wish I could say that

What’s at Stake...

By now you’ve likely heard about the special deal we are running for the month of July. In celebration of the 4th of July — and the freedoms that we enjoy as Americans –- the New York State Firearms Association has put together a special offer for all new or renewed memberships during the month of July! More about that in a moment. First, I wanted to take a moment
