The war is on to repeal Stand-Your-Ground law in state legislatures all over the country!
The White House, Congressional Democrats, the media, and their allies here in Albany think that in the wake of recent mass shootings, you and I are going to give in to their demands.
I can tell you one thing: that’ll never happen.
While the NYS Firearms Association is going on offensive with Stand-Your-Ground law in Albany, our national affiliate, the American Firearms Association is doing the same thing in D.C.!
In fact, I’m proud to announce that AFA has filed National Stand-Your-Ground legislation in the House and United States Senate this week!
This legislation was filed by Rep. Matt Gaetz and Senator Markwayne Mullin and would protect gun owners from malicious Soros-funded prosecutors who are pushing a political agenda.
Specifically, this bill would:
>>> Codify the American people’s right to use deadly force to stop a predator before he can carry out a violent crime that could result in ‘great bodily harm’ or death.
>>> Make it clear that a gun owner who is forced to defend himself or another innocent person, may do so without having to retreat first, as is the law in 38 states.
>>> Extend these same protections to those who threaten to use force, but don’t have to because the threat has stopped, as was the case with Mark McCloskey.
>>> Prevent criminals from using Stand-Your-Ground law as a legal defense by limiting its use to those who are ‘legally present’ and not engaged in criminal activity.
As you can see, passing this legislation is exactly what we need to do in an era where justice has been perverted, and law-abiding gun owners are the ones facing spurious charges!
This legislation is so new the legislation hasn’t even been released to the public yet.
When this language is released, we’ll be asking you to contact your Congressman, urging them to stand up for the Second Amendment by cosponsoring this bill.
For now, please make a donation so that we can alert gun owners about this bill, and so we have the ammo we need to put pressure on our Congressional delegation!
>> DONATE ANOTHER AMOUNT TODAY! <<
Every day, our legal system is taken over by Leftists at the state and federal level. We all know it.
So while there may have been a time when we could trust in state and federal prosecutors to pursue justice, those days are over.
Passing Stand-Your-Ground law is how we restrain these out-of-control prosecutors! Please join the fight today!
For New York State,
NYS Firearms Association
P.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz and Senator Markwayne Mullin have just introduced federal Stand-Your-Ground legislation, to protect gun owners from malicious prosecutors!
This legislation — similar to the laws that are on the books in 38 states — would allow all Americans to defend themselves without having to retreat first.
