Personal: From Aaron Dorr

Once my wife and I get our kids to bed on Sunday evenings, I usually sit down and work on my ‘to-do’ list for the week ahead.

With our ongoing fight to stop Biden’s AR-15 ban, our federal lawsuits against Biden, and working on refining legislation for next session, I like to hit the ground running on Mondays.

And while I worked on this list, I couldn’t help but think about how far we’ve come over the last five years. Gun control bills defeated. Legal actions taken. Putting vulnerable politicians on notice that they’ll answer for voting against our freedoms.    

Very few states have an on-the-ground organization like the NYS Firearms Association.

And it just occurred to me that I don’t say thank you to the members of this organization nearly enough. 

Some NYSFA members support our fight with their donations. Some with calls and emails to legislators. Some with getting friends and family to sign our petitions. Some by coming to the Capitol.

Each of your actions — augmented by tens of thousands of like-minded gun owners across New York State — make up the backbone of the NYS Firearms Association.

Without you, we couldn’t fight for our gun rights in Albany.

Without you, we couldn’t fight for gun rights in court.

Without you, I could not do my job.

So for giving me that ability and for making the NYS Firearms Association a powerful fighting force for gun owners in New York State, I give you my sincere gratitude.

For New York State,

Aaron Dorr
Executive Director
NYS Firearms Association
