Crouch: Do We Need More Gun Laws In New York?

A Statement from Assemblyman Clifford W. Crouch (R-Bainbridge)
January 29, 2019

“As a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and Sportsmen’s rights, I was deeply concerned with the constitutionality of some of the bills brought to the floor today, while other bills were redundant and already addressed at the federal level,” said Crouch. “While I whole-heartedly support measures to keep firearms out of the hands of individuals who will harm themselves or others, I think oftentimes gun legislation only affects law-abiding citizens, while criminals and those who wish to harm us will do so with or without restrictions. New York already has some of the strictest gun laws in the country; I do not think that this is an issue we as a Legislature should be focused on this session.”
