Smullen Condemns Further Infringements on Constitutional Rights

A statement from Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R,C,Ref-Meco) on the continued passage of restrictive gun legislation in New York

Assemblyman Robert Smullen (R,C,Ref-Meco) warns of another unjust gun control bill, forced through the Assembly on March 4, 2019. Assembly Bill 2686A creates penalties for anyone who fails to properly follow the strict firearm storage regulations set by the state.

“My colleagues on the other side of the aisle continued their infringement on our constitutional rights today,” said Smullen. “With the stroke of a pen they have turned my law-abiding friends and relatives into criminals. Downstate politicians who have police on every corner are not accustomed to what response times are like in Upstate New York. Taking a firearm out of a complicated storage process could be a matter of life or death. We already have laws on the books that require storage for firearms; this is outrageous and could cost lives.”
