Finally waving the white flag on the assault weapons ban

The Center for American Progress is waving a white flag on banning assault weapons in a study out Friday titled “Assault Weapons Revisited.” CAP authors Arkadi Gerney and Chelsea Parsons argue that gun control advocates should quit seeking to prohibit assault weapons like the AR-15 rifle and instead focus their energies on expanding background checks and firearms licensing laws.

New York: Gun Owners Brace for Historic Assault on Gun Rights in Albany

Next Wednesday, the New York Assembly and Senate will convene for the 2013 legislative session.  Anti-gun Governor Andrew Cuomo has expressed his desire to make gun control a top legislative agenda item.  Gun owners should pay particular attention to his State of the State address next week.   Your NRA-ILA has been closely monitoring and preparing to fight these extreme and senseless restrictions on the Second Amendment rights of New Yorkers.  These proposals do nothing except criminalize law-abiding gun owners, target shooters and hunters, and do nothing to prevent crime or impact public safety.
